Australia-New Zealand Cruise on Single-Entry Visa

Hi. Nag apply kami (my kids and I) for tourist visas to Australia. Nilagay ko sa application na mag cruise kami. Wala akong sinubmit na itinerary kasi wala pa kaming booking that time. Na grant naman though my kids got single entry. They gave me multiple entry. Right after ma-approve, nagbook na kami. The booking was based on the dates that work for me (yung pwede ako mag leave from work). Ang nabook namin is New Zealand cruise which starts and ends in Sydney.

Later on naisip ko kung enough ba yung single-entry visas ng mga bata. When we enter Sydney from Manila, it would be their first entry.

Pag alis ba namin from the Sydney port, are we officially exiting Australia? And pagbalik ba after the cruise, is that a re-entry? At first it seems that it’s the case. Pero naiisip ko din, siguro naman (more of “sana naman”) may special permit ang Australia especially if the cruise originated from one of their ports like New Zealand has a “deemed to hold a visa” for cruise ship crew and passengers.

Sana meron na naka experience dito. We tried calling Royal Caribbean but they just asked us to check with visacentral.com which was no help at all. Thanks in advance!
