Many people visit Australia as a tourist and enjoy a longer stay as per their wishes. The tourist or visitor visa subclass 600 has a tenure of 3 to 6 months, which means you can stay as a sightseer without taking any employment there. Even if the visitor visa subclass 600 is available for three months, it can be extended for a longer time period.

Follow these effective ways to get your tourist visa extended during your stay in Australia:

Check the Terms and Conditions of Your Visa

Prior to everything, you need to know all the details of your current visitor visa, and find out the following details:

  • The expiry date of your Visa
  • The terms and conditions of your Australian Visa
  • Are there any conditions present in my Visa that forbids you to enrol for a new visa

You can check the conditions of many visas easily from online websites or from a certified migration agent in Sydney. If you need to check your status to get an extension on your Australian visitor visa, then you can do it by checking an ETA service respectively. However, if your visa condition forbids you to stay more than the tenure, then you need to leave the country before your Visa expires. In this case, you can apply for a new visitor visa once you have reached Australia, but you cannot extend your present Visa.

Explore the Options of Your Visa

After you have determined that you are allowed to apply for another visa in Australia, you can go through the different visa options and apply for Visa before your present visitor visa expires. In addition, some visas can serve as ways for other visas, which means that the Visa you have currently can bring in opportunities that people outside of Australia will not have access to. If this does not happen in your case, then you can research other visa options available to you, which allow you to stay for the time you require and you can fulfil all your needs.

However, if you apply for a new tourist visa in Australia before the expiry of your current Visa, then you will most likely issue with a bridging visa A. This is a temporary visa that does not allow you to stay in Australia when a decision is being made for your new application.

Also, you must not leave Australia when you have been issued with a bridging visa A. If you do so, then your bridging visa will be ceased and will not be returned until and unless you have a new visa. However, if there is an emergency and you need to leave Australia soon, then you can apply for a bridging visa B, which will allow you to re-enter Australia.

Last Verdict!

Thus, these are the effective ways you can opt for visitor visa subclass 600 extension. Furthermore, it is highly recommended for you to hire a certified migration agent to know about the extension in details as well as extend your Visa more quickly with the professional’s help.
