Changes In Visa Application
From January 7, 2019, the Australian Visa Application process is expected to change, and this is happening at the Australian Visa Application Centres (AVAC) in the country, that is, in Abuja and in Ikeja, Lagos.
Therefore, these contact points in Nigeria shall be served as the Australian Biometric Collection Centre (ABCC).
Persons will not have to lodge a paper visa application anymore for Australia visa at each of this centre in Nigeria.
Hence any interested person applying for an Australian visa is advised to submit his visa application through ImmiAccount.
And please note, the Lagos and the Abuja Australian Biometric Collection Center are to serve two key functions, and these functions are:
- To collect biometrics information, that is, photograph and fingerprints from the person applying for an Australian visa
2. The second one os the information services for pre-lodgement enquiries via the TLScontact call centre on +27 (0)12 472 3800
Again, if you cannot lodge online, or maybe you are asked to lodge a paper application, you at this point have to courier your application directly to the Service Delivery Partner TLScontact, which is in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is worthy of note that, this option is likely to incur a service fee, which is to be paid to TLScontact.
Please note that you are to pay upfront for any visa application couriered to TLScontact at the following:
Also, note that you are expected to book an appointment for the provision of biometrics which is likely to be done via the TLScontact website. They will not accept Walk-in appointments.
Once you have lodged your own visa application, you are not expected to call, neither do they expect you to email the Australian High Commission for the purpose of checking on your application status.
Rather, you can be allowed to contact Australia’s Department of Home Affairs through the use of its Immigration Enquiry Form.
You may not likely to receive any response, should you seek to follow-up on an application that is considered to be within a global visa and also citizenship processing times.
