I have been trying to find the name of an agency, or person, or anywhere that get Government approval for these non-hotel quarantine stays for Lachlan Murdoch, Mark Wahlberg, Lord Sugar etc.

All I can find is that it is about $100,000 in costs for police...but not who you contact to organise or begin applying for the exemption?

Centurion Amex travel did not know! so who does?

Mister I’m sure it is one of those things that if you need to ask you’re not eligible. Their people will talk to government people and come up with an arrangement and a hefty transfer of money. The movie stars will have it negotiated as part of their business visas and the production companies would pay. Note their are a few celebrities (mainly writers) who do the hotel or Howard springs way. Kathy Lette had a funny piece from quarantine as did her celebrity lawyer husband a few weeks before. Note channel 7 had their so called celebrities in a hotel from where they could whinge and get a quick fliback.

A quick Google search revealed the following result, an article in the SMH on 21st March:

There are several agencies helping broker alternative quarantine or manage various aspects, including Concierge Doctors and 3rd Rock Ent, a sister company to McCormicks Law.

I agree with patrickk that if you need to ask you don't qualify.

It's not about what you can afford or what you buy or own. It's about knowing people and connections and arrangements which can satisfy certain aspects of the official rules.

Ironically certain famous people particularly politicians have to be careful about how they make use of these access to privileges and hence premiers and federal/prime ministers would have to make sure they are staying at a gazetted/designated place of quarantine (residence) for security purposes of course.

Don't get upset about this since there is as old as time itself and “western” democracies always love to point to these practices in other countries as “special relationship” when it suits them or corruption when it doesn't. It's just that these countries don't try too hard to hide what is really happening everywhere, even iin OZ

George Orwell's Animal Farm is often touted as a criticism of socialism and communism but can easily be applicable to many other countries today particularly in the US.

After all, some are always more equal than others
