1. Q: I am unable to use my visa to travel to Australia due to current COVID19 travel restricetions.   Is it possible to extend the validity  of my visa?
    A: Negative.   It is not legally possible to extend the validity of a visa.  If you wish to travel to Australia after the expiry of your current
          visa you  should apply for and obtain a new visa.  This will involve paying the Visa Application Charge again and providing all the
          necessary and  up-to-date supporting documents again.
2.  Q:   I am unable to use my visa to travel to Australia due to current Covid-19 travel restrictions.   Is it possible to get a refund of the Visa Application Charge I paid?
      A:  Negative.  Changes to or cancellation of travel due to COVID-19 travel restrictions does not make you eligible for a refund.  


IMPORTANT: You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The Australian government and the Embassy will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.
