I may have Visa issues in the none too distant future.i have been living in Australia
for nigh on 9 years on every kind of temporary visa that some shiny ass has come up with here.I have been put thru the wringer/hoops and spent a kings ransom on "doing the right thing.'' Visa wise.
My problem is that in this time i have been building a catamaran
and am near to completion, a launch in Feb is most likely. i am awaiting a decision on a permanent visa but due to some health
issues my chances of gaining residency may be a bit more challenging.
I am not some dodgy drug runner, i owe not a single
dollar to no man but may find that i will have to leave under the radar
from Aus if my visa is denied.Having dealt with immigration for the last five years i can tell you that this process is soul destroying and mighty stressful.
I will get the boat registered in Australia
as all my family
are citizens.One of them will be part owner for the paper work.If my permanent visa is denied and i want to go voyaging over the horizon, what would you do in my situation?
all the best paul.
