From 18 November, most newly granted temporary visas will have a new condition on them. The new condition states that you must use the same name to identify yourself on all official Australian identity documents. It also says that if you change your name you must take all reasonable steps to ensure that all of your documents are updated to reflect your new name.
This means you will need to take extra care if your name has more than one spelling in English that the same spelling is used on all of your documents.
If you or someone you know needs a temporary visa, call us today on 08 6161 9239 to schedule a consultation.
