hey guys,so in 2004 i went to oz on a working holiday visa for 1 year,great year,great time so good that i overstayed by 12mths!i was actually caught by the NSW cops for a speeding offence anyways i was arrested and was due to be detained but due to an asbestos break out in the detention centre i was let go on the agreement that i go to the immigration office the following day which i did,my passport was out of date so i was given two weeks to sort it all out!!i had a bridging visa in those two week so by law i was "legal",when i got my new passport it was back to the immigration office where they stamped it so i wouldn't have any hassle in the airport they also told that i would have to serve a 3 year ban from oz,i didn't get any hassle in the airport checking in but as i was boarding the flight some guy in uniform shouted after me that i would have problems trying to get back in!
                      sorry for going on but just wanted to give you all the details,i'm now thinking of heading back to oz on a second year working visa i served my 3 years plus another 2 and while i was on my first visa spent nearly the first four and a half months working in a farm in rural queensland, the aussie embassy in london told that there shouln't be a problem as long as i served the 3 years and i dont owe any tax which i'm not sure if i do so my questions are 1)does anyone if i apply and get the visa could i be turned away at the airport? 2)if i owe tax to the gov how do i find out how much and how to pay?

thanks guys sorry about the essay

p.s i did work on an ABN for a few months!!

Were you deported or did you pay your own fare back to Ireland? If you were deported you will need to repay the Australian Government expenses for this and for the detention while awaiting deportation before they will let you back in.

How old are you now? The maximum age for working holiday visas is 30.

Tax is calculated from the return you put in, the entries on that are checked against the entries made by firms or people who you worked for. It is a requirement to submit a tax return each year.

Be aware: The Australian working holiday visa is only available to eligible candidates once in a lifetime, although by undertaking work in a specified industry in regional Australia, it is possible to gain eligibility to an additional 12 month working holiday visa.

You can ask, but I think the chances are slim.
