NOTES FOR VISA APPLICATION

There are various types of visa options. Each of which has specific requirements. PMEC explains and solves the visa and migration law issues facing both individual and business clients. In general, for individual clients, the process starts from identifying the visa category, collecting relevant documents, paying the visa application fee, receiving the acknowledgement of the receipt of the visa application by the Department of Home Affairs. For business clients, there are some differences in the process.

Note 1: Find the best options of visa category

In general, the purpose of coming to Australia is the key element to determine the visa category. For example, a tourist visa will be rejected if the reason for the travel is competition or cultural exchange. A tourist visa can have different duration depending on the purpose and may be extended by application.

What to do when problem arises on my visa application?

Since the nature of each case is different, we provide an effective strategy in order to achieve the best outcome for the clients.

A bridging visa is a temporary visa ( not a sustantive visa ) granted to you in certain circumstances. It is classified as A/B/C/D/E/F/R. Each class carries different conditions. Bridging visas let you stay in Australia lawfully while your immigration status is resolved.

To avoid overstay while you are purchasing your flight ticket, we suggest you apply a Bridging E visa.

Employers have no right to cancel an employee’s work visa. Only the Department of Home Affairs has the authority to cancel your visa.

Check the recipient details if it is correct. Find out if you have the right to appeal at AAT . Check how long you are allowed for the appeal. Check if the visa or bridging visa is still valid. Then determine if you want to go through AAT.

For visa cancellation or refusal of visa application, the first thing you need to know is whether you have a right to review at AAT by referring to the notification letter. If your visa is cancelled and you have review rights as mentioned in the letter of visa cancellation, you are required to apply for a Bridging Visa E immediately. If your visa application is refused, the refusal letter will usually mention the duration for you to apply for a review from AAT within a time frame.

It varies according to the nature of the appeal. You can get more information via AAT website.
