South Australia state nominated visas for section 48 bar applicants

From 21 April 2020, Immigration SA has made changes to the processing and nomination of applicants who are affected by a section 48 bar.

The section 48 bar applies to applicants who have had a visa refused or cancelled since their last entry to Australia and prevents an applicant from applying for a visa onshore.

For applicants who are affected by the section 48 bar and are currently waiting assessment:

Subject to the continuation of the current travel restrictions, Immigration SA will hold existing applications affected by a section 48 bar until 30 June 2020. Please notify Immigration SA if you are section 48 barred and are unable to travel offshore to lodge a valid visa application. 

For applicants submitting their application for state-nomination on or after 21 April 2020: 

If you are affected by a section 48 bar and are unable to travel offshore to lodge a valid visa application please do not submit an application for state-nomination. Immigration SA will no longer nominate applicants who are unable to travel offshore to lodge a valid visa application.

If you are affected by a section 48 bar, you must only submit a state nomination application once you satisfy Schedule 1 of the Migration Regulations and are able to lodge a valid visa application offshore.

To proceed with your application, you must provide Immigration SA with confirmation that you will be travelling offshore to lodge a valid visa. Immigration SA may request information regarding previous visa refusals or cancellations, including if the refusal or cancellation decision is undergoing review at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
