Travel ban challenge

The overseas travel ban issued by the Australian government has seriously impacted many Australians, in a variety of ways, including many of our members at People for Safe Vaccines who continue to suffer damage and loss of liberty, dignity and income.

In response to demand, and careful consideration of the determination and the laws, it was decided that we confront the inconsistencies by raising them with the Federal Minster for Health, seeking to have them review the Government's position and rectify the travel ban, including:-

  • repeal the Overseas Travel Ban Determination and the Outward Travel Restrictions Operation Directive;

  • introduce individual, proportionate and least restrictive exit requirements pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Biosecurity Act; and

  • ensure that biosecurity measures are applied in accordance with the BSC Act and do not restrict people’s rights to freely travel unless they genuinely pose a contagion risk.

It is our considered opinion that their blanket approach is lacking science, justification, proportionality and fails to take the least restrictive manner of imposition and in the process, civil liberties and general protections and rights of merits review ignored.

So, on the 16th April, a letter was sent to the federal Health Minister requesting the repeal of the overseas travel ban directives, on the grounds they are unlawful and not scientifically-based.

People should only be restricted from leaving the country where they are properly diagnosed to cause a genuine contagion risk, in accordance with established medical practice.

Please go to the chronology page to view a copy of the letter.

We have asked the minister to provide a satisfactory response by 23rd April 2021. Should we fail to receive one, we will be looking at filing Court proceedings.

Regarding the email that was sent out to members: I have questions about our personal information. Why are the lawyers against Serene saying they need our personal information to protect us? What is their argument? Are we members at risk legally or otherwise? What is the opposing argument for taking away Serena’s license? The information is very one-sided here and we deserve to know the other side of the story. Have we members been taken for a ride and our money used unethically? Just painting Serene and other people with access to our money and information as “victims” and “fighters” without presenting the opposing argument is highly suspect. P4SV is quickly losing credibility. If this is not swiftly addressed I…

P4SV is not impacted by what is transpiring with Serene at present. Our work here still continues as Ben Clemens is the lawyer handling these matters. The VLSB is not seeking member information here. It is only Advocate Me class actions.

Is there an update or advice on other matters, I have received a response to my email from Hall & Wilcox and have questions about the process and what I should or should not be doing.


The PCR are rubbish and dangerous if it is the case that there are nanobots and God knows what on the tips of the swab. (Also, remember that the manufacturers of cotton buds and swabs state that they should not be place in the ears, eyes or nose and yet government sanctioned testing allows this! Another example rules apply when it suits or flagrant ignoring of safety.) So even if we are 'allowed' to travel anywhere without restrictions because we are NOT contagious then how do we prove we are not, without undergoing one of their false, spurious and non-scientific tests? I mean what the hell? I am so over this imposition on healthy people. The constant notion that …
