COVIDSafe Visitor Guidelines
RMIT is working hard to ensure our facilities are equipped to safely support our staff, students and visitors and prevent the spread of COVID-19. In line with the Chief Health Officer’s Directions provided in Victoria’s Roadmap: Delivering the National Plan, all visitors to The Capitol aged 16 years and over must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a valid medical exemption. Children under 16 do not need to be vaccinated but must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.
Before entering The Capitol, visitors over 16 years of age will be asked by a Security Guard or Front of House staff member to show one of the following upon entry:
- Your vaccination status via the Service Victoria app on your smartphone
- A printout of your COVID-19 Digital Certificate or an official Immunisation History Statement with a valid photo ID
- Where appropriate, an official medical exemption and a valid photo ID. Details on proof of valid medical exemptions can be found below.
Without one of the above, you will not be able to enter The Capitol.
RMIT does not keep or store this information.
Once our staff have sighted your vaccination status, you will be asked to check in via the Services Victoria app using our venue QR code.
To make things as easy as possible for you and for our staff, we ask that you please link your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app before your visit to ensure a quick and efficient entry process. We ask that you please be patient and courteous with our staff who will be facilitating this process. Read how to link your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Services Victoria app.
For the safety of other visitors and staff, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines to keep The Capitol COVIDSafe:
- Wear a mask. In line with current government advice, masks are required to be worn inside.
- Arrive early – new entry requirements mean that you may need to join a queue to enter the building.
- Maintain at least 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
- If you are feeling unwell, please do not visit The Capitol. Contact us if you need to cancel your registration or tickets.
Other measures in place at The Capitol include enhanced cleaning throughout the venue and hand sanitiser available for visitors.
Information on medical exemptions
You may be able to receive a medical exemption if you are unable to be vaccinated because you:
- have a medical contraindication to COVID-19 vaccines, or
- have an acute medical illness, including COVID-19 infection for up to 6 months (or earlier if the medical practitioner specifies an earlier date)
If you have a medical exemption, please let our staff know. You will need to provide a copy of your immunisation history statement from the Australian Immunisation Register showing your approved vaccination exemption. This is the only way to provide evidence of a medical exemption.
