Hi Everyone, I just had quick question and was wondering if anyone could give me a hand.

I am currently writing a letter of invitation and financial support showing that I will be paying for all of my girlfriend's expenses whilst she is visiting Australia. In the letter I reference that I have enclosed copies of my bank statement and payslips to show evidence of my finances.

My question is should this be included in the same document as the letter, or should they be uploaded as separate documents as part of her visitor visa application?

Also if anything else jumps into anyone's minds in regards to what I could provide any and all help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time and have a great day :)

You need to meet the GTE requirements as per PAM 3 and they are all interpreted differently.

Depending on your intentions the descriptive word Girlfriend may not be your best choice of word.

What passport does she hold and what country does she live?

Many overseas posts insist that visa applicants have access to their own funds, regardless of any financial support they may be receiving in Australia.

"Genuine Visitor" requirements also need to be addressed.

We have tried to cite our reasons for her coming to stay. The holiday is only intended for 1 week and she will be meeting my family while we also go around some tourist sites and she gets to know Australia.

I agree that was poorly worded on my behalf, in the application and my letter I do not refer to her with the word Girlfriend haha, it was more just what came to mind when I was posting this.

She is from the Philippines and holds a Philippines passport.

She will be able to access her own funds and will provide copies of her own payslips and bank statement. Though the hope is if granted I will be covering her expenses.

"Genuine Visitor" requirements also need to be addressed.
In the letter (and in visa application) we do reference that is only a short holiday and that she would be coming to see Australia, go around some tourist attractions, meet my family, and just spend some time here.

You need to include what incentives she has for returning home: employment, assets, family etc.

She is from the Philippines and holds a Philippines passport.

- Same here, I also posted questions before and thanks for those who answer, I'm planning to lodge my application by end of Feb.

Yesterday, I received this from a colleague who has a practice in the Philippines:

Dear Wes, after hundreds of approvals I have got some new dickhead to refuse one.
