NEW Travel Restriction Exemption Portal

The Department of Home Affairs has released a new Portal for people who meet the following criteria and want to travel into or out of Australia during the current COVID-19 travel restrictions:

  • are an immediate family member of an Australian citizen or permanent resident (being spouses, de facto partners, dependent children and legal guardians)

  • are a New Zealand citizen who is usually resident in Australia

  • have a compelling or compassionate reason to travel to Australia urgently​, including critical skills and medical emergencies

  • believe you meet a departure travel restriction exemption​​.

Please note that requests should be submitted at least 4 weeks, but not more than 3 months, prior to travel. It is best to check the Department of Home Affairs website regularly as the travel restrictions may change at any time.
