Travel Restriction Exemption Portal

Travel Restriction Exemption Portal

Use this Portal if you are subject to the current COVID-19 travel restrictions and wish to travel to ​or out of Australia because you:

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

2. are a New Zealand citizen who is usually resident in Australia

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

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

All requests should be submitted at least 4 weeks, but not more than 3 months, prior to travel. Requests to travel outside of 3 months will not be considered, and those within 4 weeks may not be processed in time for planned travel dates. Check the website regularly as travel restrictions are subject to change.

    How long will it take for the application to respond with an exempt? Does the applicant require more information to upload in the application?

    Once the application has been lodged , I do not think anything can be added to it.

    It varies from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. You may receive a request to provide further information or documentation.

    I can’t answer such specific questions here, especially with the rules constantly changing. Contact Bordfer Force directly or check their website:
