    Hi Chnaveedakhtar -

    My suggestion: don't depend on the visa application fee as evidence of your intent to return to Australia, since once the visa is granted there is no requirement to live in Australia. Money can be transferred easily between countries - again, not evidence of an impending move to Australia.

    Hi Chnaveedakhtar -

    Thanks for the note. While it is not mandatory for the sponsor to be present in Australia to apply for a 309/100 visa for an applicant, it IS mandatory that the sponsor be "usually resident" in Australia if the sponsor is an Australian permanent resident. This means that the sponsor calls Australia home, or has a home or will very soon have a home in Australia (ie, showing preparations to return). it doesn't mean that the only home of the sponsor must be in Australia, but does mean that one of the primary or regularly used homes (by the sponsor) must be in Australia. If you have only been in Australia for 3 days since you were granted your PR, I expect you may have a problem looming as I don't see how you could claim that you were usually resident in Australia given only 3 days in 2 years spent in Australia. You may want to seek professional assistance in determining ways you could meet this requirement.

    Hope this helps -


    Mark Northam
