Question Spouse of New Zealand citizen immigrating to Australia

Hi All,

I am a spouse of New Zealand citizen and right now we are living in India.We got married around 2 yrs ago. Now my husband is planning to move to Australia.

As per the plan my husband will move to Australia in April and will call me over as soon as he will get a job. So as per my research we we need to apply for New Zealand Citizen Family Relationship(Temporary)(subclass 461) for australia for me. Is this the right kind of visa we need to apply?

Therefore, I would like to confirm, how much time it will approximately take to process the visa and what are the necessary steps ?

Can my husband apply the visa from Australia or can I go on visitor visa and can then apply for spouse visa from Australia. I would appreciate your advice.

Yes, the 461 would be the logical visa. Keep in mind that this is a temporary visa so you need to re-apply every 5 years. You won't qualify for Medicare or government benefits. If your husband can find sponsorship or has an occupation that would make him eligible for a permanent visa, that's worth investigating since it would give you far more flexibility and stability.

At the moment, the 461 visa seems to take approx. 6 months. I don't know the exact steps, but if you review the information on the DIBP website and look for related threads on this forum, you should hopefully find what you need to know. You can apply for this visa either offshore or onshore (if you come on a visitor visa, you can only apply onshore if your visitor visa does NOT have a No Further Stay Condition).

Hi
U got all relevant info from maggie. But make sure u submitted all supportive evidences at the time of application. 50-80 photos, affidavits from family, relatives, family friends. If possible get 888 form or stat declaration from aussie PR or citizens.
Also add ur communication details. Ur trips togather, wts app chat, facebook updates, viber or skype etc. make a complete full detailed urs history of relationship.
I got my refusal last year from AHC new delhi.. Even that time my relationship was also 2 years old. But sick CO refused my application without request any further clarification.
NOTE- no worries about health insurance at the time of application. Ur CO will suggest u at the time of decision.
Any confusion PM me..

Its been 6 months since i applied for 461 visa @ New delhi. So i guess current wait time is around 7 - 8 months easy. So far haven't received any sort of email or phone call from case officer.

Hi Letzblaze,

I just wanted to check with you that have you applied for the visa via consultant or yourself. My husband is still looking for a job in australia so I am not sure that we should apply for the visa now or wait for him to get a job.

Have you visited Australia on a visitor visa in between these 6 months ?

Question

Hi All,

Can anyone please help me with the following questions:

1) My husband is still looking for a job in australia so I am not sure that I should apply for the visa now or wait for him to get a job. Can you me some idea about it ?

2) Do we both need the Police clearance certificate ?

3) We had a joint account but not enough savings in that account. Do we need to add any other property documents or other bank accounts statements.

4) Can I apply for visitor visa and travel to australia after submitting the subclass 461?

Hi
U can apply anytime no need to wait for his job..

-only u need PCC.

-joint bank account is enough but if u can provide details of ur property under ur both name it can be a good evidence. Try to submit heaps of documents of ur relationship.

- 461 visa processing time is 5-6 mnths as per AHC new delhi. U can apply for visitors visa as well but u need other documnt for as per visit visa requirements. ur hubby is jobless so can't sponsor. U'll hve to provide the funds..
