Has anyone seen or heard any opposition to entering on an ETA (601) right now? My eta is still valid and I have already received my exemption to travel. I’ve read about others on a 600 visa - but haven’t seen anything regarding an ETA.

I understand it that you can't get an exemption without a valid visa.
Hence, your ETA must be valid for that exemption.

Be good to have that confirmed though.

You could call the airline, if you can't get through to anyone else.

What is your other visa application?

That’s what I thought - although aside from inputting my passport details, It didn’t ask me for which visa I was traveling on or for any grant numbers in relation to the eta.
I asked because it’s the only visa that I see that they’re not allowing you to apply for with covid. I understood that to mean any new applications, reckoning my current will still be valid, but wanted to be sure.
My other visa will be **cowers slightly** an 820, though obviously not yet applied for. My husband is Australian.

You would need to apply for an exemption to come back, (not just the BVB) and you would stand a good chance of being locked out of Australia until it is all over. Unless you have a valid travel reason.

Temporary visa holders should be aware that if they wish to return to Australia while COVID-19 restrictions are in place, they will generally need a travel exemption.

On return they will face a 14 day quarantine process. Not sure if it would be taxpayer paid for someone who travels voluntarily.

If you are an Australian citizen or a permanent resident you cannot leave Australia due to COVID-19 restrictions unless you have an exemption.

To obtain an exemption, you need to fill certain conditions.

Thank you for your reply.
So what you are saying is, there will be a high chance I get locked out of Australia and cant come back even if I am granted an exemption and being married to an Australian citizen?! :/

No, not if you’re married to an Australian Citizen. You’ll still need to apply for the exemption to both leave AND re-enter, but so long as you’re married and have the exemption, doubtful you’ll be “locked out.” Leaving the country will probably be harder for you actually. To have the exemption to enter, you’ll need to upload your marriage certificate and/or other proof. (I applied for mine with only my marriage certificate and my passport and was approved within an hour). You will however most likely be required to quarantine for 14 days in a hotel as the other person said.

Cannot be sure of anything, but there are many who do not get an exemption, to enter to rejoin their partner.

Obviously if you do apply for an exemption, and get granted one, you will be able to come back.

However, to get the exemption, I am guessing that choosing to leave Australia, with the knowledge that it is difficult to come back, may not stand you in good stead with the decision makers.

It does however depend on your reasons for needing to leave Australia, and what your exceptional circumstances are.

Do you come under one of the reasons listed for an exemption to leave and then re-enter?

Thanks for your reply. Where should I apply for exemption for leaving Australia? Isn't that exemption only for the Australian Citizens and Permanent residence?
Also when did you apply for your exemption to return to Australia? Before you leave or while you were outside of Australia?

Thank you! I dont believe my reason to leave and come back to Australia is listed (going to have to renew my French residency permit) but isn't exemption TO LEAVE Australia only for Australian Citizens and PRs?
