Sure, every year, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) in accepts thousands of Australian visa application from Singapore and all over the world, especially for skilled migration programme. Some receive positive outcome, while some cases will be rejected.
Applications with innocent mistakes, inconsistencies in the information and misunderstanding with the criteria, will certainly be denied. And just because you were denied once, doesn’t mean you can easily lodge application again in the future. To avoid wasting thousands of dollars and preventing you from getting your Australian visa, you might want to consider the following advice below:
Every Piece of Evidence is the Key
Any visa application will require many substantial pieces of evidence; work experiences have to be demonstrated for the skilled visa, acquired assets must be collated for business visas, and relationships have to be proven for partner or family visa. If you have worked 5 years for the past 10 years, for example, provide the certificate of employment or reference letters. Immigration authorities don’t depend solely on your verbal declarations, thus all supporting documents must be verifiable to not get any interrogation from the case officer regarding your application.
Consistency is all that matters
Take your application as if the judiciary is investigating you — you will need to be consistent in providing necessary information. Immigration authorities will conduct cross-checking of all your submitted documents. Inconsistency, be it accidental or innocent, can cost you money, delays in the application, and refusal for your future applications. Consistency and honesty go hand-in-hand with this matter. Not disclosing any important information, or disclosing non-verifiable information can certainly affect your visa application.
Importance of Migration Agents
Imagine someone assisting you all throughout the application, telling you what needs to be done, giving you the list of the documents to be submitted. Isn’t it time-saving, stress-free, and more convenient? Migration agents will also provide you upfront, honest, and professional advice on which visa will be applicable for you. Aside from that, they will be representing you to the immigration authorities; they certainly know Australian laws and regulations. Be mindful of companies who are unlawful pretending to have migration agents. Always check the Migration Agent Registration Authority (MARA) website to ensure you are only dealing with registered authorities.
