I am sure the Australian Government only need this matter to be brought to its attention to act and do the right thing. Australia benefits from overseas visitors spending time living and working in its country and will want this to continue.

Signing if the are already here the smartest thing to do is to extend if they want to stay but if they want to go home then home is where they go.

As a regional employer I am concerned that the temporary workforce that backpackers provide will be diminished. Our business will suffer if we cannot get the workforce we require.

We should not be punished for a worldwide pandemic
Therefore anyone who missed out on work trips and vacations due to being cut short because of Covid 19 should be allowed to continue as though it had not happened
Let them continue their adventures
