It’s a absolute joke , how can they use the excuse that they need to limit how many Australians enter so as not to overload the quarantine system , then in the same breath announce that foreign students to resume entering Australia in September.

It's farked my wife and daughter have Indonesian passports (so can enter Indonesia no issues) but looking at that can't even get an exemption to leave Australia. (as Australian residents)

Hi Bigredcouch. I guess it just is what it is and what will be will be. The sun will come up and life will go on.
You never know what bad luck your bad luck has saved you from.
Stay strong

God the idea of missing another Indo season, and potentially facing another full winter on the Apple Isle, is way too much to take in.

Yep it's tough plenty of my mates have lost their jobs simply because of the red tape to return to work 90days is the average processing time for Russia you need to apply to Aussie govt to leave but first you need official confirmation from the government here that they will let you in that has to be attached to the application to leave Aussie translation and original then you need a covid negative test result translated into Russian no older than 72hrs just to be able to board the flight if you can get one and if the borders are open this virus suxs has caused so much pain and I haven't even contracted it I feel sorry for everyone who has lost loved ones and their livelihood because of this shit

And to make things worse, outside of Bali most areas of Indonesia have the lowest crowds in 20+ years.

Dandan - a trip to NSW would have served you very well (should’ve been here yesterday, I know).......Maybe something to consider next year?

What's your latest take ID? Might have to seriously start looking for some loopholes to jump through for next season.

PS. September looks like it's going to be off the charts over there

But for us Aussie's (or even Aussie residents) the problem is the Australian end, getting let out and let back in.
