Leon , you did say that the laws are different in every state, I am in Qld, and you are in NSW, The reply you gave me is that for QLD. thankyou.
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 1 year ago

For Visas' it is a Federal law and applies the same in all states.

What I have given you applies in all states. You are dealing with the Federal Government not the state Government.
