Came on visitor visa on the 07.05.2019
Medicals 26.05.2019
Police check front loaded twice, 03.05.2019 and February 2020
Advice that visa is ready to be finalised and I need to be offshore 25.06.2020
Left country 07.07.2020
Visa granted 07.07.2020
Came back 09.07.2020

Processing office: Pretoria
Agent used
Congrats!!

Can you please let me know to which country did you exit from Australia? My wife is waiting since March to exit Australia and return but there are no commercial flights available.

Dubai has opened its borders for visitors since this month 07th july, I took that flight and came back. I would ask you to be informed about the cap on arrival in Australia, coz I got 2 flights cancelled for Australia, before entering.

That's great! So you were allowed to enter Australia on a 309 visa.

Are you in Hotel quarantine now? Which State?

Hi Guys

Anyone granted exemptions recently? Just want to get a feel of timeline on how long it is actually taking.

Cheers

When did you apply? Was this recent?

3-4 weeks prior, exemptions were being granted in couple of hours/days at max.

How did you know you were given the grant for exemption? Did you get an email from DBIP?

Vey yes got an email from DoNotReplyGlobal and i applied on the 29th june. And granted 30th june. Meaning just 10 days before.
During that time i have seen people being granted in weeks. The key is to give a genuine compassionate reason...and loads of proof. Honesty is what they want.

I applied couple of days ago.

That is a bit too long I guess. If I was you, I would proabably apply again just in case it was missed and maybe include even more proofs?

Or maybe ring and find out if it is urgent travel.
