WHY AN AUSTRALIAN VISA, Why a Work Visa or Student Visa?

 

You cannot enter Australia without a visa. An Australian visa is a permission either given electronically as an ETA or by a label on a passport, placed by an Australian Immigration officer, which permits the bearer of the visa to enter Australia lawfully.

They are essential for lawful entry. Hence it’s important for each person to choose the right visa that’s most suitable to their desired activities, purposes, and duration of stay, including permanent residence to Australia.

Most visas are evidenced with a label in the passport. The visa label provides a summary of the migrant’s status, conditions and length of stay.

Note that a visa is a permission to travel to and enter Australia, and/or to remain in Australia.

As you may expect, there are consequences of being an unlawful non-citizen.

An unlawful non-citizen is any person in Australia who does not hold a visa that is in effect.

The consequences may be detention, deportation and exclusion periods imposed either permanent or for up to 3 years for all temporary visa applicants. These would include visitors, working holiday makers, students and temporary business applicants.
