Due to current COVID restrictions for second wave prevailing worldwide, visa application to various countries is not permitted. However, if you have travelled to any country, mainly in Australia and want to stay there due to this travel restriction, you can apply for an extension visa to extend your stay. This is applicable if you want to extend your stay in Australia more than your current visa permits. You have to apply for another visa of the same kind or different for an Australian Immigration visa in Cobden

What do you understand by Visitor Visa Subclass 600

This visa helps you arrive in Australia for travel purposes or as a business visitor or medical treatment services for about 3, 6, to 12 months. Applicants are permitted to enter only once with the help of this visa. If you want to extend this visa, you have to apply for another new visa or return to your own country and then again return to Australia. You can travel to and from Australia several times as long you want until your current visa is valid, but the time you are spending in Australia should not exceed the period granted in your visa.

Six Types of Visitor Immigration Visa (Subclass 600)-

  • Tourist Stream (Inside Australia)
  • Tourist Stream (Outside Australia)
  • Sponsored family stream
  • Business visitor stream
  • Approved Destination Status stream
  • Frequent traveller stream

The Requirements for Subclass 600 Visa

You can get this visitor visa when you are travelling to Australia if you have-

  • Business visitor activities
  • You want to travel as a visitor 
  • You are visiting a family
  • You are going on a tour with a registered agent.

If you are currently in Australia, you can apply for a tourist visa stream when you already have a valid visa currently that does not have 8503 imposed. However, if you are outside Australia, only a few passport holders can apply for a visa online. If you cannot get a visitor visa online, you can take help from a MARA agent.

How Can You Apply For A Visitor Visa Extension?

 

Suppose you are currently staying in Australia and want to extend your stay in Australia more than your current Australian immigration visa in Cobden permits you. In that case, you have to again apply for a visa of the same kind or different. If you have 8503 imposed on your visitor visa and extend your stay, you can request a waiver in this case.

 

If you want to visit Australia now, you have to consult with a MARA licensed agent working for Aussie Visa Services, one of the trusted agencies that offer visa services to people who want to move to Australia or extend their stay.
