But a number of older Australians living abroad are worried because there is no agreement on social security between Australia and France, because they do not have the opportunity to support themselves. And of course, it is now impossible to travel to Australia, and it is not advisable to travel to other countries, even if they have an agreement with Australia. No one knows what the future holds.
