Urgent! 想請問有關係澳洲因不小心而逾期居留之問題!

我係 2008年10月15日取得澳洲既 Working Holiday Visa, 然後係 2008年11月15日到達澳洲. 之後係2009年10月14日離開澳洲返回香港 ( 因為夠期同只可以逗留1年, 所以需要離開澳洲, 再係香港申請另一個visa 再過去澳洲 )

之後我係旅行社申請左ETA, 係2009年10月22日到達澳洲, 由於ETA 只可以逗留 3個月, 所以我係2010年1 月18日返回香港.

但當我出澳洲境果陣問題就來了..佢地話我逾期居留, 我果陣好迷茫同好驚訝, 我同佢地講我係用ETA入境的, 可以逗留3個月, 所以我唔明白點解佢地話我逾期居留, 但佢地話無顯示我係用ETA入境. 之後我問佢咁我應該點做, 佢只係叫我返去同香港既領事館解釋.

之後我返到香港, 第2日即刻打電話去immigration dept. 度問清楚. 佢地話原來我係日期上攪錯左. 我以為係由佢地批左我個 Working Holiday Visa 果日開始計起 1年期, 但原來佢地係由我入澳洲境果日先開始計1年期. 所以當我2009

年10月14日返回香港 ( *以為到期要離開澳洲 )... 再係2009年10月22日返去澳洲果陣時, 佢地仲係用緊我 Working Holiday Visa 既status 入澳洲境. 而我既 Working Holiday Visa 既到期日係就應該係 2009年11月15日.

就係因為係日期上既誤解, 佢地話我依家 3 年內唔可以入境澳洲. 我依家好徬徨.

問題1: 我想請問如果想再返回澳洲, 要有咩野手續?

問題2: 我想請問是不是要寫一封英文既解釋信比高級官員, 如果我想再返回澳洲的話?

問題3: 以我這樣的case, 領事館是否一定不會再批我返回澳洲?

問題4: 如果我真的想再返回澳洲, 請問我應該申請什麼種類既 visa 會比較好, 作為我已經被例入 overstay 既名單...例如 student visa 或者 tourist visa?

問題5: 究竟要點樣寫那封解釋信, 我先有機會再返回澳洲? 定係就算我交上那封解釋信也沒有任何機會返回澳洲呢? 因為我真的無從入手, 我都唔知應該點寫好. 因為聽講如果比左信, 佢地都不接受那些解釋, 即係代表那個是最後決定, 不可以再上訴的, 是否真的嗎?

問題6: 除了寫解釋信外, 還有沒有其他方法解決這個問題?

我現在非常徬徨同擔心3 年內不能入澳洲境.

希望得到大家既寶貴意見同解答, 謝謝大家...萬分感激!!!

Update:

您好 j_hungary002! 首先非常多謝你既詳細回答, 你的協助很有用處對我, 令我有深入的了解在這件事上應該要點做, 謝謝你的幫忙同友善, 本人萬分感激!

問題1: 我想請我要如何"提出申訴", 過程會是怎樣的? 是直接聯絡領事館嗎? 需要很長時間嗎?

問題2: 我是有向旅行社申請ETA 的, 但我一直不知道我的 WHV 仲未過期, ( 佢地話同時間係唔可以申請另一個 visa 的..如果之前那個Visa 仲未到期 ). 所以當我再過番澳洲果陣時, 仲係用緊 WHV 既status. 我亦都知我犯左一個好嚴重既錯失. 所以那個ETA應該係作廢了.

Update 2:

問題3: 我想請問什麼是"compassionate waiver", 我不太明白是什麼來的? 是要如何申請的?

問題4: 我想請問 "pay for a Migration Tribunal" 大約要幾錢的, 是否很貴?

本人好想返過去澳洲的原因, 是因為我臨回來之前已經計劃要再返回澳洲報讀一些課程, 想增值自己同體驗生活, 因為好鐘意澳洲這個地方. 同埋我的男朋友在那邊

I was very thankful for your help, Thank you for being so helpful. Thanks a lot!

Update 3:

您好j_hungary002! 再次多謝你專業既回覆. 謝謝你的幫忙. 萬分感激!

問題1: 我想請問如果以我的case, 你認為我應該申請上訴定抑或申請"Compassionate waiver"會好d, 邊樣會比較有利?

問題2: 我向旅行社申請ETA果陣, 佢地無同我講話我申請不到ETA的, 同埋是旅行社免費幫我做的, 因為我在佢地公司買機票的關係.

問題3:我想請問這個"Compassionate Wavier" 可以做什麼的, 如果持有這個, 可以係澳洲讀書或者工作嗎?

Update 4:

問題4: 我想請問如果求情時, 說出男朋友在澳洲會有幫助嗎? 定抑或說出我男朋友係澳洲..反而不好? ( *他是澳洲人 )

問題5: 我想請問除了解釋我在日期上的錯失外, 我是否要有更多其他的理由才可以令我重返澳洲既機會大多一些呢? 例如...想在澳洲讀書, 體驗生活同埋男朋友在澳洲..等等.

Thank you your time and thank your for your help! Much appreciated!

    You should enquire the Australian Consulate everytime you want to apply a Visa to Australia, i don't want to say this but this is your fault, as you confused the expirary date of your visa. This is not the immigration department fault. So let's discuss how you can get out of this jam...

    問題1: 我想請問如果想再返回澳洲, 要有咩野手續?

    There are 2 ways things can do. 1.) Lodge an administrative review 2.) Apply for a compassionate waiver.

    Chances for you to get a positive review result is not good. You can still agrue that you have a ETA (If you did had 1) And you should not be overstay under Australian law. But grant that or not will be on discretion of the Panel Member.

    You can also apply for a compassionate waiver, if you have reason beyond your control that you need to go back to Australia regardlessof your blacklist status. Seems like you are dired to return, but without knowing why, i cannot answer this further.

    問題2: 我想請問是不是要寫一封英文既解釋信比高級官員, 如果我想再返回澳洲的話?

    You cannot fix this by writing to the consulate. If you want your visa reinstate or your status lift, you need to pay for a Migration Tribunal, and you need to attend an interview with penal member/judge

    問題3: 以我這樣的case, 領事館是否一定不會再批我返回澳洲?

    Umm... i will say 40/60 (40 in your favor)

    問題4: 如果我真的想再返回澳洲, 請問我應該申請什麼種類既 visa 會比較好, 作為我已經被例入 overstay 既名單...例如 student visa 或者 tourist visa?

    You cannot apply ANY Australian Visa (Permanent Residence Visa Included) if you are under overstay blacklist, they will not acceptany of your visa application

    問題 5 :

    Again you cannot fix this by sending letter, you have to attend an interview by review board/penal judge. If the board/judge found a decision against your favor (Mean they did not accept your explaination. You can only appeal to the Australian High Court.

    問題6: 除了寫解釋信外, 還有沒有其他方法解決這個問題?

    Read the above answer....

    One more thing, you seems like you are in need of returning to Australia, it may be a good thing and bad thing to you, you should tell me why you want to return to clear this up a little bit

    問題1: 我想請我要如何"提出申訴", 過程會是怎樣的? 是直接聯絡領事館嗎? 需要很長時間嗎?

    You need to ask the consulate staff to give you the form for either Administration reviewof a visa decision or waiver application. Anyway you fold, you need to ask your local consulate staff.

    2010-02-04 12:48:21 補充:

    問題2: Yeah, the problem is when you apply for ETA when your WHMV is not yet expired, they will either accepted your applicaiton or refund your money (Application not accepted) and on Australian Migration law.

    2010-02-04 12:49:39 補充:

    they will need to notified you your application if they accepted or if they rejected it, so if you claim you have ETA, that mean they accepted your application, not matter if your previous visa is expired.

    2010-02-04 12:49:59 補充:

    (Cont'd) or Not

    2010-02-04 12:51:00 補充:

    Technically if they issued you with a ETA, that will become their mistake, however, if they rejected your ETA application and you didn't know it, that will be on you.

    2010-02-04 12:53:41 補充:

    問題3: 我想請問什麼是"compassionate waiver", 我不太明白是什麼來的? 是要如何申請的?

    Compassionate waiver is a waiver for people who cannot enter to waive that condition and enter Australia.

    2010-02-04 12:53:46 補充:

    Usually you will need a reason that beyond your control or have significant downafall if entry to Australia is denial. Then Compassionate Waiver will be granted

    2010-02-04 12:54:39 補充:

    本人好想返過去澳洲的原因, 是因為我臨回來之前已經計劃要再返回澳洲報讀一些課程, 想增值自己同體驗生活, 因為好鐘意澳洲這個地方. 同埋我的男朋友在那邊

    it would help your situation a bit if your boyfriend are an Australian Citizen or Australian Permanent Resident.

    I cannot tell you which one is better as i don't know the whole deal of your case, you should try and ask an immigration lawyer if you really up for it.

    2010-02-08 02:47:50 補充:

    I can only tell you this.

    You should apply waiver if your hope of appeal is not good, only apply appeal if you really have a good chance.

    2010-02-08 02:49:15 補充:

    問題2: 我向旅行社申請ETA果陣, 佢地無同我講話我申請不到ETA的, 同埋是旅行社免費幫我做的, 因為我在佢地公司買機票的關係.

    Well, you should always contact Australian Consulate ifyou have a visa before getting to Australia. Regardless will Travel agency do anything

    問題3:我想請問這個"Compassionate Wavier" 可以做什麼的, 如果持有這個, 可以係澳洲讀書或者工作嗎?

    Compassionate waiver is not a visa, it is a waiver to waive your cannot entry status. It did not allow you to do anything in Australia, itallow you to apply for a visaand enter Austarlia.

    問題4: 我想請問如果求情時, 說出男朋友在澳洲會有幫助嗎? 定抑或說出我男朋友係澳洲..反而不好? ( *他是澳洲人 )

    Unless he is planning on getting married with you, he does not post anything better or worse on the table.

    2010-02-08 02:56:08 補充:

    問題5: 我想請問除了解釋我在日期上的錯失外, 我是否要有更多其他的理由才可以令我重返澳洲既機會大多一些呢? 例如...想在澳洲讀書, 體驗生活同埋男朋友在澳洲..等等.

    Again, i cannot answer Yahoo as free advice, without getting the whole deal i cannot tell you which is the best or what should you say. Suggest you go find an immigration lawyer and ask him/her.
