Visa Refusals Are On The Rise, and Here Is The Proof

VISA REFUSED

Visa Refusals Are On The Rise, and Here Is The Proof

Refused Visitor Visa applications:

Visa 2014 – 15 2015 – 16 2016 – 17
All Types 112,860 145,270 156,705

 

Individual’s must not take for granted the criteria involved when lodging for a visitor visa, with the highest refusal rates came under the 600 and 651 subclasses.

BUSINESS VISAS (132, 188, 888):

Lodged business and investor visa applications:

Visa 2014 – 15 2015 – 16 2016 – 17
132 252 342 718
188 3,269 2,184 3,605
888 15 38 226

 

Refused business and investor visa applications:

Visa 2014 – 15 2015 – 16 2016 – 17
132 15 21 23
188 280 301 207
888 <5 <5 <5

 

Low refusal numbers are correlated to the money spent and the attention to detail by the savviest of applicants. Very rarely do I know of a prospective Business Visa client that tries to lodge themselves without spending the money on a good agent or lawyer, as they know that money spent on experienced knowledge is a worthy investment in itself. These statistics also show that the low number of 888 applications means that Business Visa holders are not often meeting their requirements in the temporary 188 stage to obtain Permanent Residency. Don’t rush the Business Plan.

STUDENT AND GRADUATE VISAS (500, 485)

Student Visa subclass 500:

Lodged 2017 – 18 = 413,327

Refused 2017 – 18 = 35,035

Temporary Graduate subclass 485:

Lodged 2017 -18 = 58,863

Refused 2017 – 18 = 3,207

The current student visa industry is plagued by education agents unqualified to give migration advice and some who chase higher commissions rather than what course and institution is in the best interest of the student. These are two factors leading to such high refusal rate in student visas. For the Temporary Graduate Visa, this is similar to General Skilled Migration which fresh graduates aim to save what little money they have and lodge without using a migration agent and end up with a refusal.

    […] So you work harder than ever before, all the stress and the money, and finally get your invitation to apply for the visa from successful EOI (expression of interest). Congratulations, but you are not at the finish line yet. Please please PLEASE don’t join one of the hundreds of 189, 190, and 489 visa applicants that achieve invitation from EOI and then get a refusal. Yes, you read that correctly, hundreds of people every year still get their visa approved AFTER successfully submitting points for EOI. Read the figures for yourself and see my suggestions in my January 2019 blog, titled ‘Visa Refusals Are On The Rise, And Here Is The Proof. […]
