I'm currently working in the US on an L1B visa, and my visa is expiring on November 2019. I'm planning to visit Australia on a Tourist/Visit visa during December to visit my friends. I'm planning to fly from India to Australia during that time. I have the following queries. I appreciate your help in advance.
- Can I apply online in the US and select the country of residence as the US?
- Since my visa is expiring in November, the recommended document says valid visa and right to return. But I'm planning to travel from India only. So will selecting the current location as the US cause any problem?
- I have recently moved, so my payslips and bank account are still in India. Can I show them as proof of funds?
- How long will it take to process the visitor visa?
Update: OP applied selecting India as the country of residence and was granted the visa.
Finally, I travelled from US to Australia directly in December 2019 when my US visa was filed for extension. No problem on flights or Australia immigration with my visitor visa. Then returned to India to get it stamped again and came back to US.
