Smile Visitor Visa subclass 600 tourist

Hi everyone,

I am an Australian citizen and living in Mexico with my partner, we both plan to go to Australia for 2 months at the end of the year for Christmas and to meet my family, we will return to Mexico together afterwards.

I just have a few things I would like clarified;

-Proof of incentive to return: we have his university enrolment documentation and copies of his parents identifications to prove family ties, will this be sufficient?

-Certification of documents: Is it only copies of passports, birth certificates and his parents identification that need to be certified? Or all documents such as bank statements etc.?

-Translation of documents: again would this only be for the identity documents? (birth cert, passport etc.) Or his college enrolment transcript as well??
I have read that the translator does not need to be certified if outside Aust. so I am assuming, someone who translates a lot in their line of work will be satisfactory?? ( I have an Australian friend here who is bi-lingual and works in a Mexican company)

-To confirm that we do not need a police check for the visitors visa correct??

Much appreciated!

If they're from Mexico and they're your partner but you haven't applied for a partner visa they're going to struggle to get a visitor visa without heavy, convincing incentive evidence

Just to give you a hint, my husband (Russian) supplied enrolment, employment, partner visa application and more and was still refused.
If your partner is an adult then family ties to his parents won't matter at all to DIBP unless they're dependent of him regarding financially or everyday care etc. Convincing family ties are spouse and kid only.

If you're asking for two months many departments are strict about time asked if the applicant has never travelled before. After travelling overseas for a short holiday, asking for three months was not in line with my husband's past travel history according to DIBP. So your partner should prove international travel especially to places with visa standards similar to Australia like the UK.

This might be financially burdening, especially considering the chance of refusal, but you might want to prove your intentions to go back to Mexico afterwards with proof of a visa or whatever requirements there are for Australians in Mexico.

"Certified" in regards to documents translated overseas mostly just refers to the translator declaring that it is a truthful translation, signing and stamping it (along with contact details, translation agency and educational credentials usually on the stamp). We translated IDs, birth cert, enrolment contract etc but have never translated unofficial documents that were just printed like bank statements and invoices. They never raised any issue about that approach but we still were refused for other reasons.

You do not need a police check for visitor visas.
