Smile Can I fill two visas?


My goal is to get a full visa, but my question is whether I can apply for more than one visa?

I plan to visit Australia in december on a tourist visa going for just a months holiday, but van I also apply for a full visa ( to get the ball rolling as it takes time) also as I apply for the tourist one?

Is this possible or does it just make the process confusing?

I haven't seen this posted before, so sorry if I am repeating a previous discussion.

Many thanks for any advice.

You can apply for two visas Jess, and hold a tourist visa whilst a permanent skilled or family visa is being processed.
You could apply for an ETA or eVisa online if from an eligible country for your months visa and the other will be processed separately.

That's fantastic news, a huge weight from my mind.

Even one of those visa agencies didn't seem to know the answer!

Many thanks!
