Hi

We are trying to lodge a tourist visa so that he can travel to australia to enable us to spend christmas together. I cannot get much leave from my aussie employer. Can anyone who has lodged a tourist visa pending an offshore spouse visa lodged in Sri Lanka, please give me some tips on lodging a tourist visa? My husband might also loose his job very soon, has anyone been successful in getting a toursit visa in this situation. Please advise. Many thanks in advance.

I truly understand how it is to be waiting for some email to get back to your loved ones. My wife and I have been away from each other than we have been together. Lucky I found this forum and made me understand there are lot of people like us.

Don't worry, when you see each other you'll forget everything.

I have been through so many visa applications none rejected so far. It's just ridiculous and expensive. But at the end it'll all be worth

Let's pray our visa will be granted soon.
Hi Blessed4life

I am trying to get my husband on a tourist visa. We lodged our spouse visa on 1 June 2017. Did you have any issues getting the tourist visa, could you please give me some details/precautions you took when applying for the tourist visa from Sri Lanka to Australia. my husband is employed now but might loose his job soon. We want to spend our first christmas as husband and wife together. Please give me your thoughts/any helpful information.

Hey Jay2010,

My advice for you is make you have strong evidence that your husband would return back to Sri Lanka after his visit. For example evidence that he is employed and management has approved his leave for his visit. Also financial aspects in Sri lanka such as bank statements, salary slips,assets(under his name)...

You can also add your marriage certificate copies and also your financial aspects in Australia. Ex: How would you take care of him during his visit. (Bank statements, salary slips and lease agreement).

When applying for a tourist visa make sure you guys mention that you'll have already applied for a Partner visa and it is currently being processed.

I hope this helps

Cheers,
Rooh

Thanks
Hi Pooja,

PR Quota's are generally for skilled migration. Spouse visa does not fall into that category. In our case, this is just money eating slow working visa processing system and our 12 month visa processing period that AHC uses as an excuse.

I haven't heared anything from AHC as of yet. Have been busy last week and no time to call them as well.

Will let you know guys once we get final grant !

Thanks

Hi Jay,

First of all, Hurry up and get your service letter from your husband's employer stating that he is still employed and gather few of his payslips for your visa application. ( Apply for general tourist visa - NOT family sponsored as it sounds you are running out of time )

There are 2 things matter in tourist visa:
* You as sponsor's status ( Employment, Accommodation )
* Strong return reason for your husband to go back to SL at the end of visit.

You'll need :
- Your bank statement, payslips, brief letter indicating you will look after all his expenses and accommodation.

Husband will need,
- His employment letter + payslips or Deed of any property under his name.

Strongly indicate he is visiting to spend few months with you and return to srilanka at the end of visit to liase with pending spouse visa.

When we applied for our 2nd tourist visa, i did not include any of my wife's employment/deed and only used my financial documents.

PM Me if you have any questions & good luck !
