Visa Extensions Perth | Interstaff Perth Migration Agents
If you hold a Temporary Visa that is expiring soon, here’s what you need to know about your options to stay in Australia and apply for a new visa.
Temporary Visa holders in Australia must ensure they continue to hold a valid visa to remain lawful.
You should apply for a new visa before your current visa expires and you may wish to seek professional advice on your eligibility and options.
If your visa is expiring in the next few months, you may wish to consider visa extension options to apply for a new visa and stay in Australia.
To understand which visa options are available to you to stay in Australia and how we can help, contact one of Interstaff’s Registered Migration Agents to arrange a consultation.
Simply get in touch below or on +61 8 9221 3388.
If your visa is expiring soon, it is common to think you may need a visa extension, but in Australia, the process of extending your stay involves applying for a new visa.
In some cases, a person can apply for a Visitor Visa to allow a few extra months in Australia. Applying for a Visitor Visa generally enables you to stay in Australia for 3, 6 or 12 months, depending on your circumstances.
Alternatively, other options may be available to you depending on your eligibility for various Skilled, Family, Partner, or Student Visa options.
An eligibility assessment with our migration agents can help you to understand your options.
If you apply for a new visa, you will often be granted a Bridging Visa. This allows you to lawfully stay in Australia while your application for the new visa is being assessed.
During the pandemic, the Government also introduced the 408 Pandemic Event Visa for people with limited visa options.
This visa may also be available to Temporary Visa holders working in particular sectors – if interested, we would recommend a consultation to assess your eligibility. As with all visas, substantial evidence is required to support your application.
Usually, there are very limited circumstances available for a person to stay in Australia if they have a ‘No Further Stay’ Condition (8503, 8534 or 8535) on their visa.
If you have a ‘No Further Stay’ Condition on your visa, you may wish to seek professional advice as you may first need to request a waiver for the condition before you can apply for a new visa.
If your visa is due to expire, you may wish to consider visa extension options to apply for a new visa and stay in Australia.
To have your eligibility assessed and discuss any questions you may have about your application requirements, simply contact one of Interstaff’s Registered Migration Agents to arrange a consultation.
