Waivers of Re-Entry Bans

In the event that you overstayed on a prior visa while in Australia, you are automatically subject to three year exclusionary ban on re-entering the country on any temporary visa unless the ban is waived. An exclusionary ban will only be waived where the Department is satisfied that there are compassionate or compelling circumstances that affect the interests of an Australian citizen or permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen. The Department must be satisfied that there is a strong reason to justify granting a visa before the end of the re-entry ban.

If you are subject to a re-entry ban, Marino Law’s immigration lawyers can help you in seeking to have the ban waived through the preparation of detailed legal submissions addressing all relevant factors which are then considered by the Department upon application for a further visa.
