I must say that wouldn't apply to Moscow, they seem to hold money and respectable employment to the utmost importance, unless it is from a one off bank deposit from parents.
You, who had "20k in bank from wealthy parents" had your visa rejected in Moscow ?

The one I know who also had almost as much, also from parents, also had it rejected, in Manila.

Pretty similar on that point it seems.

We got about 10k as a gift for marriage and migration for my husband's parents and 10k was a mix of inheritance, savings from my husband's former employment etc. Unfortunately he made a habit of taking out every cent of money in his bank accounts so we had to put all of it back into his account for the bank statement, so there are about 5 deposits adding up to 20k made in the space of a couple of weeks.

We had our visa rejected but nothing about the money, they only stated travel history, but I am going off what ampk said which was that he found out later by phone that they took the bank statement into consideration too but didn't say it on the decision record.

I asked whether the visas you were talking about were ones lodged in Australia as sponsored stream or tourist streams lodged in their own countries, as I am now wondering if our visa lodged in Australia will be rejected for this reason.

The ones that were granted were normal tourist stream, lodged in Manila.

The one refused might actually have been a sponsored one. I can't recall for certain. I let my ex wife do that one on her own, and had very little input.

But I do know that refusal rates vary for the different streams:

Visa Grant Rates
99.2% eVisitor Tourist Stream Visa (8 in each 1,000 refused)
93.4% Tourist Stream Visa (66 in each 1,000 refused)
75.2% Sponsored Tourist Stream Visa (248 in each 1,000 refused)

My now wife $20,000 was in USD and before we knew each other, I never knew about it till I said you need $1,000 a month in your account for you and maybe more for kids upto $2,000 per month.

I expected to have to transfer her money for this, her reply was like then we can stay for a year 2 then?

My first guess was a divorce settlement, but can be so many reasons and partner putting it is one.

I am hoping to get some helpful advice in regards to the visa 600

My partner is from Kenya, and we are about to apply for her to obtain a travel visa to visit here later this year

This is all new to me. I believe I am to write a letter of invitation...and be a sponsor...what should my letter contain, how much information should I write.

Has your partner been to Australia before? Do they have an extensive travel history? It's extremely difficult to get a visitor visa for an African. We tried countless times each time fixing the "problem" mentioned in the prior one but in the end we were told verbally just stop applying we are never going to give you one. If you are not married it's better to apply for a pmv - but start collating mounds of evidence now.

thanks chicken, sincerely appreciate the response. No she has not been to Australia before, but she has traveled extensively through Europe, and has never worked illegally or stayed beyond her visa. She actually operates her own tourism business in Kenya.

Can you please tell me what a pmv is...and what types of evidence do you mean...income sources, travel history?? From reading this thread I am thinking the issues relating to refusals are mostly suspicions of the person working here illegally, not returning to their country, or inability to support themselves while here...which I guess relates to the first reason I mentioned. So I assume you mean to gather information that will help to address these issues?

Chicken can you tell me more about your situation...and thanks again for replying

PMV is proposed marriage visa, go check out the Immigration website and download the Partner Migration booklet (1127.pdf) ;-)

Refusals can be for any reason for example for husband (then fiance) was rejected a PMV due to civil unrest and economic differences.

DIBP look at the non return rate alot. If the country has a high non return rate it can be very hard to get a tourist visa.

All you can do is try.

Pmv is fiance visa...have a look at the other threads to see the sort of evidence you need.

They can refuse tourist visas a million different reasons for Africans . Lack of a job or if you have a job how dare u have holidays cause u probably won't go back. Not enough money in the bank, too much money in the bank. Havnt travelled enough, no family left behind, no property owned.

If she owns property, prove it, if she's leaving the kid behind while she visits that may help but if she brings her with her that won't look good. You have to prove u have more ties to your home country more reasons to go back than you have to stay. I recommend u employ a migration agent to apply for the tourist visas - it's that hard.

Have a read of my posts and threads for my story you can ask me more questions if you like after that
