Title
Travel exemptions for COVID-19 vaccinated grandparents
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that a grandparent from Sydney was denied her application for travel to Melbourne, despite being fully vaccinated from COVID-19. The reason provided in her application to travel was to care for her daughter who is battling an advanced form of breast cancer and to help her son-in-law care for her two grandchildren.

Many fully COVID-19 vaccinated grandparents in Victoria have grandchildren who live interstate or overseas. They were upset to hear this news and are worried that it could happen to them or their friends.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to grant travel exemption permits for grandparents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 so that they can travel interstate for care-giving purposes.
