Hi everyone, I once overstayed my student visa in Sydney for 6 months due to pure carelessness, I have forgotten to renew my student visa when I transferred universities. Once I realised this, I immediately went to Immigration and they issued me a Bridging Visa E(BVE). So I went back to my country, applied for a new student visa, and tried my best to waive my 3 year re-entry ban. I wrote a statement letter to Department of Home affairs stating the reason why I overstayed and left my visa to expire. Miraculously, my student visa was granted after 2 months of waiting. So I was allowed to go back to Australia to continue my studies. So I am now back in sydney to finish my degree. I have 2 more semesters left, and I am planning to apply for a temporary graduate visa after I complete my degree. Under normal condition, I know that this visa should not be difficult to obtain. However, with my history of bridging visa E, what are the chances of a TR visa to be granted? Would it be possible that they will refuse due to my previous history? Will BVE history affect my chances of obtaining a permanent resident too? Many thanks.
