A flight from the UK to Australia is the cost of a university degree.
so the only way to deal with this:
- hope nothing blows up by the rest of the year
- save money and work
- hope there is some decency left that they can do home quarantine (ex vaccinated people) and lift flight caps (rn, empty planes are flying over)
- try to move on for now because little I can do
Australia is so set on maintaining the status quo that it is largely major sporting events, someone's death or celebrities go on the news about the latest scandal, otherwise nobody cares that it has been 500 days and counting since they enacted the border policy
Australia, "best in class for pandemic response" think it's only "disagreeable" that someone doesn't get a once in a lifetime opportunity to support their parent during cancer treatment
Australia starting to drop their #zerocovid bullshit https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/the-end-of-australia-s-zero-covid-strategy-came-slowly-then-all-at-once-20210701-p5862p.html
This time coming from the PM and state Premiers.
Zero COVID has always been a farce.
Australia attempted flight caps leading to $10,000+ flights now, $2500+ quarantine fees, has stopped grieving families from seeing their own (even with low or 0 cases) and now they realize they better live with it.

I am wondering if this is normal for GPs here. Like "yeah your X condition doesn't exist unless we diagnose you here".
I think it was because I wrote "receipts" when I actually meant a signed doctor letters too. 🤷♀️
Now, I'm not sure if I should bother showing up to the German GP, but since the vax appointment is going to take place after the prioritization is lifted then it means that they won't check.
I'm meant to be in priority group 3 for vaccinations, but I never got the invite letter.
When I went to a German GP for the first time, I declared an "existing condition". I thought that they'd actually consider that but didn't. When I emailed them, the German GP wanted to do diagnosis even though I've had a whole life history.
I went and booked my vax appointment even though I am not technically eligible at the time and today got a signed letter from my Oz GP which I'm gonna use 🤷♀️
Australia - the only country that's going to stop me from seeing my healthy vaccinated parents.
Let's stop lauding them for their Covid19 approach
The Australian PM is pretty much the worst there is, all the way since 2019 when he sat on his hands during one of the worst bushfire seasons, for example...
Well, on top of Australia charging me $2000+ in quarantine (mandatory) and several thousands more for flights (due to flight caps) they will also want me to become a tax resident if I were to stay there for more than 45 days.
Australia can go f* itself and anyone here in Europe like Germany who looks into that country as a great #zerocovid example can go f themselves to an insane asylum.
> I went to work as usual in the Intensive Care Unit and looked after a woman who was dying. I met with her children who told me that the woman’s partner lived overseas; that they had been together several years after meeting on a church mission trip. He had applied for exemptions to travel to Australia several times, but was rejected every time as there was no “compassionate reason”.
ZeroCOVID approach in Australia basically means dehumanizing their own citizens
