Hi agian Janet

I rushed into print too fast as I was preparing to watch an Australian V New ZEaland match. The REAL answer is, that as they hold a 173 visa, they DO NOT have to depart Australia to collect the 143. Sorry about that, I suggest you email me so that I can explain why.


Best regards

Hi Janet


Thanks for your question. Unfortunatelly the regulation relevant to the grant of this visa requires them to be offshore at time of grant. However thay can go anywhere, many people go to Auckland New Zealand for about 5 days and collect the visa there. If they do that they will need to inform Immigration where they will go before they go.Does Immigration know where thay are for them to write to? If they used an agent Immigration will write to the agent. In any case they will check where thay are and tlel them they need to travel womewhere overseas.


Does that help? Contact me direct if you like on any time, or your parents can also of course.
