New application

Hi everyone,

Alison here. I am about to sponsor Aaron, my American Partner of 2 years to come to Oz. The process seems a bit of a mine field so do you think an Immigration Agent is necessary?

It depends. If your situation is straight forward and you're willing to take the time to do the research, then it's fairly easy to do it yourself.

Welcome Ali29

Seriously Skybluebrewer. Easy is not a word I would use to describe the process!

There are so many steps but a determined applicant and sponsor can do it.

There are so many forms and then documents to upload and now biometrics such as digital photographs and fingerprints in the applicants country if offshore

This forum has definitely been very helpful

If we start by applying offshore (309/100) then he comes to Australia and stays, can we change the visa over to an 820/801or does it have to be a brand new application?

You can't change it. If you apply for the 309/100, there's no bridging visa so he'd need a valid visa to come to Australia if the 309 hasn't been granted yet. If he wants to make an onshore application, that means doing it all over again and paying a new fee.

Thank you.

I am not sure which Visa to apply for: 309, 820 or PMV. Which ones allows him to work AND get Medicare?

300 = Full work rights, no Medicare until 820/801 lodged
309 = Full work rights, Medicare
820 = Full work rights, Medicare

If you're asking about work rights and Medicare while waiting for a decision, then that's the onshore 820/801. He needs to get onshore on a valid visa without the no further stay condition to be able to apply. Once applied, a BVA is automatically granted but isn't in effect until the current visa he's on ceases. So unless the visa he enters on has work rights, he won't be able to work until the BVA goes into effect or the 820 is granted, whichever is first.

He has visited several times over the past two years on an ETA visa without any issues. No mention of a "no further stay" provision.
We a a little concerned that should he need to travel back and forth to the USA it may be problematic should we apply for the 820.
With the PMV is travel restricted?

Not sure what you're asking. The 300 is an offshore visa. Once granted, he can go to and from Oz as much as he likes within the 9 month period. But once the 309 or 820 are granted he can go in and out freely as well.
