COVID-19: G2G PASS - Digital travel app

The G2G PASS is an initiative by the West Australian Police Force (WA Police) to manage and enforce travel restrictions that have been put in place since Western Australia was declared to be in a State of Emergency. This initiative is a digital solution that is quick and efficient for people that need to travel during these restrictions.

How does it work?

You make your application through the G2G PASS website. Once this application has been approved you can proceed to download the app on your smartphone. These approvals can take up to 72 hours but may vary depending on the number of applications being processed. If you do not receive an email approving your application, it means that your application is still pending.

The smartphone app is compatible with: 

  • Apple iPhone model 5S or later,
  • iOS 9.3 and higher,
  • Most Google Android mobile devices running 5.0 and higher are also compatible.

A PDF copy of your approved G2G PASS application will be emailed to you. If you do not have a compatible smartphone and are unable to download or use the G2G Pass app, you should print a copy of the approved application and take it with you when you travel. The WA Police will ask to see a copy of the approved application.

Unsuccessful and revoked applications

If your application was rejected and you have questions or concerns, you should email g2gwa@police.wa.gov.au. You should include your full name and the application number in the email.

If you open your G2G PASS app and it says that your G2G PASS has been revoked, please email g2gwa@police.wa.gov.au.

QR Codes

Once you have been approved for G2G PASS and have downloaded the app, you will be provided with a QR code.

A QR code is a unique image that can be scanned by WA Police through the app. It can quickly verify that you have an exemption from the travel restrictions and you will be able to move through a checkpoint faster.

Your QR code will remain visible through the G2G PASS app at all times. Even if you have network connection issues.
