Q Visas

By Tiara

As more people use social media to connect with friends, family, and colleagues around the world, it becomes increasingly difficult to know who you can trust.

People spread false information about themselves all the time- something that is particularly prevalent now with online shopping. It is very easy to believe everything someone else says about their identity because there is no way of verifying this information!

In fact, almost half (46%) of smartphone users have made an important decision based on what they read about someone’s personal life, according to a recent survey conducted by YouGov for Visa.

This number rises to two thirds (66%) among respondents in India, where fake reviews are rife. Almost one fifth (18% in total) said they would not do business with a company if a bad review was posted online, while 10% cancelled their order as a result of a negative comment. One respondent even went as far as to say she wouldn’t spend money at a supermarket chain due to poor ratings.

These results show how significant a role social media plays in our daily lives. More than eight out of ten people (83%) agree that when buying a product, you should take into account what others think about it, says Vishal Bhardwaj, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Global Issuing Services, VISA. “As consumers ourselves, we understand just how powerful word-of-mouth marketing can be.

The cost of applying for a Q visa is typically covered by social services or refugee agencies that help you apply for the visa.

They may also cover some of the application fees, accommodation while you wait to hear if you have been granted residency in Australia, and transportation to and from the embassy or consulate where your interview will be held.

Some refugees pay their own way to attend the interview, but this depends on the individual and what kind of support they receive from friends and family.

It’s important to note that even though the government covers part of the Q visa process, it doesn’t guarantee employment after you arrive in Australia as a resident. This can make it difficult to survive without paid work.
