Unhappy Visitor e600 Refused - Help

Hi everyone, 2 weeks ago I applied for subclass e600 to go to Australia to visit my friend for 3 weeks. Unfortunately, this morning I have received the email from DIBP stating that they have refused my application.

The reason is as below:

The applicant has lodged an application for a Visitor visa (Subclass 600) to visit Australia for tourist purposes from 01/02/16 to 26/02/17.
The client has declared that she has been the co-owner of the restaurant Secret Garden inFrance since 23/06/2016. The applicant’s brother has provided a letter stating that his sister has joint him and his wife as the third owner of their restaurant. However, no official documentary evidence of the applicant’s relationship to this business has been provided.The applicant has declared that she receives a monthly salary of EUR 1,200 approx.However, no documentary evidence (such as pay slips) has been provided. Also, the bank statement provided does not show a regular salary.
I find that the evidence of employment the applicant has provided in support of this application is insufficient without the support of any official evidence of an active business.While I have taken into account that close relatives remain behind and that she owns a car inFrance; I find that, on balance, this is not sufficient in overcoming my concerns. Having taken all of the information submitted in support of the application, on balance, Iam not satisfied that the applicant genuinely intends to stay temporarily in Australia for the purpose for which the visa is granted. At this time, subclause 600.211 has not been met by the applicant.

Basically, I am refused on not having enough employment evidence. I would love to reapply but I know I should only do so if I can address the refusal reason.

The documents I provided:
- My passport, which shows previous French student visa, UK internship visa, UK visitor visas. All of which I complied with the immigration rules. I have travelled a lot but it's mainly in the Schengen area so I have no stamps to prove my extensive travel history.
- My birth certificate
- Bank statements in 2 months which shows 5400 euros of savings (1700 euros of the sum was deposited just a day prior to the submission).
- A copy of my French business visa.
- A letter from my brother confirming that I am the third owner of our restaurant in France, my basic pay is 1200 euro but with bonuses dependent on the monthly revenue. He also confirms that he has no objection w me going to Aus for the above-mentioned 3 weeks and I am expected to return to France to resume work on 27th Feb.
- A copy of my brother's French ID (He's a French citizen)
- As I own a car in France, I also included a copy of my car registration.
- A hand-written letter from my friend (Australian citizen), stating that we met 7 years ago and have kept in touch ever since, and I will be staying with him at his address.
- A copy of my friend's tenency contract as proof of residence and his passport as proof of identity.


As I am currently working in a family business, I don't have the payslips to provide. I only have the documents which I used to get my French business visa. It's a business plan that explaining how much my share in this business is and how much I will be earning each month fro the business. I am not sure if it'll be sufficient.

I'll really appreciate it so much if someone could please give me some advices on this...

The reason given for refusal may not be the only reason/s. We had Visitor Visa's rejected and found the reasons were more, such as too much money in her account.

I would get one of the Registered Migration Agents that post here regularly to review your application and reapply for you.

I would think just from your post a e600 (for a year) would not be issued as it can not have the No Further Stay condition on it, that allows you to apply for another visa once in Australia - possible Partner Visa to Australian friend! These are the type of doubts that need to be removed from the Case Officer.

I found it very confusing because I only applied for 3 weeks from 1/2/2017 to 26/2/2017. But in the refusal letter, it stated from 1/2/2016 (today is already 29/10/2016). So I reckoned it was just a typo error.

Thanks for the reply anyway! And yes, my friend is actually my boyfriend. But at the moment, we both have no intention to apply for a partner visa. I only want to visit him for a few weeks, then I'll head back to France to resume work.

In your experience, did you get rejected a visitor visa before? At the moment we have no intention to apply for a partner visa but I would appreciate very much if someone could please advise me on what to do. I would like to reapply for a visitor visa to visit him for 3 weeks. But I would like to do it in a way that would not hinder my ability to apply for offshore partner visa if we want to do it in the future.

You don't need to supply your passport Australia is label free. The visa when approved is linked to your passport number.

Even if you gave them your passport nothing would go in it because they don't do labels.

You just print the visa confirmation for backup if you want but I believe the airlines have access to Australian immigration to see if you have a visa.

There are lots of reasons a visa can be refused with the main one being you aren't a genuine tourist.
