Visit visa extension while waiting for 309 grant

Hi All,

I have applied on 309 from India and now i am on my tourist visa 600(granted for 6 months) in Australia . My tourist is about to expire on 30 May 2018. i have no 8503 condition in my 600 and trying to extend my visitor visa.

Wonder how early can i apply for an extension of tourist visa. since there is about 45 days left and the processing time can take more than 30 days . can i reapply now ?

Kindly advise

thanks you all

You wont be able to extend on the online Immiaccount (if you have an open visa already) but you have to download form 1419 (physical form for Tourist stream Visitors Visa application) from the Home Affairs website and then follow their advice on which office to send it to.

What makes you say that ? Of course you can apply online for another visitor visa while in Australia.

Onshore applications are sometimes processed very fast, so you don't want to apply too early.

You could also consider your stay period and last entry date if that's an option for you. A lot of people don't realize that you can enter before the last entry date and still get the entire stay period, assuming you have a visa that allows it (i.e., multiple entry).

(I dont have a no further stay rule)

Upon calling the Brisbane Immigration office, they say you must fill in the form to apply for extensions under Tourist stream 600 visitor visa - cant do it online.

How odd, I have never come across this. Even the Department web-site states that :"In Australia, all passport holders can apply online for a Visitor visa extension".

I have done this several times for clients who still had a valid tourist visa. I have a feeling it might have to do something with the fact that you have a partner visa application in the system.

It could be. My Partner visa recently went from "Received" to "Initial Assessment" so could be why not. But reading on here, it might still take time to process and if I cant extend from 2nd May until a decision is made (whenever that may be!) then I might be stuck. So have done the physical form now and sent it in today, will wait to see!
