Subclass 808 or the Confirmatory Residence visa is structured especially for the former Norfolk Island Immigration Permit holders, who held either a TEP (Temporary Entry Permit)/ GEP (General Entry Permit) or UEP (Unrestricted Entry Permit), provided that they ensure compliance with all the necessary requirements for residence purpose. With this visa, the holders can indefinitely reside and work anywhere in Australia.
For a detailed understanding of the subclass 808 visa, get in touch with our visa immigration agents. Our team has professional visa consultants to cater to all your requirements and visa related queries and concerns.
The subclass 808 belongs to the Class AK category of the Australian visas; this visa was structured to accommodate the integration of Norfolk Island into the Australian migration zone since the Immigration Act 1980 (NI) ceased to apply from 1 July 2016. Consequent to the integration, all non-citizens on Norfolk Island were required to hold a visa under the Migration Act 1958. The system transitions residents of Norfolk Island and certain permit holders, along with newborn babies of certain permit holders, to the visa system under the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) on 1 July 2016. The confirmatory residence visa has been designed accordingly for the former holders of Norfolk Island entry permits. This is a permanent visa that lets eligible residents from Norfolk Island live and work freely in Australia. An 808 visa holder can travel overseas and return to Australia as a permanent resident until the travel component of their visa expires.
To apply for a subclass 808 visa, an applicant needs to ensure that they comply with all the eligibility requirements for the visa category.
