Hi everyone im a newbieHi

Hello my name is John and i am and Australian Citizen and living in the Philippines for almost 3 years and looking to go back home to Australia with my Filipina wife and 2 beautiful kids. I got married here in the Philippines in August 2014 and now my plan is to try and bring my wife and kids to Australia by Christmas 2016. My son is an Australia Citizen by descent and Australian Passport holder and i am currently processing an Australian citizenship by descent for my daughter.

I have some questions to ask and hopefully members of this forum can provide myself with some answers or at least shed some light on my situation.

I like to bring my family to Australia as tourists as it will be a more easier process than applying for PR straight away as i have a long waiting period according to VFS Global Services, Is it possible to do it this way then once my family is there in Australia to apply for the 820/801 forms ?

Or will it just be better to try and apply here for a Temporary Visa and wait it out even if it is more than 12 months ?

Please help myself to provide some answers and look forward to chatting with you all.

Thanks

You appear to have two options:

Apply for a Visitor Visa for your wife, and hope it does not have the "No Further Stay Condition". That way she can apply for the Onshore Partner Visa, once she arrives.
It isn't very expensive to try that, but the likelihood of having that restriction is high.

Apply for the offshore Partner Visa, then apply for a 12 month visitor visa, so she can wait out the stay in Australia. Hopefully she will get that.
The Philippines appears pretty relaxed after a partner visa has been applied for.

Just get the daughters citizenship done ASAP.

No Further Stay Condition

If it was me I would probably try the Visitor Visa first, but expect to waste the cost on the gamble.
