If you find yourself stranded in India, unable to make your way back home to Victoria, then the information provided below is invaluable.
Read it carefully and reach out directly to us with any questions you have.
Are you hoping to find a way back home from India (anywhere in the country) to Victoria in the month of August? Or know someone who finds themselves in this situation?
It is critical to look at the various options out there – hint: there are two options of which only one option is viable for the month of August.
Flight Options in August
Option 1: You can try and book through the Australian Government’s initiative through Qantas, but they are fully sold out for the month.
Option 2: The only viable option is to book through Gaura Travel’s flights in August (full dates provided below). We still have seats available, but you need to book them as soon as possible.
The Rules – International Transit through Sydney to Victoria
The Government has provided clear instructions on how passengers will be safely allowed to transit through Sydney on to Victoria.
International travellers from India are required to undergo mandatory quarantine in Sydney, following which, they are required to immediately travel by car (or a cab) to the airport and take a flight to Melbourne.
They are not allowed a detour or a stopover anywhere in Sydney.
The key difference to note here is that ‘Hotel Quarantine in Sydney’ is considered a GREEN ZONE, as opposed to anywhere else in Sydney which continues to be a red zone.
We can also confirm from passenger reports, that the quarantine experience is the same in Sydney as you would expect in Melbourne.
Passengers will enter and exit GREEN ZONES as designated by the government without having to access any RED ZONE areas. Which means, travellers do not have to contend with the current situation in Sydney, if Melbourne is their final destination.
No Extra Cost to Travellers
As a show of our undying commitment to the community and our ambition to keep families together during these times, we will cover your costs to travel from Sydney to Melbourne. At this stage, we can confirm this initiative for the month of August, so please avail this while you can.
Direct Flights Options to Melbourne are Sold Out
After having spent months, and many over a year, stranded in India, we encourage travellers to think outside the box and avail solutions that are perfectly within the rules.
For the month of August, all flights directly to Melbourne are fully sold out. So please book your flights to Sydney and make your way to Melbourne, as explained above.
