The weather outside is frightful(-lly hot!)
This time next week, it will be Christmas Eve. It is currently a perfect 26 degrees at Bondi Beach.
The Australian holiday season is in full swing and, with Christmas just days away, people from around the world are here to enjoy the best this country has to offer. Where else can you spend Christmas day sitting on the beach in your shorts? It is no wonder that many people choose to come and spend the holiday period with their family and friends in Australia. But why leave it to a visit?
There are many compelling reasons to want to stay in Australia past the holidays. The unique culture, the great weather and the wealth of opportunities certainly account for that! The temptation is often there to simply ‘miss’ your plane home and settle in to a comfy flat somewhere near the beach. Unfortunately, it isn’t quite as simple as that. It involves deciding on the visa you need, making the application and seeing it through.
If you do decide that you would like to stay in Australia, you should speak with a registered migration agent as soon as possible. It takes time to gain a visa that allows extended (or permanent) stays in Australia. At Phillip Silver and Associates, we specialise in visas and migration law. With our help, you can determine what sort of visa is most appropriate for the length of time you would like to stay and what steps you need to take in order to attain it. We are also available to talk about issues with existing visas, such as visa refusals. These problems always crop up at the worst possible time, so let us help you fix them quickly and cleanly.
Don’t let the stress and frustration of the migration process ruin your holiday. We want you to be able to stay in Australia as long as you want, so we will help you in whatever way we can. Consider it our Christmas gift to you. After all, you don’t want to miss out on this, do you?
