All foreigners to apply 60 days before expiry of their current visa
The Department of Home Affairs has announced that all visa renewal’s needs to be lodged 60 days before expiring and no longer 30 days as in the past.
Under the “old Legislation” it was possible to submit your application with a good cause letter if you have exceeded the 30 day period and Home Affairs would still accept your late submission, if they were happy with your reasoning.
The “new regulations” however prohibits the use of a good cause letter and no late submissions will be accepted by the Home Affairs Lodgement Centres.
All applications should be submitted 60 days before it expires.
