Borders opening today

South Australia opened its borders to the entire country at 12:01am this morning.

Fully vaccinated domestic travellers can now enter SA without quarantining if they are coming from an area with no community transmission of Covid-19.

Before crossing the border everyone entering the state must complete an entry form and receive approval.

Some Tatiara locals are excited about the change, while others are apprehensive about what it means for them.

Cross Border Callout Facebook page administrator, Paula Gust said she was worried about the implications the border opening may have.

"The hardest thing is not knowing," she said.

Ms Gust runs the Facebook page which helps answer questions for cross border community members; a lot of whom are worried and confused.

Some locals are excited to see their families again and have been looking forward to today, November 23.

Bordertown resident Chris Mackereth said she was excited to see her family, who live in Horsham, again.

"I haven't seen them since early in the year," she said.

Some Victorians and returning South Australians have been waiting to cross the border for a long time, some up to six months.

Police at the border crossing said about 300 cars were processed at midnight and so far it had been a relatively calm and easy process.

A steady trickle of cars has been going through the crossing, and so far the line-ups have been nothing like when borders have previously opened.

Currently at the crossing point between Bordertown and Kaniva, it is taking less than 10 minutes to process each vehicle's occupants.

People have been crossing the border from Victoria for a number of reasons including, reuniting with loved ones, going to weddings and funerals, and returning home after being locked out.

Most travellers have found the border crossing paperwork and process easy and simple to understand.
