How to Apply for a Subclass 101 Visa

Before applying for the subclass 101 visa application, the applicant must ensure that they hold a valid passport; if not, a valid passport should be acquired before applying for a visa.

The next step lies in the gathering of the relevant evidence. All the documentary proofs must be collected and analyzed for the Subclass 101 visa application requirements.

Get in touch with our 101 visa consultants/ immigration agents for further details on 101 visa processing and eligibility conditions.

Further, the applicant must ensure that they have not been rejected for access to Australia before. This might lead to the refusal of their subclass 101 visa application. Contact our 101 visa consultant or immigration agents for detailed information on visa processing and eligibility conditions.

The duly filled and complete visa application should be filed with the Department along with the requisite fees. In case the prices are not paid in full, the visa application might not be considered at all.

The applicant must be outside Australia when the visa application is filed, and the decision is made as subclass 101 is an offshore visa.
