Post Subclass 500

Please advice !
I visited South Africa sometimes in 2014 and overstayed my tourist visa
by 4 weeks. I was fined some amount of money and I paid this fine but got a stamp on my passport. By 2015, I returned to South a Africa to commence my MSc studies under student visa. I have returned to my home country Nigeria after completion of my study but returned back for graduation and later procured a critical skill visa in South Africa. I have also procured Swaziland tourist visa. Now, I intend to apply for Australian study visa to commence my PhD, will my past history of overstay affects my Australian visa application?
Thank you

It may. However, it is essential that you declare it. You should write a submission and provide evidence of your subsequent South African visas.

Hello Jeremy,

Can you please tell us how much time these days PhD visas are taking at worst. We are around 10-12 guys who are waiting for PhD visa (all with full scholarship) since 7 months to 1 year. What do you think is the reason of such long delays in processing PhD visas by DIBP? All the guys have previously traveled to other countries as well and have good immigration history as well. Is there something specifically wrong with PhD visas like some law by which Australia does not want any PhD researchers in their country?

I saw your previous posts, you used to say PhD visas can take 6 months. But this group of 10-12 people are all well above that period. What do you think could be the reason? Your experience and advice would be highly appreciated.

Did you apply on your own or through any consultan? it's strange in your case all i have seen in the past people didn't take more than 6 months..well if you see people with master degree gets visa early because they are investing money on australian govt and Phd are mostly sponsored they might be burdon on them
