Finally I managed to get the required paperwork to get a sweeper flight back to where I live. But then I had to go into quarantine for 14 days on arrival (in the end I did 10 days in a hotel and when my test result came back I was allowed to do the final 4 days at home).

I think it is going to be a very long time before I travel anywhere again.
Thanks for sharing your experience, Lobster! Sounds like quite an ordeal. I can't imagine living away for 4.5 months like that. Glad you made it back home eventually!
