Congratulations! I'm in a similar situation and have applied several times, but haven't received an exemption yet. What kind of statement did you write that they considered to be compassionate reasons? I'm really hoping to get an exemption as well. Thank you!

PMV holders applying for a Travel Ban Exemption.

Knowing what to write and enclose, for a PMV/300 visa holder to be permitted entry to Australia, seems a popular question at the moment.

You need compelling or compassionate circumstances.

If you have previously spent a lot of time together, and COVID has affected your normal routines, that might be a compelling reason.

A compassionate reason would be something more than the normal waiting period apart that you might be used to.

Each person might be different, based on the information in your original application.

Whatever you write, you must try to view it from an outsiders point of view. Show your wording to someone who is not biased in your favour, and see how it affects them.

Exemptions in Australia are not given to everyone ... Even Clive Palmer has been denied entry to Western Australia as the state government remains adamant interstate borders will remain closed for months.


An example of a rejection situation:
Mr xxx applied for an exemption to travel on 1 May, explaining that his wife was now caring for two young children alone in a new country where she knows no one. On Thursday, he was notified his application had been rejected.

There are concerns over “inconsistencies” in which applications have been granted.

it seems the department has stopped processing visa 300, but in the same time they are processing onshore visas so quickly ,which is so messed up.
instead of prioritizing separated partner's visas,they are doing the opposite.
we applied for PMV in Feb.2019 ,our case was almost getting finalised in March 2020,then everything just stopped.
on the department's website,they are saying to prioritize applications for those in the exempt categories which include immediate family members .
they blindly considered all PMV applicants as non immediate family members,and stopped processing.
we emailed the onshore processing team,and they say that they are processing based on who applied first.and it's normal in partner visas that you suffer separation. in the same time they are processing onshore visas in no time as if they are giving away charities!!
this department is full of crap.

The 300, being an offshore visa, is normally processed offshore. Hence the issues with current processing, due to limited offshore operations. Also of course, with no travel permitted, not much point in finalising a visa that cannot be used. Some holders are already mentioning that their visa might expire before they can use it.

The onshore visas are more often processed in Australia. Fewer complexities.

Onshore visas get priority, partially due to no incoming travel needed, and therefore less risk of virus transmission.

However, recent exemptions have been shown to have brought more infected visa holders into the country.

I've seen that email used for some 820 visas from outside Qld. They could well do some offshore 309s too at the moment.
