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.

Temporary Visa Cancellations Based on Biosecurity Grounds List Updated 2021

With the new year has come new rules and regulations for visas and given the on-going COVID-19 pandemic even more than usual rules and regulations are being adjusted all the time. As of January 1st 2021 one updated regulation in response to the pandemic is temporary visa cancellations based on biosecurity grounds.

This means breaching such rules as failure to respond to questions or inquiries made by biosecurity officers or providing false or misleading information to biosecurity officers. In the case of the current pandemic this would relate to contact tracing and other protocols set up as a response to COVID-19.

Biosecurity are measures taken by governments to protect humans or animals against disease or harmful biological agents. These measures are generally enforced by customs agents, agriculture workers and scientists.

As Australia is an island nation with a unique ecosystem they prioritise biosecurity practices to preserve their distinctive natural make up and to stop the spread and dangers of new diseases and viruses such as COVID-19. They are proud to be one of the few countries in the world to remain free from the world’s most severe pests and diseases.”

COVID-19 as a Biosecurity Issue

A newly identified coronavirus COVID-19, has caused a worldwide pandemic of respiratory illness. The COVID-19 virus is a new virus related to the same family of viruses as the Extreme Acute Respiratory Syndrome and certain common colds. Due to this reason, COVID-19 is classified as a biosecurity issue for most countries in the world especially Australia.

Biosecurity is a vital part of the Australian government’s attempts to deter, react and recover from pests and diseases that endanger the economy and the environment. The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment administers the Biosecurity Act and various other acts in order to protect Australia’s animal, plant and human health status. Hence, breaching biosecurity to lie to contact tracers can get your temporary visa cancelled.

Updated List of Temporary Visa Cancellations Based on Biosecurity Ground

The following complete list of temporary visas that can be cancelled on biosecurity grounds:

Consequences of Temporary Visa Cancellations

If you receive a temporary visa cancellation under these circumstances you should be aware that the possibilities are possible deportation and or detainment if the situation is not resolved timely or you do not leave the country. You will receive notification from the home department if you have had your visa cancelled for any reason.

You may be able to obtain a bridging visa and you will be placed under a section 48 bar with which under very few exceptions you still have to leave Australia once it expires. If you don’t not have a bridging visa then you would be considered unlawful at that point.

This will also result in a 3 year ban from being able to apply for a new visa or being able to enter the country.

You are able request an appeal through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) however this is a very costly and time consuming process. This is why it would be best to familiarise yourself with any rules and regulations regarding Biosecurity in relation to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
