We have received the following important information from the Australian High Commission in Pretoria today:
Christmas/New Year Travel
If your clients are planning to visit Australia for Christmas and New Year’s you must lodge their application by Friday 1 December. Visitor visa applications lodged after this date may not be processed until after the holiday period. It is important you lodge complete applications on behalf of your clients, and ensure they provide biometrics as soon as possible as after lodgement.
We can expedite visa processing for visitor visas in genuine instances of compassionate and compelling circumstances.
