re-applying for a 485 visa

Hello everyone!

This is my first post on this forum; helpful answers will be greatly appreciated.

Today I received a refusal for my application for a 485 visa. The reason being that I did not supply proof of ''English-skills''.

As I completed a IELTS test before I arrived to Australia (almost 4 years ago), and then graduated with a Bachelor of Communication (all courses undertaken in English), I wrongfully assumed I would be OK.

My question is: Can I re-apply for the same visa again if I promptly sit for a new English test?

I know one can only be granted this visa once, but not sure if I can re-apply after refusal.

I also know that this is all my fault, and am now just trying to find the best solution so as to avoid the devastating scenario of having to leave.

Thank you for your time and care!

From what you have posted (unless you hold a substantive visa) to reapply for a 485 it look as as if you would have to leave Australia and re-enter on some other visa in time to satisfy the 6-month condition.

This is not a considered professional opininion.

It might pay you to consult a registered migration agent about your possible strategies.

Only if you still hold an eligible visa and of course meet all the other time-of application requirements.

I constantly get contacted by people who have lodged 485 visas themselves and get a refusal, because they do no meet some of the very basic requirements, like the English language requirement.

The sc. 485 visa can provide a great pathway towards PR and a refusal can destroy all that, so PLEASE, do yourself a favour and get some professional advice, before you lodge the visa application. A good registered migration agent will pick up this type of fatal mistake straight away.

I strongly advise against getting involved with unregistered overseas operators who call themselves "immigration consultants".

You should only use Australian MARA registered migration agents that display a valid Migration Agent Registration Number (MARN).

https://www.mara.gov.au/search-the-r...ration-agents/

A search of the business and their team is not showing any results. On the home page there is a tiny MARA logo, but no MARN, which to me seems to be very misleading . If this business is indeed MARA registered, then their MARN and other credentials should be clearly displayed. They should also provide a link to the MARA Code of Conduct. As it is now they are clearly in breach of the requirements that apply to MARA Registered Migration Agents.

If they are not MARA registered, then they should not pretend to be registered by displaying a MARA logo.

I strongly object to unregistered operators advertising their services on this forum.

"Consultant" that hasn't studied migration law... I wouldn't trust a banker with my money let alone my visa status...

"Ms Nona Bains is a highly qualified professional with a Masters in Accounting & International business as well as Masters in Philosophy in Banking."
