Exclamation Onshore Visa 600 extension

Anyone have a visa extension denied or have the 8503 condition added? I am currently on an ETA Business Visa, but am coming upon my 3 month window. This would be my 2nd trip out of Australia, so 3rd entry when I would come back. Don't know if I should take the chance to apply for an extension, or just do the trip to Bali. I need to decide asap.

I plan to apply for my pr visa once the skills assessment is complete. So, I need the extra time to allow for the processing. I'm just not sure which option is better. I would like to apply for the extension, but I'm afraid that it would be denied, or that I would have the No Further Stay added to it. Also, what could I add to it to explain the reasons for the extension?

Advice? What is everyone's experience with this? Starting to freak out a bit here. Thanks.

Either option has its own risks, although going offshore and coming back on your current ETA might be the safest way. There really is no way to predict the outcome of either option. As for other people's experience: what may work for one person, may not necessarily work for someone else.

Thank you, Nick. I am thinking that I will just take the trip to Bali, and print out email interactions showing that I have been actively looking into teaching here (emails from teaching employment agent, my submitted skills assessment application, etc.). I didn't even get questioned at all when I came in the past 2 times, nor was I held up at customs at all. So, would probably be my safest bet. I have to take a trip back to the US in June anyway, and my eta visa will be expiring in June. Hopefully, I'll have been able to apply for my perm visa by then...though I'm not going to hold my breath as everything moves slowly here.

Business Stream visitor visa is for a year usually with 3 months stay maximum at a time. Exit and when you return, your skills assessment would have been decided and you'd be able to submit either your EOI(Expression of Interest) or ENS/RSMS visa application. With EOI, you have to wait for ITA (Invitation to apply). When you apply for another visa while holding a business stream visa, you'll be granted a Bridging visa (BVA) which will allow you to stay until your visa application is decided.

It is best to play it safe. Were you planning on applying onshore, so you'd be able to stay on a bridging visa?

Hi Gloria,

Yes, my business visitor visa has 3 month maximum stays and doesn't expire until the end of June 2016. The skills assessment takes up to 10 weeks to do, which is what I am concerned with. I am going to take a quick trip to Bali to reset the 3 month window. I'm just hoping that I can get the invitation and lodge my 189 skilled visa before the end of the next 3 month window is up.

Yes, that is what I am doing. Submitting the skills assessment this week (tomorrow or Thursday). Then once that is done, EOI, invitation and then 189 skilled visa application. Hopefully before I have to leave again!

Just an update for me. I took a quick birthday trip to Bali on my ETA business visa. Had no issues coming back into Australia. I was waived to go through the automated passport/visa check stands and walked right through with no issues. Thanks for the advice! Was much easier to do the quick Bali trip.

Hi, can anyone help with our situation please?? We have been in Australia for 8 months now, we were originally on a 3 month visa and then we paid for an extension and now this 600 visitors visa runs out on 6th June 2016, so not long!!! We are in the process of getting our skills assessed to put in for an EOI for a 189 PR visa but can't see us being able to do this before our visa runs out. So my question is this.....
Would we be able to go to Bali for daytrip and apply for a 3month visa again?? We were just going to extend again but just read on here it will be over $1000 per person and we are a family of 4 !!
Any advice would be gratefully received
