Hi!

I have two questions, hoping someone here might want to share their thoughts on them.

1) I'm wondering whether having a tourist visa (eVisitor 651) refused will have a negative impact on a future partner visa 820 application? Say for example the tourist visa was refused because they didn't consider me a genuine tourist (because they thought I would stay in Australia).

On the partner visa info-site it says that you might not be eligible for a partner visa if you've had a visa cancelled or refused while in Australia, so I'm trying to figure out whether it has less of an impact on a partner visa application if the refusal was for a visa lodged outside of Australia.

2) If I should get a refusal on my tourist visa 651 application, would that have any consequenses for the visa that I currently hold (a tourist visa 600) or would that still be ok to enter Australia on?

Thanks in advance, appreciate any advise!

No and no.

Only bad thing is the refusals need to be declared for life for many visa applications for many countries .

Thanks for your answer ampk!

Just to be sure; you're saying "no, a refusal of a tourist visa will not have a negative impact on partner visa application" and "no, a refusal on my 651 application would not affect the status of my active tourist visa 600"?

I also forgot to add this question to the thread: does anyone know whether the eVisitor visa 651 can come with the condition "No further stay"?

Correct it wont affect a 820 or 309 application (had a few like 6 refused) and no current visa stays in force in a application is refused.

Years ago I heard one claim of a electronic visa having that condition on this forum, but it was never confirmed. My understanding and it was the ETA is that it can not be issued with that condition.

Ok, thanks ampk. So you're pretty sure that neither the eVisitor or ETA can come with the NFS condition if I understand you correct. That's what I've understood from rumours before, but I've never had it confirmed by DIBP.

Mania, thanks for you reply. I was thinking that the reason of not being a genuine tourist might not have a negative effect on a partner visa application, as this would actually mean you acknowledge that you need a more substantial visa for your purpose? But that's just me speculating.

As I said only ever one claim that it was imposed, not verified and not within the grant of a condition that can be imposed.

If you get a ETA and I assume the eVisitor (but you must confirm, they are basically the same) you can bet left testy you will not have that condition.

" Say for example the tourist visa was refused because they didn't consider me a genuine tourist (because they thought I would stay in Australia). "

If this is the only example that you are worried about then no it's not a major issue.

ETA's don't get NFS
