Can we get a visa grant reviewed?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully provide the best answer. I just have no idea why any person with a heart would grant this type of visa. 

Can we get a visa grant reviewed? 

My partner just got granted a 3 year multi entry tourist visa, but we specifically asked for the "up to 12 month" stay and in my letter I had a section asking not to be granted a multi-entry. Is there a way we can get our visa reviewed? I cannot for the life of me begin to understand the reasoning behind why they would do this. 

 

Why This Visa? 

In the application letter, we asked for the "upto 12 months" and we specifically asked, not for a multi entry visa as we want to spend the whole time in Australia, which makes sense to us, because we have been staying in Thailand for 6 years living together, already traveled to Australia twice previously at 3 months each. We want to spend an extended time with family, friends and following our fully laid out itinerary for 2020.  

 

VISA TYPE

Visitor (subclass 600): Granted
Visa conditions
8101 - No work
8201 - Maximum three months study

Date of grant 27 November 2019
Must not arrive after 27 November 2022
Length of stay 3 month(s) from the date of each arrival
Travel Multiple entries

IMMI thinking is that most tourists would not spend any more than 3 months per visit, due to funds etc.  Limiting people to 3 months forces them to exit and return, reducing the chances of using the visa for long stays and as an alternative to a PR visa.

It maybe worth a letter to IMMI in your case, or a chat with an agent.

Absolute waste of time writing to IMMI. Firstly any period of stay granted is entirely at the discretion of the decision maker. Once an application has been decided it cannot be revisited by the Department. I would recommend that once in Australia applying for another visitor visa for a period of stay of 12 months from date of arrival.

We are in Australia now and coming up to the first month finished of the 3 month multi entry. We plan to re-apply on April 20th. But I wonder what will happen due to this Coronavirus shutting everything down and last I checked there were no flights back to Thailand. What do you think will happen? Hopefully they announce everyone with a tourist visa can stay 😷

Sadly they haven't announced that everyone with a tourist visa can stay. Most countries are on lock down. People are becoming unlawful non-citizen without intending to because of the corona virus

Anyone who is on a TV now will have to apply for an onshore TV to stay lawfully. If their TV runs out before a new one has been granted they need to apply for a BVE. There is no reason whatsoever for anyone to be an unlawful non citizen

Thanks @SammyJ

If the TV had a '8503 - no further stay' condition and one applies for a waiver but the visa expires before the waiver is granted;

1. Can the waiver be granted after the TV has expired

2. Once the TV runs out and one applies for a BVE can they then apply for another TV while on a BVE if the 'no further stay' has been granted under circumstance written on 1 above?
