problem with multi visa applications??

In a previous post I advised I was going for a 12 month tourist application, probably end of this year, I have already been to Australia in march for 3 weeks, and my circumstances have changed and I am now also able to go in September for 3 months both of these visits on ETAs, would alarm bells start to ring at visa office if I came back in November and immeadiately applied for a 12 month visa, I have the funds available to support myself during that time, just dont want to make what is already a complicated process more complicated.

Thanks to anyone who answers or has any views.

Any chance that you might want to save yourself the extra to and fro trip and just get your 12 month visa for travel in September and stay on.
If you have the funds to do what you plan and a reason for travelling here in September and then returning home before travelling again, it should be OK.

I would sugest waiting until you have been here in Australia for about 2 months then applying. DIAC can grant you up to 12 months from the date of your last entry, if you meet all the criteria IE reason for staying, funds to live here without working etc.

Cheers

Chris

Thanks, I had already booked a flight for September for a week..(believe it or not!) but I now find I will be redundant so not limited to the week, hence I can now stay longer, I phoned the airline and it seems I cna extend for a charge of about £75 intended coming back in November after making sure the move is exactly what I want (defacto visa stil in the plan) then go for my 12 months, I appreciate it may well have the endorsement stopping from stayng longer so I will have to return again to UK and apply for defacto, I have a number of friendsin Australia so my reason for visiting is genuine, just have to hope "Mr Government" looks kindly on my application.

Thanks for your input and your other comments on various other peoples questions as it has helped me understand the whole process better.

Unless you really need to return to the UK, you may still not need to and there's a few different options:
. Either come on the ETA and apply for a tourist visa while here or as I say apply for the tourist visa in first place,
[ Yes, tourist visas can have a No Further Stay condition applied ] but if you do decide to stay on re the defacto and get an application ready to go, you could do that with a trip to NZ and lodge there [ cheaper ] or get an ETA to return from there.

I've seen reports from somepeople that the 12 month tourist visas can in fact be used for near 2 years as they can be issued with a latest entry date 12 months from issue and then a validity of 12 months from latest entry.

. One advantage of coming on an ETA is that if you want to see what work options may be and find an Employer Sponsor, you could always apply whilst on an ETA.

In the context of coming and staying, if you have a refundable flight [ always some loss ] have you looked at savings possible with a one way flight via the likes of Welcome to AirAsia.com, The World's Best Low-Cost Airline ex Stansted in UK.
If a return then seems the way of the future, a one way back will also be cheap enough.

Getting slightly off topic, if that Volcano keeps spewing, maybe you could be looking at the Trans Siberian/China and training to HK, BK or Singapore etc., making for an interesting journey anyway!
