Yes you are correct defacto is under 309 and is a cheaper option by $995 than the PMV 300 as with the 300 after you marry you need to get a partner visa for a cost of $995
Here is the link
Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100)

Hi there, sorry for the late reply but have been busy working and also thinking about all this...

So anyway my situation is that my online business is going well and I'm making a decent amount that is equivalent to a reasonable job. The good thing is I can travel while I work as I can do it all from my laptop and no I do not have to deal with any physical products, just commissions. The downside is it can be unpredictable but I'm working on making it solid with backup income streams.

I still need to save hard yet and I have only just paid all my cc debt off plus other debts and can now look at the green side and save. I worked out that I should have enough saved to leave Australia in late May and head back to be with her.

At the time I plan to leave I would estimate I would have around $5,000 to $10,000 saved. I'm not sure I would want to spend several thousand on applying for that visa here before I go especially when we could have a high chance of been declined since I was on Centrelink for a couple of months and I have small savings plus a glum year for income.

I was thinking about going and living with my fiancee again and we would also get married pretty soon after I get there. I know the steps to getting married there as I nearly done that last time. I might apply for a CNI before I go too instead of there.

We would then live together and I would guess if my business keeps improving like it is then about 2 months after I get there we would then apply for a visa then. I'm not sure of the name of the visa but the one where we are already married and we want to both come back and live and work in Aussie?

This way we can apply when out banking looks good and it will be less expensive I think? Also, it seems better to me that we are married before applying for the visa for my fiancee.

We can live there reasonably cheap compared to other forigners.. last time I had a nice little new unit for less than $100 per month near city. I believe my business will do well anyway but we will keep budgeting until our savings grow.....

Please tell me what your thoughts are and if going there and applying for her visa will work out OK and if not the reasons why etc?

If you are so serious about your love and commitment for your girl you should take one step at a time.

Step one is to get a job. I can see that there are many jobs in Australia so that should be your priority.

You "nearly got married" but you run out of money. That sounds like you have planned nothing and are just making it up as you go.

My suggestion is that you should get a job and start saving and then everything you do after that will become easy.

You will achieve nothing without money. Dont be lazy because you are asking a girl that loves you to come to a foreign land and live with you and you dont even have a job. Snap out of it and get your act together.

The embassay will not allow your girl to go to Australia unless you can support her.

Finaly, do not think that if you marry in the Philippines it gives you the right to take your wife to Australia. You will wait a long long time.

Open your eyes and get a job..

hi Alans, thanks for your feedback but I don't think you read my last and recent post which explains I do have work and I'm making money now. Please read that as the earlier messages are quite old. My questions are really about visa applications, not about finding work. I just shared my situation so I can explain where I'm at. Anyway, read my last post I wrote today or maybe i should write a new thread as people might end up reading the first post from awhile back?

Actually rereading your message it is quite offensive, what do you mean 'SNAP OUT OF IT" and GET A JOB????

MAYBE YOU SHOULD READ the thread first before making judgments and maybe read the most recent post!!!!

Hi Allansarh
I also found your comments quite harsh and ill informed. This site is for us to support each other. Eco is trying to work out the best way to bring the woman of his dreams to be with him. He is employed though maybe not in the tradional way, which makes it difficult to prove his income. Dunno and I have provided advise in relation to the cost of the immigration process, so he can make an informed decision. Eco is not trying to cheat the system, he is simply impulsively in love and i am happy for him. Eco try this thread. All said though i do not believe $5,000 to $10,000 will be enough to get married and bring your wife to Australia, if you live there. If you stay here yes it is enough

hey Aussie,thanks for your thoughts and you are right, I'm only wanting to bring my woman of my dreams back here.

In fact have never worked so hard since I came back to OZ last Dec and the reason I found Alans comments very offensive and uninformed. I'm currently living in a run down shack and is probably the worst place I have lived in my life. I stay here as it's cheap and I can save to be back with my fiancee. I get up in the morning and work on my business to very late hours, sometimes to 2.am. I remember on NYE I stayed home and worked as I had no interest to go out and entertain myself without my loved one.

Now this hard work is really paying off as I'm now making a really good amount comparable to any good job.Yes I had to go on Centrelink until this work happened but I have been honest here about that as I wanted to get real answers on my situation and no sugar coat anything.

I said I would have 5-10k in May when I plan to leave. That is only just to get myself there and give me a base to live there. I will still have my current income since I can work on my business when I'm there. It will be several more months after that and I would hopefully would have saved over 20k before I even apply for the visa.
'
My plan is just to stay there and when we are in a good position then we apply for the visa and wait.

My only concern was if applying for the visa there (Philippines) would slow it down considerably or make it less likely to be approved. Also do get confused with the various visas but if we are married then I believe we then apply for the spouse visa?

Hi Again Dunan and thanks for the reply, Yes I have read and been on that forum many times and other ones. I have visited the Philippines 6 times now over 5 years and I do know it quite well. I also know the cost to live there etc and everything else but of course I'm also learning new things each time I visit and live there.

So my plan is to just continue to work hard and leave in May and then apply for the visa after we have got married there and have a good savings plus income history. I would guess that the time to apply would be later this year.

Anyway, thanks for your feedback and ideas, it has all helped me work out what to do. I will come back in the future when I might need specific info when we apply for the visa etc.

Hi ECO..Yes I was replying to an old message and apologise for that and I am happy that you are now working and getting your act together.

Based on that post of yours I think even though irrevelent now my advise to others would be the same.

Do your homework and read the relevant booklets that the Austrailan Gov. have on-line in regards to applying for a visa.

I apologise. Thank you.
