Expired Visas and Visa Breaches
Overstaying Your Visa
If you remain in Australia after your visa has expired you may be detained and then removed from Australia and the government can recover the costs incurred in doing so.
The Australian government frowns upon people who overstay their visas. You limit your options dramatically by becoming unlawful. It’s very risky. If you have overstayed your visa it is important to get advice from an immigration lawyer immediately so you know your options.
If you’re unlawful for more than 28 days, you’ll be banned from returning to Australia for three years. This period will apply even if you leave Australia voluntarily.
