Emergency Travel to/from Australia
We are all aware that Australia has strict international border measures in place to protect the health of the Australian community, this has resulted in very limited flights available to and from Australia.
At FBI Travel we have been using our years of expertise of the complexities of how airlines operate to assist Australians who must go overseas for emergency reasons and repatriate others who have not been able to return previously.
