Thank you for your good wishes jamesmrichardson,

I have another question, you know the subclass 600 (tourist stream) has a limit of staying no more than 12 months within 18 months period. If your wife wants to apply for another subclass 600 (tourist stream) after she left Australia, I would assume she will need to wait for 6 months, is this correct? What about people applying under the sponsored family stream, does it have the same time limit? Or can they just keep applying under the sponsored family stream each time after they left Australia?

Thanks a lot!

I am not exactly sure at all really. But someone here would know.

My wife is here also on the Visitor visa (subclass 600) Sponsored Family Stream. (Visa class / subclass FA / 600)

But from just reading on this forum it's not advisable to keep applying for visit visa sponsored over and over because it starts to look like the person is living here when the visa is just meant to be for a "visit". I've read it's advisable if the person wants to be here more permanently rather than coming and going over and over they should be applying for a more permanent visa like partner.

Someone here I'm sure is more clued up on your question and will be more helpful for time limits etc

Thanks a lot James,

No, we wouldn't use the 600 forever. Our plan is to get my wife here first and gather the 309 evidence and then go back to China to put in the 309. Afterward, as you can tell, we don't want to be apart again so we will just apply one more time for the 600 so we can be together whilst waiting for the 309. This is why I would like to know whether there is any waiting time imposed to the 600 - sponsored family stream.

If your 600 doesn't have a "no further stay" clause, why would you go offshore to China and apply from there? You can just apply onshore for a Partner Visa. Sure, it's a little more expensive, but any cost savings the 309 offers would be eaten up by the flights back and forth anyway.

Thanks CG, I too would also hope that we can get a no "No further stay"! Despite that, we may still have the "must not stay after visa expiry". If we don't comply, we will lose the security bond and I will be banned for 5 years before I can sponsored again.

There will also be complications applying onshore. I heard some people are not able to leave OZ and stuck here whilst waiting for the 309. We don't want these complications.

Mish..

When I applied for a visit visa for my wife I think it was family sponsored? Can you tell by this grant thing here (edited a little) the part

Visitor (Class FA) - That means "Family"? Or it's going by the regular subclass stream "Tourist".

When we applied I thought it was sponsored family as I was a sponsor with my documents provided pay slips, bank statement, 2 stat decs from my family in Australia (We applied from Morocco).

Just curious to know. Even though I should know already, but I don't.

It is just a normal tourist visa. Sponsored visitor visa's are processed in Australia.
