Hi all,

Just have a question regarding overstayed my student VISA for 2 days. Expired on 8/05/2012. And I just seen DIAC yesterday on 10/05/2013 for departure and to get a bridging visa. Departure date is on 17/05/2013 and my bridging visa had been granted till 20/05/2013.

I'm worrying all the way since yesterday regarding while departure what obstacles will I face. Will I be banned for re-entry Australia for 3 years? I have reason of overstaying due to my academy and they told me I have right to remain in Australia for up to 28 days. But I'm actually not till yesterday DIAC told me. But within this 2 days I'm dealing with my academy and they sent me couple email for meeting to discuss my academic progress. Just wondering is this reason strong enough to tell the customs?

Was worry all the time will I be ban for re-entry. Can anyone can give me good advice on my case. Thank you so much. Appreciate.
