More and more Australian citizen and permanent residents who have recently left Australia are interested in staying overseas for more than three months in order to their chances of obtaining federal government approval.

For the first time, the new guidelines and operational instructions issued by the Director-General of the Australian Border Service (Australian Border Force) make it clear that persons who "have compelling reasons and will stay abroad for at least three months" are likely to be allowed to travel abroad.

Sydney Visa &Citizenship Lawyers lawer chief lawer burns (Adam Byrnes) said he had advised clients for a long time that "the longer you travel, the higher your chances of success ". However, he found that in the past few weeks, the Border Service had begun to demand more evidence to prove the truth.

According to Home Office data obtained by the Sydney Morning Herald under the Freedom of Information Act, the proportion of people exempted from the travel ban on personal matters (including three months or more from the country) from 23 per cent in March and April to 62 per cent in August.

Under the immigration policy aimed at curbing the new crown epidemic, Australian citizen and permanent residents have now to apply for permission from the Border Guard to leave Australia since March. At the same time, temporary residents and other visitors, even if they hold a valid visa, must be exempted before they can enter Australia.

By the beginning of this month ,40833 Australians had been allowed to travel abroad, almost half of whom were granted permission for personal matters, including three months of departure. In August alone ,11278 people were exempted for this reason, up from 675 in March and April.

The proportion of people approved for "compassionate reasons" has fallen, from two-thirds in March and April to less than a third in August. However, during the same period, the "absolute value" of permission to leave the country for "compassionate reasons" rose from 1954 to 5505.

lawer Burns noted that applications based on "compassionate grounds" faced "very high thresholds" and that denials were common. In cases where there is medical evidence of critical illness and limited life expectancy, applications are still rejected.

It is reported that the Australian Border Service has refused to approve 13311 Australian travel applications. Moreover, out of a total of 116522 applications submitted, a large number of applications were neither rejected nor approved. This is due to the fact that the same person has filed multiple applications or is already exempt from further requests for approval.

The BBS also issued guidelines and operational instructions last week to determine whether a departure approval can be approved, noting that "persons with compelling reasons and who will stay abroad for at least three months" are likely to be approved.

Previously, the public guidelines did not mention anything about extending travel time more favourably than approval. However, it was widely felt that this was the case in the Facebook (fb) cluster devoted to "bypassing" the travel ban, with advice and information shared by many netizens.

Many Internet users have been granted travel exemptions and shared with relevant Facebook groups for "moving overseas for more than three months ", as described in earlier official documents.

Permanent resident of australia in sydney, germany citizen klaus (Melanie Krauss), has been allowed to travel to stuttgart (Stuttgart) in october to look after his elderly father. Her solitary father had knee surgery, and she was a physiotherapist.

Klaus ,44, said she only wanted to leave Australia for two or three months, but later applied for four or five months because she knew it would increase her chances of approval. She hoped to return to Sydney in four months, but if she couldn't catch the return flight, she was ready to stay in Stuttgart for a year.

Klaus said she understood why the Australian government imposed a travel ban, but thought it was too much. Her reason was that there were a large proportion of Australians, whose families were overseas; and no other democracy had imposed such restrictions.
