Automatically Exempt Persons

Australian Citizens, Permanent Residents and their immediate families are just some of the people who do not require a travel exemption to enter Australia.

Department of Home Affairs website.

There are additional proof requirements for temporary visa holders and those who don't yet hold a valid visa. You must submit evidence to the Department before beginning your travel to Australia.

Family at a Beach

I need to reside in Australia but I'm not a citizen

If your spouse or immedaite family are in Australia on a temporary work visa or think you may have another valid reason to travel to Australia now you may be eligible for an exemption to Australian border restrictions.

Who won't receive an exemption?

Most students, those looking to holiday or visit Australia, some workers in non-critical industries, and those without strong compelling or compassionate reasons are extremely unlikely to receive an Australian travel exemption.

It's best to confirm your eligibility with a travel exemption expert such as

Students

I am enrolled in an Australian education institution

If you hold a student visa (subclass 500 or subclass 485) it's extremely difficult to obtain a travel exemption.

 

 

There are some exceptions, particularly for those studying in a medical field, but it's best to check with the Department of Home Affairs.

Visitors (Leisure)

I want to visit my family or friends in Australia

Visitors to Australia without strong compassionate or compelling reasons (such as death or extreme illness) are extremely unlikely to receive a travel exemption.

There is no definitive date for the Australian borders to reopen at this stage, but it looks to be in the latter half of 2022.
