Overseas based pilots touring to Australia

Postby Mag seal » Fri Mar 27 2020, 01:55

Are touring pilots exempt the 14 day isolation after arriving in Australia if you are coming here to work?

The airline pilots and crew are I believe but don’t think you fit that category so I’m guessing you have to isolate like everyone else.

Would be a pretty sweet life wouldn’t it? Quarantine yourself at each end back and forth! :D Just gotta convince the boss to pay you

Even airline crews dead-heading back here are sent off to quarantine.

I've just seen the news and the beginning of mandatory isolation of all arrivals is starting soon so that answers my question.

Good luck to you all.

Could be problematic for 7/7 schedules? Even 14/14’s could get interesting.

Sounds awesome/miserable. At least it’s work though.

Some Offshore companies have exemptions for their guys so no self isolation reqd.
