My visa is expiring or expired, what do I do?MSAImmigration2020-10-09T19:44:43+08:00
It is unlawful to stay in Australia without a valid visa. It is important to immediately take the necessary action so that you remain lawful.
The options available to those who overstay their visa are very limited. The Australian government expects visa holders to leave before their visa expires and considers overstayers as unlawful non-citizens.
Our expert migration consultant at MSA Immigration Australia can help you with potential options for you to remain lawful in Australia taking into consideration your unique circumstance and your future plans in revisiting Australia or permanently living in Australia.
Is it possible to extend my visa in Australia?MSAImmigration2020-10-09T20:06:51+08:00
If you want to stay longer in Australia, you will need to submit a new visa application.
However, if you have an 8503 ‘No further stay’ condition on your visa, you cannot apply for a new visa while you are in Australia. You must leave Australia no later than the date of your visa expiration, except in extremely limited circumstances.
Our expert migration consultant at MSA Immigration Australia can help you with applying for visa ‘extension’ or request for waiver of 8503 ‘No further stay’ condition.
If my visa application is refused, what do I do?MSAImmigration2020-10-09T20:06:51+08:00
Processing times for all visa and citizenship applications are posted on the Department of Home Affairs website and are updated frequently providing an indicative timeframe for processing applications.

Can I get my visa application expedited?MSAImmigration2020-10-09T20:05:16+08:00
