Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Pandemic Event Visa 408 Onshore Application

Pandemic Event Visa 408 Onshore Application

Temporary Activity Visa (Subclass 408): Pandemic Event – Onshore Application

Back in April 2020, the Australian Government introduced the Temporary Activity Visa (subclass 408): Pandemic event Visa to respond to temporary Visa holders’ concerns about the inability to fly back to their home country due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. 

Pandemic Event Visa 408 Eligibility

To be eligible for this Pandemic event Visa 408, your current visa must be expiring within 28 days or has expired less than 28 days ago. You must be in Australia at the time of the application.

What are the evidence or supporting documents needed for Pandemic Event Visa 408?

You also need to provide evidence from your employer that you are currently being employed in a critical sector and the position cannot be filled by an Australian citizen or permanent resident. The critical sectors include but are not limited to agriculture, health, aged and disability care and childcare. You are also eligible for the Pandemic Event Visa even if you have yet to complete the required 3 or 6 months’ work for your second or third year Working Holiday or Work and Holiday Visa in a critical sector. 

The following evidence must be provided in order to obtain your work rights:

  • Letter from your employer confirming your employment is in the critical sector.
  • Letter, contract of employment (including start & end dates) or payslips as a proof of current work in a critical sector.
  • Proof that effort to employ Australian citizens or PR was done but to no avail.

Alternatively, you need to prove that you are not eligible for any other Australian visa. You can apply for the COVID-19 Pandemic Event stream onshore online and the cost for the application is free. You are generally unable to extend this visa of any stream. Therefore, you would need to apply for another visa if you wish to stay longer.

What happens if you have No Further Stay Conditions when you are applying for the Pandemic Event Visa?

If you have a “No Further Stay” condition on your current visa and it is expiring, you would first need to apply for a waiver on the condition imposed on your current visa (No Further Stay – 8503, 8534, or 8535) as soon as possible before your visa cease effect, as the processing times is up to 28 days to receive an outcome on a waiver request, and may take longer if you are requested to provide further information or undergo a medical examination. Once approved, you can then apply for this Pandemic Event visa stream. Lodging a waiver request does not automatically mean that you can remain in Australia lawfully while the request is being decided. 

If your visa expires before the waiver request decision is made, you will become unlawful and it will have serious consequences.
