AUSTRALIAN TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS - UPDATE
20 Mar 2020
From 9pm AEDT 20th March 2020, only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia.
These new restrictions will have an effect on those wishing to travel to Australia on a temporary or provisional visa. At this stage, without further clarification from the Australian Government, we expect that this includes the 489, 491, 188 and 309 provisional visas. We have made representation to the Migration Institute of Australia to establish the situtaion regarding provisional visa holders and will update you as soon we have clarity. In the meantime, you can stay informed by checking the Department of Home Affairs website.
We believe the travel restrictions to be a temporary measure in response to the Covid-19 outbreak and we would like to reassure you that we are working hard in the background on our client's visas so that once normal movement has resumed our clients will be able to make their dream move down under.
