I've heard that some Chinese guys whose visa had expired are now staying in the country and working illegally, but you have to admit they are workforce as well. You go to a Chinese shop on sunday, enjoy your shopping ,and they serve you, should they be granted a visa?...in order to serve you legally?

Simple answer is there's a process for all visa applications and you can work it out from there re encouraging an illegal workforce.

Guy at the immi informed me that due to my over stay in australia, I cannot apply for any temporary visas (study,work,tourism etc.etc.) for australia for next 3 years. I asked him, if this rule applies to only temporary visas or it applies to temporary as well as permanent visas. I asked him this question specifically because I am eligible to apply for permanant residency visa for australia (offshore) because I have completed my bacholar's degree programme from an australian university.The guy at the immi counter told me that 'exculsion period rule' only applies to temporary visas and doesnt apply to permanent visas and I can still apply for my permanent residency visa for australia anytime i want.
When I reached at airport, immigration guy at the airport confirmed with me about the '3 years exclusion period'. One thing that worried me was that the guy at the immi counter at airport said that the '3 years exclusion period rule' applies to all kinds of visa application, including temporary as well as permanent visas. This is my query here today if anyone knows the real answer. My question is that due to my over-stay in australia, since 3-years exclusion period rule applies; does it apply to only temporary visa applications or it applies to all sorts of visas application. Please help me out if possible. Kind regards.

I CAN'T IMAGINE there is some one who is in the same boat with me!!!
my case is exactly like yours, however i lodged my application via immigration agent in september 2008. but now i am really anxious about it. because i am really concerned if my overstay would affect the decision process for my permanent visa.
i lodged 176 nominated accountant.
immi guy and the airport guy said that it won't affect my application but still they're not my CO. therefore atm i am really anxious.
my agent said it wouldn't affect my application, but until i got my visa i can barely contain my emotion at the moment

feel free to share info with me.

What you both need remember is PR is not temporary. Therefore, the DIAC will assess you on PR based on whether you have the skills to work, can support yourself etc. If you apply for a temporary visa, of course they're going to reject you. And even after the exclusion period you will instantly be red flagged and your application would be met by a fierce case officer who will go through it in finite detail.

As long as you meet the criteria needed for a PR visa, you will not run into any problems.

This I believe is the key issue, whether or not they are genuine refugees. I have had the pleasure of working with refugees who have come from terrible circumstances, and on the other side of the coin I am frequently called by people in places like Sri Lanka and Indonesia who do not have the skills to enter Australia legally and blatantly ask for advice how to get here without a visa.

Unfortunately the Labor government now is building holding facilities on the mainland, which will mean the majority of boat people will be approved as they're already here.

I for one do not support illegal immigrants. I do support refugees. Our current system does not allow to distinguish the two very well. Rather than spending millions on increase holding capacities for detention centres, there needs to be more money spent on processes to sort the refugees from the illegals.
