Based on the latest health advice, from Monday 31 January, 2022, proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements will apply state-wide and be expanded to include new higher-risk venues.
Proof of vaccination is already required to enter some venues and events in Perth and Peel.

Venues, staff and patrons will all have a shared responsibility when it comes to showing proof of vaccination, with venues required to take reasonable steps to ensure all patrons are double dose vaccinated, or have a medical exemption.
The WA Government has launched the ServiceWA app – a free, convenient and secure mobile application that will help Western Australians with proof of vaccination requirements.
People can also show proof of vaccination either in a digital or paper-based form, along with acceptable forms of identification if they do not use the ServiceWA app to show proof.
Posters and materials are also available to download to help businesses communicate about proof of vaccination requirements.
Frequently asked questions about showing proof of vaccinations will be available soon.
