Ministerial Intervention Help Please

Hi Everyone,

Here is my situation so far I will try keep it as short as possible!

I migrated to Australia in 2010 on a WHV completed year one & two. In that time my family migrated to Australia (my step dad being Australian Citizen). My mother and sister where put on the application for PR but I could not as I already turned 18.

When my WHV 2 was about to finish I lodged an application for Remaining Relative Subclass 835 to remain in Australia with my family. Bridging visa was granted and i remained in Australia until my grandmother became ill (my only near relative in Ireland). My Mother & I returned to Ireland where I decided to stay on and be close to my grandmother as my mother needed to return to Australia due to family and work commitments.

After a few months in Ireland my BVB ceased and i remained in Ireland until my Grandmother passed away.

Whilst this was all happening DIAC rejected my application and it was referred to MRT - they could not make a favorable answer and they then referred it to the Ministerial Intervention Team.

It has now been with the Ministerial Intervention team for over 10 months.

I am looking to move back to Australia to be with my family as I have nobody anywhere else.

I lodged an ETA visa on the day I flew out of Ireland on the hope it would be processed instantly but on my stopover in Bangkok it came back as a decline with an answer from the DIAC stating that I am returning to stay with my family until such time my Ministerial Intervention case is seen and not to be a tourist.

I am now stuck in Bangkok and have tried every possible options to return back to Australia. My parents have contacted every possible department in the DIAC and nobody has any answers only wait for the Ministerial Intervention.

Does anyone have any options on other visas I could return on or contact the assistant minister for hope that they intervene in my case?

I am 23 years old

Thank you
Anthony

Sorry to hear about all this. I hope you get it sorted out quickly! The only advice I have, is perhaps your parents can contact their local members and have them apply pressure on the department / minister?

Hope this all gets sorted quickly for you.

You do need lots of help. Australian immigration law is very regulated and very complex, and it sounds like you have not realised that. I suggest that you arrange to consult with an experience migration agent in Australia who can work out what your current situation is and what is the best way forward from here.

You haven't mentioned why your Remaining Relative visa was declined. If it's for a "valid" reason (i.e. you refer to your step-dad. Is your biological father still alive?) then MRT is unlikely to change the outcome.

But you should speak with a migration agent. There are several on the forum who post regularly (including Jeremy Hooper above) who could give you some guidance.
