A FORMER Albury resident forced to move home to South Australia after losing his Wodonga job has been allowed into the Festival State after his plight was reported in The Border Mail.
Chooka Parker was stuck at Wentworth on the NSW-Victorian border last week after SA authorities stalled in approving a travel exemption he sought on August 9.
Following his case being detailed in Saturday's Border Mail, Mr Parker got an email that day stating he could travel to his parents' home in Murray Bridge.
"It's great to be back and have a bit more freedom," he said on Tuesday.
