My parents are booked to visit from the UK in early January. I applied for their exemption on 10th November, it was approved 10 days later.Also in relation to international flights apparently the exemption rubber stamping staff are completely overloaded, so people are not getting their exemptions in time, having to cancel and rebook flights at last minute…..
Anyone not managed to get an exemption?
It appears so, according to the amendment to the NSW Order made yesterday. see sub-para 20G(b)(i).I would assume that a same day transit from SYD-MEL is OK?
That'd be the first time that our states have actually paid attention to what they signed up to at Federation if that was the case.However, on my reading of it a same day transit by air intrastate is not acceptable. The lady from NSW Health also said this was the case. I am wondering if the exception for interstate transits exists because of constitutionality concerns.
When do they arrive ?We applied for an exemption for my parents, exemption and visa approved within 7 days (we applied around 3 weeks ago).
I am just crossing my fingers that there are no changes. My parents are ok with the 72 hr self isolation and testing, and I really just want to see them after 2 years. I would assume that a same day transit from SYD-MEL is OK?

The trouble with lack of lateral thinking by governments. If they want to manage the risk of transmission via air travel, all they have to do is organise for Rex to take all the transit pax …..When do they arrive ?
Reports this morning on Facebook that a flight from SIN-MEL passengers expecting to transit to SYD were instead put into hotel quarantine on arrival in MEL.
These are not travellers from Southern Africa.
So I don’t think they are allowing any interstate transit at the minute.
I presume those unable to provide a NSW address could find themselves in hotel quarantine. Random checks could identify if people are not quarantining how they are supposed to.and how they control it? what actually stops you from going from going straight from Int to domestic terminal and board flight to BNE?
Bit of a shambles in SYD last night. No addresses were being asked for, apart from on the border declaration, on which I put my Qld home address. I'm hoping to be back there before christmas.and how they control it? what actually stops you from going from going straight from Int to domestic terminal and board flight to BNE?
The day they arrive is day 1.for those who are now self-isolating - does isolation Day 1 starts from when you arrive?
thanks again for all responses, this group is so valuable! so far my parents have not received any reschedule or cancelation of their domestic VA leg but we assume it's just a matter of time for it to happen.
