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?

To apply for approval to travel for the first time, you must complete an online registration through the G2G PASS website so that you are set up with a login. You are then required to complete a declaration about your particular circumstances. Approval 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.

If your application is approved a copy of the G2G PASS will be emailed to you and will also be accessible through the G2G app if you have that installed on your smartphone. If you do not have the G2G app, you should print a copy of the emailed G2G PASS and take it with you when you travel.

WA Police will ask to see a copy of the G2G PASS when you travel.

G2G app

Once you have registered and have a login, you can install the G2G app and use your login to access your application. You can update your application if required before it is considered. 

The G2G 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.

QR Codes with G2G app

Once you have an approved G2G PASS and if you 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 are approved to travel and you will be able to move through a checkpoint faster.

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

Unsuccessful and revoked applications

If your application was rejected you may apply again using your existing login. You will need to address the reasons for the rejection in your further application. 

If you open your G2G app and it says that your G2G PASS has been revoked, please email g2gwa@police.wa.gov.au.
