visitor visa
 
Hi , I am new here and trying to find a place that can help with a question. I have a visitor visa , it is about to expire on feb 4. With the flooding in Brisbane and the immi office closed there i need help figureing out what to do. I will call in the morning but I was wondering ... with the flooding what are my chances of staying in Australia?? Have my application all ready to go in the mail for a further stay visa so I can stay with my partner. Worried they will not let me stay in the wake of the flooding disaster and being so close to my visa expiring..
Help????
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

Hello,

Does your visitor visa has a "no further stay" on the stamp from your passport? Depends a lot of what is your nationality!

The flooding in Brisbane will have little to zero impact for people visiting Australia and unless you are eligible to apply for another visa, you need to abide by the conditions of the visitor visa and overstaying is not looked upon as very good.
Your confirmatory email for the visa should show if you have a No Further Stay condition or not.

Hi , Thanks for the reply.
no it it doesnt have a "no further stay". I am worried tho that at this late in the game they are not goin to approve my further stay visa.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

It depends on what kind of visa you are going to apply for and onshore visitor visas can be granted fairly quickly and in fact the type you have may mean just an extension.
If you are after other than a visitor visa and a longer processing time involved, you get a bridging visa issued when a current visa expires and until any new visa is determined.

Hi , thanks!!!!!!!!!! I am apply for a visitor visa further stay . That is what the immi officer said I needed so I can be here for 12 months. then I can apply for partner visa.
Bridging visa ??? Hopefully I can get that til my other visa goes thru. Just hope I didnt wait to long .... Should have done this weeks ago . then I wouldnt be so stressed now...
thanks for all the help and info!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all. just an update for you on my visa quest..
Called the main office # and talked to someone. Have to email all my info to the emergency email address for the Brisbane office.
Will get that done today .
Will keep you up to date!
Thanks for all the help and support!!!!!!!!!

You may find if you are given a longer term visitor visa to stay here for over 12 months it could then have the No Further Stay condition on it.
If so, that'll then mean you need to travel offshore to submit a partner visa.

Wanderer, what is a longer term visitor visa???
Ok , I dont have a problem being offshore to do a partner visa. From what I have been reading , it is easier to get it if I am back in the USA then if I am here in Australia.
Thank you for all your help!!!!!
