Queensland has since mid-April required returning Queenslanders and exempt travellers to fill out a form declaring they had not passed through a COVID-19 hotspot in the past 14 days.

"Can I urge all Queenslanders - please do not go to Victoria," Ms Palaszczuk said.

From noon on July 3 - this coming Friday - anybody travelling to Queensland who had been in Victoria in the past 14 days would be required to undergo 14 days quarantine in a hotel - at their own expense.

But they will be required to fill out the declaration of not having been in Victoria for the past 14 days.

Those who have will be required to pay for their own two weeks of hotel quarantine.

This will apply to people coming in via the roads or the airports.

And anybody refusing testing in quarantine will be locked down for a further 10 days.
