Thanks everyone for your time and input. I'll let you know how everything works out as new things happen, if that's something you are interested in.

Hi Tim

I'd appreciate knowing how you go with this as well please Tim.

I'm in a very similar situation to yourself in that my partner needs to be added to my 457 and we have to acquire the 6 months evidence while she's here on a tourist visa.

We already have 4 months evidence under our belt so just 2 more to go but she was here on a working holiday visa and now on her return as a tourist she's had to answer a whole load of questions before they grant the tourist visa. We're just keeping everything crossed that she gets the tourist visa with a no further stay so we can then get her on my 457 in a couple of months time.

Hello Folks,

Here is an update on our situation...

The immigration agent I am dealing with said it's probably easiest for her to go to NZ for about a week every three months. She left a couple of days ago but had trouble leaving...(mostly the workers for the airline didn't understand the visa limitations...she had to explain to them for about an hour). That means in three months, she'll have to leave again and come back. By that time, there should be the 6 months of proof that immigration needs.

So far, my 457 has been going smooth. For those interested, you should have at least 5 years work of reference letters from previous employers. These reference letters need to be dated, signed and have letterhead. Photo copies and scans are good enough for everything.

Thanks,
Tim

Hope everything works out OK for you.

My partner actually got refused a tourist visa when trying to re enter so we're currently looking at our best options.

Could you perhaps explain a bit more about your situation, please? There are a lot of people who are entering repeatedly on tourist visas with multiple entries, and while some have no problems at all, some do have many and have been even sent home.
What was your situation, if you don't mind sharing?

All the best and good luck!

Nah. It was refused after applying for an evisitor tourist visa from within the UK.

There's more detail on a post I made further up the thread.

Cheers.

ok,

The immigration agents seem to be getting fairly picky. I don't understand why the dept. of immigration would grant visas for tourists if the immigration agents give these people such a hard time.

She was held up for about 2.5 hrs, locked in an interrogation room, cell phone confiscated and all messages read through, generally being very intimidating and prickish.

It's weird. She has lots of money, very good and up to date health insurance, she's not working and is fully within her rights to return to Australia every 3 months within one year. I guess they were giving a couple of other european women trouble.

matt - what kind of visa did she apply for? was there a reason given why it wasn't granted?
I'm really sorry to hear about your troubles. What are other options for you?

That sounds well full on. Bit ridiculous really coming from a so called low risk country. Hopefully you're sorted now then.

She applied for a 3 month tourist visa. The reason it was refused was quite a standard, generic response but from what we could gather it was because she was returning so soon after finishing a 2 year WHV.

She's looking at student visa options now. Expensive, but we're looking at it positively in that it's a shove on to the career path she's always wanted to pursue. We're still nervous about this one getting declined as well given the recent refusal on the tourist one.
