Immigration

Australian Immigration.

Australia is one of the most popular countries in the world for people to want to migrate to.

Consequently, to avoid an unsustainable fast increase in the countries population, due to Immigration, there are various factors to hold the total numbers of new immigrants in check.

These factors include high visa processing fees and strict limits on annual numbers of visas that can be granted.

  • Surbhi 17th April 2021 at 3:25 am on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Only option I am aware of is travel agents who are giving long transit routes like 30-60 hours. I guess only those are taking such flights who's condition is much critical like job loss, rent getting payed in AU, medical reasons, visa expiry etc. I haven't made any arrangement yet. I just hope Australia gets open or provide more travel...

  • Rex 15th April 2021 at 3:23 am on subclass 300 Visa Processing Times in 2020Admin - Are Australia’s borders closed due to covid 19 ? If yes then whether or not a couple is married has nothing to do with that. Laws decided by a good or bad day, what a structured country we live in. I realise you may wish to avoid any scrutiny in here,should someone from the govt look in. I...

  • Rex 14th April 2021 at 3:48 am on subclass 300 Visa Processing Times in 2020This post from a forum is on point (Won’t put her name) it’s just (expletive ). If we are willing to pay for quarantine, flights and get all the COVID tests, what’s actually the problem? Shouldn’t matter how long people are together or what proof we have. Australia just want to hold the image to the rest of the world...
  • Rex 14th April 2021 at 2:57 am on subclass 300 Visa Processing Times in 2020So the travel exemption required for entering Australia. That’s to prevent covid spread ? Otherwise our borders would not be closed ? So what do things like joint finances and relationship social aspects etc etc have to do with that ? Which have already been covered in a 300 visa. Obviously they have nothing to do with preventing any virus...
  • Natalia 13th April 2021 at 4:25 pm on subclass 300 Visa Processing Times in 2020Honestly, he's saying he doesn't know and it is impossible to find out. I am following a few forums and read what other couples say, agents too. They all know, because as you say, it is shown. Can't fight with this agency, we only want this to be over and certainly switch then. I am Ukrainian, but I was in...

  • Admin 12th April 2021 at 8:09 pm on Police Checks in Maiden and Married NameI would play safe and request it in both names. If you just use one, there is a chance that immigration will request one for the other name later.
  • Tahir 11th April 2021 at 3:40 pm on subclass 300 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi Admin, thanks for your reply and guidance. We were in S300 queue for more than a year with no movement on application. Will the department still consider one year wait time once we move to S309 or they will put us back in the queue from start?
