The immigration department of South Australia has announced that applicants who are not able to apply for a substantial visa program from outside Australia due to the 48 section bar won’t be allowed to get a nomination from the state. However, they will be able to do so only if they have met the following criteria:

  • Submission of a letter of confirmation to the SA immigration department, which proves that you are genuinely travelling outside Australia to apply for a substantial visa.
  • If the SA immigration department asks you, you will also have to submit documents that prove the refusal/cancellation of your former visa.
  • In case, the decision of your visa refusal or cancellation is being reviewed by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, then, you will also have to submit substantial documents to the SA immigration department related to it.
  • You will have to meet the Schedule 1 Migration Regulations effectively as well.

The immigration department of South Australia will allow you to apply for a valid visa from outside Australia only if you have met the aforesaid criteria successfully. Most importantly, you will only be allowed to do this if your previous visa has been canceled or refused due to the bar applied under 48 sections apart from any other reason.
