long story short, I want to go live in the UK. it's for 'compassionate reasons' but there's no real tangible tie – we obviously aren't married, have never lived together, etc.

I've read some pretty harsh stories about exiting Australia: a guy on ozbargain had a Korean partner, a child born there, and he'd put down money on a deposit for a home, and he had a job lined up there. he only got the go-ahead a couple of hours before heading to the airport. if they're being that harsh on someone with documented connections and a clear pathway to not coming back in the next 18 months, what hope does anyone else have?

I don't really know what to do. there's talk of bubbles with certain Asian countries or New Zealand; do you think any place we could go, Brits could also go? I'd rather see this person for a couple of weeks than not at all.

additionally – I'm able to go live there, but how liberal is the UK Government in letting in new citizens? seems relatively lax, but again, would Australia let me leave if I had a visa?

furthermore, I think it's a good thread to just keep an update on when we can leave. looks like July is the time. I honestly think they'll open it up, but it'll be two weeks of self-paid quarantine, I just can't see the average soft Australian copping this sh*t for what'll be almost 18 months. it'll get to a point where they sort of throw their arms up. I'm not professional though. Frydenburg also threw up January 1 as a potential date. what I would give for that to be the ******* case...

People can throw their arms up all they want, planes are not going to start appearing in the sky straight away.

I think there will be more rage if state boarders are still closed in 2021.

I think Alan Jones said today International travel is very unlikely until the second half of 2021.

I can't see why you would need to hotel quarantine if you'd been vaccinated which is a real possibility by mid next year.

I've always thought would we need almost a proof of vaccine and if so we're basically free to go. Some ways to punish non vaxxers.

apparently airlines are all helping fund this 15-minute tester – you line up (distanced), they test you, and if you're positive you're off to quarantine at home and if you aren't you're free to board. seems a very good idea.

Reckon if that style of testing is legit, then that would be ideal.
