Gilmore MP Fiona Phillips says there are at least 22 Gilmore residents stranded overseas who can't get a flight home, although one is set to return to Australia on Sunday.
It is estimated nationally 30,000 Australians are trapped overseas and wanting to come home.
The 22 Gilmore residents are stranded in locations across the globe. One person is in Russia, two in Sweden, four in the Philippines. There are also people in Guatemala, Ecuador, Canada and the UK.
Mrs Phillips said she had been directly liaising with family members and those stuck overseas.
"We talk with their family members, we raise those cases through Senator Penny Wong's office and the Department of Home Affiars," she said.
"It has been really hard - so many flights have been cancelled."
Many of those who have reached out for help are under difficult circumstances.
"In the Philippines people have taken 12 hour treks to get to an airport, only then to have their flights cancelled.
"One gentleman in France was left homeless in his car because he couldn't get a flight back home."
Thankfully the gentleman in France has now returned home.
While there have been some successes, Mrs Phillips says not enough is being done to bring them back home.
"What I think is really disappointing is all the flights that have been cancelled, there is not enough flights for people to get home.
"There definitely should be more flights, there are a lot of empty planes that aren't flying because of COVID and we should be using them to bring people back.
"They've done everything right but they just can't get a flight."
This week the Federal Government announced it would lift the weekly international arrivals cap from 4000 to 6000 travellers from September 25.
