COVID-19: Travel Concessions for Family and Partner Visa Applicants Stuck in Australia




With the borders closed due to COVID-19, the government has allocated travel concessions for some applicants who can’t travel back home to have their visas granted and are currently stuck in Australia.



What are these concessions and what do they mean for you?


If you have lodged one of the offshore visas mentioned in the list below and are currently in Australia - you do not need to leave Australia for your visa to be granted!



From 27 February 2021, applicants of the following visas will be eligible for the travel concession:

  1. Child (subclass 101) visa

  2. Adoption (subclass 102) visa

  3. Dependent Child (subclass 445) visa

  4. Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa

  5. Partner (subclass 309) visa


From 24 March 2021, applicants of the following visas will be eligible for the travel concession:

  1. Parent (subclass 103) visa

  2. Contributory Parent (subclass 173) visa

  3. Contributory Parent (subclass 143) visa


This is amazing news for those with family members or a partner here on one of the above eligible visas! These travel concessions have come in at a great time, providing some much-needed relief to the current delays in processing times of offshore partner visa applications.


With the situation ever changing, the government is likely to introduce more changes, watch our space for more updates!
