Before a person even think about stay Illegal in Australia, the dialog below will give a good glimpse of what this person is about to face.

Operator: "Thank you for calling Pizza, May I have your order?"
Customer: "Hello, can I order.."
Operator: "Can I have your card number first, Sir?"
Customer: "It's, eh ... Hold on ... 610204999-61-6110"
Operator: "OK ... you're ... Mr Sheehan and you're calling from 175 Oak Road.  Your home number is 4,  Your work number is 745 2302.  And your mobile phone is 414 266 2566 .  Would you like to have the delivery made to the same address?
Customer: "Yes.  How did you get all my phone numbers?"  
Operator: "We are connected to the System, Sir." 
Customer: "May I order your Seafood Pizza ..."
Operator: "That's not a good idea Sir."
Customer: "How come?"
Operator: "According to your medical records, you have high blood pressure and even higher cholesterol levels.
Customer: "What?! ... What do you recommend then?"
Operator: "Try our Low Fat Soybean Yogurt Pizza.  You'll like it."
Customer: "How do you know that for sure?"
Operator: "You borrowed a book entitled "Popular Soybean Yogurt Dishes" from the Library last week, Sir." 
Customer: "OK.  I give up ... Give me three family sized ones then.   How much will that cost?"
Operator: "That should be enough for your family of 10, Sir.  The total is $ 49.99."
Customer: "Can I pay by credit card?"
Operator: "I'm afraid you have to pay us cash, Sir.  Your credit card is over the limit and you're owing your bank $3720.55 since October of last year."
Customer: "Never mind just send the pizzas.  I'll have the cash ready.  How long is it gonna take anyway?"
Operator: "About 45 minutes, Sir.  But if you can't wait you can always come and collect it on your motorcycle ..."
Customer: " What the..?"
Operator: "According to the details in the system, you own a Harley, ... registration number E1123 ..."
Customer: "##!!#%%!?#!!"
Operator: "Sorry, Sir.  Better watch your language!  Remember on 15 July '87, you were convicted of using abusive language to a police officer ..."
Customer:  (Speechless)
Operator: "Is there anything else Sir?"
Customer: "Nothing ... by the way ... Don't forget to give me the 3 free bottles of Pepsi that you advertised!" 
Operator: "We normally would, Sir, but based on your records  you're also diabetic !!!"

The joke above reflects what a person may encounter if he or she decides to hide from the Australian Immigration Department. Of course it is not like that, because Australia has strictly privacy laws, and probably is not interested at all if a person is diabetic or not, but the system used provides a very good border control and of the Australian territory. The Department of Immigration acts very firmly to control illegal migrants or people who simply decides to overstay their Visas. Our message to anyone who intend to do this is...

There are many ways to live and work in Australia by taking the right Visa which fits the person's intention. Besides that, in our concept, stay illegal in any country is the same as invade a person's house without not being invited and with no time to leave. Australian people are great host, but like any other culture based on mutual respect, Australian don't think twice before delating an intruder to the authorities.

The second point is that "Under the table Jobs" as it is know in the United States, is not something common in Australia, and many employers will not contract an worker in an Illegal situation. The few that may do so, may face heavy penalties or even prison if found giving work to someone in the illegality. Basicaly all companies ask for the "Tax File Number" of the employee as well as pay directly to a bank account. Often, the Immigration Department do "Blitz" in companies suspected of contracting illegal workers. 

Finally, a person who stays illegal or overstay the Visa may be arrested and deported without any previous notice, not talking about the fact that the country of origin of this person(s) may influence the classification that Australia have for anyone from that country to obtain future Visas. If you like Australia and Australians, please DO NOT overstay your Visa. Talk with an Immigration department officer that he or she may be able help you to stay or work in Australia, everything done under the law.

Stay Illegal in Australia is a stupidity !!!


To scape from the Immigration, Big John pretended to be a statue in a park, but gave himself up due the pigeons.
