  1. Thanks for your reply. But is there no chance to get the ban waived? I have enough proof that I didn't overstay my visa. Like writing a letter to the Australian embassy etc.??
  2. Hi there, I’m really happy that I found this forum. I tried to find information on the internet which was impossible so far. So I’m really hoping someone can help me here. I was 2016 in Australia on a student visa. When I decided I want to leave the country I told my college and signed the official document which says that the college will inform the DIBP about my withdrawal. Anyway after leaving Australia in October 2016 I started a new job in Germany. In July 2017 I received an email from the DIBP with the subject “Notification of cancellation student visa”. I did not read the email any further cause I was assuming that is the final document that just shows that I cancelled my visa. Maybe that was a little bit naive but I never did anything wrong so I didn’t expect anything bad. Roughly six months later I applied for a tourist visa without knowing anything about the ban. After almost 2 weeks I found about the ban and was totally surprised. But because I already booked a flight to Australia to see my boyfriend and friends I needed that tourist visa. So I gathered all legal documents and others together (German work contract, flight tickets etc.) that could proof that I didn’t do anything wrong. I even had an email from the college where they admitted that they forgot to report me. But they still didn’t considered my documents and denied the tourist visa. That’s how we ended up in New Zealand now. We would like to apply for a partner visa soon. I’m worried that the three year ban could become a problem for the the partner visa in New Zealand as well in Australia. We haven’t really decided where we would like to live yet... More importantly I would like to know if there is any possibility to appeal a case like this where a ban is in place without haven’t done anything wrong at all. Also I would like to know if I could appeal it by myself or if I need a solicitor. I really appreciate any advise. Thanks a lot in advance!

Would just be nice to have a clean record. Also I would like to know if I could appeal it by myself or if I need a solicitor. I really appreciate any advise. Thanks a lot in advance!
