I heard it on the news

Australian borders are to close at 9pm tomorrow night, that's Friday 20th our time, only Australians coming home will be allowed in and I think there will be no flights out. I didn't hear anything about visitors to Australia being allowed to go home but I expect they will.

  1. I am not even certain that Australians will be able to get home - it assumes that they will find a flight willing and able to take them.
    Similarly visitors to Australia may struggle to find a flight home - where ever home is.

  6. I wish our government would have taken this seriously before the virus had already entered the country. But, don't get me started about the buffoon in the big white house.

    1. Kathy's Klothesline; I wish all governments had taken it more seriously sooner, particularly with the panic buying at supermarkets. That should have been cracked down on much sooner.

  7. If visitors here can get flights. No matter what country you live in, you will want to be home.

    1. Joanne; me too, I haven't left Australia since arriving as a baby in 1953. My youngest booked a flight to Bali, paid for the ticket, for a 60th birthday party before all this happened, now he's hoping to get his money back

    1. messymimi; there are people on cruise ships in limbo as no port will allow them to dock, may are elderly and fast running out of their medications. I hope a helicopter medications drop can be done for them at least.
