Hello everyone, my name is Bonnie and I am currently in Australia to visit my family. (3months ETA) My plane to go back home would leave on the 7th of October. The problem is I just found out I am not able to fly, I had a skull fracture last year and have fluid leaking in my ear. I saw a doc in Sydney due to severe headaches, dizziness. He told me I cannot fly until I see a neursorgeon in Sydney. They are thinking about closing the fracture in my head. So I just called the neurosurgeon but the earliest appointment they could give me is on monday october 8th. What do I do now? I know I cant extend an ETA but I also cant fly. I need some urgent advise and help!
Thank you!

contact immagrations i am pretty sure that there is away of extending your visa if you have to stay for medical reasons

Definately contact imigration, also make sure you've got a letter from the doctor and details of the appointment with the neurosurgeon as well it'll save time getting later as immigration will want to see them to verify the situation
