What is the detail with not being allowed to leave Oz? I hadn't heard that rule. Is it a blanket ban, or just you need to get a clear test first?

Australian citizens and permanent residents are not allowed to leave Australia unless granted a special exemption.

Visitors and others, with expiring visas are permitted to depart.

If you're a citizen but normally reside outside Australia (e.g., you're visiting family) then you'll get an exemption easily.

hmmmm, that might turn out quite tricky under a number of international treaties... 

Preventing a citizen of another country from leaving yours (permanent resident) might be seen as arbitrary detention...

You can leave Australia if you're bona-fide leaving to live in another country permanently.   I know a couple of Kiwis that have sold up and come home from Australia recently. 

The law is designed to stop people leaving for a few days, a week, or a month and then returning and adding pressure to the quarantine facilities.
