Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Travel Exemption to Australia COVID-19 Pandemic

Travel Exemption to Australia COVID-19 Pandemic

Travel Exemption to Australia for Critical Skill Individual? Congratulations! You can travel to Australia now

During this COVID-19 pandemic, Australia restricted its regulation on people entering their borders. Since March 2020, Australian borders have been strictly closed. There have been very limited numbers of flights to and from Australia. These strict border measures are applied to protect the Australian community’s health.

Many Australian citizens and permanent residents stranded overseas were unable to return until exemptions were made on 20 March 2020, that Australian Citizens, Australian permanent residents, New Zealand citizens usually resident in Australia, and their immediate family members can travel to Australia.

If you do not fall under these categories and you are planning to enter Australia to visit, study, or work, you are not exempted.

Well, now there are still some hopes to enter Australia during COVID-19 Pandemic!

On the 8th August 2020, Australian Border Force issued a new regulation regarding travel exemption. Foreigners having critical skills needed in Australia may be exempted to travel despite the closure of the borders. These travel exemptions that may apply to an individual, are:

  • Travelling at the invitation of the Australian Government or a state or territory government authority to assist in the COVID-19 response;
  • Providing critical or specialist medical services, including air ambulance, medical evacuations and delivering critical medical supplies;
  • With critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services (such as in medical technology, critical infrastructure, telecommunications, engineering and mining, supply chain logistics, agricultural technology, food production, and the maritime industry);
  • Delivering services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery (such as financial technology, large scale manufacturing, film and television production and emerging technology), where no Australian worker is available;
  • Whose entry would otherwise be in Australia’s national interest, supported by the Australian Government or a state or territory government authority.

These travel exemptions are in place to support the Australian economy and to meet the needs of these sectors that are lacking in skills which are critical during these unprecedented times. 

This is good news for some people.

So, how do I apply for the travel exemption for critical skills during COVID-19?

If you meet one of these criteria, you may apply for an exemption through online submission. You will be required to provide some documents and evidence supporting your claim and will be validated. Your application will be finalised around 24 – 48 hours. This processing time may also take longer depending on each individual’s case and circumstances. 

Another thing that you should take note of is when you are applying for these exemptions, you must apply not less than two weeks but no more than three months before travelling. Your application may be prioritised if there is a case of death or critical illness among your family members living in Australia.
