Extending a visa 600 twice

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

Do you have a Condition 8503 on your current visa? If no you can apply here. However you will be subject to a $700 charge per person for applying for a 2nd temporary visa in Australia. This is on top of the visa application fee. So you are right about the $1000 + charge total.

You may as well spend the $700 each on a trip to Bali and enjoy some sunshine and Balinese hospitality.

Normally the Department's policy is no more than 12 months in any 18 month period, so you should be OK. You can apply for the eVisitor visa (651) online once you leave the country and it is free.

Thank You Jeremy, that's great, I'll start looking at flights to Bali then, it looks beautiful so I'd rather do that than spend even more on visas!

We have one more problem though, which I am kicking myself for as I should have realised sooner... mine and my son's passports have less than six months left on them.
If I send them off to renew them, I run the risk of them not arriving before the date our visa is up on June 6th.
Any Advice please?? TIA
