Can you help us? Unique offshore partner visa issues.

Hey guys,

I've done some searching but can't seem to find an answer... My wife (23, Dutch) and myself (24, Australian Citizen) are currently living in the Netherlands and really need some advice regarding the partner visa 309. We're really stuck on what to do.

The main questions are:

- Will I have problem proving my ability to financially support my wife since I am now living in the Netherlands, and don't have a work contract in Australia?

- If we wait until we have been together for three years (this November) can my wife apply straight for PR and avoid the temporary visa? If yes, can she go back and apply on a tourist visa?

Some background information: we have been together for over two years (three years this November) and have been married for a year. We lived together in Australia for two years, before deciding to both return to the Netherlands so my wife could spend some extra time with family before living in Australia.

Thank you very much for your time, we both really appreciate your advice.

You don't need to demonstrate that you can provide financially, we have had students and people on Centrelink sponsor a partner.

If you have been de facto and/or married for 3 years at time of application she will go straight to PR. The key is to provide evidence of living together prior to marriage that makes up the 3 years.

Yes, she can go on a tourist visa with you just be aware under the evisitor she has to leave every 3 months and can be questioned if re-enters after a short time offshore.

Hi,

Please find answers to your questions:

Answer 1: Income here in Australia should not be an issue.
Answer 2: She will not be granted permanent visa (Subclass 100) first even though, you are in the relationship for 3 years. Subclass 309 grant is must. You can make a request to the case officer to waive 2 years waiting period based on 3 years relationship. Even if, your request is accepted, there will be first grant for Subclass 309 and then Subclass 100.

Regards,

Sanjayai Kapoor (MARN: 1066506)
