Address of initial stay in Australia

Our CO contacted us and asked for additional information:

-Your proposed address for initial stay in Australia.

The problem is: we don't have proposed address because we intend to reside in hotel until we find the apartment. Why CO wants to know proposed address for initial stay?
Could it be a problem if we just tell him about our plan for hotel?

I don't see why they would have a problem with your hotel stay while looking for more permanent living, after all- you can afford it.

As long as you have hotel reservations and can provide proof, it should be fine. They need to have an address for you while in Australia. You'll have to change it with immigration once you move. It's a requirement on most visas.

That's my opinion bases on researching and reading on imm website and on here. If I'm wrong, please correct me. Thanks- and hope this helps.

I think honeyt is wright, I dont think you should worry, thats a normal procedure, especially when children are involved. When we moved from Germany to Croatia they wantet to have an adress in Croatia because of the dependant child. I am actually jealous of you, because there is someting moving with your visa, so I belive you will get ist soon.

I forgot to mention that me, my wife and child all live in Croatia and because we don't know when my visa will be granted we can not make any reservations.

@fuerstin- it just looks like it is moving but we all know that looks can be deceiving CO told us again it is going to take 7-9 months.

Hey sunny smile,

That's quite frustrating. If it's a requirement to have an Aust address and the time frame is 7-9 months processing, I would still go ahead and make reservations during that time-frame at a hotel. They do not charge your credit card until you check in anyway, and you have the right to cancel or make changes before then. Also, hotel rates are quite low if you book that much in advance and you'll be lucky to snag a great deal on top of it. But if I were you, I would check to see what their cancellation policy is and the fees. Not sure if you can find any hotel that don't have those fees. Something to think about.
