RE: Letter in Support of My Visa Application for a Visitor visa (subclass 600)
Dear Case Officer,
I, Josephine Hartanto, am an Indonesian citizen living in Indonesia. My passport number is C123456. I am writing this letter based on my intention to travel to Sydney, Australia.
I intend to spend my holiday off work to travel to New South Wales to visit Sydney, the Opera House, the Animal Park and other places around for two weeks, starting from 22 July 2019 to 04 August 2019. During my short holiday in Sydney, I will be staying in different accommodations.
I will support myself during my vacation in Sydney. I have a stable job in Jakarta, Indonesia as the head of accounting in PT. Makmur Jaya, and I have been employed in this company since November 2014.
As the Head of Accounting, I am responsible for all financial administration in this company. As a hard-working employee, I sometimes feel worn out, and if it happens, I usually take my annual leave and go on a vacation. This year, I have applied for my annual leave and have been granted two weeks for my short holiday to Australia from 22 July 2019 to 04 August 2019. I have to return to work on 05 August 2019.
I plan to visit Sydney in Australia as to me, it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is also very popular for tourists from Indonesia. Every time I hear about Australia, I think about the city of Sydney. So far, I have only seen Sydney and some of its iconic landmarks such as the Opera House on television, movies, et cetera. I want to witness it personally and take pictures as a memory of the places I visit. Also, I want to see kangaroos in real life. During my stay in Australia, I will stay in accommodations near places I want to visit such as Original Backpakers Sydney, which is 20 minutes away from the Sydney Opera House and 33 minutes away by foot from the Wildlife Sydney Zoo. I will book for my hotel stay and plane tickets as soon as I receive my visitor visa (600).
I am very close to my parents as they always take care of me since I was a child and encourage me to be someone who is not easily satisfied and who still work towards self-development. Now, my father has retired and together with my mother, he takes care of our oil palm plantation. Since I am the third child with five siblings, we usually take turns sending money to our parents. Besides my parents, I also have assets in the form of a land and a house.
I can guarantee that I am a genuine visitor and have no intention of overstaying my visa. I will make sure that I leave Australia before my visitor visa expires and I obey all of the conditions on my visitor visa. I have all of my family and friends in Indonesia whom I will return to. Besides that, I have to return to work on 05 August 2019. I have built my career for five years since 2014, and it is very unreasonable for me to overstay my visa and be irresponsible.
I will ensure that during my short stay in Australia that I obey all of my visa conditions and that I do not act in any way that could be harmful to the Australian
