Australian Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs Annual Report 1998-99

During the year, DIMA's Investigations Unit referred 88 briefs of evidence about immigration fraud to the Director of Public Prosecution 52 people were convicted for offences against the Migration Act 1958 and other Commonwealth legislation.

Penalties resulting from the convictions generally consisted of good behaviour and community service, but there were also heavier penalties, including custodial sentences of up to three years and fines ranging up to $7000.

What are the details of your Visa ? Like what are you applying for etc. Be great to see a timeline

I understand this process is tough, as do most of the people on this site. We are all in it together, so please dont feel alone.
Ive found after being in a long distance relationship for over 2 years now...positivity is the only fricken thing that will get you through. Im not saying that is easy either, its bloody hard.

Another thing I do and you can too..try looking at what this situation is teaching you about yourself..do you get me?
Ive learnt so much about myself in the duration of being apart from the one person I really want to be with..and its really cool when you can look at what you can learn about you..it keeps you going and makes you stronger. Everything happens for a reason, I fully believe that. Although I hate all the fricken delays and the not knowing..Ive been getting through it! That is awesome in itself.
Try changing your focus

Hi There Bryan,
I am so sorry to read your posts and to see that you are suffering so badly with your situation. I do understand so well what you are going through as my mental health is degrading day by day as a result of the stress and pressure of this process and being apart from the man I love.
It means that everything in our lives suffer. Right now I don't seem to be able to have healthy relationships with anyone as I am so vulnerable because of my life being out of my control that I just seem to have conflict left, right and centre.
I also wanted to say that like your love, my man is so much better at dealing with emotions and long waits etc than me. You know I think I have come to understand that as a 1st world citizen in many ways I am the weaker one in this relationship. Being from a 3rd world country he is used to adversity, having to fight for what you want, dealing with difficult emotions, life not always turning out the way he wanted or planned...or in fact not even having options to plan...just taking what you get.
This has been a big life lesson for me to see that in fact he is not feeling any less emotion that me, he is just trained in the art of managing it as it has been part of his way of life to do so....where as in a 1st world country if we don't like something we generally can opt out, shift up or move out...we have options so we are not as good as living with it.
Anyway just some of my thoughts that I felt might help you out a little.
In terms of the Tourist Visa....I would say give up. They can make the rules with these visas and you will be chasing you tail. If you are waiting on a 309 focus your attention there and on maybe you going to see her.
Stay Strong xxx

I'm not sure I agree with that. My wife is from Kenya and I'm Aussie. I'm definitely handling things way better than her. I think it's just that everyone is different. I'm definitely a glass half full person and she is a glass half empty person.
