    Yeah I figured a rental, but still finding one you like on the first day and getting it is pretty good going.

    Wow what a week! G'won share some picks of the house... We are all living vicariously here!

    Will you still come?

    On other news, we have someone who wants to buy our house, they just need to sell theirs first. Not going to get too excited at this stage.

    Which airlines?

    Qatar say they are flying 4 flights a week still. I guess you might get stuck in Doha for a bit, but there are probably worse airports to get stuck in, they should put you in a nice hotel. To be fair to the airline it must be difficult with the changing entry requirements to book flights at all, and I can believe they booked people only to find the numbers they are allowed by the AU govt are lower. Did the facebook comments resolve if they got to Au in the end?
  6. Are you sure the Visitor Visa route is closed to you? I was under the impression that spouse of Australian Citizens could qualify for an excemption.

    The next section: From 1 August 2020 all passengers arriving in Dubai from any destination, including passengers connecting in Dubai, must have a negative COVID-19 test certificate to be accepted on the flight. The test must be taken a maximum of 96 hours before departure. This excludes children under the age of 12 and passengers who have a moderate or severe disability.

    Yes - I would say though if you are flying via Dubai the emirates link ir pretty clear that this applies to all transit passenger effective 1st August, so I would assume you need the test and plan it in.

    Overall best suburbs in Adelaide to live in

    Well you say that, but Birmingham metro population is more like 2.7M depending on where you draw the boundary.

    There are moments however when it all seems like too much to start all over again. Pfff.

    The Emirates test appears to be related to Dubai transit. There isn't a nomimated lab for the UK, just says must be accredited. https://www.emirates.com/us/english/help/flying-to-and-from-dubai/tourists-travelling-to-dubai/

    I wouldn't bet on it. I am sure they will confrim. Qantas have a health declaration on their website for all travellers by the looks of it; Perhaps if this is completed it tells you what to do. https://www.qantas.com/gb/en/travel-info/travel-updates/coronavirus/health-screen-form.html

    Tasmania also has the G2G pass per the website, but the wording isn't quite so firm.
