  1. You may marry or enter a defacto with the same person who is defined on the PMV. I am sorry that my English speaking is not being the perfect, or constitutes some inaccuracy. Why are you so afraid?
  2. IMMI are reasonable people, as are all Australians. Provide what information you can, and highlight the dates you can not be accurate over. If you dont know, or cant remember then state such. To forget is HUman, to make shit up is a crime. IMMI has access to most of the travel data, but they like you to jump through hoops. Stop stressing, just do your best.
  3. OK, understood. Usually Migration Visa's such as the 309 expect you to land in Australia within 12-18 months from the date of the Visa grant. It varies, and can be extended with plausible reason. But not for say 5 years. As you planning nearly 5 years hence, you could certainly wait until your plans are closer. I can only comment based on today's laws and policies, a lot can change in 5 years. What I can promise is that it will cost a whole lot more in 5 years 😉
  4. Firstly, you must hold a passport from the approved list, here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/work-holiday-462/first-work-holiday-462#Eligibility What is your nationality?
  5. As per IMMI website: IMMI process: 75% of applications in 25 days. 90% of applications in 48 days. You not even inside the first band. Patience.
  6. M/E Business Visa's are available, see Subclass 188. These are 4 years 3 month Visa's. But you need to qualify and have the $$$
  7. I think you should re-read my post before venting. Nightcall explains it better. Secondly, name calling and childish insults add nothing to your credibility.
  8. Your swearing contributes nothing. Please stop.
  9. All your answers are here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/partner-offshore/provisional-309#HowTo Your husbands location should not make any difference to an offshore application. As long as he meets the criteria as defined on the website above. So yes apply now, I can not see any advantage in you waiting. See the link https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/partner-offshore/provisional-309#HowTo As long as Hubby is an Aussie citizen then his long time offshore will not have an effect. Agents fees, all I can say is shop around and check their references. You don't need an agent if you are both reasonably literate in English and understand the application process. Using an agent is no guarantee, but they often help to avoid common mistakes when applying. I see the range of 50% to 200% of the IMMI application fee as being a guide to the agents fee. Your sounds a simple case, so I would hope it would be to the lower end.
  10. Just make sure the two statements align on key dates and events.
  11. Start here for your two sons. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/become-a-citizen/by-descent Its a straight forward process and all you need is full birth certificates for the boys, and your proof of AU citizenship. Do the paperwork, pay the $$, easy 🙂 I respect and admire your wishes for your sons to embrace their Indigenous Australian heritage.
  12. @ralexanderPlease be accurate. You can only apply for an extension/renewal/etc ON-SHORE if the current visa DOES NOT have a Condition 8503 applied.
  13. You can apply for an extension ON-SHORE, providing that your current VV does NOT HAVE condition 8503 (No further stay) applied. If it has condition 8503, then you MUST leave at the end of the first visa. If you must apply offshore, then you can re-apply for a new VV the day you leave Australia. Check for a 8503.
