Still waiting for visa please help

Recommended Posts

Hi thanks for reading,


my boyfriend and I have both applied for working holiday visas and his arrived within 48 hours as it should. It has been 10 days and I still have not received mine. It says online 90% should be done within 48 hours. I am just wondering if anyone else has been in the situation where they have been waiting for it to arrive and have entered austrailia on a different visa whilst waiting for their working holiday visa to be approved and if so how did they do it. I have found it very difficult to find a definitive answer online and would be extremely gratefull if someone could help!


many thanks guys!

Sounds like you've fallen under the 10% that don't get their visas quickly and I'm afraid that apart from sending an enquiry, there's nothing you can do but wait.

Working Holiday visas can only be granted offshore. If you were to come to Australia on a different visa and are onshore when it is granted, it will cancel the visa you entered on (so you'll be in Australia without a visa) AND will itself be cancelled. A VERY BAD IDEA!


Good luck! I'm sure it will come soon.

Well you are either the 10% or you might have missed the email, have you checked spam folders?
