So imagine this: you’re a temporary visa holder, living and working in Australia. 

You travel back home to see your family, or maybe to attend a funeral. You’re allowed to – that’s fine. But then the unexpected - the pandemic hits, and Australia closes its borders.

Produced by Fiona Mayers and Killian Keating for 6HFM in Perth.

Supervising Production by Lynda McCaffery
