An Indian citizen has been denied Australian Permanent Residency visa after immigration authorities received a tip-off that the applicant had not lived in the regional area.
Mr. Singh (name changed on request) arrived Australia in 2007 on a student visa and in 2012 was granted a 487 visa that provides a pathway to permanent residency after living in a Specified regional area for at least two years and working at least for one year full time. He has applied for subclass visa 887 in 2015 but at that time he was denied permanent residency by then titled Minister for Immigration and Border Protection stating they were not satisfied Mr. Singh had lived at two addresses in Wodonga during February 2013 to 2015 as he had claimed.
Mr. Singh had provided immigration authorities with relevant documentary evidence that included utility bills, mobile phone bills, taxation records, employment records, rent agreement and bank statements spanning two years across two properties he claimed to have lived at. However an anonymous informant told the department that Mr. Singh was living and working illegally in Melbourne. The department got to know that Mr. Singh was not working for the nominating employer and in fact had bribed the employer in exchange for not notifying the immigration officials.
The department also learned Mr. Singh had taken in the regional area but was living in Melbourne and worked night shifts as a security guard for cash. His friend who claimed to have lived with him did the same thing and was deported by immigration.
Mr. Singh took the matter to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) of Australia which further found discrepancies in the payslips and bank records and late payments. The tribunal also heard Mr. Singh friend who was deported to India.
The tribunal found licensing records held by Victorian Police that demonstrated Mr. Singh had applied to license as a security guard in 2008, 2011, and 2012 and again in 2015 where the registered address was in Melbourne and the employer was an entity based in Melbourne.
The Federal Circuit Court of Australia accepted Mr. Singh’s argument and observed the Tribunal had not arrived at its decision independently of the anonymous information. However, the matter didn’t end here because The Minister for Immigration and Border Protection appealed this decision and it was allowed on Tuesday where the court found out that the anonymous information was accurate.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
