hey Tazzy

further, I want to say that this forum was a great help. I read almost every related threads before applying for my visas. it was a big help to avoid any mistakes. and also don't forget to read the DIBP and AHC information on their websites.

Do research. Gather information...and then apply

All the best...!

Yes, we definitely have to show them of our intention (strong reasons) to go back before our visa expires.

I have applied 3 times for visitor visa (subclass 600-Tourist stream) and was able to get it without any issues all three times. I provided all requested documents in the tourist visa checklist (downloaded from ----http://srilanka.embassy.gov.au/clmb/Visa_checklists.html) and also some additionals.

these are the documents I provided in addition to the identification docs in the checklist:

1. A cover letter stating my personal and professional background, where I had traveled before, what I'm planning to do in Australia (about places I'm planning to visit with tentative dates, and plans to visit relatives...etc)

2. Letter from the employer stating the designation, service period, salary and the approval for leave. + pay slips of 3 months

3. Assets - my car documents (other than this I didn't have any assets )
4. Bank statements of savings account (with a letter from the bank confirming the balance of approx 1M) and credit card statements to show the limits) (I always showed I have sufficient funds, to spend during my stay in Ausi although my total expenses were taken care of by another person)

5. A letter from my husband to the AHC- Sri Lanka, stating that he will take care of all the expenses of my stay and our plans during the holiday. (how he's planning to take leave from work to spend time/travel with me)

(it would be great that if you have a special reason to be together during this period such as celebrate a special event together for the first time or your anniversary....etc)...... we wanted to celebrate Christmas together as husband and wife for the first time

6. My Husband's Payslips, bank statements, notice of assessment, house documents.

Tip.
Make a holiday plan with tentative dates, plan what places you are going to visit request the visa according to this plan.... Keep in mind you have to convince them that you are requesting this visa for tourism purpose (to visit people and travel around) not to wait until you get the partner visa

Hope this helps
mpink;1481137 Thank you so much for your time to reply to my question.

I have noted your points and do the needful.

My wife is not working at the moment. So i am bit worried about how to convince AHC that she is coming only for holiday and will return home by end date.

Because she is not working I am unable to provide employment details. Do you think I can still apply ?

I agree with what mpink says and that you have to show strong evidence of returning. in fact that's all what they seem to care about with regards to visitor visa (unless there is some urgent condition for visiting). I have seen some people in this forum recommending to the lengths of mentioning that you have a sick relative back at home and you are the only carer for them and provide medical proof. Although that may seem over the top I kind of now understand why they mention that.

you don't have to go to that lengths. but I believe you are at the advantage now that your spouse application has been finalized and awaiting decision following normal time frames. so logically it would make sense for them to assume that you would not compromise such a state by breaching the conditions of a visitor visa.

just don't make the mistake I did by trying to be too honest and stating it as a fact that you are applying so you can be together while the spouse visa processes. I showed all documents and assets over 1M for my wife but they still refused. one of the reasons they had mentioned on the refusal letter was that she does not have much travel history in the past to show as record.

The department does take some things to the moronic level in such sense. but hey we are all victims of the system.. Like some people have suggested I do recommend getting a "good" agent if you can find one through recommendations. but yeah there is no issue for you to apply for a visitor visa now.

Hi Tazzy

Even people who had a job to return back in the home country had been rejected on their visitor visas. Just gather whatever the strong evidence you have and apply.

Wish you good luck!

Hi Tazzy,

Good luck for applying Visiting visa, Avices are very true you need to have very strong evidence on commitment to coming back after visiting.

We also applied for my husband, but unfortunately they refused it as my husband doesn't work since & they mentioned that they cannot see evidence on commitment to come back although my husband had a good travel history.

So , please provide more evidence & you should be ok.

Good luck.
