Brazilian to Move to Australia

Hi

Thanks in advance for your help.

My Brazilian girlfriend and I have decided to make the big move and she is going to move Australia. We are ready to spend the rest of our lives together, the problem is I have no idea where to begin.

She has already had a student visa and a 3mth tourist visa for Australia.

What are our different options?

Hi Gibba -

You could get engaged, apply for a subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa, and upon grant of that visa she can then come to Australia for 9 months during which you can marry in Australia or elsewhere. After you're married, you could then apply for a partner visa either onshore or offshore - depends on where you want to be during processing.

Alternatively you could move in together and live together for a while, then apply for a partner visa based on a defcato relationship - this normally requires 12 months living together prior to applying for the partner visa unless your relationship is registered in the Australian state where the sponsor normally lives.

Hope this helps - lots of great info on the forum here about this subject.

Best,

Mark Northam

I like the sound of this option. Is there any way she can get here, stay and work for 12 months so that we can go down the avenue?

Perhaps a student visa (limited work rights)? Very few visas allow a 12 month stay and unlimited work - a 485 visa if she graduated from an Australian school perhaps, unfortunately Brazil is not a country that participates in Australia's working holiday visa program.

Best,

Mark Northam
