Temporary Activity Visa 408 (Covid 19) HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Any help appreciated. 

Applied for this visa in July - 28 days before my 417 visa had expired as I was offered a job in one of the critical sectors (Agriculture) Even though I completed my 88 days regional work I was unable to apply for a second year due to already being 31. 

Since Aug 3rd I have been on a bridging visa.  After 4 weeks I had an email asking for extra information, a police clearance. I attached this to the application and this morning received a visa grant notification. The visa has only been granted until 30th Nov 2020. In the application I stated the length of employment to be from Oct 2020 to Jan/Feb 2021.


Can anyone offer any advise on why I would have been granted such a short term on this visa when the employment timeline was clearly stated in the application. I have called up and spoken to a lady that said once the decision has been made there is nothing you can do but apply for another visa when it's due to expire - but what are my options!? My employer needs me for the full harvest season and is unlikely to take me on now my visa isn't for the full amount of time!!


Thank you!
