How can I extend my stay?

If you want to stay in Australia longer than your original visa lets you, you will need to apply for a further visa of the same kind or another visa.

How much longer you can stay in Australia will depend on the visa that you have, or the visa that you apply for.

If you have a ‘No further stay’ condition on your visa, you cannot apply for a new visa while you are in Australia. You must leave Australia no later than the date on which your visa ends, except in extremely limited circumstances.
