How do COVID 19 restrictions affect your travel plans?

The school holidays are approaching…restrictions on movement are being lifted…how does this affect your travel plans?

Generally speaking, non-essential travel outside of Australia is forbidden for Australian citizens and permanent residents.

Other French nationals with temporary visas [work/ student/ tourist/ WFV] can leave the country at any point in time (insofar as flights are still available). However, the right to return to Australia is not automatically guaranteed, even in cases of reuniting with family! You will therefore have to think carefully before going on vacation abroad or sending your child to visit their grandparents in France…

The Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs has compiled responses to frequently asked questions regarding travel which we invite you to consult, as well as the general advice for travellers.
