Why Do I Have a No Further Stay Condition(8503) on my Visitor Visa?

First of all, let me explain what a no further stay condition is.

A no further stay condition is a limiting condition that prohibits you from lodging any further visas while you are in Australia.OK

Why would this condition be added to your visa?

If you are unable to show strong ties to your home country your visitor visa may be refused, or granted with a limiting no further stay condition (8503) imposed on it.

This is one of a number of factors that Immigration considers when deciding whether or not to grant a visitor visa and whether to impose a no further stay condition on the visa.

If your visitor visa is granted with an 8503 condition on it, you are still able to visit Australia. However, if your intentions were to change, you will not be able to lodge any further visa applications while onshore, for example, an onshore Partner Visa.

If you are watching this video you might be in one of two situations:

  1. you would like to avoid getting a no further stay condition imposed on your visa or
  2. you already have a no further stay condition on your visa.

In both situations, it is best to speak to a Registered Migration Agent who understands the relevant risk profile of a no further stay condition and they will be able to guide you with the best course of action for your specific circumstance.
