Are vistor VISA's limited to 90 days like the ones in Europe? Or can you pay extra to stay longer?

My Partner visited Australia on a Tourist Visa last year and then applied for a Visitor Visa Class 600 whilst he was there and was granted 12 months to visit family. It can all be applied for online.

It was granted about 2 weeks after he applied.

I think it cost about $130.

Hope this helps

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!
See my last comment ^^^

He can enter on a tourist visa and then apply for a visitor visa before it expires.

We have applied on 25.11 and we are on the same stage - in progress - no CO assigned. No emails, no calls so far... Just an automated notification few secs after we have applied. Someone here said, 10-12 weeks now according to DIBP. There is also a thread here about processing time in China - 4 or 5 months and no CO. I am bit worry, but probably it's how government agencies work this days...

Thanks, I guess that puts my mind at ease. I think it works differently in every country. I read some threads of people being assigned a CO within a week of lodging the application. (In Spain, I think.)

Have you gone for your medicals yet? It seems a lot of the advice on these forums sometimes doesn't apply any more now that there is online lodgement and you can upload everything without it being requested...
I'm unsure whether to have medicals done and uploaded asap or to wait until they are requested...

wait with medical until requested. it expires after one year and your initial entry date is tied to it.

Hi guys! I’ve been lurking on this forum for a while now but thought I’d join the thread for those who are in the same situation as us.

My German “partner” (aka boyfriend) applied for the 309/100 de facto visa online on 27 November 2014. We submitted the police check together with our application. We didn’t hear anything from a CO until today! Our CO’s first name starts with A (didn’t tell us her last name lol). Anyone else have her? We received an email requesting medicals but she didn’t specify a timeframe in the letter:

****INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROCESSING OFFICER – You MUST select one of the Timeframe for Response options from the choice list within this letter. Failure to choose an option will result in a defective notification being sent out.****

So we decided that we’d get the medicals done as soon as we can and it’s valid for 1 year as we gathered from this forum. We made an appointment for next week. Our medicals will cost 173 EUR and my boyfriend is required to get a medical examination, HIV test and chest X-ray examination. Are these the standard examinations everyone has to get done?

Fingers crossed for everyone who’s still waiting and @mmis4167, hopefully you’ll hear from your CO soon as well!

Medical exam is part of standard procedure and everyone needs to have one. Prices vary and depend on the location. London is like 270 pounds (?), Poland 75 Euros, Ukraine 50 euros.

I am fine with waiting, just disappointed a bit with the standard of service considering fees and resources department possessed...

good luck...

They are standard. We haven't been requested our yet, but the cost in the Netherlands is around €300 Seems like it might be worth my partner flying elsewhere to get them done if they are that much cheaper elsewhere... Good luck! We're about a month behind you, good to know processing wait might not be too much longer...
