Hi All, I applied for Temporary visa 485 graduate subclass on 21st September 20. Its been more than 9 months but there has been no activity on my application. I am currently on bridging visa A and in process of getting it converted to bridging visa B and applying for exemption to travel to India on compassionate and caring grounds. Given situation in India and limited return flights, it is hard to determine that I would be able to return to Australia in less than 3 months and it seems that AU government is more lenient in giving exemptions for 3 months+ return window. As per Immi website, BVB can be applied\reapplied only when in Australia and it is recommended that it is for less than 3 months duration. I am stuck in dilemma, to increase possibility of getting an exemption I need more than 3 months of BVB but AU immigration allows BVB for less than 3 months and it can be applied when in AU. Please help me and suggest how I can travel to India to take care of my family and still be able to come back to Australia in case of any delays(3months +).
Hi, My family and I were granted our visas (189 for me) almost 2 years ago, and we had planned on emigrating at the start of 2021 from the UK to Australia. However, due to Corona Virus and travel restrictions in place does anybody know if you can still travel to Australia or must you have an exemption to be able to enter? I am trying to work out our timeline for moving and could push back the move till Summer 2021, however, I am still uncertain whether we would be allowed in unless I can secure a Travel Exemption. My working visa is based on me working as a Civil Engineer. I have researched the immigration website and can't find any clear answers or contact details so that I can ask the question. Furthermore, we need to have moved to Australia by October 2021 so that we can ensure we have lived in Australia for 2 out of the 5 years the visa is valid so we can more easily apply for a resident return visa after that date, hence why I am concerned about how our planned move to Australia will go now. I'd be grateful for any advice if anybody else is in a similar position and has found the answers I was unable to. Many thanks, Sarah
