Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade advises all Australians overseas to return to Australia
17 March 2020,
Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne has advised that Australians who are overseas and want to come home should do so as soon as possible.
As more countries close their borders or introduce travel restrictions, overseas travel is becoming more complex and difficult.
Commercial options are also likely to become less available with most airlines cutting or suspending international routes.
Qantas Group (ASX: QAN) announced earlier today that international capacity will be cut by around 90 per cent until the end of May 2020.
Virgin Atlantic has taken similar measures to manage its experience with Covid-19 and will reduce its schedule by around 80 per cent by 26 March.
