Does anyone else have DP as there case officer? The last approval we saw of theirs was a while back and there application was approved at 9 month. We are now just over 10 and no news and no response to our email regarding police check expiring in 16 days. I have seen loads of people on here and other sites who go to Aus on a tourist visa whilst they wait for there grant, my OH and I have always said that we would wait for her visa to come before making any moves but I have been offered a position with my old firm which includes an onsite house and Bills included. So my question is should we risk it and go on a tourist visa, has anyone ever risked it and not got granted and if so what is the process if your already there.

The issue with doing this is you need to prove your there for genuine tourist reasons. If they suspected you were coming to live prior to getting your permanent visa they could deport you and you'd then have to wait 3 years before you could apply to enter australia again.
