Exemption to travel

Hello Forum Members

I've just joined and already have a question.

My 27 year old step daughter is an Indonesian citizen and currently in Jakarta. My wife (of 12 years) has Australian PR. My daughter has lost her job due to the COVID-19 situation and is stuck in her apartment in Jakarta where she had been working from home for the last 3 months.

She has a currently tourist visa for Australia. It was a 3 year multiple entry visa which still has 2 years validity.

In Jakarta she has no family or support network and is starting to suffer physically and mentally. In fact, I am starting to worry about her mental health and would like her to come here for a couple of months.

I have read the exemption to travel requirements and there doesn't seem to be a criteria which fits. I am asking if any of you experienced people think I have any grounds to pursue this and if so, how I should go about it?

Thanks for any input.

Fill out the DHA's exemption to travel form.

You need to demonstrate compelling and compassionate reasons as your step daughter would not be considered an immediate family member. You should provide evidence of her situation (mental, financial, and her relation to you). It's difficult but worth a shot!
