The first plane-load of Victorians free to travel in Queensland with no restrictions is due to land in Brisbane just after 9am this morning, as Victoria celebrates 32 consecutive days of no new coronavirus cases.

The flight arrivals mark the end of a nearly five-month hiatus of any exemption-free travel from Victoria to Queensland.

South Australia also re-opened its borders to Victorians from midnight, although Victorians will still be required to fill out a form and get pre-approval before entering SA.

QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced last week that Victorians and Sydneysiders would finally be free to enter her state from today, after months of strict controls.

Queensland authorities officially closed the border to Victorians on July 10 as Victoria's fatal second wave of infections rapidly worsened.

Prior to that, Victorians were entering Queensland but were required to undertake mandatory quarantine.

Western Australia is yet to reveal when it will allow Victorians to enter.

More than 6,800 Victorians came forward for testing on Monday.
