Hello aus forum!
I am new, and after searching for information using Google for close to 6 weeks, I have, for the first time stumble app-on your informative forum.

I am totally new to this, and it is really confusing, but I think I'm consuming the informational correctly

My partner/fiance, who is working in Thailand, but is citizen of Philippines, I plan on going to see her again in Thailand, and hopefully bringing along some documents etc. According to what I've read, I will of course need to be in the Philippines with her at the time of application

For the quickest process time to bring her to Australia, seems to be a Fiance Visa? and married within 9 months, does this seem to be the best way to go about it, alternatively, we would marry in the Philippines, but we can always marry once back in Australia. Depending on which is the quickest way.

But she must be able to work once in Australia, so the Fiance Visas seems the best / quickest route?

Hope you can help me, and sorry if I have asked duplicate questions as per other users

Thank you,
Somerandom

Hi and welcome,

If you and your partner haven't lived together for a substantial period of time, and if you have very little evidence of joint living and finances, I think the fiance visa is a good option.

If you are planning on marriage anyway, you could apply for a spouse visa after marriage, but this of course requires more effort preparing as well as more evidence.

It's not a good idea to think of the 'quickest' way, as any of the spouse visas has a number of conditions that have to be met before being granted. And with your partner being from the Phillipines, things could take longer, as this is considered a risky country.

You should expect a minimum of 6 months, maybe up to 9 months. There is no way to speed this up, and although it may take sooner than 6 months, there is no way to find out for sure unti your partner submits her application and DIAC gives you a timeframe.

We don't have any finances or bills together, we do want marriage, so I think I will look into the fiance visa, we understand it can take a long while.. even longer if there's problems processing the papers. I just hope everything goes smoothly

As she works and lives outside of her own country, will this have effect on making it easier for her to come to Australia? or it will have no effect what so ever? as she has passport, etc etc.

thanks again,
Nay
