Visitor Visa while PMV Pending

Hey everyone,

My fiance is from Thailand. I have been with her for just over a year. I have travelled to Phuket 8 times in the past year and lived there for 2 months when we first met each other. She came to Sydney back in February for 10 days after being issued a 3 month single entry visitor visa. I am now extremely close to submitting my PMV application. In August our plan is for her to come to Sydney on a 6 month multi entry visitor visa while the PMV is pending so it would allow her to return home to complete the police check. Obviously after the 6 months she will also need to return home to renew her visitor visa as it is likely the PMV will not have a decision yet. We used to a visa service in Phuket the first time she came here and we have spoken to them again but they said there is a high chance she will not be granted a 6 month visa and only a 3 month wll be issued because of recent changes in the embassy.

Does anyone else know anything about this??

Regards

Jarrod

While waiting for my PMV in 2014-2015 I also applied for a visitor visa and granted a 3 year multi-entry visa. From what I know and what I experienced, the maximum stay period for visitor visa is only 3months per visit, doesn't matter whether its a 6month, 1year or 3year multi-entry visa.

But maybe others or any of the migration agents can give you a more detailed information.

We got a 12 month from day of issue ( issued on 3/9/14 expires 3/9/15). It was a multi entry but we did not need to leave.

We asked 6 month multi entry.

{See attached for 1yr visitor visa grant for Vika – note that it begins today, and ends 3 Sep 2015, with no maximum stay period (she can stay as long as she wants in Australia during that time). Since there is no “stay period”, she must depart by 3 Sep 2015 regardless of how many entries/exits before that. As it’s a multiple entry visa, she can come and go to Australia as she likes within the 1 yr validity of the visa.

Will let you know when I hear re: the children’s visas.

Best regards,

Mark}

P.S. our medicals had been done and received prior to Visitor Visa application as a fully loaded PMV application with police reports.

We were willing to redo medical and police reports at 10 month mark if required, they never requested original police reports.

Thank you

Yeah i thought it was really strange they said only 3 months visas. I think maybe they think if they only apply for a 3 month she will go home and we will use them again to renew a new one so they want money. Or maybe they can guarantee a 3 month visa but not 6 months. Who knows.

I plan to submit my PMV this week and the plan is to bring my fiance to Sydney on a visitor visa in mid August. She already has a hap ID from a previous medical so hopefully she wont need a new one and maybe they will ask for a police check before she comes here.
