Disclaimer: Since July 6, the Australia Health Declaration is no longer needed.

Given the current health crisis caused by COVID-19, many Australian residents were stranded in foreign countries while they were enjoying their vacations or having a business trip. The lockdown that has been imposed by multiple countries caught them unexpectedly, forcing them to find a way to travel back home in these hard circumstances. As a measure to repatriate their citizens, the Australian Department of Home Affairs has released the Australia COVID-19 Travel Request Form.

This document will allow stranded residents to return to Australia as long as they present evidence of residency documentation. A simple driver's license or proof that you work or study in Australia is enough to validate your residency. Bear in mind that holders of a Provisional (Temporary) Visa do not count as Australian residents. In order to facilitate things for you, here at iVisa.com we are processing this document. You can apply online here.
