Anyone travel to Australia with Visa Subclass 143 recently?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Has anyone recently arrived in Australia with Visa Subclass 143?  

Would like to know if any other document is required other than the declararion online plus all Covid related test (such as PCR)
Do I need any other documents?

I am planning to go to Australia in September.

Why do you need an extension to your visa if it was granted less than a year ago? If you mean the initial entry date … no need to panic: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/departmental-forms/online-forms/travel-facilitation-letter-request-form

Check individual state requirements… some require additional paperwork.

Hi LBee,

 

I have heard about that as well, I have got the flight from Singapore with Singapore Airline (Purchased 2 months ago).  Yesterday the airline did send the confirmation that the flight will happen (I try to arrive before the first entry date 15 Oct), but it is still nearly 4 weeks to go.... so like you said...nothing is guarantee until I'm really on the flight. Do they let you know well in advance about the flight? or just 2-3 days in advance?

 

Thanks.

We have been given 4 weeks notice, but booked flight 7 months ago, still trying to get a flight before 1st entry date, but not holding my breath for this to happen.  Have applied for an extension for visa and hoping we get.

@LBee I believe in UK you have "repatriation flight" as well right?  It is very hard to book as seat is very limited but may be another channel to try with DFAT code. But the flight is going to Darwin first so may need to quarantine there and domestic flight to Sydney or so after quarantine.  (I see a lot of people talking about this flight on the forum) Hope flight come up for you as well.
