I was granted a visitor visa for 1 year on multiple entry (3 months max stay) today and feeling ecstatic that's such a relief as i can visit my husband often until a decision is made on the partner visa.

Thank you.

I know right. Wishing the same too. How long have you been waiting since you've submitted your application? has a case officer been assigned to you already?

Congrats! You are very lucky, just like RG123.

I’m curious as to how they grant 1 year 3 month stay visa. Last time we applied family sponsored, next year we are considering tourist stream.

Did you guys indicate that you will be entering Aus on more than one occasion for Q4?

It seems like it is easier for female applicants to get this, curious to know what were the reasons you guys gave as returning back to SL? Especially without proof of employment and a partner staying in Aus, that is a fantastic outcome!

And tezzie did you lodge online through Immi account or VFS?

Appreciate your help!

Thank you

I applied under the tourist stream. i did lodge it online through IMMI Account which was super fast and straight forward, saved a lot of hassle of getting documents certified by a JP, as you can just attach scanned images or colour photographs of the documents you have. Was a bit skeptical about applying online however i would advise you to do the same. I've traveled to Aus thrice on holiday before i got married wondering whether that helped coz i've not overstayed etc.

I did indicate that will be entering more than once however the maximum period i plan to stay i mentioned as 3 months. But on a cover letter again i requested to consider granting for an extended period with multiple entry.

I just recently resigned so i was able to provide payslips up to Oct but was not able to submit a letter from the employer mentioning that i've been granted leave. Actually took a chance on that and it worked.Try to write a convincing cover letter but don't show that your desperate.

I would strongly recommend to apply for a visit visa via IMMI Account coz the CO can directly contact you in case if they need further documents or if they feel there is a necessity to keep a security bond.

Hope this helps Good Luck!

So I've travelled once before to aus as well. I did say I would be entering only once in my form though ( not sure how i got multiple entry though). I also had a letter from my employer saying i would be returning back ( though I Iater resigned. My boss was super understanding with this arrangement)
I guess these factors helped in my tourist visa grant for one year. But from what I see it really depends on your case officer as some applicants with similar situations like mine are granted visas with a duration of less than a year.
