Your student visa would cancel if transit China

Many Nepalese choose China Southern Airlines transiting Guangzhou to travel Australia for cheap airfare (they allow carrying more luggage) but not a good idea this time.

Nepalese students returning from holidays or making the first trip could have their student visa cancelled if they board into a flight to Australia transiting China. Australia government has enforced new travel restrictions from 1 February 2020 to keep Australians safe from Novel Coronavirus. Australian Department of Home Affairs released travel restriction notice, which came into effect from 1 February restricts all temporary visa holders entering Australia via mainland China.

The Department suggests international travellers ‘do not travel to Australia this time.’ If anyone attempts to travel to Australia directly or indirectly after being in mainland China, airlines will not allow to bord into the flight. Anyone who got success in entering Australia after visiting mainland China if determined, would keep into detention for a quarantine period after cancelling an Australian visa.
