Question Reasons to return - tourist visa

Hi,
Just wondering if anyone would be able to share what they wrote for a successful tourist visa application as their reason to return if they didn't have a job to return to and we basically waiting for Immigration to process a souse or PMV visa.

Would be very grateful for the help...thanks!!!!

Hi Mel,

I'd be happy to share ours, but it may not be too much help in your situation. You've already seen my post about our TV process here but I'll add a couple of things.

The only real, tangible thing my husband had to constitute a reason to return was some property in his name in his country. He had no job and no study to come back to, but he did have his whole natural family (parentd ans siblings). I'm sure it also helped that we were living together in his country, even though we were travelling together back to Australia and I myself had no real tangible reason to return to his country afterwards. But I managed to convince the case officer during interview that we had set up a life in his country and we weren't ready to apply for a partner visa to emigrate. Another thing is that we had been married three years and he had never met my family. It may not help you much, but that's how we did it!

One thing you have going for you is that you've already applied for a PMV and paid the hefty fee, so in theory at least they wouldn't be too worried about him going to Australia in order to bypass the real system. And it actually says so in the Procedures Advice Manual for case officers.

If you could also add a statutory declaration that you will support him during his stay - and proof of your ability to do so - that will probably help a lot.

Good luck!

Yes, it's quite different and many things that applied to us don't apply to you as I've seen throughout your story here on the forum.

Hopefully some others that are closer to your situation will chime in soon.
