In some cases you are able to include a special submission with your application addressing an issue that would otherwise be a basis for refusing your visa. In other cases the Australian Government may request more information or ask you to give a formal explanation of an event that would otherwise cause your application to be refused or a visa cancelled.
If this occurs, you can prepare a special response addressing the issues of concern.
This can include the following situations:
In these cases it is possible to make a special submission explaining your circumstances that then allows the Australian Government to make a decision to grant a visa it must otherwise refuse.
If any of these situations occur we advise you to seek legal advice immediately.
The criteria for making a successful waiver application often require there to be “compelling and / or compassionate” circumstances affecting you or an Australian permanent resident or citizen.
There are often ways to respond to what might appear to be the most difficult of situations. This involves clarifying the facts and the law for the Australian Government in a way that allows the case officer to make the decision you want. VisAustralia is expert at understanding and analysing your circumstances and preparing submissions likely to be successful.
If any of these issues affect you we invite you to contact our Australian office immediately.
