Hello! i just wanna ask is there other way na makapagstay ako sa australia kahit matapos na yung tourist visa ko?

    @heyyana apart from the tourist visa substream, you will need to prove that you have at least competent english on all 4 bands. It may be ielts or any similar alternatives..

    @heyyana mag-asawa ka ng australian citizen

    Depending on the condition your visa has, you may or may not extend. If your visa has a "no further stay" condition, I am afraid you may have to leave Australia.
