Hey guys.

Me and my wife have received a PR recently under 189. We have decided to move to Melbourne but we have lot of queries in our mind which are bothering us due to the travel restrictions as a result of COVID-19 scare around the world. We are planning to land in June, 2020 first week. However, I have not booked the tickets yet. I have following doubts:
1) Should I wait before booking the tickets for some more time to assess the local situation in Australia and around the World? ( especially, the transit points to Australia)
2) Is there going to be a scarcity of odd jobs due to lock down of certain businesses like cafes, restaurants etc. in Australia. Since they will provide us an income during our initial days in Australia.
3) Will there be significant effect on the hardcore industries making it difficult to find suitable jobs in our career profiles?
4) We are in a fix and any advice from those who are already in Australia (especially Melbourne) or traveled to Australia recently would be helpful.
@MysticRiver @Dileep @mohsinciddiki @PK-Adelaide or anyone who can advice on the above points.

Yes to all of the above so better to wait for a few months, if you are having an issue of IED, you can request to extend it based on Covid-19

I agree with @mohsinciddiki .. if it doesn't cause a lot of issues to postpone your move, better to wait until the situation improves.

Consider before posting:

  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
