Partner or PR Visa?

Hi

I am an Australian citizen who married an Indonesian national in February of this year. I am moving to Indonesia in April to live with my wife. We would like to eventually resettle back in Australia. Should my wife apply for a spouse visa or a permanent residents visa (which I understand must be proceeded by a temporary residents visa). We are interested in the usual pros and cons - length of time to approve, cost, and likelihood of success.

You wife should apply for a Partner Visa. This is a two stage visa subclass 309/100, with the 309 being a provisional visa and the 100 being the permanent visa. It doesn't matter that you are living in Indonesia while applying for the visa. It is great that you can live there with her during the application process. The visa application fee is A$6,865 for both visas. If you were use a migration agent in Australia I would estimate about $3,500 in fees. If the application is does well there is no reason why it should not succeed.

Congratulations on marrying an Indonesia. You are in for an interesting life as Indonesia is always full of surprises and cultural enrichment. I am celebrating my 40th anniversary with my Balinese bride this month.
