Some applicants may have their applications under "PENDING" case and have to wait between 12-24hrs for approval. This is a common issue.

You can use it to enter Australia many times within the VISA validity date.
Example : Apply on 10Apr2017, it will expires on 10Apr2018.

Our Suggestion : Apply the Australia VISA 3-4 weeks before departure.
In the event the Australia VISA is rejected, it may takes up to 14 working days to process the Visa at the Australia VISA Application Centre (Additional fee may be required).

NO CRIMINAL record doesn't mean your Visa will be approved.
There are many Ridiculous Reasons for the Visa rejection. You will not believe it.

9) What if my Australia Visa application is rejected by the Australia Government?
You have to visit the nearest Australia Visa Application Centre in your Country to check on the VISA status.
Please enquiry with the Australia VISA Application Centre whether additional payment is required.
NO Reason will be given for any VISA Rejection.
You have to contact the Australia Visa Application Centre directly for more information.

10) Why am I not able to process Online Internet Flight Check-in or those Check-in Kiosk (look like ATM Machine) at Changi Airport?

The Airlines Check-in system prompt me that I am not holding Australia Visa?
Below are the COMMON Examples.

The Names on the Australia Visa and the air-ticket names does not MATCH with each other. Look at the below Three (3) examples

Australia Visa Name
Surname : Lim
Given Name : Kuax Huax James
Air-ticket Name (Example 1)
Surname : Lim
Given Name : James Kuax Huax - ("James" placed on the wrong side)
Air-ticket Name (Example 2)
Surname : Lim
Given Name : James - (without given Name)
Air-ticket Name (Example 3)
Surname : Lim
Given Name : KuaxHuaxJames - (No spacing)

If the above scenario happen to you, you can ONLY proceed to the Common Check-in Counters at the Airport

DO NOT PM or POST Questions (we are seldom online) us for faster response
Please do not QUOTE MY POST. Thanks.....
