Hi all,

I am wondering if you anyone could share their experiences about returning to Australia under the current CV19 restrictions.

I have a flight booked for mid November, but wondering how the entry quotas work.

Any information will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Which country are you returning from? Which city are you flying into? Which airline are you flying?

Qatar is unashamedly cancelling Economy tickets and prioritising customers in Business. If you're not in Business class, expect your ticket to be cancelled and be very pleasantly surprised if it isn't. Cancellations often happen within 24-48 hours of the flight.

Of course, things could change a lot before November and (hopefully) the entry quotas will be relaxed (currently each flight into Sydney is limited to, I think, 50 passengers). Obviously if that limit is increased and/or scrapped before November, your chances will improve.

My sister flew in on Qatar last month, in Business class. She was quarantined in The Intercontinental, in a large 5-star room with panoramic Harbour views. However there's also a chance you'll get quarantined in a dingy 3-star shoebox with no window. It's the luck of the draw and you won't know which hotel you're in until literally the bus pulls up out the front.

Having said all that, anything could change before you arrive in November!

Thanks for the information.

It looks grim.
