You are safer being here than many other places at the moment.

I won't be surprised if the compulsory hotel quarantine is in place for another year, of course fully funded by the Federal Government given the amount of money they have splurged on handouts. So get in and have a relaxing hotel stay free of charge before you start your journey here 🙂 All the best!
Yes I think you're right that hotel quarantine is here to stay for quite some time. We figured we might as well just bite the bullet and do it now! We are currently in Canada where the health care system is fantastic, but I am hoping we don't get sick during travel and that quarantine goes smoothly. I've heard they are fairly considerate of young families so I have my fingers crossed.

Now if only we could get a rush on our young daughter's citizenship by descent....

And thanks for your well wishes!

The Australian National Cabinet, on the 29th May 2020, gave the go-ahead for states and territories to start charging international arrivals for quarantining costs.

Here is a new example:

International Arrivals into Queensland will have to pay their own Quarantine costs from the 1st July 2020.

A single traveller will be charged $2,800, which includes $910 for food.
A couple would pay $3,710, while a family of four would pay $4,620.


Even Australians from Victoria, travelling to Qld will also pay this fee.

Prior to this it was funded by the State Governments.

Those are pretty steep fees, although most flights are landing in Melbourne and Sydney(so far hotel quarantine is paid by the government) with a few scheduled for Adelaide soon. It s no wonder Melbourne is now the epicentre of the second wave. It ll be interesting to see how this if enforced - like you ll be allowed on a flight only if you have a confirmed hotel stay, on the other hand how long can the government let Aussies stuck abroad without much money to stay put? It s certainly going to get very messy.

Hi all - hope you've all seen an update today from the Australian High Commission? For those who haven't - flights are currently in turmoil. Between 3 and 17 July your "flights could be severely delayed, disrupted or cancelled and you could be asked to fly to a different Australian city". No flights to Melbourne operating during these two weeks and a cap will be imposed on arrivals into Sydney Airport for the next two weeks.. They encourage those who have made travel plans to return to Australia over the next two weeks to contact their airlines as soon as possible to see what alternative arrangements are available. You can also follow this news on Australian High Commission on facebook for updates.

From midnight tonight:

Overseas arrivals will be capped at 450 passengers a day, with a maximum of 50 passengers allowed per incoming flight.

DFAT's Smartraveller guidance:

"If you're scheduled to fly into Sydney in the coming days and weeks, confirm your itinerary and onward travel plans with your airline,"

With a 6 week lockdown in Melbourne I don't see any flights landing for the entire period. This could further reduce the number of people wanting to fly in from overseas.

Hi All,
we are on the same situation and we decided not to take any risk of traveling as my wife is pregnant. however, i contacted the immigration and told me the the conditions of the visa cant be changed and we could write letter after the IED pass ro request for extensions. also, on the site and on another immigration agent website ( don't remember which one ) I understand the IED is a condition only. not meeting the IED don't automatically invalidate the visa ....meaning that we still can travel after the IED pass. it is up t the immigration department to cancel the visa due to violating its conditions. in this case, I don't see the immigration will be draconian about it. hope this will help

Yes, the Home Office have told me just to let them know when I am able to travel. Still worrying however to go past the IED but in these circumstances I don't see them simply cancelling visas.

Hi @dcarpenter20,

We are considering to go past the IED as well, which in our case is at the beginning of December. One thing that I understand from a few replies I got in another forum, is that most likely the Home Office will request a new medical check up for all members who applied for the visa, new police check certificates and possibly more (for instance to update the form about the travels you had in between the IED and the new entry date).
The financial side of the medicals is one aspect which I can overcome, but the actual back and forth with case officers and sluggish responses etc... is probably going to be very annoying. I believe the medicals and police certificate expires on the IED. Have you any additional info about this topic by any chance?

Thank you

Marco
