Subclass 101 - change to Subclass 802?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been putting off applying for my daughters visa(Subcalss 101 Offshore) due to the long timeline. I've been trying to get a job from here and been hoping that we'd be able to go sooner and apply from Aus(Subclass 802 Onshore) instead...

 

My question is - can I apply for Subcalss 101 Offshore and change it to Subclass 802 Onshore should I be lucky enough to gain employment from here whilst we're waiting for the Visa?

 

Your help is appreciated as always!

Steve.

Hi Steve

 

We have applied for a 101 visa for our daughter. We don't expect this to be granted until Christmas time but are thinking of going out there October time. I mentioned to the CO how we went about this and the reply was to get our daughter a tourist visa and he would let us know when the visa would be granted and when to leave the country (go to Bali, NZ) for the visa to be granted. He said we would need to leave (go offshore) for 3 days to give them enough time to issue the visa grant. I don't think you can change the visa from offshore to onshore.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks Maria, I understand why your CO has advised you in that way, makes sense.

If anyone has any other info on "changing 1010 to 802" after application I'd appreciate it?

Steve.
