Not sure on that one. My husband had the three year ban thing. We went all over the world. We were a little worried about the USA, but all went smoothly.

Problem is a criminal conviction could seriously affect chances of a visa, certainly to the USA.

They would have had that issue without this happening.

I realise OP's friend's girlfriend may have good reason for wanting revenge. However, at what point does it become blackmail ? I realise going to the authorities about that defeats the object. However, is this threat going to hang until either he leaves Aus or the WHV expires and he leaves Aus in the future ?

Oh I understand that bit, my assumption was that she knew when he applied that he did so falsely, that's where I was coming from. But bottom line is that silly things like immature revenge on a broken relationship do no one any good, on either party....but then we all do silly things!

I'd say 'yes'. Personally, I wouldn't do it (revenge doesn't help anyone to move on), but as you've suggested we don't know the background and I guess we don't need to as the issue is the OP's lie. Or the OP's friend's lie. I suppose the bottom line is, if you do the right thing you can't be tripped up.

Not me.....never had to and neither did they. Even my ex wife and I parted on extremely good terms and there was no need for any revenge or spite between us. In fact to this day, 14 yrs later, we are very good friends.
