Australia Increases Covid Bans! Country Citizens Living Abroad Could Be Stranded!
Australia's sudden tightening of the rules it applies at its borders due to the Covid epidemic and the threat of the Delta variant has left Australian citizens living abroad, returning or wanting to return to their country for vacation or any other purpose, in a difficult situation.
Australia's sudden tightening of the rules it applies at its borders due to the Covid epidemic and the threat of the Delta variant has put Australian citizens living abroad in a difficult situation who have returned or want to return to their country for vacation or any other purpose. They will have to apply for an exemption from the rules to leave the country. There are criticisms that the new measures will discourage Australians living in other countries from visiting their country and that families will suffer greatly. Since March last year, Australia has banned its citizens from leaving the country as part of its strategy to combat the Covid epidemic.
Australian citizens living in other countries were exempt from this ban. Measures are being increased due to the delta variant and foreigners are prohibited from entering the country except in cases requiring exemptions. Last month, too, in response to the threat posed by the more easily transmitted Delta variant, Australia halved the quota of passengers allowed into the country.
Many Australians have reacted angrily to the recent bans, which some have described as "barbaric." Many criticized the effect it had on its citizens. Lawyers question whether Australia is violating the Constitution with this decision by effectively preventing its citizens from returning to their home countries.
The goal is to get at least 80 percent of the population vaccinated Sydney is living under lockdown measures due to the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus in the cities of Melbourne and Brisbane. The number of new cases in one day in the state of New South Wales on Friday totaled 291. This was the highest number of cases seen in this region since the beginning of the epidemic. Australia, which has taken very strict measures together with New Zealand since the beginning of the pandemic, can be considered one of the countries that survived the epidemic the least. As of August 6, the total number of coronavirus cases in the country is 35 thousand 698. The number of people who died as a result of Covid-19 disease is 933.
