Australians may not be able to travel overseas until 2021

Hoping to jet off overseas again sometime soon? You could be waiting a while.

Australians are being told we’ll have to wait until the end of this year – or even beyond – before international travel will re-start.

The federal government says now is a good time to start “dreaming” about your next holiday but you may have to look domestically first.

“Look, it’s impossible to tell at present precisely when travel restrictions will be removed, because that will be a matter dependent upon the health advice at the time.,” Federal Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham told the ABC on Monday.

“This is a time where, unfortunately, people can’t undertake holidays and they won’t be able to overseas for quite some time to come.

“Certainly this time is a good time for a bit of dreaming, a bit of planning, think about that Aussie break that you might take when we do finally get to the other side of this.

“There may come a time where at least we can relax some of those travel restrictions within Australia and that will give you a chance to be able to get out, if you’re in a position where you can afford to do so – perhaps to support some of those regions who at the start of the year were dealing with bushfires, or indeed the many other tourism regions who are struggling at present because of the loss of business.”

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said the federal government was considering subsidising domestic flights for airlines hammered by the pandemic.

“Indeed, I spent the weekend talking about that very thing with Virgin, with Qantas, trying to make sure that we’ve got the trunk routes between capital cities,” Mr McCormack told the ABC.

“We’ll be looking at what we can do in conjunction with the airlines who are cooperative.”

But Mr Birmingham contradicted that, saying it was “unlikely”.

“I think that is an unlikely step, but ultimately we’re going to keep working through very carefully through this crisis.”

Whar about the people who have families overseas because the visa cost to come to Australia is prohibitivly expensive!

I cannot believe our government has stopped overseas travel. Firstly, our deaths are lower than other countries. Other countries have opened overseas travel. A lot of the deaths have been for elderly people who may have other ailments. Why then are younger people not allowed to go back to work? With this very restrictive government, we need to question this irrational and dictatorial logic. Also, then the government uses emotional blackmail and political propaganda to use a virus detection app when we do not have access to the security access code. We have little information on our information is being used. How long will the government have access to it? Or how our information will be deleted? If so when and how?

In Vietnam, I got tested with a thermometer at the dentist to check my temperature. They have little rates of deaths. Yet, I cannot travel there. They did basic tests. Why can’t we do the same? What is with these expensive tests? While the government supports domestic travel to get the economy back on its feet, I ask why? People are still recovering from the terrible bushfires and trying to rebuild their houses. We have received no bushfire recovery coverage. When has the money gone to? We have legal deputes on the crowdfunding on the bushfires efforts, again no coverage. Perhaps domestic travel is more expensive than overseas travel?

I have never seen so many people been stood down or cannot gain employment. People do want to work or have a holiday due to stressful working conditions. Yes, suicides, domestic violence, mental illness and bankruptcies will increase. We need to challenge this virus propaganda. Remember we had a bad economy before this virus, now we have even more debt.

I am sick of these false community advertis****ts “that we are all in this together” with an emotive hook as a national anthem. It desensitises us. Then I am spoken as a child by a health medical officer on tv stating the same annoying soundbites to wash our hands, etc. Feeling isolated is problematic and real. I want to experience overseas travel, and not to be stuck in Australia. I zoom fatigued and irritated when I see happy and brain-numbing home cooking, gardening, or house design shows. I think of Coles or Woollies marketing to increase food panic buying strategies. And yet we are meant to smile and be grateful when we receive our toilet paper or tissues.

Small businesses are struggling out there, with these ridiculous rules. These social conditioning rules for a small number of deaths in NSW. There are more deaths with alcoholism, drug overdoses, domestic violence, car accidents or suicides, than this virus. Why is there hyperventilation on this issue? We need to question these restrictive actions. Why are we being not able to travel to overseas countries up to 2023! How can the government make this determination? Currently, we have a restrictive nanny state!!! With these sociopathic sentiments, which are crippling our people, businesses, and hope. I think of the tourism industries and airlines which are struggling to make ends meet. We have an extremely high record of youth unemployment, they have little hope and future, linked to a generational debt which may be unpaid. Also, the government released employment statistics that did not include people who have given up for looking for work. We need to fight against these crazy irrational actions.

Interestingly, we see food shows. People eat and drink more when they stressed. Amazingly, they did not shut the bottle shops, whereby a lot of people enter. Was there social distancing here? Is this really an essential service? Linked to alcoholic marketing sponsorship, sporting events are pushing for relevancy. Rugby players can fly from New Zealand incredibly, while others are paralysed by this ridiculous odious government regime. We have a gambling problem, which is exploited in this country.

We need to stand up, voice our concerns for positive change, remove these governments. No jobs, or job creation, and with little concerns for connecting overseas families together. This prime minister uses pathetic and reactive statements and just smirks. What happens to the 600,000 people in September after Job keeper stops? We need to focus on strengthening our human rights. The freedom of travel and work are human rights.

With guerrilla news marketing on commercial networks, we need to a***yse this situation carefully. False empathy marketing will not solve this dilemma of a restrictive government. Once we draw back the curtain, we see the false underlay of destructive politics at play. Some people are becoming more depressed, suffering from insecurities, social isolation, and mental health issues, financial burdens and bankruptcies which remain unreported. This why we need a collective voice to raise these issues together to drive positive action and change. When we speak on this forum, it promotes thought and eliminates social isolation.

I do hope that also go’s for foreign tourists (Chinese) from coming to Australia

I feel that. My husband lives in USA. It’s going to be over a year until we see each other again. I understand perhaps not for holidays in 2020, but I hope in due time, they can make allowances for immediate family to see each other (if we can even find flights). We would happily quarantine for 14 days either side too. As long as we get to see each other again! I hope people who are with their family – or will be able to see them immediately when social distancing is lifted – appreciate how lucky they are!

I’m in a similar situation, I’m Australian citizen by birth and I married a Filipino citizen in September 2019. Making me a dual national by marriage. I last saw my wife at Christmas 2019. Plans to see her in February were scuttled by a volcanic eruption and now coronavirus has not only prevented all travel it has done the following.
-put a hold on all current visa applications in process. $10,000 later lol.
-put enormous strain on internet networks and video call quality.
I would dearly love to see my wife and Phillipines family.
It’s unlikely I will be with her on our first wedding anniversary.

I doubt I’ll qualify by the government’s measure of compassionate grounds.

To those others complaining about social distancing who are not on “the wrong side of the ocean” please don’t.

You don’t know how tough it can really get.

To the government, please “walk and chew gum at the same time” , please at least continue processing residency visas started before Coronavirus was a thing.

At this rate I’ll be relocating overseas when possible.

Australian Nurse.

so no travel allowed unit next year is that right

I totally understand what your talking about. My wife is stuck in Texas USA now. Maybe we should get together and discuss how we can get something worked out.

Hi there, I’m in same position. Wife and 2 kids in Indonesia, one kid is Aussie citizen. If visa applications are approved there is no guarantee a flight is available to bring them until next year. Our applications are about a week away from approval. Like you said , I hope all these people who have their family with them appreciate how lucky they are ! Best of luck.
Cheers

My partner of 26 yrs lives 200 km away
We are willingly self isolating till xmas? for everyone.s safety. It is so easy with technology and free tel calls every day.

Either one of you can travel to see the other.

Margaret, totally agree.
Nothing is keeping them in Australia from their families overseas. Planes are available both in and out. And yes, if you are not a citizen or have a visa it is an issue, but you would have known that anyway. It is Tourism that they are preferring people to do in Australia to help the economy which has lost a lot already with the bush fires now COVID. If you want to travel you just look up what is flying and pay for the tickets. Flights may be limited, but they are still letting people out or in, you just need to isolate if you are coming from overseas, just like every other Australian person who may have been working overseas and has now come home. However in the light of the number of deaths in the US Daily, I would prefer to be here than there. And I was booked for a 2-3month trip to Canada. All cancelled now, given they closed Canada’s doors to everyone except the US in mid March. And extended it another 4 weeks plus today. And I believe it will be longer. But this is more their general restrictions and lockdown. Silly them decided to let the wrong people still enter the country and things got worse. Happens when NY is so close to the Canadian boarder.

Good luck and stay safe. I am in lockdown too, given my lack of immunity system. So am at home now, to everything is clear.

I get you. I’m in same situation. Hubby is in OZ and we are abroad..Gonna be hard for the kid too

Have a look at covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au > coming to Australia > search for “I am immediate family of an Australian citizen or resident” you may be excited by the results.

But that doesnt help when the country isnt flying to australia because australia isnt accepting international flights. My wife is in Dubai, and emirates just sent my wife a cancellation of her confirmed flight back to Melbourne… when can she get back to be with me in australia?

Gday Datboi, I’m in same position and am awaiting approval for visitor visas for my wife and 2 kids to come from Indonesia, and one of them , my son, is an Australian citizen. If they get approved the government will probably say they are welcome to come but borders are closed. Hopefully not the case though

I have no problem about delaying holiday travel overseas, but what if you need to return to the US for work or study?

People need to stop being so gullible and listening to this click bait s***e, it’s nothing more than a poor word press article only fit for loo roll replacement in paper form.

Seriously??? If people do what they are supposed to we might all be able to move on with all of this. It’s people that do not listen to health authorities and do not do what they’re supposed to.

This is a news article not direct health authority information. It’s cherry picking.
Also you can’t travel even if you want to, so what’s your point?
Australia’s infection rate is low anyway so stop shaking your head like Harold from Neighbours.
We are naturally talented at staying away from each other, because we are already a bunch of territorial selfish antisocials anyway.
The only time Aussies leave their house is to shout at eachother from the comfort of their 4 door car, while they drive to work or bunnings. We never catch a bus or Subway train compared to other countries, who are all suffering.
The other time we leave is to shout at eachother at footy matches.
Let’s just keep the footy stadiums closed

Agree Mandy, there has not been any formal announcement or regulations, you are reading a news article that is based on a question asked by a journalist. It is even at the bottom by the him stating it is unlikely. Honestly again, all they are really stating is to help the tourist industry in your own country to get the economy back up and running by doing holidays in Australia instead of overseas to spend your money…..

You are right, they’re just stubborn with infact this is evetybodys health protection, if only everybody follow we should dont have this kind of situation. Everybody now is getting a risk from those people who is stubborn.

My parents are here from Canada since all this started they came in early
Feb they’re in there late 70’s
Just wondering when the international flights will open

There are flights out if they want to leave, but honestly, they are safer in Australia than travelling back to Canada right now. Just extend their visa as needed, at the Age that they should not be travelling in this current climate. Given most flights out – Air Canada is flying direct to Vancouver from Sydney and Brisbane, not Melbourne. Check dates on their website. That is the fastest route back.
But if they were my parents, I would get them to stay in the country with under 70 deaths, than to fly back to home were death count is in the higher 4 digits.

Good luck

APPLY for them stay longer here flight will be harder and harder as more service are shut down i tell them hold they could be here for next 2 years

Just watch the airlines price gouge if this happens

I should be in Hawaii this time

I should be in Hawaii for this time

I would’ve thought we should be thinking more about getting back to work than planning holidays. We’re going to have a huge debt to pay back and we need to save more, get into surplus so that when something serious strikes again we can afford it – rather than wasting billions on climate change, submarines etc etc

firstly its not my debt. i am currently on jobkeeper and being used and abused. jobkeeper comes from my PAYG. now on average i get taxed 30% + 10% on my net wage on pretty much everything that i buy. ontop of that i have to put 9.5% aside for the so called future. not to mention it was never enough to retire and its taken a hit with this crap. so 40% annually i get taxed on average i have been working for 20 years do the math. i have not gotten nothing back. 300 grand a month for six months for something that to me is a joke and it is a joke because u dont die from covid. no one dies from covid you die from a compromised immune system. no conspiracy theory not in denial. all viruses live in harmony in your body until your system is compromised or was compromised. if you cannot see they are trying to create a global financial collapse then i cannot say anything more to persuade you. this will lead to poverty for alot of people and other deaths from mental illness and suicide will rise. i bet you they wont shut the country down then. then what about the vaccine? i dont want it. i should have a choice but will i. will i be allowed to work will i be allowed to travel both equally important which takes me to my next point. that being travel. unlike some of you who claim to be Aussies that is forget what you really are i do not. i have a motherland and i wish to visit it. you may call it a holiday i call i a need to connect. 1 year plus of no travel is ridiculous. you are going to loose alot of freedoms and alot of financial independence. but hey who am i just someone who dosnt want to follow the rules

What about us essential workers who are still working, and were planning a holiday this year because we haven’t had more than 3 consecutive days off since 2014?
Not all of us are laid out on the couch while all of this is happening. We actually bothered to learn a skill and we are all still working mate. How about YOU can get back to work while some of us can go for that long overdue break before we burn out or else there won’t be anyone to look after your grandma.

I totally agree further cut down chinese migration and their take away businesses who employ their own clan and siphon money out while want to enjoy best of both worlds.They are also reluctant to learn english or adopt our ways of life too patriotic to their mother land while attacking our Government

Sounds just like what western people do when they go overseas throughout history and still today.
How about we vote a little bit better and the government will stop that from happening.

Am actually on holiday In Mauritius with our first newborn baby and my husband is in Melbourne. Want to know if I can go back to meet him in Melbourne and when can I do so please. I don’t want to wait next year to meet him.

The only reason they are judging you is because you have a high chance of being brown, you are in Mauritius. Dumb c@nts some Aussies are, hope they all die outta da coronavirus or aids.

You all haters dont know her story. Call yourselfs idiots

Idiot

Surprised how one can dare to be alone when need to take care of first baby

I am sure Brenda is not alone but visiting family. Very possible she has more family in Mauritius than in Melbourne.

My misses and 1 yo baby are in Philippines and I was to join them last month when borders closed missed her 1st Bday . I have been working with DFAT on getting them back to Melbourne which has been a battle but they are on the way back on 18/4/2020.

ANYONE STUCK AND WANT TO RETURN HOME SHOULD CALL THE CONSULATE IN COUNTRY OR BACK IN AUSTRALIA . HOME AFFAIRS

On March 25, this was the headline in The Guardian: “Time running out for Australians stranded overseas by coronavirus as airlines ground planes”… Why didn’t you act then?

Some people couldn’t return from Bali as they were renewing their visas and authorities hold their passports while it’s processed. I started mine in early March and got passport back on April 10. Many Aussies and Kiwis in the same boat. We are not all carrot crunchers leaning on a farm gate.

She was in Mauritius, not Bali…

Why are you still over there if it was just for a holiday?! You had plenty of forewarning to come back to Australia before the borders were closed! You’ve pretty much brought this on yourself, and no, you probably won’t get to see your husband until next year, and more importantly, he won’t get to see his baby until then either. Slightly selfish on your part, don’t you think?

your an asshole Andrew

Yet I got 21 thumbs up versus your 5, loser boy! By the way, just for next time, it’s “you’re an asshole”, not “your”…

? sad LDR waiting for 2 years and 3 years maybe to see each other again? Arghh ????

I understand how you feel, Kara. I’m in a long distant relationship too. Last time I saw my SO was August of 2019 and I was supposed to go see them in June but then they closed the borders and I had to cancel my flights. Looks like I will have to wait over a year before I can go back again. I pray it isn’t longer than that.

What? We’re in LDR for 2 years and if we wait til 2022 arghh too long ? ????

This will be a great opportunity to travel around Australia ??

Is NZ ok to travel by December this year?

depend my bet is no we maybe see service come as NZ and Aus are close friends first.

they are not close friends they are a colony or a commonwealth to be politically correct. same handlers thats all.

Only if Australia re-opens the borders…

How about fiji

PEOPLE if the borders open it will be only essential travel only at first .

This seems precautionary and helping to elevate objections in the Long term. Stay safe, stay active, stay home

???????

You don’t need to be aggressive exposing your ignorance and no consideration for your community

What about people who earn their income overseas?

Same here. Thats my income too

I have booked accommodation in Port Douglas in August 2020 for my extended family (5) and paid for the flights ex Melbourne. This is a much needed holiday for the working members and I hope that all domestic restrictions will be lifted before the start of August

Oh nooooo! My babies are overseas. We always go a visit them every end of the year. I guess we not going to see and give them big cuddles and kisses at the end of the year this time. This makes me sad and brakes my heart so much?? God help us all?

What about Indian students studying in Australia.They want to come back to India,as the universities are closed due to Covid-19.

You can leave if you can find a flight but you may not be able to return. Check the Australian government website.

?? How about the Tongan citizens here we want to go back to work ?

I want to see my fam this year this has to stop soon will miss a lot if not come on please pull your heads together make it happen

The incubation period of Coronavirus is said to be 7 days. Then why to quarantine a healthy person for 14 days, unless it is feared that one can be infected during quarantine?

I find it very strange that our prime minister will let the n r l to go ahead but we can’t even go to a beach
My wife is in the philippines yet I can’t even go to see her she had a visa to come here in May but not now but our prime Minster will let the football start up in May

Wow money talks than

as a Brit on a 4 year visa , my family cannot visit me , so this talk of 12 months before international travel is going down like a lead balloon….but guess what , its bulls*** as some have said, click bate propaganda by ill advised journo’s who know very little about the real world outside Australia.
Sure if it happens for that long I guarantee your country will be left well behind , what about business’s that need to travel?
Yes we can stop every road death by reducing speed limit to 5KMPH , get real politicians sooner or later we need to lock at the bigger picture.

Why don’t you just say that we won’t be able to travel for the next five years. You Have the same amount of info to back it up. Just report the facts. No make it ten and really get people annoyed. Sensational bloody tripe!!

I was due to fly to Bali last wk, but we are looking at May 2021 at the earliest at this stage. So that could be an indication .

Came victoria,aus 10th march for upto 31st march as tourist visa with my spouse from delhi,India..Now unable to return due to closure of international flights underthe order of australia & Indian Govt.Now we minima amount of money to servive for long period of months..Can assume after may2020 international flights will resume. Kindly give the tip for going my native country.
Thanks.

Best contact your embassy

?how about Seasonal Workers who works there. My husband is still in Aus and we had a baby which he never seen up to now. He tried to come back before the lockdown and was not able to board the flight?

When can we start travel I. Australia??

Do I get a refund on the unusable portion of my life passport. I go overseas as domestic is too expensive.

My mother is due to arrive back in September 2020. I’m a bit worried if she can even get flight from Frankfurt Germany.
I truly hope that she’ll be able to get home.
Can anyone tell me, what will be her chances???????

So sad which means I’m not gonna c my son n my grand daughter this yr ? bt i understand the situation..

I’m currently in my home country when can I expect to travel Australia?

Will he be able to come to South Australia, both of us have student 500 visa???,
Please reply me..

I’m studying Masters in Australia if i stay in my home country my visa is wasted and My studies are not finished within a period.

Please Open the borders for students only.

Your options.
1. Contact the university international student office to see what they suggest.
2.. Contact the Australian Embassy and inquire about options.
3. Defer your studies til next year.
4. Study online in your country and then when all is sorted continue your studies in Australia.

I am in same situation.

I’m an international student I came Srilanka for my holidays!! Can’t i travel from Srilanka to Melbourne until next year ?

My sister turns 70 yrs old in May had to defere flights going home so hoping can fly by Xmas for combined occasion.Only way to get there.

I am in the same boat. My partner is in Indonesia, and I am in Australia..so far six months since we have seen each other.

I am in same boat my partner is stuck in Indonesia haven’t seen her since January

I was suppose to leave for thailand today
Jetstar gave our money so jetstar cooked it for next year 2021
When will travel restrictions ease

I’m Australian citizen and stuck overseas and my children are in Australia. How will I go back?

What is the government doing about overseas airlines not allowing travel credits to be used after December 2020 or to refund fare costs after cancelling flights? If this is the case and we are very likely to not be able to travel until 2021, then airlines have to acknowledge it and at least allow for credits with no expiry date. This directive must come from the government authorities as not all companies will do it willingly.

We are in a similar situation to visit family for two months in Europe, flights booked Brisbane to Sydney with Qantas, Sydney to Sweden with Qatar, two weeks Christmas period hotel accomodation in Stockholm, Austrian Air internal flight to Sarajevo then back to Brisbane via Qatar. Fully paid $10k, three airlines and a hotel to deal with if we are stopped by the Government from travelling, where will we stand with this loss?

This is fear and rumour mongering at its best and people have become so dependent on their hand being held and told everything that they are refusing to use their own brain while lots of other agenda are getting manifested while this episode is running. Countries around the world like china, Austria etc. have already started opening up and domestic travel is being permitted in many countries already. What countries need to do explicitly is ban travel from and to countries that eat exotic wild animals that caused this global mayhem. If governments around the world do not have the courage to call a spade a spade and ban wet markets selling live exotic wild animals and also ban all travel to and from such countries then perhaps we should expect to stay isolated for the rest of our lives. Majority of the cases in Australia are not community transmission but travel from wet market operating countries. Sapere aude people!

I will be looking forward to my new rescheduled holiday next May , we may even go for longer.

I’m Australian and live overseas – I’m due to be getting married in October but now Looks like we’ll have to cancel the wedding and rebook as I can’t have my wedding without my family. Not sure when is safe to rebook to though as it seems so uncertain. Any advice?

I hope this virus will end soon?coz my partner should visit us here for my daughter’s 4th birthday but i think its just me and my daughter will be celebrating her birthday, christmas and new year, all our family is overseas its sad to think only me and my daughter will be celebrating her very special day and our christmas and even new year, its just sad that we dont have anyone here in australia and they cant even visit us due to the corona virus.please lord heal the people whos been sick and heal the world and put an end to this virus so we can all go back to our usual lives..thank you lord for always guiding and blessing us all.stay safe everyone and godbless?

If I currently hold an ETA and my partner who is an Australian citizen is there, can I fly out to join him?

My partner is already granted and approved her visitors visa and she need to entered before 27 August but because of COVID they declared lockdown have already ticket and rebooked twice just to change the date. I understand the National health security is the most important. My only question is her visa granted will give a exemption or extension until the travel restriction is lifted.

i have a ticket on hold and I have to use before feb next year or I will loose my money. how can I get my money back

I know a couple who just returned froma month in Bali and another couple who are flying out to Bali tomorrow? I though flights were banned?
