Australia tells its citizens in need that they are alone. Australians attempting to return home from India face a prison sentence of up to 5 years and / or a fine of A $ 66,600. The temporary ban is the first in Australian history to make it illegal for its citizens to return home. The law comes into effect on Monday and will be reviewed on May 15th.
9,000 Australian citizens wanted to return home from India and now face criminal penalties and prison terms if they attempt to do so.

Human Rights Watch added that Australia should focus on safe quarantine regulations for returning residents, rather than putting energy into criminalization so that its own citizens seek safety at home.
Australia will suspend direct passenger flights from India until May 15 to avoid the spread of more virulent variants of Covid-19. Prime Minister Scott Morrison also says Australia will send medical supplies to India, which is struggling with a lack of beds and oxygen supplies.

Returning citizens are threatened with five years in prison within the next 48 hours if they were there India in the past two weeks.
