Hi Experts,

Is that possible to convert application 190 class from onshore application to Offshore? There will be any delay in processing due to this?..


Please suggest..

190.4—Circumstances applicable to grant
190.411
The applicant may be in or outside Australia when the visa is granted, but not in immigration clearance

In 190, If you apply onshore or offshore there is no mandate to get the visa at the same place you applied

There is no differentiation between onshore and offshore in the 190 visa class anymore. Just let your case officer know about the address change (Form 929).

Thanks for clarifying it.

Do we have any supportive documents for it where I can dig more and find more info regarding converting onshore to offshore?

if you are on a BVA, you need to apply for a BVB, then travel to any country, but make sure you return before the BVB expires, if it expires while you're offshore, both the BVB and the BVA will cease, and then you will have to wait for your 190 grant offshore

I already quoted migration regulations (Schedule 2, Clause 190.4) in my reply above. 190 can be granted onshore or offshore regardless of where the application was made. Some other visas can't and in that case Schedule 2 mentions clearly you have to be in a certain place at the time of grant (e.g.: 820 can only be granted onshore, 309 can only be granted offshore ...etc.)

Dude, you need to RELAX. You are burning through your own nerves.
