jessicamc93 posted a topic in Working Holiday VisasHey, I was wondering could anyone help me as I am really stressing over my second year working holiday visa. I applied for my second year working holiday visa at the end of November, with my first year expiring in December, and received an email today saying they require more information, so therefore my application is being investigated. I completed my regional work from the 29th of may to the 29th of September so 4 months all in. The post code and work completed are fine as I was working as a labourer in a regional area. It is the hours I am worried about, I worked between 4-6 days a week, however some days I only worked as little as 5 hours. On the Australian government website it states "One full day of work is defined as having worked the minimum number of hours considered to be a standard day by the particular industry in which the applicant is employed."I'm not even sure what the minimum hours for construction are as I can't find the information online. Has anyone been investigated and had a similar experience or able to provide me with any advice? My payslips state the hours worked in a two week period and not the amount of hours work on any given day. If anyone can offer any help it would be much appreciated, thanks in advance
Cerberus1 posted a topic in Visa ChatFollowing the transmission of ABC's Four Corners program earlier this month, which aired allegations that criminal gangs lure women to Australia and then force them into slavery in Sydney and Melbourne brothels. Australia's student visa program will be investigated following allegations that women entering Australia on student visas are being forced into the sex industry. It said that if they refuse, the women are beaten and their families are threatened. The Immigration Department routinely carries out compliance operations in the sex industry with the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The operations are designed to ensure brothel owners are not employing foreign nationals working without a valid visa. But Immigration Minister Chris Bowen says following this month's "particularly serious and disturbing allegations", a thorough analysis will be done. "Allegations of illegal work and the exploitation of workers in any industry by unscrupulous employers or migration agents are taken very seriously," he said in a statement. Mr Bowen says if any links to human trafficking are found they will be referred to the AFP for further action.
The employer has submitted application for employer sponsorship last Aug. After 9 month's waiting, it was investigaed suddenly. The interview of employer was not good and they were asked to submitted more documents later on. Now no reply from case officer. Unfortunately, I have submitted 121 visa application in May due to my IELTs will overdue. Now, my question is that: 1-Supposing the employer sponsership failed, I need to withdraw the visa application, is it a kind of visa refuse case and will be negative record for me? 2-Does anyone has similiar experience, after submission of more documents, the case officer will give decision very soon or it will be delayed for certian period? I am worry about it, I want to have a conclusion soon after so long waiting time and I need to find further solution on it if 121 failed. Thanks for your help in advance.
