Visitor Visa Stay over 12 months in Australia.

Stating in Australia on a Visitor Visa for over 12 months.

The maximum stay in Australia, on a visitor visa, is normally limited to 12 months in each 18 month period.

Exceptional circumstances, to allow more than 12 months out of 18 months as a visitor in Australia, are decided on a case by case basis.

Exceptional circumstances may include, but are not limited to:

  • Inability to travel due to medical reasons.
  • Death or serious illness within close family.
  • Natural disaster in home country.
  • War or civil unrest in home country.

Exceptional circumstances normally include a change, or changes, to the applicant’s circumstances that could not have been anticipated at the time the visa was granted, and that were beyond the applicant’s control.
