7) When should I apply for the Australia VISA
Australia VISA application is almost instant approval.
Some applicants may have their application under "PENDING" case and have to wait within 24hrs for the update. This is a common issue during Visa application.

Each VISA is valid for 1 year (Multiple entry) from the date of application.
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 other Reasons for the Visa rejection. You will not believe it.

8) 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

9) Once the Australia Visa is Approved, can I change the Passport details?
NO AMENDMENT is allow.
This is Australia Immigration Rules. Must apply a NEW Visa.
You will need to pay additional fee @ SGD$5 (RM$15) to process a NEW Visa.
(eg. SGD$7 + SGD$5 = SGD$12 for this applicant)

If you have change a NEW Passport, you must also apply a NEW Australia Visa @ SGD$7 (RM$22).
You are NOT ALLOW to use the previous Visa even though it may still be valid.

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
