All overseas travel from Australia is currently banned, with few exceptions.
If you’re overseas and want to return, we continue to urge you to do so as soon as possible while flights are available. If you can't leave or prefer to stay where you are, make plans for an extended stay.
If you wish to return to Australia, and there are still commercial flights available, take them as soon as possible.
A number of key transit airports are now open. However, travel regulations are changing at short notice. If you’ve decided to return to Australia:
In some cases, you may need to make arrangements to stay where you are for a longer period, until your departure can be arranged or border closures are lifted.
In some cases, particularly if you’re living and working overseas long-term, you may have the support, accommodation and income you need to remain where you are through this period.
If, for whatever reason, you’re staying somewhere longer than you planned:
Queensland Travel Restrictions
All travellers to Queensland including returning residents and workers should practise social distancing and risk mitigation measures such as remaining 1.5 metres away from other persons, regular washing of hands, and limiting travel outside of the home or place of accommodation and work except for permitted purposes.

As most of the world is preparing to close boarders to slow down the spread of COVID-19, the Australian Priminister, Scott Morrison, has announced this morning that all Australians should not travel overseas at this time. This is our highest advice level (level 4 of 4). Further to that, if you are already overseas and wish to return to Australia, it is recommended you do so as soon as possible by commercial means.
As most countries prepare to close or have already closed their boarders overseas travel is becoming more complex and difficult. You may not be able to return to Australia when you had planned to, taking into consideration if you have access to health care and support if you get sick while overseas. If you do decide to return to Australia, please do so as soon as possible.
We are doing our upmost to keep you all up to date, as new information comes in we will update this page, so please check back regularly.

We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, Tammy, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend Tammy and the team at Redcliffe Travel.
We have just returned from our second holiday organised and booked through Tammy. It's so comforting to deal with such a professional and caring staff member. Thanks heaps Tammy outstanding service once again
The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent Tammy Aitchison, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.
We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.
As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!
The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.
I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
