  2. Hi all I have just had my wives partner visa application denied after three years of waiting. it was denied because we were unable to get a police clearance from china, where we met and married. the document is only available to people who have held work or student visas in china, my wife only ever held tourist visas. the fact that these police clearances were not available to anyone on a tourist visa is stated on the Australian consulate website in beijing as well as the chinese consulate website, so its common knowledge, which I pointed out to our case manager but for some reason this wasn't enough. we went around in circles for 18 months over this document alone. we supplied everything they requested including police clearances from Australia and the Philippines (my wives home country) at the time of lodging our application the waiting time was 13 months on average to finalise the visa, but our application wasn't even looked at until 16 months after we lodged, which we received an apology but no reason for this. we were routinely asked to supply documents which we would and then hear nothing for months until I would call them and they would say they were still waiting for the documents, I would tell them they were sent months ago and they would sound confused and then apologise when the realised they had them. it seemed like they had no idea what was going on and did nothing with our application until we would call them. we had around 5 different case managers in 3 years. my wife and I met when I was working in china and married in hong kong 2 years later. we had been married for 18 months before we returned to Australia to give birth to our son and apply for a spouse visa. I assumed our application would be fairly straight forward considering our history and the fact that we have a child born in Australia. I got the ombudsman involved 6 months ago because the whole issue with the chinese police clearance was getting ridiculous and we were going in circles for 18 months alone over it. I don't think if my wife held a US or British passport we would have had this much trouble. can anyone offer any advise on what we can do now? i don't want to appeal as we can't afford to now
  3. Hi, wondering if you can help as struggling to get a definitive answer!! Me and my girlfriend (have been together for 9 years) are moving to Brisbane in the coming months. So me (coming on a 482 visa. PRETTY MUCH GUARANTEED) But my girlfriend (11 year healthcare assistant) can’t get sponsorship so looking at available options! So the best option would be her coming on mine as a dependant, we don’t live together or save money together BUT in a fully committed relationship and can prove all other areas of the relationship (social & pictures, bookings, declarations) So as you can tell the main area of the de facto relationship is living together with letters which we don’t have. The main advice given is that she gets a working holiday visa, then when we arrive - set up tenancy together, set up joint savings and current account and register in a committed relationship officially with the government. NOW we have been told that after 6 months, then she can go on my visa (this is with the understanding that my company will do this on my visa) Can you please really help me and confirm if this is correct and obviously if there is a simpler or quicker/easier option???? Thank you so much! Rob
  4. Hi folks! could anybody please tell me how to go about the renewal of a 461 Visa? I mean, do I have to lodge the whole application one more time, or are there any easier, shorter ways that I just didn't see? Thank you
  5. I am currently on a working holiday visa from the UK and work for a big company who have different clinics all over Sydney (where I live), Melbourne and Brisbane. I have worked in one location for 4 months but really want to stay longer as my partner is hopefully getting sponsored in a few months. I have read that I can work for the same employer but in a different location but I’d like some clarification. Does this mean a different franchise? Or could I still work for my current company but literally move to a different clinic within Sydney? It’s not very clear online and I’d love any help! Our sponsorship will probably happen in a couple of months and I want to stay in this job for the next few years but I don’t want to breach my visa conditions. Thanks!
  6. Hi Friends, I need your help with what visa to apply for my partner. I am an Australian citizen and she is Nepalese. We first met in 2014 in Sydney where we studied together. She went back home in 2016 as her visa expired and she couldn't complete her points. We have been to Thailand tour in 2018 and I visited Nepal early last year where we got engaged. We have loads of pictures and conversations together since the time we met. Unfortunately, when she was here we do not have any shared expenses like House rent and bills as she stayed with her cousins. We plan to get married this December in Nepal and I want her to be with me in my return back to Sydney. A few options that I could think of are as follows: 1) Apply for a Prospective Marriage Visa and do a court marriage within the 9 month time period. However, I am unsure if she would get her visa by this December when we plan to marry in Nepal.. 2) Marry in December and she travels with me here on Tourist Visa. Once she is here we do a court marriage and apply for Partner visa so she can go into Bridging and continue staying here.. I am just confused and would appreciate some help. Thank You!
  7. Hi All, My brother [PR holder] and I [citizen of Australia] have been living in Australia for well over 10 years along with our families. My brother and I are the only children for my parents. We are from an Indian origin. 3 years ago my dad passed away. After this, we were bringing our mother to Australia on a Visitor Visa in the hope that she could spend sometime with us and the remaining time in India. This worked ok for us for 2 years. This year we have taken the decision that it is best if mom spends a more significant time with us rather than in India. I have been reading various forums and the immigration wesbsite and noted that as a first step prior to any long term visa solution, I would have to apply for removal of Condition 8503 - NO FURTHER STAY. Assuming, I am successful, with this, I would like to apply for a visa that gives mother the freedom to stay with us as long as she wishes without any travel restrictions [Her current Visitor visa has condition 8558 - MAXIMUM 12 MONTHS STAY IN 18 MONTHS ]. Below are some of the visa options I have with me. I would like to seek advice on which of the below visa options I should choose and any pros or cons: - Contributory parent visa (subclass 143) - Remaining Relative visa (subclass 115) - Parent visa (subclass 103) - Aged Parent visa (subclass 804) - Remaining Relative visa (subclass 835) - Contributory Aged Parent visa (subclass 864) PS: My mother's age is 64. Appreicate your feedbacks and responses. Thanks, Satish
  8. I am a regular contributor, and I find myself repeating the same advice over and over again. Which is OK because I like the sound of my own voice ;-) All the posts here detail what you SHOULD do. As something different, I will detail what NOT to do. This is based on many years investigating Immigration Fraud cases, it applies to Visitor, Partner and most other visa's. When you make a visa application, DO NOT.. Lie or tell half truths. Withhold important information that is on public record (i.e you have a criminal history). Honesty may prove you have learnt your lesson and can now be trusted? Claim something you cant prove. Everything you state must be able to be proved through paperwork. A job without proper pay records is probably fake. Ring the embassy or High Commissioner demanding priority. Send abusive emails to your case worker Criticise your case worker by name in a public forum (yes DIBP read all this) Complain about the fees. Australia ain't cheap If you want to prove a Defacto you must prove 12 months relationship, NOT 11 months and 2 weeks. Include erroneous photos without explaining why the are relevant. Unsubstantiated Photos mean nothing, they are easily faked. If you include Statements from someone as your relationship or circumstances, make sure they can be contacted by DIBP. Yes they do check. Ask for a statement from someone who cant prove that they were in same country as you 12 months ago. Visa, Passport stamp, airline ticket. Think you are special, important or high priority. In Australia, we are all equal. Look up Tall Poppy Syndrome. Expect DIBP to see into your heart, regardless of how much love you feel, HARD proof is best. No amount of love will replace hard facts and proof. Expect to get around a medical. Medicals are mandatory, relax they are not complicated, providing you are healthy. Complain about long waiting times, especially if your application is from a high risk country, they will take longer. Expect to come here and get medicare and welfare the day you arrive. Come here to build a life and work hard. Questions like "how soon can I get medicare, or welfare" do not look good Try to avoid or fake Police checks. They are VERY important to DIBP, what you may think is minor thing, DIBP may consider an issue. If you have a police history, tell them. Hiding things like that will only hurt your application. Try to fake that your relationship has been for a long time, when it has not. If the relationship is true, and genuine then all is good. If its fake and not real, save your money, DIBP will catch you out. Send anything in a foreign language, Everything must be translated (by a certified translator), regardless what some hokey local website or friend of your mother says is ok., (Exception is some EU and Russian missions will accept local language docs, check first). Thinks you are being victimised or discriminated against. Trust me, DIBP do not care about ladyboys, same sex unions, age gaps, religion, or how many times married. So dont make it an issue. "DIBP rejected my PV because I am a gay, transgender, muslim, divorcee" Bullshit. The Australian Public Service pride themselves on their impartiality. Expect a visa if either of are not of good character, including the sponsor. Especially if there is a child involved. Good Character is a complex term, but most get the idea. Think visa fees have a guarantee. Yes the PV is very expensive, and there are no guarantees. If in doubt DONT APPLY. DIBP is not an Apple Store. Try to fake a relationsip. Any genuine relationship will have evidence to prove such. No evidence, its probably not genuine. Be impatient. DONT be in a hurry. Patience. And NO DIBP do not make you wait as a test. PLAN ahead, DIBP like people who plan holidays well in advance. Get married, or have a baby thinking it will get you special treatment or a fast track. Think that you father/uncle/brother as a famous proctologist/businessman/politician gives you status. It means nothing. Its about you and your partner. Provide fake documents, statements, payslips, company certificates, letters etc etc etc. They are usually spotted immediately. Just one lie and your probably will be rejected. Understand this, TRUTH on your application is more important than ANY other aspect. Use or pay a NON licensed immigration agent. All registered agents with DIBP are listed on the Australian Embassy Websites. Believe sites like www.easyaussievisa.com, they are usually full of lies and old information. Believe the information on the TRUE www.dibp.gov.au website. Believe anyone who says they have a friend at the AU embassy, and can get you fast tracked. Judge Australian society, standards and culture by your own. What may be normal in your homeland maybe either illegal or unacceptable in Australia. The opposite also applies. Disrespect or treat any Immigration of DIBP staff member poorly. They have a hard job. While on this forum, Don't demand answers, we are volunteers Don't get narky because we may have not observed you own customs, trust me we are observing ours. Don't demand rapid answers, we all have other real lives, we do our best Read, read and read more. 99% of all questions have been answered before. So excuse us if we get testy when repeating the same advice for the 1200th time ;-)

  10. We applied late August 2015 for a PM 300 visa through the IMMI website Manila office. Apart from the acknowledgement email, we've heard nothing. Is anyone else in a similar position? I am a Aussie citizen living here permanently.
  11. My wife is in the process of getting the Partner 820/801 VISA, she has 820 and is now waiting for 801. My question is can I (the husband) apply for a Japanese partner visa and this won't cause problems with my wife visa.
  12. Hi all, Can someone give me a list of exact tests that are conducted in the medical assessment conducted by Bupa? Are bloods taken? X-Rays, mri scans, ultrasounds, swabs or other things etc? Also, how is the general medical assessment experience? Are they trying to look for something wrong with you so they can refuse your visa? Or are they highly professional etc Look forward to hearing from you and those (or their partner) who have been through this. I am so glad there is a community here, it makes me feel better. Thanks again.

  15. Hi guys!!I am the sponsor while my fiance (applicant) is living in the Philippines. We have met in person but majority of our relationship was long distance. We are so close to gathering all our documents and requirements, and we are planning to lodge our application in March 2019. I just have a few concerns and would appreciate some advice! ♥ ♥- quick relationship background - * We first met as friends in 2011 at our high school.I migrated to Australia in 2013, and our relationship started/developed when I reunited with him when I went on a vacation to the Philippines in Feb 2017. (This was the only time in 2017 where we were physically together, for around 2 weeks only)* Ever since I went back to Aus in March 2017, we have remained in contact and continued our relationship. We started talking about our future and getting married in Australia constantly throughout 2017 to present. QUESTION 1: Does this count to 'when we got engaged'?? or only when he actually proposed to me with a ring? Is there a certain requirement for how long we are supposed to be engaged for? * I went on a vacation to visit him in the Philippines twice in 2018. (first visit was for almost 2 months, and second visit was for 1 month). We did talk about him getting a tourist visa but he has not yet had the opportunity to visit me in Australia due to college and work (and He has never tried travelling to other countries before, but he got his passport earlier this year) QUESTION 2: Is that going to be an issue to be concerned about? Does he need to visit me in Australia first prior to lodging our visa? * We both met each other's family in 2018.I only have 3 photos together with us with my family, and only 2 photos of us with my fiance’s family. (We met up way more times than this, but we just did not take lots of photos back then when i was in the philippines twice in 2018). As for friends, we also only have 1 photo with our friends in 2018. Our friends are graduating from college and some are working full time, causes a clash in our schedules which is why we didn’t really get the chance to spend more time with our friends (plus we were honestly focused on spending our limited time of being physically together alot more)Will this be an issue of concern? Do I need to provide more photos than this? QUESTION 3: Will this be a problem? Do I need to supply more photos than that? * As of now, I will be visiting him in the Philippines again for a month in mid January 2019, and in February we are going to be travelling together for the first time (and his first time travelling in general) to Singapore for our 2nd Anniversary. * During my time in the Philippines in Jan-February 2019, We are planning to get his medical exams done there in advance and then lodge our visa in March 2019. As for our Notice of Intended Marriage, I am planning to get that done in early January 2019 before I leave Australia to go to the Philippines.QUESTION 4: Will this be okay to get these documents a month prior to lodging our visa? Is it allowed? These are also a list of relationship evidence requirements that I have gathered so far:- 2017 call logs and message history- 2018 call logs and message history- 2017 social media posts- 2018 social media posts- receipts of gifts we gave to each other (with bank transactions)- receipts of our hotel bookings (with bank transactions)- receipts of uber ride histories showing us visiting each other’s houses, going to our hotels, dates, etc (with bank transactions)- timeline of our relationship that shows photos of significant events and joint activities - receipts of times money was sent to fiance through remittance website (with bank transactions)- receipts of our hotel and flight bookings for our trip to singapore in feb 2019. QUESTION 5: in regards to ‘ proof that you and your prospective spouse have met face-to-face as adults since turning 18 and know each other personally’ in our written statement it is mentioned that we met in 2017 when we were 19 years old. What other evidence can I provide for this section? Question 6: in regards to ‘proof that you and your prospective spouse genuinely intend to live as spouses’ We included talking about our plans to live together in our written statements and also included screenshots of chats/messages about this, as well as links of rental properties we both liked that we sent to each other. Question 7: I only have 3 photos together with my fiance and my family, and only 2 photos of me with my fiance’s family. (We met up way more times than this, but we just did not take lots of photos back then when i was in the philippines twice in 2018). As for friends, we also only have 1 photo with our friends in 2018. Our friends are graduating from college and some are working full time, causes a clash in our schedules which is why we didn’t really get the chance to spend more time with our friends (plus we were honestly focused on spending our limited time of being physically together alot more) Will this be an issue of concern? Do I need to provide more photos than this? Question 8: In regards to joint activities, I can only think about including photos of us going on dates. We never travelled anywhere in 2017 and 2018. We have never went on weddings or parties (only one family reunion event). What are other examples of joint activities?? Question 9: In regards to Form 888 Statutory Declarations, I am planning to get 3-4 stat decs to be completed in Jan 2019 (2 months before visa lodgement) is this okay? does it matter when a stat dec is made? Question 10: In regards to fiance’s Form 80 Character assessment.. My Fiance does not hold a bachelor’s degree since he decided to stop his university studies mid 2018 in order to work full time (his first job) to help save for our future and for the visa. Will this affect our application, or give a bad impression ? Question 11: Since philippines is a high risk country, does that mean processing time for our visa will take longer? IM SO SORRY for the long post and the many questions.I am just feeling scared and overwhelmed, only a couple more months until we plan to lodge our visa! We really want to be approved same as everyone else.. We truly appreciate it if you could let us know anything we are missing, any kind of advice, suggestion, or important info!THANK YOU SOOO SO MUCH!!
  16. Hello! For majority of my relationship requirement documents (for Prospective Marriage Visa), I used Microsoft Powerpoint (since I personally found that it is way easier to use in terms of positioning photos and texts compared to Word). I saved them in PDF format, and they are all waayyy over the 5MB limit. I have heard that there are programs and websites that can be used to compress the file size in order to reduce it and make it adhere to the limit.. However Im just worried if it will affect the quality and not make it readable. Please let me know how you handled this? If you've used size compressor websites/programs, how did it go? any suggestions? advice? THANK YOU SOO SO MUCH!!!
  17. I am looking at getting a carer visa What are the details to get a carer visa to bring a girl from overseas to assist with my caring.
  18. Hi Good day to all. I have checked through the topics but there is no relation to ours. We have submitted our prospective visa application last May 2018. We are getting married in September 2018, I currently have tourist visa until 2020. Is it possible to change the application from offshore to onshore? My Fiance' wants me to stay after the wedding. How can we pull this off? I wanted to stay after the wedding and apply bridging visa but we have submitted the application as offshore. Is there a way without making a new application as onshore? Thank you so much!

  21. Since November 2008, I have worked with three companies. I applied for ACS on November 2017. Had joined a new company in October 2017. I provided details for the previous three companies A, B, C for the ACS evaluation. ACS evaluation came in Feb 2018. In the ACS report, my experience start date was given as November 2014. When submitting EOI for 189 category visa, I added the experience of the fourth company D which I am still working with. I have received an invite. I have two doubts: 1) Will the experience of company D, which is not mentioned in the ACS report, considered for the Visa application? 2) Can I provide affidavit/statuary declaration by a senior in the company D? I have Employment Reference letters from all the previous companies. Please help.
  22. Hello, I made a student visa application, I am of French nationality but I do not reside in metropolitan France but on Reunion Island (French department overseas). I received by mail a letter asking me to give my biometric information. The biometric centre is in Paris is more than 9000 km from where I live. In addition, the nearest biometric country is 3000 km away. I first contacted the global service centre which confirmed to me that I had to go to Paris to give my fingerprints. I contacted a second time this one who finally told me that it was not necessary if I resided more than 2000 km from a biometric center and that I had to send a letter explaining my situation. I do not know what to do. Would anyone have an answer to give me? Thank you in advance.
