Guys, today, when the world borders are open for travelling, we are pretty often receiving questions about entering and leaving Australia while the Department is making decisions of visa or citizenship application.
Let’s discuss this subject together. I will also provide you with recommendations and tips to help and avoid delays in application processing or unwanted expenses.
If you applied for a visa from Australia and you are waiting decision:
If you are waiting for a citizenship by conferral:
There was a case in my own practice, where a man applied for citizenship and then found a job as a flight attendant for an international airline company. After extensive correspondence with the Department, he insisted on involving me in this case, and we resolved it without a Tribunal hearing. However, it required quitting his job and returning to Australia because the officer didn’t believe he would return to live here.
I’d like to remind you of the standard conditions for obtaining citizenship: reside in Australia for 4 years, with an absence of no more than 12 months during that period; have a Permanent Residency visa during the last year, with no more than 90 days of being overseas.

Dear future Australians, I would like to remind you that my team is ready to assist you not only with immigration, visitor, or study visas but also with consultations and citizenship application preparation. Many of you might say that for such a straightforward procedure, an agent service is not required.
And I’ll reply, “The process of obtaining citizenship is not always transparent and straightforward.” Some cases have their peculiarities (frequent business trips, family circumstances) and require prior consultation, a detailed calculation of days of staying onshore, and/or the preparation of solid evidence.
If this is your case, please don’t hesitate to contact us for advice, and don’t let the matter escalate to Tribunal intervention because it will cost you 20 times more of financial expenses and 500 times more in negative mental experience.
