What Actually Is Re-Entry Ban to Australia?
Have you found yourself being unable to re-enter Australia? Are you unable to visit your loved one because you have a re-entry ban? That means you’ve just got re-entry ban to Australia.
Not sure what that means or why you have been given one?
A re-entry ban to Australia is usually applied to a visa applicant who has breached the conditions of their Australian Visa.
If you have been given a re-entry ban that means you are unable to return to Australia for a period of 3 years.
In some re-entry ban to Australia cases, it can be more than 3 years depending on the severity of the breach.
So what does a “Breach of Visa Conditions” mean?
For every Australian visa there are certain conditions that a visa holder must abide by.
It is important to know exactly what the conditions of your visa are from the moment it is granted.
Visa Conditions can include but are not limited to, no study, no work, and specified entry and exit dates just to name a few.
The most common reasons for a re-entry ban at Australia to be applied are:
- You have overstayed your visa expiry date by more than 28 days;
- Your visa was cancelled due to breaching of conditions;
- An Australian visa may be cancelled if one or more of the following occurs;
- You provided false documents or false information to the Department of Home Affairs;
- You are convicted of an offence against a law of the Commonwealth, or a law of an Australian state or territory;
- You have breached a visa condition, for example, you worked when your visa had a “no work condition”;
- You hold a student visa but have been found not to be a genuine student;
- You hold a visitor visa but were found not to be in Australia as a genuine visitor.
What can you do if you have had a re-entry ban to Australia applied to you?
Prevention is a lot better than a cure and it is best to try to avoid having a re-entry ban applied in the first place, failing that there is really not that much you can do and in most cases only two options available depending on the individual circumstances of your case.
The first option is to wait the 3 years and then apply for a visa once the ban has ceased. The second is to attempt to have the re-entry ban to Australia waived.
This option usually only occurs if you are able to show compelling reasons that affect Australia directly or an Australian citizen or Permanent resident, such as a dependent.
It is recommended that if you are preparing a submission to seek the removal of the re-entry ban, to first seek the assistance from a registered migration agent in order to ensure that not only do you have compelling reasons but that your submission is persuasive and convincing.
