How to Apply for a Subclass 651 Visa

Before submitting an application for a subclass 651 visa, the candidate must ensure that they hold a valid passport. If your passport is due to expire within 12 months of obtaining your visa, it is advised to secure a fresh passport before initiating the visa application process as a 651 visa is attached to the current passport. If the current passport expires or the candidate gets a new passport the subclass 651 visa will cease and the the candidate will be required to apply for a new visa category.

The next step lies in the gathering of the relevant evidence as per the visa conditions. The evidence should be accurate and complementary to the application form’s facts as per the 651 eligibility.

After filing the subclass 651 visa applications, the Department shall inform the candidate of their decision. To ensure you attain a positive decision, get in touch with our immigration agents for your smooth visa processing.
