Thanks,

Good luck to all who are at the final stage and wish that your waiting will be over soon!!
Hi

Have you applied for your visitor visa if No I think there is a section there that they ask you if you have applied for any other visa to Australia. Yes you can fill the regular form but you can also write an e.mail to your case officer stating your intent to travel on a holiday visa the dates and your visa no if you have one and your date of return..

Hope this helps

J.D

Hi J.D

Yes I applied for a tourist visa after 2 weeks of the partner visa application. It was granted within a week.

Thank you so much for the reply.

Congratulations and best wishes for the new life in Australia

Congrats & all the best with your travel. may I ask did you apply under the category of family-sponsored visitor visa?

Thanks
Sam

Hi Sam!

No it's not family sponsored. .... l filled the online form 1419
I got 1 year, multiple entries (which I requested), 3months maximum stay..... they did not impose 'No further stay' condition this time. (This is my 3rd tourist visa)

Cheers!
Mpink

Cheers thanks for the info Mpink. would you consider applying for visitor visa under the tourist stream beneficial over the family-sponsored stream (while waiting for 309 partner visa to be processed)? .. I hear tourist stream visas get processed pretty quickly compared to family-sponsored.

if i understand correctly your visa means you can enter australia as many times as you like, as long as each visit does not exceed 3 months. is that right?.. is there a wait period imposed between visits or can you leave australia and come back, like the very next day for example?

I think the tourist stream is the fastest and easiest if you could show them that you have ties to your home country to go back for.... and also the main purpose of visit is for holiday, visit family and friends, tour around Australia. ...bla..bla...bla....
Having applied for the partner visa is a plus point....but don't forget to meet all the requirements of the tourist visa
I would always prefer to go with the tourist stream.
Yes you are correct . I can enter many times as I wish. There's no specific waiting period between entries. Last year i traveled out of Australia and re entered after 7 days. I was not questioned. But i had my return ticket to SL in couple of weeks time.

Hope this helps. ...

thank you very much for the valuable info. yes the family sponsored stream seems to be a rather cumbersome one with a longer wait period and still no guarantee for a grant longer than 3 months.

we may go with the tourism stream as that might allow us to travel together to Australia. lets see how it goes..

All the best!
