According to the Western Australia Police Force, the 32-year-old man and the 22-year-old woman allegedly entered WA from the NT on November 19 without an approved G2G pass.

On December 1, police were notified that the pair had travelled back into WA without approval. They were taken into custody at Mount Nasura and each charged with eight counts of failing to comply with a direction and one count of giving false or misleading information.
The pair are set to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on December 13.
