Australia Extends Outbound Travel Ban Until Mid-December

The Australian Government has quietly extended its ban on its citizens leaving the country. The controversial edict got put in place in March. This week, it got extended until December 17. It’s bad news for airlines and even worse news for Australians who need to travel.

While many countries are restricting who comes in during 2020, Australia has closed both the exit and entry doors. Simple Flying has reported extensively on the difficulties Australians face getting home after strict quotas got put on the number of people (including Australian citizens) allowed to enter the country. What’s less well known is the ban on Australians leaving their own country.
