I am a partner of an Australian Citizen (Permanent Resident). Can I travel to Australia during the COVID-19 Travel Ban?
Yes, you can if you hold a current Partner visa (subclasses 100, 309, 801 and 820). You do not need to apply for an exemption to travel/ enter Australia during the travel bans.
However, if you do hold any of the Partner visas (subclasses 100, 309, 801 and 820), you may still be allowed to travel to/enter Australia if you have been granted an entry exemption by the Department of Home Affairs (‘the Department’).
To apply for an exemption from the Department, you will need to provide evidence of your de facto relationship with your partner. Please note that this exemption will only be granted on a case by case basis and is dependent on the strength of your evidence of your de facto relationship with your partner. Such evidence can be found here.
Please note that this exemption is only granted on a case by case basis. You still may not be successful but it is worth a try.
