Flying to Australi ASAP

Hello everyone,

I recieved my 309 grant letter on 19.10.2020 and was applied on 04.02.2020. (I pray to everyone who's waiting the visa and having hard times cause of seperation)
I need to fly to Sydney as soon as possible but as yous know it is hard to find to tickets and all tickets are so complicated. I'm posting this thread to know if there's anyone on this forum travelled to Australia with 309 visa recently. Can you share with me your expreinces about quarantine any other observations i would like to know them all.
Lastly I already asked the embassy about any other forms i need to fill or anything i have to apply to enter to Au. They said no but i'd like to double check here also.

Thank you

Did you go through the Beirut office? Where are you flying from?

Just print you visa grant letter off and carry it with you.

Congratulations!!!!! My understanding is that your visa is digitally linked to your passport but to definitely travel with a print out of your grant.

If I were you I would be trying to get to Dubai or Doha and flying to Syndey from there on either Qatar or Emirates, booking directly with the airlines. You should be able to get from Istanbul or Ankara to one of these fairly easily, and book a separate leg to Sydney. You will have to collect your bags and pass immigration but I think its easier than trying to find one flight path that gets you from A to B. Just check transit rules and allow yourself enough time, as well as making sure it is within the time of transit rules. Doha have a great hotel where I stayed recently with a 13hr stop over. Thats been my experience anyway getting between Melbourne and Tehran.

Quarantine is brutal but necessary and at least you can do it at your arriving destination.

Very excited for you, great news

Thank you so much!
There was no flight via emirates or Qatar airlines so last night i found one on kiwi.com. So hopefully i will fly from Istanbul to Jakarta via Turkish airlines and then i'll take Garuda indonesia to Sydney from Jakarta. However there was only this ticket reasonable and still it is self transfer &#x1f937;&#x200d;&#x2640;&#xfe0f;

I am so happy you found a flight! This looks like a good plan. Have you booked it yet? Try and book directly with the airline if at all possible because refunds and re-bookings are much harder via a 3rd party. When do you leave? Please let us know how you get on and when you arrive safely in Sydney. Good luck!

I have booked with 3rd party. Couldn't arrange it other way.
I'll take the flight on last week of November. I will have 4 hours at Jakarta to take the other plane to Sydney. Do you think that would be enough?
I will share my journey in details hopefully and thank you for all your kind wishes &#x1f495;
