A new app has been launched to assist in processing people with an exemption through our WA borders and checkpoints.
The border controls and travel restrictions have proved invaluable in helping stop the spread of COVID-19. Yesterday, the State Government launched a new app to assist in processing those people with an exemption, through WA borders and checkpoints.
The G2G App has been developed by local West Leederville firm GenViz, in partnership with WA Police and Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development. The app was designed as an efficient tool for freight, transport and other key industries to travel through the borders, reducing time and interaction at checkpoints.
Businesses or individuals can now apply for approval to travel, if they fall under an exempt category. People can still use the existing paper-based process or help police at checkpoints by providing documentation to support their approved travel. If approved, a ‘QR’ code is issued to their phone via the G2G app or can be printed out for presentation at a checkpoint.
The app will help streamline the process, particularly for business and industry, fast-tracking movement through the checkpoints. It will help give people confidence that they are approved to travel into a different region, ahead of their journey.
