Hi Ronin, travel exemptions have no set expiry date - DHA simply asks people not to apply for an exemption more than three months prior to their planned travel date, but when the exemption is granted, the email normally states that the departure date can be changed without requiring a new exemption.

(A new or revised exemption would only be needed if the traveller needed to depart from a different international port, as the exemption is given for one specific airport or port.)

Pure speculation at this stage, as there is no end date, but Minister Simon Birmingham last month indicated it could be late next year before borders reopen fully. Hopefully sooner but not guaranteed.
