Exemption to Travel from Australia

Recommended Posts

Hey Tess D....hoping all went well and your OH made it back to the UK. Can I ask were you able to get a insurance policy for the one way trip?? if so who with?! really struggling to find a company offering any cover. We are residents but also re-emigrating home. Our container has already arrived ! Our flights were cancelled 3 days previous (March 18th) to leaving.

Any heads up of companies would be so helpful...looking to fly on July 28th, with the exemption in place. 

 

Cheers

I used Budget when I returned a couple of years ago, one way. They also insured my 78yo parent quite reasonably.  I had the insurance last a couple of weeks so it covered the excess on the hire car if it was damaged.

Thanks to all for any advise, however all the usual options are currently not offering cover due to the Corona situation.... hoping that there has to be at least one company offering cover. Especially as AU are allowing flights out, who are people insuring with???!

Australia is offering very limited flights out, the only people allowed to leave the country are people who can show they are permanently resident overseas, and a few other limited exceptions (compassionate grounds, essential services).

Have you tried True Traveller ? they do have a disclaimer saying no claims in relation to COVID but i cant see anywhere it says no policys due to COVID. Maybe worth a try.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Hi Cal 

Thank you.  True traveller is only for those of uk residency and EU. We are Australian residents currently all UK insurance companies will not insure us we need Australian insurance or something neutral but don't know if that even exists...

 

Thanks anyway

Plus from what I can gather from gov website if your ordinarily resident of another country you don't need to request an exemption... if you are resident of AU then you do under a particular situation, and must prove it with supporting documents, such as moving permanently overseas and having a receipt of your shipping of all your belongings such as our situation..

Sadly, I'm a DUAL citizen (British & Australian) - my parents made me an "Australian" when I was too young to make up my own mind and too young to sign the citizenship document. Anyway, my old Australian passport has expired, but I have a current British passport and want to PERMANENTLY return to my homeland in England asap NEVER to return to convict Australia. I find it hard to believe that the fact that a person is a DUAL having an Australian citizenship some how CANCELS the rights of a British citizen with a British passport to PERMANENTLY return to the land of their birth. I have a British mobile number, but no Australian mobile number. I also have a National Insurance Number which allows me to be taxed correctly in the UK as a paid worker and also allows me to vote, but I'm not on the Electoral Roll in Australia. I also have a HSBC British bank account in Guildford, Surrey where I previously lived. Should I write to Peter Dutton or should I just apply for a stupid extension - any thoughts??

If you feel that strongly about it, you can always renounce your Australian citizenship.
