  1. Hi everyone! I'm joining this site on behalf of my cousin that has been trying to apply for Australian visitor visa 2 times but always get the refusal letter no matter how we address the issues. I, myself, have got my visa for multiple entries hence I don't really understand what is lacking here on her request. Any help or idea, since we are going to re-apply for the 3rd time, will be much appreciated. Here is the first refusal (as per their statement): "In this case, I am not satisfied that clause 600.211 in Schedule 2 of the Migration Regulations is satisfied. This clause provides that: You have provided evidence of your access to funds only over a small period of time. I am therefore unable to establish that you have a regular and reliable income for your personal support for the period of your intended visit. I must be satisfied that on the basis of all the information available, that you intend a genuine visit Australia, and that there is sufficient incentive to return to Indonesia at the end of your visa period. On the evidence you have provided, I am not satisfied that a genuine visit to Australia is intended. In assessing whether or not the applicant genuinely intends to stay temporarily in Australia, I have taken into account information provided in the application, the applicant's immigration history and compliance with previous visas. I have also taken into consideration any supporting documents as well as the applicant's personal circumstances, commitments, and incentive to return to their country of residence." So we addressed this issue by providing a longer period of her bank statement (from latest 3 months to latest 6 months), payment slip from her company, certificate of employment from her company, issued return ticket back to our country, also cover letter to explain all the issues mentioned above and a consent letter from her parents to guarantee that she will be back home after the visit. Yet, it got refused again. The second refusal was: "In this case, I am not satisfied that clause 600.211 in Schedule 2 of the Migration Regulations is satisfied. This clause provides that: You did not satisfy clause 600.211 of the Regulations, which states that: The applicant genuinely intends to stay temporarily in Australia for the purpose for which the visa is granted, having regard to: (a) whether the applicant has complied substantially with the conditions to which the last substantive visa, or any subsequent bridging visa, held by the applicant was subject; and (b) whether the applicant intends to comply with the conditions to which the Subclass 600 visa would be subject; and (c) any other relevant matter. I am not satisfied that you have provided adequate evidence of your financial circumstances to demonstrate that you have adequate funds (or access to adequate funds) for your personal support for the period of your intended visit. I have considered other factors including employment, personal funds and travel history. Based on consideration of the above factors I am not satisfied that you have not demonstrated strong personal circumstances. I have considered the information and evidence in your visa application and I am not satisfied that you meet the genuine temporary stay requirement criterion in the Visitor visa. In assessing whether or not the applicant genuinely intends to stay temporarily in Australia, I have taken into account information provided in the application, the applicant's immigration history and compliance with previous visas. I have also taken into consideration any supporting documents as well as the applicant's personal circumstances, commitments, and incentive to return to their country of residence. My decision is based on the following factors" What does "I am not satisfied that you have provided adequate evidence of your financial circumstances to demonstrate that you have adequate funds (or access to adequate funds) for your personal support for the period of your intended visit. I have considered other factors including employment, personal funds and travel history. Based on consideration of the above factors I am not satisfied that you have not demonstrated strong personal circumstances. I have considered the information and evidence in your visa application and I am not satisfied that you meet the genuine temporary stay requirement criterion in the Visitor visa." this means? Can somebody help us? Thank you very much in advance to anyone who can help us "translating" what are they looking for. Mia.
  2. Hi, If you were granted a family stream visa subclass 600 for 3 months, single entry on October 1, 2018 (should leave not later than April of 2019) and to leave your country on October 26, 2018- December 1, 2018, when can you re-apply if you wish to go back for the vivid lights on May of 2019?

    600 visa for family

    Hi all! I'd like my family in the Philippines (travelling: parents, sister and family, not travelling: brother and family) to visit me and my family here in Australia for a couple of weeks. We are Australian permanent residents but we've been here for less than two years. I've been told by a registered migration agent that it might be best if my parents lodged their application first to get that out of the way and then to lodge applications for everyone else later. I didn't think of them at the time but now I wonder: 1. Assuming my parents are granted visas, does that have an effect on everyone else's chances? 2. Whether all applying at the same time or in two batches the answers to questions 24 and 25 (Family travelling to Australia, Family NOT travelling to Australia, respectively) of Form 1419 won't change. Will applying separately raise questions about why the applications aren't being done all at once?
  4. Hi, I joined this forum hoping to find some advice on how to proceed with a visa refusal. I am so distraught right now as this refusal upsets all our plans! I have been living in Australia for the past two years on a PR. We applied for sponsored family tourist visas for my mother and brother in December 2017 to have a family holiday during 2018. My brother's visa was refused. The reasons given in the refusal letter are the standard reasons I have seen in many threads in these forums. I know that we may not have built a strong case indicating reasons for my brother to return home. We only submitted the same documents we submitted for my mother. We should have realized that my brother is young and his case should have to be stronger. Can someone please advise on how I should go about reapplying? How else can I prove this is a genuine temporary stay? Is there a format to make a submission on the points raised in the refusal letter? I don't want to get rejected a second time. My poor mother is so sad and worried that she will not be able to visit me either. All documents we have submitted indicate we are law abiding citizens holding responsible positions in society. Why would we want to tarnish our good name by trying to overstay a visitor visa? It's very disappointing how the immigration officers cannot distinguish genuine cases from the fraudulent ones. Thanks in advance for any help!
  5. Hi, Sorry for the long message ahead, but I would really like if someone can help me here. I am a 27 years old Indian citizen. I left my job of around 4 years in Jan this year and have already submitted an EOI for Australian PR (189). I was able to achieve 70 points and now I am just waiting for the invitation. I have a BF in Melbourne who is an Australian Permanent Resident and working full time. We decided while waiting for my permanent residency I could visit him on a 3 month Visitor Visa. I applied on 28th June and got a rejection mail on 29th itself with the reason being "not provided sufficient evidence of your circumstances to demonstrate strong personal, employment or financial incentives to return to your home country after your intended visit with your application." I knew my case was tough to be approved as I am unemployed so I researched a bit over net before submitting my application. I read that it's not advised to mention that you have a bf/gf in Australia as it will slim your chances of returning to your home country. So in the cover letter I mentioned that I am visiting my other friend(ex-colleague) and that she would be helping in accommodation. I filed for just a trip of 2 weeks with booked tickets attached. Here are the other documents attached - Bank statements - more than 15k AUD bank statements Plus stating that I would be staying with my friend Details of friend - her passport, student id, address proof and exit letters from the same company we worked for as a proof that we are ex-colleagues Family Evidence - My passport demographic page stating my Mother, Father's name and My Mother, father, brother, sister's national identity card Booked flight tickets - to and fro (duration of just two weeks) In the cover letter, I mentioned that I have taken a gap year and I am spending time with my family and friends. NOW, I want to apply once again. I have few concerns: 1. Should I apply stating that I' have already filed my EOI for PR and I would not want to screw that by breaking laws and overstaying in Australia'? 2. Should I mention I have a BF there (we have been in a relationship for 3.5 years now but we don't fall in the defacto category)? 3. Will these visitor visas' rejection affect my PR application? 4. Any other advice for making the "intend to come back" point stronger? Right now all I can think is that I have my parents and siblings here which has anyway been rejected. Apologies again for the long message. But I am desperate for any help. Thanks!

    Visitor Visa (Sublass 600) Expiry?

    Hi, Just have a couple of questions related to the Visitor Visa (sublass 600). I'm wanting my girlfriend, who is a Russian citizen, to visit Australia sometime in the next year for about 2 weeks. If she was to apply for it right now: 1. how long is the visa is valid for? I.e. could she decide to visit australia in 6-12 months after the visa was approved or would she have to come in less than 3 months? 2. if she nominated the time she wanted to visit Australia as, e.g. April 2018, would this mean she could visit Australia EARLIER than April, e.g. December 2017, or would the visa have some kind of restriction on visiting before the nominated date? 3. if there is an option for requesting a visa which has a >6 month expiry, does anyone know if that would make the approval process much more difficult/make approval more unlikely? Cheers!
  7. Hello I am from India and I have applied for Australian business visa first time as a first foreign visit, which got refused. Visa Class: Visitor (class FA) Visitor (Business) (subclass 600) my application was refused for the following reasons. " You have not provided sufficient evidence of your circumstances to demonstrate strong personal, employment or financial incentives to return to your home country after your intended visit with your application. I am not satisfied that you genuinely intend to stay temporarily in Australia for the purpose you have stated, and therefore find that you do not satisfy Subclause 600.211 of the Migration Regulations 1994. " My intent to travel Australia to attend the official meetings and I have provided following document while submitting applications. 1) ITR file (last 2 year) 2) Employment documents (invitations letter from Australia office, introduction letter, salary drawn, current designation letter from office) 3) last 6 months bank statement 4) photo, educational documents 5) passport, pan card 6) visa applications documents .etc what I have missed, what would be the reason for refusal? I am planning to re-apply for the visa as meetings are very urgent for my current role. Team, please suggest me what additional document would make my application strong?. With the new application, I am going to add additional bank account details which are having the good saving history, with fixed deposits. In addition to this, I can provide "Letter from my dad relating our relationship and residence status in your home country." Do they accept any specific form, please share I don't own any property or assets so that I can not provide anything related to this. Thank you.
  8. Hello, I'm hoping someone will be able to offer me some help and advice. I am a British Citizen and I am in a relationship with an Australian whom I met through my best friend when I was visiting her over in Aus a few months ago. He has since been over to England for a holiday and spent a month over here with me. He is already happy to and wants to move over here to be with me. He is able to get the 2 year working holiday visa for the UK no problem as he is under 30 years old and then after those two years together we can apply for a relationship visa for the UK. As we both already know that we will probably continue to stay in the UK after this I have been thinking about getting a long stay visitor visa sublass 600 for 12 months to allow me to spend a year over there in Aus with him first so I can get to meet and know his friends and family as this is important for both of us and also so he can save some money (he has his own business and his earning potential is much better over in Aus than it is over in the UK). I have already lived and worked in Australia for 1 year 5 years ago on a working holiday visa for under 30's so that is not an option. My questions are for anyone who has applied or knows about this visa are: 1. How much does it cost for the 12 month subclass 600 visitor visa? 2. How long does it take to be processed/granted? 3. Once the visa is granted do you have a set time you have to enter the country by? Does the visa start once you entry the country? 4. As I will be leaving my job and do not have any financial ties or own property etc etc in the UK how would I prove my promise to return to the UK at the end of the visa? Thanks so much!
  9. Respected Readers, I'm new here & helpless as just few day ago i got my visitor visa refusal letter. i need help as i'm planning to re-apply ASAP. I've posted refusal letter and explained my case briefly below and need help & suggestion from you in reapplying for visa. First of all apology to write a lengthy case below but please be patient, read it and your any help & suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thanks. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Refusal Letter : {{{{{{Reasons I have assessed the applicant(s)’ application and the reasons for my decision are detailed below. The applicant(s) have made an application for a Class FA, Subclass 600 - Visitor (Business Visitor Stream) visa. Under the migration law, a visa cannot be granted unless the applicant meets the relevant legal requirements that are specified in the Act and the Regulations. The applicant(s) in this case do not meet the legal requirement in clause 600.211 in Schedule 2 of the Regulations on the date I made my decision. Clause 600.211 states that: ‘The applicant genuinely intends to stay temporarily in Australia for the purpose for which the visa is granted...’ In assessing whether you genuinely intend to stay temporarily in Australia, I have considered the following guidelines from the department’s Procedural Advice Manual (PAM3): GenGuide H: Section 7.2: Assessing whether the applicant meets the genuine visitor requirement In establishing whether this criterion is satisfied, relevant considerations may include, but are not limited to: - the personal circumstances of the applicant that would encourage them to return to their home country at the end of the proposed visit - the applicant's immigration history (for example, previous travel, compliance with immigration laws of Australia or other countries, previous visa applications/compliance action) - the personal circumstances of the applicant in their home country that might encourage them to remain in Australia (for example, military service commitments, economic situation, civil disruption) - conditions that might encourage the applicant to remain in Australia - the applicant's credibility in terms of character and conduct (for example, false and misleading information provided with visa application) - whether the purpose and proposed duration of the applicant's visit and their proposed activities in Australia are reasonable and consistent (for example, is the period of stay consistent with "tourism") Generally, offers of support or guarantees provided by individuals or organisations (in Australia or in India) are not sufficient evidence of a genuine visit. The onus is on the applicant to satisfy the decision-maker that he or she intends a genuine business visit to Australia. From the information provided I note you are unemployed. In support of your application you have provided evidence of your funds available to you. I do not consider your employment or economic situation, based upon information contained in statistical, intelligence and analysis on immigration non-compliance to constitute sufficient incentives to return necessary to induce a genuine visit. I have considered the level of support provided by your father however it cannot be the sole reason for approving a visa and the onus is on the applicant to satisfy the decision maker that they have sufficient incentives to return to their usual country of residence. I am therefore not satisfied that you genuinely intend to stay temporarily in Australia. I therefore refuse your visa }}}}}}} ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My Case in Brief : I'm a doctor. i've applied visitor visa & was going to join classes of clinical preparation course held in melbourne for 10 weeks which is helpful for australian medical council (AMC) exam. so i've applied for visa in 1st week of march 2017 with following documents : - Certified copy of Current & Old Passport. - Invitation letter (i got by classes stating that class starting from 10th april) - My 2 saving bank statment (total of 2 bank statment was about $16,000 AUD) - My cover letter (just stating that i want to go for classes & i'll be back as it finish & i have my funds and also father is supporting me) - Father's Bank statment (About $10,000 AUD) - Father's Sponsor letter (stating if there is crisis in fund while my travelling then he will support) - Job Experience letter (from 2015 to feb 2017 as i've lodged file in 1st week of march) - Additional education qualification certificates After lots of research on my case and looking other posts i came in conclusion & my mistakes as below : - i've stated unemployed in my form & as i recently quit job temporary in end of feb for my exam preparation and to join classes but this thing i didnt explained in form or in my cover letter that why i'm unemployed. i think thats my mistake that i didnt mentioned or explain in brief in my form or covering letter that this exam prepration is important for me and its not possible to prepare with job so i quit job temporary. - even i didnt attached pay slips, income tax return. i've also didnt attached my father's(sponsor) income tax return documents of fixed assets like property on my father's name who is my sponsor - Also my cover letter was very short and not well organised and didnt explained well in that & my father's sponser letter was also very short and lack of explaination. i think better to attach affidavit of sponsorship in next application. So, this all mistakes i've figured out .. please guide me if any point in my conclusion is missing or incorrect or misleading in my case for my next application. Thanks. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Plan for Re-Application : I'm planning to re-apply soon for tourist visa. In re-application i'm going to enclose following documents : 1. New Invitation Letter from classes which start in july 2. My 2 Saving Bank Account Statments & Credit Card Statments with no due 3. My Income Tax Return 4. My Last 6 month pay slip given by employer as i was getting salary by cash 5. Parents Affidavit of sponsor 6. Parents Income Tax Return 7. Parents Property value report 8. Parents Bank Statments 9. Invoice which i've paid for my classes 10. Doctor's registration of my home country 11. Experience letter from employer 12. One letter by last employer stating that he will hire me again as i finish exam prepration & classes 13. Travel Insurance 14. other educational documents Not in list but most important is COVER LETTER. My queries : 1) Can anyone show sample cover letter for re-applying visa or any suggestions that what should i write on cover letter ? it would be a great help. As many re-applier said that cover letter is very most important part for lodging visa again. If someone like to write a good format/sample of cover letter for re-applying in my case then most welcome. i assure he/she will be rewarded well. 2) Last time my father was only a sponsor but this time i want my mother also to be a sponsor, is it ok? 3) With property value report, is it good idea to make & attach a 'property will' stat that my parents will give me all their property in future? Is this strong & sufficient incintives that i'll back to my home country ? 4) Letter by last employer stating that he will hire me again as i finish exam prepration & classes. & also employer dont have any restriction or objection in hiring me again.... This kind of letter is helpful in evidence of my genuine visit? 5) Is it worth to take travel insurance prior to visa & attach with application? 6) I'm already enclosing new invitation letter for july class so Do i need to attach old invitation letter which i got from my classes in april which i've enclosed in my last application? as april classes already started. Thanks for reading my case . please help me by giving your valuable suggestions & advice in my case. Correct me if i'm doing any mistakes It would really appreciated. Means a lot. Thank you
  10. Hi, I am in need of your help to clarify a few issues my partner and I are facing before applying for the onshore partner migration visa. I am a permanent resident here in Australia. I recently got married in Bangladesh and returned to Sydney with the hope that my wife will join me soon. After my wife's previous marriage ended, we have been dating for quite a while. Few months ago she applied for a visitor visa and stayed here in Sydney for a month. Then we both went back to Bangladesh and got married. After our marriage we went to see a migration agent to talk about the onshore partner visa application process. It was the same migration agent who lodged her visitor visa application. During our visit we discovered that she had miscommunication with the agent and he filled out her marital status as never married instead of divorced during her visitor visa application. To make the matter worse my wife didn't notice the mistake when the agent sent her a final filled up version of the application before submitting it. As her visitor visa is multiple entry and doesn't have a no further stay condition, we are planning that she will come to Australia on her visitor visa and will apply for the onshore partner visa. Now: a. should she submit a form 1023 to correct the wrong information while in Bangladesh or after coming to Australia? b.usually how long DIBP takes to make a decision based on the new information provided in form 1023? c. how much trouble is she going to be in for this mistake she made on the visitor visa application? Will declaring this mistake reduce her chances of getting the partner visa? d. Can you suggest the best way to answer the reason for this mistake? I mean I have already explained the reason for this mistake in this post but is there a better way she can explain herself so that things go in her favor? e. do you have any suggestions regarding the way this issue should be dealt with? Thanks in advance.

  12. Good afternoon, I would like to find an answer concerning my visa and my travel facility. I am currently in Australia and I would like to leave the country for one week in August 2016 and come back until the end of the validity of my visa which is still in effect. My visa expires on the 27th of September 2016. In the section "Entries allowed", it is written : Multiple entries to and from Australia during the validity of your visa. But there is also a note : must not arrive after : 31 October 2015 Is this note is in relation with the stay of period of 12 months from the date of each arrival and does not effect the conditons of my travel facility or does it mean that if I leave the country my visa will be over and I could not be allowed to entry in Australia? I hope that you could answer me about my concern and I would like to thank you in advance for your attention and your reply.
  13. Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to be be granted a 12 month Visitor Visa (Subclass 600) that doesn't have a condition of 3 months at a time / multiple entry? Thank you nina25

    Subclass 600 Visitor Visa

    Hi I am currently working on the subclass 600 visa application, but I am having a lot of doubts about how my process would turn out since I am a permanent resident living in the USA, which my passport is from El Salvador. I am trying to go to Australia in July 2016 for vacations of a month, so my question, does anyone know how the process go is in this case? Another question, I am currently a student, with a low salary, I have been saving money for a long time and, also my boyfriend lives in Australia and he will help with funds while I am over there, so my question is, should i put in my application as self funded or that he will be my sponsor? or how can i prove that i will be able to support my stay over there or that i will be having monetary help to support my expenses over there? I would appreciate anybody's help, Thank you
  15. I'm an Indian passport holder applying for a visitor visa (tourist stream, subclass 600) from USA. The website says "Do not include original documents unless we specifically ask for them." I need to mail a paper application, along with supporting documents to the consulate in Washington DC. Do I need to send my passport to? (or just the signed copies of key passport pages) Thanks Tushar
