  • Realities on Aussie visas issued to PNGeans
    • let's try to solve this problem logically
      Posted Feb 4, 2012 2:19 PM

      The reason for so many of our visa applications being turned down is that sadly, too many of our wantoks overstay their visas and reside illegally in Australia.

      The Aussies can to these comparisons on a month by month basis - how many of us follow the rules and how many of us don't. They need to keep the violators down to a very low level and they've found that only by making it very tough to get a visa can they somehow manage to filter out the humbugs that want to come to Australia to live permanently.

      The situation is never going to change - ever ever - until we as PNGeans manage to somehow find ways to police ourselves and keep our dishonest countrymen and women from overstaying their Aussie visas. Any idea how we can possibly do that?
