The Australian government has introduced a new immigration rule for the visa applicants. As per the new rule, an applicant found guilty of providing misleading information or false documents can face 10 year visa ban. Australian government has made its immigration rules and requirements stern over the last few months and this new visa rule is one such example of the same.
10 year Visa ban for false documents or information
This new immigration rule, which was talk of the town for last couple of weeks, has now taken effect. The new rule can ban an applicant for ten years if found responsible for supplying forged or bogus information or documents to the immigration authorities. This has been implemented as part of the changes to migration regulations by promulgating the Migration Legislation Amendment (2017 Measures No. 4) Regulations 2017 which is applicable from November 18.
Section 4020 of the Public Interest Criterion
The new visa rule come under section 4020 of the Public Interest Criterion, which penalizes the applicants, who provide bogus documents or misleading information to the Immigration Department, Migration Review Tribunal, or the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, in the last 10 years applicant has submitted the application. The rule is applicable to the visa applications made on or after November 18, 2017.
As per the earlier rule in this regard, a candidate found guilty of supplying forged or bogus documents or information in the visa application during one year prior to submitting application, was liable for facing a ban of 3 years. However, now the government has extended the screening period for fraud detection to 10 years from 12 months. It clearly means that the person found guilty of immigration fraud or supplying forged documents or information in the application will be barred for 10 years, as per the new visa rule.
The government justifies the new Immigration rules
Australian Immigration Minister has justified the decision saying that government’s purpose behind the new rule is to deny the visa applicants from manipulating with the regulations by withdrawing the applications and then immediately applying once 12 month’s exclusion period is over.
The applicants found guilty of providing false information are likely to supply forged information to other departments after ‘actively wait out’ the 12 month’s ban and then apply again. Hence, the review period of ten years is essential, reasonable, and proportionate measure taken by the government to uphold the integrity of the whole visa framework.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.

I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
