About Me

The lucky country

Australia really is a lucky country. We don't have wars, famine or civil unrest. The weather is pleasant (most of the time) and there is plenty of space. No wonder so many people want to live here! I help people who have come from less calm places gain residency in Australia so they don't have to put themselves or their families at risk. Sometimes it's tricky to make the cases work, but at least we have defined processes and legal channels we can work through. It's just another reason I'm glad to live and work in the Australian immigration system.

Top Secrets of Increasing Your Chances of Getting a Visitor Visa in Australia

The Australian Department of Home Affairs receives many visitor visa applications every year. Some are successful, while many others are rejected. Most of the rejected applications are denied mainly due to ineligibility or fraud. There are some which are denied due to misunderstandings, silly mistakes and inconsistencies. Tourist visa application can at times be a complex and demanding process, and it is vital for someone applying to get it right from the start. Here are some of the top secrets that will help you ensure your visitor visa application is successful.

Carry Out In-Depth Research

With the internet, everything is just a click away. In case there is something related to visa requirements that is not clear, then you can always do research on the internet. All information about the visitor visa application processes and requirements are on the internet.

Ensure You Submit All the Required Documents

Having all the documents submitted is important for ensuring that your visa application is approved. For instance, in case you are an employee, you will have to submit your employment certificate and bank statement. The documents should prove that you are gainfully employed and will help negate any type of presumption that you intend to work in Australia on your visitor visa.

Never Submit a Fake Document

Never attempt to submit a fake document. Fraud is a major no-no in any embassy, especially when it comes to visa applications. It will not only cause automatic visa rejection but it can easily get you blacklisted. Almost all governments consider it a crime.

Ensure You Get an Affidavit for Support

Do you lack enough money in your account? Then you should consider getting an affidavit of support. The document will attest that the signatory will cater to your hotel flight and day-to-day expenses.  You can have your parents, employer, friend or relative as your signatory. When submitting such an affidavit, you will need to accompany it with your sponsor's bank statement.

Proof That You Won't Do Anything Illegal

You need to show the consulate that you will never engage in any illegal business in their country, deplete their resources or go against their laws. Embassies want to avoid giving a visa to someone who will do these things, which is why they have a tedious visa application process.
