I have used up both working holidays:-(
But thanks anyway for your reply...

That sounds like working to me, even selling under hubby's name. She's still the one doing the work. You can't even volunteer in a volunteer position if they would have paid an Australian to do it - they're very strict about this kind of thing.

We are married, too...

Is there an other visa option or way to be able to at least work a few hours while waiting for the visa approval - which we donīt know about?


We put our application in in september last year.

Thank you guys a lot for your infos...

Why don't you do some volunteer work. It has to be work that an Australian would not get paid to do. There are websites online that list volunteer positions. Years ago a friend use to work at Lifeline.

Otherwise you can get your blue card and see if you can volunteer at a primary school helping out with reading with the kids etc.

howdy Berliners ,

got a pleasant surprise on friday , my german fiance got an email requesting the police and medical checks, only 4 weeks after our online PMV app went in on the 10th December , very surprised and much eartlier than we had expected.

Our case officer is BJ , anyone else have BJ and anything to share about them ??.

I think we will wait till near the end of the 70 days we have been given to do the checks so we dont get a very short arrival date

Hi all... this is a great forum, lots of great tips. .

I am an Aussie born and bred, husband and kiddies Swedish. My husband has submitted online his app. for a partner visa on 20/12/2014. And i have submitted the kiddies citizen by descent apps. Online last week. We need to be in Aus by the end of July at the latest. If my husband does not have his visa by then, what is the best way to make this happen? He will not need to start working until jan 2016. He is a registered nurse. Thanks!

He could apply for a visitor visa, but since he will need to be outside Australia for his visa to be granted, he needs to let DIBP know his travel plans so they can notify him to go offshore (most people take a short holiday in NZ, Bali, etc.)

He can't work on a visitor visa so he will need to wait until his partner visa is approved to start working.

I think some people who applied in April 2014 got their approvals in December. Has anyone that applied in May 2014 got there approvals so far this month?
