Australian Travel Exemption Ban Statistics to March 2021.

Inward Travel Ban Statistics.

Between 13 September 2020 and 24 March 2021, there were 139,368 individuals who sought a travel exemption to come to Australia.

23,068 inward travel ban exemptions were approved during that period.

Those figures show that one in every six applicants were granted an exemption to enter Australia.

In practice however, many of these applicants made multiple requests. I have read that at least one such applicant made 15 requests before getting a grant.
