What Are the Consequences for Overstaying an Australian Visa? Is It True I Could Receive Permanent Ban?
Overstaying an Australian Visa means to remain in Australia after your Australian Visa has expired.
Some of the consequences for overstaying an Australian visa is being deported and banned from applying for any Australian visa or re-entering Australia for 3 years.
It would not be nice to be banned for 3 years especially if you have family in Australia, an Australian Partner, or you were wanting to continue study in Australia.
It would mean you would have to defer your studies for 3 years or continue your study elsewhere.
There is also no guarantee that after the 3-year ban has ceased that you will be approved for another visa.
Your visa history is taken into account when applying for an Australian visa, and if you have breached the conditions of your visa or overstayed your visa the risk of refusal is very high.
There are a number of reasons why a person may overstay an Australian visa.
Perhaps you just simply forget what date your visa expires, perhaps you do not want to leave and so chose to just stay without extending your current visa or reapplying a new one.
Whatever the reason, it is important that you abide by your visa conditions and never overstay your visa expiry date.
So what should you do if you want to avoid the consequences of overstaying an Australian Visa?
It is important that you take action immediately.
The longer you leave it, the worse it looks to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the worse the consequences will be.
The Department of Immigration and Border protection will grant you a BVE (Bridging visa E) or 28 days of leniency to make arrangements to leave Australia.
If you are wanting to apply for another visa, or extend your visa you must do so from offshore only.
However, because of overstaying an Australian visa, the risk of refusal is very high.
If you have overstayed your visa and you wish to apply for a new visa, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a registered migration agent.
Your chosen Australian migration agent will be able to review your case in more depth, understanding the reason for your overstay and determining what your best option would be in regards to a new visa pathway.
In some cases, there may be compelling reasons as to why you should be allowed to apply for a new visa onshore, or why a 3-year ban should be waived.
Your migration agent will be able to advise you if you have grounds for having these waivered.
