This ABC news story suggests Border Force liaison staff will monitor travel to Australia
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-...l-ban/12075340


I guess they will have to approve each traveller before boarding taking the onus from the airlines

It doesn't give a time limit or entry date, it just says I can arrive while my current visa is valid.
Thank you for the information. And congratulations by the way. I just submitted a request for my fiancÚ who is out of the country, but has a PMV grant.

Bans on Visitor Visa

Hi everyone,

These are certainly challenging times.

My husband and I were planning to travel to Sydney on 15th May (tickets booked).

I am an Australian Citizen and my husband is on a Visitor Visa 600 valid until 1st June.

With the new travel ban imposed, I am trying to figure out if my husband will still be able to fly to Sydney with me. Can anyone help answer this? The information available on the immigration website is very vague.

We have checked on VEVO which shows his visa is still "in effect" but I am worried as there are talks of visitor visas being cancelled.

Any help is appreciated.

An immediate family member of Australian citizens and permanent residents
Details
In this case, immediate family means:
spouses
dependents
legal guardians
Without visa - You can't come to Australia until you have a visa. Apply for a visa and include proof (such as your marriage certificate, your birth certificate or birth certificate for your children). If we let you travel, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days, at home or in a hotel.
With a temporary visa (except for Partner and Child visa holders) - Attach proof (such as your marriage certificate, evidence of your de-facto relationship such as shared finances or property, your birth certificate or birth certificate for your children) and submit this form. Do not travel until we advise that you can. If we let you travel, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days, at home or in a hotel.
Partner and Child visa holders (except Prospective Marriage visa holders) can come to Australia. You will need to self-isolate for 14 days, at home or in a hotel.

This is what I found on the home affairs website hope it helps 😕

Thank you!

Where it says to "submit this form" it takes me to an enquiry page with a question that asks if I want to contact an overseas post.

Use that and probably select "Compelling and Compassionate reasons".

Then add your relationship proofs.

Will they be processing 300 visas or not now?

I'm a PMV sponsor & I'm less than happy about the situation. My fiance has been prevented from entering Australia due to the travel ban. The travel ban is officially stated as being indefinite (no end-date). The Australian Government granted a Visa, but has now prevented us from using it. We have spent many thousands of dollars & now we cannot use the product. To me, this is theft & I am going to ask the Australian Government, which Police department (State or Federal) should I report the crime to.

Here is what I am going to do about it:
1. I shall identify the correct person / minister on Twitter
2. I shall post my question publicly
3. Wait for a reply

Yes you are right. This is very unfair.

1.The minster for immigration I'd David Coleman.
2. As it is a Federal matter you will need to see the Federal Police.
3.Your wait may be for an extended period.

Of course the alternative is to follow the lead of others here who have gone on line and obtained an exemption!
