Posting this in case it would be useful for people in my situation
  • I am an Australian Citizen.
  • My wife had to travel to France for a couple of weeks.
  • She was on Bridging Visa B (applied and granted 2 weeks before her trip) waiting for her Partner visa 820.
  • Applied for an exemption for coming back to Australia, a week before leaving Australia: Got rejected saying you must be outside of Australia to be able to apply for an exemption.
  • She left around 2 weeks ago.
  • Applied for another exemption last week. This time approved after almost 7 days.

All the best...

An hour. I applied as a spouse, not de facto.
Was it on a working day and working time?
Apologies - just seeing this. If you’d like specifics - It was 10:26pm on a Sunday night when I applied in the States, and I received my response at 11:47pm the same night (so an hour and 20 mins) That means it was 12:26pm on a Monday when received AEST. It was not a holiday. Not sure if it has any bearing or not.

Hey there! Did your outcome status say 'Closed - Exempt'? I think I just got exemption approval but am in such disbelief and shock that my brain is trying to convince me I'm reading it wrong

I didn’t see any sort of status. I applied and then they sent an email with my approval. But this has been a few months now so they could’ve changed how they handle these exemptions now, as time has passed. The only way I knew I was exempt from the travel ban was the email (See third paragraph in the attached pic)

Either way, if that is the case, kudos to you! I hear only 1/4 of travel exemption applications are getting approved, so consider yourself one of the few. Congrats ��

Thank you! I feel very lucky! After you were contacted, did they give you any next step details? Since I got approved when they had a portal, all I got was notification that my portal decision changed, but wasn't given any further info about next steps as far as hotel quarantine planning and wasn't given an official document to print to prove exemption at the airport. I can't seem to find anyone to contact either with these questions, did you get anything with those details?
