Hello, I believe this petition is incredibly necessary, as Australians all over the world, have been suffering!! All the way from America, to South Africa, through Europe, England, China, Russia and the Philipenese islands.

I've heard stories of people sleeping in cars, aired mattresses, and losing thousands of dollars on waisted airplane tickets that left them behind, and having no food or water!!

My personal story starts in February, I came to visit one month to see friends and family in South Africa, that I haven't seen in over 5 years. We didn't hear the news until we had our first positive covid patient, which didn't happen until March 15th. Suddenly we had to pack our bags, and insist on getting an earlier flight, but all the flights were already booked out. Instead, they delayed my flight by a full day, 23rd March, Australia went into FULL lock down, letting absolutely nobody in. Since March, I've had 8 plane tickets cancelled, and can't find a 9th, as the Cap is at full capacity!! I've lost all my money for the first 4 tickets, the last 4 was re booked for free by Qatar, but on the 13th of August, we all got our confirmation to head to Qatar embassy, to catch the busses to Johannesburg Airport. I had done my covid test, bags backed, ready to head home. I got there, and they told me; " Sorry, you're not on the list, go home and try again with another flight". I couldn't help but cry, I went outside and just completely broke down, devastated!!! I stood around for 2 hours, trying to get on those busses, nobody helped me! It tore me appear to watch everyone get on those busses but me, turned out that they over booked, had nothing to do with Australia. So I've been stuck here for 6 months and 10 days now, with apperantly another 2 to 3 months still to wait. I have nothing left, and I am so sure that there are thousands with a similar story. 

Please Australia, look after your people, WE WANT TO COME HOME!!! PLEASE ���
