COVID-19 (Novel coronavirus) request to travel form

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Use this form to contact the Department if you have been affected  by the current COVID-19 travel restrictions and wish to travel to ​or out of Australia because you:

  • are an immediate family member of an Australian citizen or permanent resident (being spouses, de facto partners, dependent children and legal guardians)
  • have a compelling or compassionate reason to travel to Australia urgently​
  • believe you meet a departure travel restriction exemption​​.

Only complete this form if you are planning to travel within the next 3 months. Requests to travel outside of 3 months will not be considered. Check the website regularly as travel restrictions are subject to change. 

For all other enquiries, please visit the COVID-19 (Novel coronavirus) and the Australian border page.​
