Hi!

My name is Jill, I'm 26 years old living in the Philippines,

I was granted my first visa the visitor subclass 600 I think.

So here goes.

I want to apply for a new visa, I just would like to ask will it be the same process as my first visa.

Has anyone ever applied twice for a tourist visa?

My mom is currently studying at the University of Sydney and she wants me to stay with her for a few months.

Any tips or suggestions please?

A 2nd visa should be straightforward, same as the first. With my wife, her first visa took 4 weeks and was valid for 3 months, but her second visa took 5 weeks and was valid for 12 months.

I know various people from the Philippines that had relatives come over on subsequent visas. Some came over every year for a few weeks.

The problem arises when either applicant or sponsor is involved in any overstay situations.

on your wife's 12 month stay, is it a multiple entry?
They can vary depending on the Case Officer.

Most common seem to be.

3 month visa - 3 month stay - single entry
3 month visa - 3 month stay - multiple entry
6 month visa - 3 month stay - single entry
6 month visa - 3 month stay - multiple entry
12 month visa - 12 month stay - single entry
12 month visa - 3 month stay - multiple entry

There are others also, we got a 12 month multiple entry, no set stay period but it was 12 months from day of grant, not date of entry.

Interestingly we only requested 6 month multi entry.

This is my situation: I am travelling to Australia with my son, AU citizen by descent, this will be my son's first entry to Australia. It will cost me much airfare to exit and then re enter Australia with my son every 3 months because no one will look after him if I leave him so I have to take him with me everytime I exit.

because I applied for a 3 month stay but I was given a 12month visa -3 month stay- multiple entry. So does it mean I have to leave Australia every 3 months? Are there cases wherein the multiple entry can be changed to single entry if requested?

thanks

You need to go offshore every 3 months, you can not extend the stay period.

You can apply for a new visa if your current visa DOES NOT have the No Further Stay condition attached.

But there is no guarantee it would be approved or for how long it would be granted.

Hers was the 12 month stay from date of each arrival, with multiple entry.

No need to leave every 3 months.
