Question Hello Everyone, I need some answers please!!!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Christy and I am a United States Citizen. I am in love with an Australian and I have been looking into information about moving to Australia to be with him but, I am a hot mess when it comes to it! Haha.

I was currently there with him *his name is Dave* for 3 months on a ETA Visa. I was there from June 11th, 2011 till September 7th, 2011. It was wonderful being there, and I can not wait to get back to him!!! I am going back there in less then a month!!!!!!! YAY!

BUT, on with my questions....

1. We are going to get married! - How would we go about doing that?! We would lodge Applications for a Partner Visa, correct?

2. With a Partner Visa, would I need to have any medical records done??

3. About how long does it take for them to tell me if I'm granted the visa??

4. If I come back over there on my ETA Visa that I have (it expires June 12, 2012), and Dave and I get married and Lodge the Partner Visa, will I have to come back to the States OR can I continue staying in Australia and not get in trouble with the law?

I hope that I made sense (some what) in the questions that I'm trying to ask..... I've been looking and looking and looking at heaps of different websites and really haven't gotten any of my questions answered!


Thank you very much, Christy ♥

Hi Christy,

- check your ETA visa condition
- if there is no restriction you can just lodge your application in Aus together with supporting documents (marriage certificate,police clearance..etc)

-make sure you submit your application before your current visa expires (at least 2-3 weeks prior)

Once the Immigration office received your application, you will be given Bridging visa A which will allows you to remain in Australia with your partner/husband while your application is being processed.

*You will not required to undertake a health check unless requested to do so.

Hope this helps..but it is advisable to contact the Immi and check with them all the details
