I was denied an eVisitor visa for Australia because I had already spent two years in Australia and thought I would get another eVistor visa for a reason other than holiday.
I really for holidays before undertake my working holiday visa in NZ.
So after I was denied I applied for an ETA "visa" and was approved.
- Am I allowed in Australia or not?
- Am I going to have problems at the airport?
- In case they don't let me in can I go straight to NZ as I have a visa for NZ?
sorry maybe I didnt explain myself very well as I was in a rush. I'm italian girl. I came back from Australia in december, after 2 year of WHV. Last week I applied for Evisitor ( so after about one month I was home), because I have a WHV for NZ and I thought to pass from Australia first to visit places that i didnt see while I was there. My intention to go to Australia is purely turist. When I apply online I got email from immigration officer that I have to send them more informtion. I answered them with my holiday plan in Australia attached with accomodations from first few dys, my visa for NZ , my ticket out from Australia to NZ, my bank account with sufficiente founds....they still refuse my visa because for them I dont have genuine intentions in Australia. They said, I already spend 697 day in Australia under WHV and the main pourpose of WHV is holidays not working. But I dint work more then 6 months for the same employer and I didnt abuse of WHV at all, I stayed under all the condition about this visa and I also travelled a lots while a was there.....but we all know how big is Australia. There are places I didnt see, that is why before go to NZ ( now that I have money from Christmas and some savings) I wanted to go first for holiday to Australia before undertake my WHV in NZ. This is not fear because now I have a denied visa in my passport for reason that they cant even proof (that is means everytime I apply for visaqs for other country I have to declare I got a denied visa in Australia), and I have flight booked to Brisbane that I cant change as it was under a saver fare. So after I got denied for evisitor I wanted a transit visa, so I could get my flight to Brisbane and then take the flight to NZ, and i found this ETA visa, I apply online throught a travel agent and I got approved after 5 minuts. How this works? Why I got denied from evisitor and approvedd for ETA, when the pourpose are the same? Am I gonna have problems at the airport? It will appear on them computer when I pass the immigration counter that I have been denied from evisitor? Can I apply again for evsitor? Thank you for your answer, Im really frustrated because I feel like a criminal...
