The team at No Borders Law Group is thrilled to share a recent success story that highlights our commitment to providing efficient and effective immigration solutions for our clients. In this particular case, we were contacted by a non-resident client who needed to extend her visa in order to arrange an Australian passport for her newborn baby. Our legal team sprang into action, and within just three days, the client’s visa application was granted – currently the fastest processing time for this type of visa.
The visa in question was a Subclass 600 Visitor visa, and processing time for this visa stream can vary greatly, with 25% of applicants waiting up to nine days for approval. Although, in this case, our team was able to assess the documentation quickly and provide compelling reasons why the client should be granted the visa extension.
Visitor visa subclass 600 is a temporary visa that allows non-citizens to visit Australia for up to 12 months for tourism or business purposes.
However, there are several reasons why an application for this visa stream may be refused by the Department of Home Affairs:
- One of the most common reasons for refusal is insufficient documentation. Applicants must provide detailed and accurate information, as well as supporting documentation, to demonstrate their eligibility for the visa. Failure to provide this information can result in the application being refused.
- Another reason for refusal is a lack of genuine intention to visit Australia. This means that the Department may suspect that the applicant is planning to stay in Australia for longer than the permitted visa duration, or that they may be planning to work or study illegally while in the country.
- Other reasons for refusal can include a criminal record or a previous visa cancellation or refusal, as well as health or character concerns. It is important for applicants to understand the eligibility criteria for this visa stream and to provide comprehensive documentation to support their application in order to avoid these common reasons for refusal.
What makes this success story even more noteworthy is the fact that the client in question was an African resident. As we know, African residents often face additional hurdles when it comes to immigration and visa applications. However, our team was committed to providing the same level of exceptional service and support to this client as we do to all of our clients, regardless of their country of origin.
At No Borders Law Group, we are proud to have a team of experienced and knowledgeable immigration lawyers who are passionate about helping clients achieve their immigration goals. Whether you are seeking a visa extension, applying for permanent residency, or navigating the complex world of corporate immigration, our team is here to help.
In conclusion, the recent success story of securing a visa extension for an African resident in record time is a shining example of our team’s commitment to providing exceptional immigration solutions for our clients.
We look forward to continuing to help clients from all over the world achieve their immigration goals and build bright futures in Australia.
