  1. @Electric Sheep and @Ace09 please keep it civil guys. Ace09 the sponsor must be the partner who is an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident. You may be confused about when assurances of support (AoS) were required for partners that did not meet the financial requirements. However, these are no longer required for partner visas. To avoid any confusion the sponsor must be the partner who is an eligible Australian citizen of Australian permanent resident.
  2. As soon as you submit the application online you will have a transaction reference number (TFN). You can then do the sponsorship straight away. With regards to the Form 888 I would recommend doing it again.
  3. Sorry to hear about your loss to these scammers. How did you make payment to them?
  4. I was just looking at an old Form 990i (IMMI fees and Charges). In 2007 the offshore partner visa fee and PMV was $1390 and the onshore was $2060. There was no fee for additional applicants. Just to put this into perspective if a person applied for an offshore partner visa in 2007 and it included one additional applicant under 18, the fee was $1390. That fee today would be $9650. An increase of 595%. Average of 55% per annum.
  5. So if you want to visit a country like the US you need to get a scholarship, seems like a lot of hard work to me. What if you just want to go for a 2 week holiday?
  6. It's really quite simple. All he needs to do is live in Australia for the next 4 years and during this time spend no more than 12 months outside of Australia during this time, including not more than 90 days in the 12 months proceeding his date of citizenship application. If he can't satisfy the above, then perhaps he may never become a citizen. I'm with you AFV I think he want's Australian citizenship desperately now because of the opportunities it opens up, and those aren't the one's that come from living in Australia.
  7. Another interesting judgement too Binno and Comcare (Compensation) [2019] AATA 237 (27 February 2019)
  8. Work is performing an activity in Australia a person would normally be remunerated for. This could be payment or some other form of reward. These activities are not considered work: volunteering doing work online for your job in your home country However as AFV has said the online work should be incidental to a holiday in Australia.
  9. You really need to rethink your entire strategy here. In my opinion you are making the case for the respondent in both matters, why the time extension should not be granted, and the chances of success of your substantive matter. If you examined any case law in relation to these issues. If you do, you will see you are way off the mark. Why don't you get a professional legal opinion?
  10. Good idea. All done, including links in your post. Thanks for the tip.
  11. Update: Since we posted about this online Australian visa scam yesterday, it would seem that the web hosting company have done the right thing and suspended the account of Genuine Visa Travels Limited. It was of no surprise to learn that this website was being hosted in Nigeria.
  12. Although the visa is multiple entry. Just be aware that departing Australia and returning immediately can arouse suspicions as to whether the visa holders intention it still to visit Australia as a genuine temporary entrant only.
