Poon Gooey had received one extension to his 1918 CEDT, but in 1924 wrote again to the Collector of Customs in Melbourne for a further extension. He wrote care of the Wing On Company in Shanghai.
The request was granted by the Department of Home and Territories in January 1925. There is, however, no indication on the file that Poon Gooey ever did return to Australia.
