Australian Immigration Law

How to abide the Australian Immigration Rules

If you are interested in Australian immigration, either for temporarily visiting Australia OR permanently migrating to Australia, you will need to make an Australian Immigration Visa Application and obtain an appropriate immigration visa BEFORE you can lawfully enter Australia.

If you have already entered Australia, and your immigration visa is about to expire, you will need to make another Australian immigration visa application and obtain an appropriate visa BEFORE the expired date so that you can CONTINUE to stay lawfully in Australia.

Can I Immigrate to Australia

Maximizing Efforts to Immigrate Successfully to Australia

Each year, a certain number of foreigners immigrate to Australia. Rules laid down in the Migration Laws must be obeyed and conditions must be fulfilled to ensure foreigners enter the country under the Skills, Family, and Special Eligibility migration streams.

Maximizing Efforts to Immigrate Successfully to Australia

Many foreigners regularly immigrate to Australia either temporarily or permanently under various categories. According to statistics however, not all applicants get visa to immigrate to Australia. A lot of the prospective immigrants lose their chances to immigrate to the country because they did not use the apt methods and suitable migration categories to move to the country.

For some prospective immigrants, the visa applications are refused and for many, the wait period to immigrate prolongs for quite some time. A prudent immigrant would plan the immigration process in advance so that processing hassles are diminished.

Here are some tips and tricks to immigrate successfully to Australia at the fastest possible time.

Why Australian Visa Applications gets Rejected
Foreigners who want to immigrate to Australia must apply for a suitable Australian visa, comply with all the prerequisites and conditions, and send the application with necessary documents to the required office. But, the ground reality is that many fail to get a visa. There can be some common reasons, such as:

  • Application forms are incomplete or conditions are not met
  • Factors agreeable for visa sanctions are not available or have some hitches. These factors are:
  1. Relationship of the applicant with an Australian permanent resident or citizen
  2. Skills required for the jobs available in the Australian market
  3. Appropriate age and qualifications
  4. Funds required for maintaining oneself in the country
  5. Good health conditions
  6. Good character
  • Yearly target has already been met where the immigrant’s application of a particular stream has surpassed the allotment number. In other words, a “cap” put on the number of visas that can be sanctioned for a particular sub-class has been reached.

…Once, the limit is reached the visa application is put in a queue till further allotment is created. An incomplete form or applications with conditions not fulfilled are cancelled without notice.

Maximizing the Effort for Visa Grant
Consider a situation where your application is either in queue or rejected by the visa granting authorities. To salvage your application you need to address the problem instantly. For instance, if your visa application is rejected, you should:

  • Appeal to the Review Tribunal in Australia, provided you have a strong Australian backing or sponsorship. Keep in mind however, that the review formalities are another separate feature where application form needs to be filled in and a fee must be submitted along with it.
  • Appeal to the Federal and High Courts. As you can expect, legal formalities would require fees and other expenses.
  • Seek the services of an immigration visa provider. Remember, the visa providing adviser must provide you with a Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA) certified migration agent.

Immigration Agency
The immigration agency would employ certified MARA certified migration agents, who would do the following tasks:

  • Provide you with an online assessment of visa eligibility to understand your most viable visa subclass
  • Help in preparing Australian visa application
  • Delineate the documents required for the lodgement
  • Follow-up the status of the application with the Immigration Department
  • Successfully settle you in Australia after the visa grant

…And, the approach is simple, meticulous, effective, and affordable. Care is also taken to ensure that you find out a suitable career in Australia. Whether you want to study or work in the country, the immigration agency addresses this option so that you can pick the correct visa subclass. When settling in Australia as well, the agency would help immigrants to get a suitable career opportunity.

To expedite visa-granting formalities, the applicant must hire a professional adviser who can understand the requirement of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s rules and guidelines as mentioned in the immigration policy. The application must be presented in the best way so that they get approved at an optimum time. If you can do that or get help from advisers, you can get your visa at the right time.

Student Visa with Permission to Work

Education Providers can electronically notify DIMIA that a student has commenced their course. Where providers use the facility, students will then be able to lodge an electronic application for a Student Visa with Permission to Work and, if all other requirements are met, have their visa granted automatically. An email will then be sent advising the student of the grant of their Permission to Work visa.
Students who are not automatically granted a Permission to Work visa will receive an email advising them to contact the nearest DIMIA office.

Students cannot apply for Permission to Work over the Internet unless their Education Provider has informed DIMIA electronically that the student has commenced their study.

Procedure for lodging an application for a Student visa with Permission to Work over the Internet

Ask your education provider to notify DIMIA electronically of your course commencement. Please allow an hour for the transfer of this message into the DIMIA system.

Make your online application on the department website http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/students.htm. Note: you will need access to a credit card to apply online.

Follow the prompts to complete the online application form for Permission to Work

After being granted Permission to Work, students will need to attend the nearest DIMIA office to have a visa label placed in their passport.

Note: department offices have express lanes for students who have lodged their Permission to Work applications online.

You can check the progress of your application by using the online visa enquiry facility.

Benefits of lodging an application online include:

  • access to express service at DIMIA Office; and students are able to use the Online Visa Enquiry to track progress of their application and confirm their visa status after grant.
  • Students who do not wish to, or can not use the Internet to lodge an application may still lodge a paper application. However, processing times may be longer, particularly during peak processing times.

Australia Immigration Service for International Students

Australian Immigration Services for international students - A huge number of international students from non-English speaking countries come to Australia to study on a Student Visa.

Many have academic certificates in their native language. These documents and any other that are required to be attached to the visa application form must be translated in English by a specialist before it can be attested with the form.

Translation of Documents for Visa Application: A Service Offered by Our Education Counsellors
Visa applications of many Asians and south-East Asians are cancelled because they failed to get their mark-sheets translated in English correctly. They have helplessly searched for a translator – but either they are too costly or don’t have adequate experience in translation. The result is dismal: visa application is rejected; money is unnecessarily spent and time is lost.

You don’t have to worry about getting your credentials translated, as we can do just that – accurately. Some translation cost will be refunded.

In fact, our education agents will help you to accurately fill the visa application form and attach required documents needed for getting a visa. During this process, any translation or interpretation services that are needed will also be provided by our experts.

How it Works
To translate a document, a translator from Australia must be legally recognized by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters. If the translator is outside Australia, he or she can also legally translate. However, translation must be endorsed by the translator. Information such as name, address, contact number, qualifications, and experience in translation must be provided in the endorsement letter.

We can help international students with their translation work. They need to approach us only for visa application formalities and services related to visa application. We perform the following task:

  • Guide you through the entire process
  • Get documents translated from our partners –without the student getting involved with the translator.
  • No payment is levied against this task.
  • Check documents given to us by the student, organize them along with the translated copies, and send them to the visa office.

Whether international students are planning to enter a high school, TAFE, college, or university, our education agents are available to advice students on the education provider they can study and also on the courses that will be useful to them.

Credibility of the Translated Documents
Translated documents must match with the original document and immigration authorities expect accurate documents to sanction visas. We work in partnership with top translators in the industry. As a result, you can be certain that the documents will be translated perfectly.
