Queensland police say a man travelling directly from a New South Wales hotspot was caught twice on a bus trying to enter Queensland with false documents.

"We removed a 42-year-old man off a bus a couple of days ago in Coolangatta," Gold Coast Chief Superintendent Mark Wheeler said.

"That person had come directly from a hotspot in New South Wales.

"We removed and refused entry to the state to that person.

"We will allege that that person then went and got a border declaration, made a false declaration, got back on a bus, was intercepted some hours later.

"(He was) removed and fined for a false declaration and of course that person was shown the backdoor to our state."

Earlier this morning Queensland police also released details of a separate incident at the border which saw two people charged with drugs and firearms offences.
