Visa conditions are the rules of your visa that are set by the Australian Government. It is important that you understand your visa conditions, as the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) may cancel your visa if you breach them.
Visitor visa (Subclass 600)
With this visa you can:
- visit family or friends
- be here as a tourist, for a cruise, or for purposes other than business or medical treatment
However, not many people understand their obligations and their visa conditions. It leads to visa cancellation right after they arrive in Australia
In this video, this man could not prove that he is a genuine visitor. Thus, his visa was cancelled on the spot.
If you hold a visitor visa, you must
- intend to come to Australia to visit only
- have enough money for your stay in Australia
- not work in Australia
- you must be outside Australia when you apply and when we decide your visa
If your visa is cancelled
Cancellation of your visa might also bar you from making further visa applications or prevent you from being granted certain visas to travel to, enter or stay in Australia .
Refused or cancelled visa due to concerns about your character
If you have had a visa refused or cancelled on character grounds since you last arrived in Australia the only visa you can apply for is a Protection visa.
If you are removed from Australia on character grounds, you may have difficulty satisfying the character test when applying for another visa to re-enter Australia.
