Your visa is expiring or has expired

If you don't have a valid visa

It is unlawful to stay in Australia without a valid visa. Check if you might be able to apply for a new visa.

If you can't get a new visa, you must leave. If you don't leave, we can:

  • detain you
  • remove you from Australia
  • bill you for the cost of removing you from Australia

If you leave Australia as a person who did not hold a valid visa, the Department could also refuse to grant you another visa for up to 3 years, except in limited circumstances.

See Leave Australia.
