Echuca-Moama border zone permit amended

By Anna McGuinness

THE reasons for travel across the Echuca-Moama border changed again last week.

The NSW Government amended the permitted uses for the border zone permits to allow people to receive or provide care or assistance to a vulnerable person, including for personal care, mental health, domestic violence services and services for crime victims.

Previously, the permit had only allowed travel across the NSW-Victoria border for work, education or to obtain medical care or supplies.

People who intend to cross the border for the new reason will have to apply for an updated border zone permit on the Service NSW website.
