Most or all of us know that this time is so difficult for us that have loved ones overseas and unfortunately it is what it is for now.
With caronavirus spreading around the world its a new ball game for everyone and every country.
I'm sorry but I feel comments like that come from people that have their partners with them. I cannot justify what risk I am to Australia by leaving it for months? Also paying for my quarantine on return and any testing needed. It's absolute crap and all about controlling people.

I am in Melbourne and now in lockdown for 6 weeks. I live alone. I cannot see my parents or my siblings and my fiance is in the USA. My mental health at an all time low. This is something I NEED, not that I want.

I can understand your feelings on not being allowed to leave Australia.

I can only assume they are concerned about you coming back, and wonder if they would be different if you were not returning until it is all over.

Maybe they should have a system for those who wish to leave, where the individual pays for compulsory quarantine etc., even in advance just to be sure.

In fact, if everyone had to pay their own quarantine now, maybe the reduction in numbers being allowed to enter Australia would not have to be imposed.

These reductions appear to be to try to keep the quarantine costs and issues down.

International arrivals into Perth, Western Australia, are being capped at 525 people per week, (equal to 75 people per day), to limit strain on the state’s COVID-19 hotel quarantining system.
WA are discussing charging everyone for quarantine, but appear to have jumped at the chance to just cut down the numbers allowed to enter, even if only until they start to charge.

My partner is NOT with me! He is in Nigeria and Nigeria is the hardest and longest wait time of all the countries! I also NEED to be with my fiance in Lagos but i cannot because of the Coronavirus. He wont be able to get a visitor visa because he is a nigerian more than likely, and Immigration are racist against such countries. Plus I am also a carer for my mother so leaving and returning into quarantine is not an option for me. You are not the only one in a situation that sucks. I still cant go out much nor see many people because my mother was discharged from hospital with pneumonia just before Perth was locked down.
Luckily we have whatsapp, zoom, and other video services which has to suffice for right now.
Like i said our govt is doing what they feel is best for our country. Yes it sucks melbourne is in lockdown again but it is what it is. We have all been in lockdown and I am in Perth and we were the strictest of all Australia during the national lockdown.
We are all in a situation we cant control and all have our own mental health issues to deal with.

Exactly, prepay it so there is not getting out of it or changing your mind.I would literally do any of those things. I am planning on a three month trip minimum and if I can find that I can work remotely then I will stay the full 6 months of my visa.

At this stage the virus situation has changed so much in 3 months, imagine in another 3-6? I guess it's just not having the choice that kills me.

I understand long distance, I've been doing it for a while, but not having anyway to close the distance while waiting for his visa to process is horrible. I don't know anymore..

Any idea or advices regarding the above or everything is stopped due to covid-19

Cheers

Thanks dude

I imagine it is hard to judge who plans to leave for a shorter period vs a longer period. And with numbers on entry into Australia capped and a backlog of people wanting to return, adding to that list is something the government is keen to avoid irrespective of the payment of the quarantine cost.

There is no need to become agitated with the posts in this thread.

In these troubled times people are anxious with not being with their partners.
If you find their posts of no interest , scroll past.
If you have a specific query start a new thread.
I see you have only recently applied for your visa, unfortunately it is a long and rocky road, only made worse by the Global Pandemic.

These "other posts" are in relation to someone whose partner is a PMV applicant, and is choosing to try to go to them as they can't get to Australia.
