COVID 19 and migration matter

The migration activity in Australia has been heavily affected by the global pandemic COVID-19.

It has also been reported that there are thousands of unsuccessful travel exemption applications during this period of COVID-19. This has resulted to frustrations and disappointments of Australian citizens and permanents residents as they cannot reunite with their family members.

Furthermore, there are temporary resident visa holders in Australia that cannot return to their home country due to different travel restrictions around the world caused by COVID-19. As a result, most non-residents are unsure of what to do next to remain lawfully in Australia.

Moreover, there are different critical sectors in Australia that have been financially affected by COVID-19. As a result, the Australian government allows non-residents to temporarily work full-time in these critical sectors during this pandemic.

Regardless of how COVID-19 affected your migration activity in Australia, our team in Sunshine Migration Group can assist you.
