Question regarding IED Waiver Request

Myself and my family (Wife and Baby) have been granted 189 PR recently. While we were planning to make an initial entry sometime in May 2020 the risk of Corona virus has made us rethink about the AUS travel plans especially considering my daughter who is only 1 year old. Hence we thought of applying for an IED waiver. Appreciate if anyone can answer the following questions regarding the IED waiver email. Thank you in advance.

1. Do I need to send three separate emails (One per family member) or can I send one email and request IED waiver for all members of the family.
2. What information (Other than the compelling reason it self) should be included? i.e. Passport number, Grant number, Full name, Age etc...
3. Should I attach the grant letters in the email?
4. Are the following email addresses the correct one's to send the email?

Please note that our IED deadline is in Feb 2021 but I feel the Coronavirus may still be an issue even then hence thinking of the IED waiver request.

I have sent them an email no response from them yet. The automated reply email states it would take 28 days for a response if any.

Did you get any response?

I am also in the similar situation and we have booked the flight next week. IED is April 17. Am not sure whether the flights will be cancelled. Too much uncertain the situation is. I still did not send any email to DHA yet.

Dear all,

We are in a desperate situation, someone please help.

We have our IED on 17 April (visa issue on 17 Oct 19) and we have booked the flight in Qatar Airways for coming Friday. With the recent threat in cancellation of flight and ban for re-entry to Oman, we are not sure whether we can actually board the flight and make an entry. Can someone help me on this tough situation? Will I get a waiver in IED at this last moment?

Please please reply..

I can’t imagine All my effort of 3 year struggle in getting this PR going in vain.

I know the struggle is real but don't panic.

Each applicant who needs a IED waiver has to email DoHA providing details like;
Passport, DOB, visa grant number and a reason why they need the waiver.
You can send your email to any of the below address.

[email protected]

You can expect a reply back within 7-10 working days(this is not a official time frame but what other applicants have reported in the past)

Send an email requesting an IED waiver (Visa condition 8504). Include all visa applicant details. I even attached the grant letters.
I sent an email on March 11 and got a response on March 16 with a letter which includes all visa holder names.The letter states breach of visa condition 8504 will not cancel our visa's. Hope this helps.

I sent the email to the following addresses:

I’ve sent the email today morning requesting the waiver, hoping to hear from them soon. For the time being, I’m thinking of canceling the ticket for coming Friday and will take a call on further travel as and when the situation asks for.

Keeping the fingers crossed.

Thanks herap for the first news of hope which I heard in the last 48 hours.

Hi all

Is there a template I must follow or form to fill out for the waiver?

Or do I just send them a "casual" email requesting the waiver?

What is best to refer to as the reason for the waiver - the risk of getting the virus, or the fact that airplanes are grounded/borders closed (not sure if they might come back and say it should be resolved in a few months so they don't see a need for the waiver).
