Covid 19 exceptional circumstance

Good afternoon all,

I have visited a migration agent today regarding my partners current visa situation.
Long story short : he’s on a 12 month single entry visitor visa which expires 02.09.20. He would have been here for 12 months and my agent advised me that it will still be ok to apply for a new visa with the approach that his stay has been affected by COVID 19 and it is not safe to return back to his home country which is why he’s applying to stay LONGER than 12 consecutive months...

I think I have received sufficient information from my agent to be able to apply by myself (I can’t afford the extra costs for an agent to apply)

I just wanted to ask a quick question to see if anyone has been in a similar situation:

What reasons have you stated in an “exceptional circumstance” statement regarding “COVID - 19”?

What things can I write under this circumstance for him to stay in the country. I already have
• Flight restrictions
• Health concerns






Thanks to whoever helps me out!
Enjoy the rest of your day 🙂

How can you know it won’t be safe to return somewhere in 4 months time?

If your partner can afford to support themselves on a visitor visa for a year and then beyond that without working, surely they can afford a modest agent’s fee if you remain unsure after getting some (free?) advice? Most Registered Migration Agents do not have very high charges for visitor visas.

Did you not get advice from your agent as what you should put as "exceptional circumstances'? They would be in the best position to know just what those circumstances are.

This is not the first time you have asked this question here and the answers you received then are just as valid now.

There are no flight restrictions on flights from Western Australia to Indonesia, there still daily Garuda flights from Perth to Jakarta,

There are no restrictions on Indonesian Citizens entering Indonesia.
As for health concerns , who dosen't have them.

If you want your partner to stay it would be best to give it your best shot, invest in professional help from a Registered Migration Agent , no matter what the cost
