My wife is a permanent resident of Australia. She's applied for travel exemption twice (to leave Australia) but in both occasions her request got denied.

Response below:
"The Australian Border Force (ABF) has considered your request and the authorised decision maker has determined that your travel is not exempt from the travel restrictions. If your circumstances change, please submit a new request."

She had a return ticket in April 2020 after arriving in Dec 2019 but couldn't go ahead because of Covid outbreak so she rescheduled her flight after a year to visit her family.

She is planning to stay overseas for more than 3 months (which is one of the reasons that you can get exemption) but it's unusal to get rejected without getting a clear response from department of home affairs!

Wondering if anything can be done to get approval?
