Can Visa 489 be extended?

graceegracee SydneyPosts: 69Member
Hello po. Baka po may makakasagot sa akin sa forum na ito. Kung sakali po ba na hindi ko masatisfy ang mga conditions para maka-apply ng permanent residence before mag-expire ang visa 489 ko, pwede po ba ako magrequest ng extension?

    @ajet02 Thanks for the reply. Would you know what reasons they accept for extension? May chance po ba na hindi maapprove? Meron po bang website where i can find about this?

    @arishiel hello po. ask ko lang po about visa 489. in case po ba ma grant ng visa 489 hanggang kelan po dapat kayo umalis? kasi di po ba sa 190 pede pong mag initial entry tpos parang within 4 years ata yun na pede ka pa mag stay sa ibang bansa bago mag permanent sa Aussie. How about po sa 489? salamat po ng madami.

    @greysworld123 489 visa ka? IED usually before the expiration of medical / police cert. 489 visa is only for 4 years, where in you need to be in Au for 2 years and out of 2 years dapat 1 year full time employed ka to apply for the PR visa.
