And good for him. That is not the issue. I know of MANY Australians who have lost jobs and can't get home. Getting bumped off flights 3 and 4 times. As the airlines are taking 3 months to process refunds they are having to pay each time they try for a new one because their rebooking of the originals are months away. Most expats staying in a country rely on their employment to keep their visa. Lose the job, lose the visa. Can't stay yet can't get home. It's a sh!t show and I am appalled at the handling of it.
