RAISE AN ISSUE TO MAKE A CHANGE
The current Victorian Cross Border Permit system requires us to apply every 14 days for a permit. Even if you are a Vic resident – if you cross over into SA, you need a Vic Permit to return. The checkpoints are not active, however VICPOL can do spot checks at any time, and have been doing this recently. There are strong penalties for entering Victoria without a permit. These new rules are temporary but there is currently no date when they will end.
Cross Border Community Members are fed up with this system, and we need to get the decision makers to come up with a better solution. The only way this will happen is if we ‘stomp our feet’ – by RAISING THE ISSUE with the Victorian Cross Border Commissioner, Mr Luke Wilson.
The Vic permit system is adversely affecting communities & businesses on BOTH sides of the border.
