This nice comment is from my recent client, who received the designated activity visa after 6 months even the first attempt was rejected by the immigration.
They are lovely couples from the Netherlands, the applicant is the Netherlander and his husband is Australian. Their case was very very tough. He applied to change the tourist visa to the designated activity visa on 28th of October, 2019.
We waited, waited and waited… and the result was finally available on 6th of February, 2020. Unfortunately, it was denial. I couldn’t believe the news because I was really confident about their case.
But then, I spoke to the immigration, asked the situation and what to do. By this time, I was pretty sure that there would be a chance so my client immediately reapplied.
On May 18th, he received the additional document request letter from the immigration. It wasn’t an easy request, but we talked about how we should do, then we prepared the documents, explaining one by one for the immigration to understand the facts and the truth, believing that this had to work.
On 25th of April, finally, after long long waiting time, he received the good news… it took 6 months!!!!
What I would like to tell you here is, the rejection isn’t always the end of the world. There is a case that it is not possible at all to reapply, but you need to ask questions to the immigration, need to find out what their concerns are, clarify every doubt in your mind, then you can decide, whether to reapply or not.
I am so so happy for them. They are such a lovely couple!
