    Australian state border restrictions

    That argument would be valid for a family of hermits, but unless they are doona-dwellers the family would be circulating in the community also with the risk each day of bringing the virus home.

    Covid Travel Insurance?

    Hi all, I’m on my second post COVID trip overseas and have had to research this a lot, as getting my own cover was a contract requirement. It’s also covered a lot in the FB forum I subscribe to on getting travel ban exemptions. I’ve also spent a lot of my working days in do not travel countries...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    They were only enforcing the destination and transit points when I travelled, which was March this year, before vaccination certification was a thing. They called up the night before to consirm I had an exemption to fly, but I guess you are looking to fly after skies open. Their website has a...

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    +1 The policy I got a week ago for current travel (heymondo) ignores the travel ban and covers you for COVID provided I am double vaxxed AND I follow the Govt health requireements for the country. Cheers skip

    Australian state border restrictions

    This would avoid the Qld nonsense that if you make a one day trip to Syd it seems your 72 hour window starts before you leave Qld. Hopefully some clarity on this one soon All other things being equal, risk of getting it on any particular day is constant, so the risk progressively increases with...

    Qantas Red Planet

    Double bunger Project Pudding, quick 50 points about precincts in Brisbane and a development I've never heard of Project Switchism, slow 100 points and yet another of those that assume everyone gets work by applying for jobs online. Cheers skip

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    You are 100% on the money @Happy Dude. There is too much angst in navigating all the requirements, the incompatibilities, and the constant threat of change, it takes all the fun out of travel. Done it for work, not doing it for fun for a while. cheers skip

    It's hard to get hamsters to get off their wheels. Not intended politically, but about embedded behaviour.

    Australian state border restrictions

    These Qld rules look more and more absurd the more I look at them. I am in the habit of doing one day visits BNE to SYD as would many a road warrior. The only guidance is the web page with the pretty PDF download. The web page just says COVID test 72 hours before arrival back, but not where, so...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    On CX J last week they served the drink and nut thing, then after a lengthy wait everything else on one tray. The worst of both worlds. LH were everything on one tray too. In both cases I ate the hot main first then the cold appetiser. cheers skip

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    That would explain why a lot of countries require either a certificate of vaccination OR a certificate of recovery as proof of immunity. cheers skip

    Australian state border restrictions

    There is a distinct possibility of WA and Qld never getting to 90%, leaving any plans dependent on that milestone looking pretty silly.

    Queensland's border restrictions direction is currently No. 49. Multiply that by several states. Cheers skip

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    It was unable to read the chip in my passport, a 72 pager full of visas, even when I placed the phone on top of the chip page. It has misrecorded a zero in the passport number as O. It was unable to find an SQ flight I had, possibly because it was on an LH ticket, possibly because of the...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Yes, vaccination status wasn't a thing generally back in March. Always a potential but post COVID travel this has entered a different realm. Every country and every transit point has its own requirements. Last trip just last week my doco was Ok for entry at destination and each transit but...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    The ATD has been around for a long time, I completed one in March and it was one of the things I needed to show at checkin. It was effectively a registration that I certified that got the Federal govt forewarning of my arrival. It didn’t involve the Commonwealth certifying anything but I think...
