I'm currently in the process of helping my Thai girlfriend fill up her application form 1419 for a tourist visa to Australia. I myself am not an Australian resident/citizen, and will be travelling to Australia with her together for a short holiday (I'm from Singapore) as tourists. There are a few questions I need some assistance with as I'm not sure how to indicate that we will be travelling together as a couple.
- For Part B qn 24 (Family travelling to Australia with you), do I indicate that I'll be travelling with her as her boyfriend? Or is "boyfriend" not a recognized family status?
- For Part C qn 25 (Family NOT travelling to Australia with you), the question asks if you have a partner, children or fiancee not travelling with you. Do I therefor include her immediate family members like mom/dad? We wish to show that she has immediate family members in Thailand and fully intend to return home.
- For Part H qn 41 (Funding for stay), I'll be indicating that I'm providing financial support for our trip. Am I supposed to fill up my local address under "Their address while you are in Australia" or do I fill up the address of the hotel we intend to stay at?
- For Part J (Assistance with this form), must I indicate that I have given assistance to my girlfriend in filling up the form? Or is it ok to just say she did it herself, which she is fully capable of.
