As the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to cripple nations around the world, recent weeks have shown us that Australia is not yet through this challenging time.
The Australian government has moved to restrict inbound passenger numbers to Australia. With limited inbound passengers, some airlines are unable to fly into Australia leading to many outbound flights being cancelled as the inbound aircraft is not able to arrive. Some airlines have also determined it is not financially viable for them to continue the flight route with limited seats on the inbound flight.
The flow on effect of this has already been seen by many visa holders. Their flights to leave Australia have been cancelled and they are ‘stuck’ in Australia.
If your visa expiry is approaching and you have a scheduled flight – please monitor the situation with your airline closely. If your flight is cancelled – get in touch with us ASAP to arrange for an urgent visa extension.
DO NOT LET YOUR VISA EXPIRE.
If you go unlawful, it can be very difficult to resolve your situation or may make it difficult for you to obtain further visas for Australia.
Stay lawful – contact Milestone today to assist with your visa extension during the COVID-19 pandemic.
