Woman traveling without a mahram

Q: I want to ask about travelling alone. My sister lives in Australia and she wants to visit us in India. She cannot come with her husband or son because of their work and school. My other sister is also coming from Saudi with her children so we can reunite as my mother is not well

My question is, is it permissible for her to travel alone as she is confused?

A: It is not permissible for a woman to travel for the distance of 78 km or more without a mahram.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
