Does anyone know exactly who I have to contact to cancel a visa. I cant seem to find a number on the immi website.

What kind of visa do you have?

This answer assumes its a WHV :- you cant cancel them, once youve paid your fee, thats it money gone. However, if you only want to cancel the visa because you wont make Australia by the time it runs out, you can reapply for a WHV again, based on two conditions, 1, you need to wait until the first visa has expired and 2, you must not have entered Australia during the first visas validity.

If you plan on entering Australia, but dont want it to count for the WHV, you need to buy a new tourist visa.

Hope this helps.

Hi Sunshine, you are talking about a pervious post, right? If I remember correctly it was to do with a WHM for Australia.
The people to call are the Australian High Commission here in London (assuming that that is where your visa was granted), or the High Commission or Consulate where ever your visa was granted OR email via this link:

For London here are the contact details:

Callers in the UK can ring our information service on 09065 508 900 for both recorded information and the option of speaking to a live operator between 9am and 4pm London time on weekdays except for High Commission and Public Holidays. The cost of this service is £1 per minute from BT telephone lines (other provider charges may vary). Calls may be recorded for training purposes.
