Subclasses 309 and 100

Hi All,

I was granted the GSM 175 visa in July 2012, and made the validation and stayed in Perth for a week. Then I have been out of Australia on a project since.

I got married in December 2012 after being in the relationship for 3.5 years. I am planning to make the final move to Perth by Q3-4 2013 with the same employer. And I want to take my wife along with me.

Is it possible to apply for her now since I haven't lived in Australia for a significant amount of time? If not, to be eligible for me to sponsor her, how long would I have lived in Australia?

It has been my concern since I haven't made my final move yet. And I am pretty sure that some of you went through this. I would appreciate if anyone could comment on this. I looked it up on DIAC website but couldn't find anything about the extent of the residence before being eligible to sponsor a spouse.

Cheers,
CD

Did you claim your partner on the 175 paperwork? If not, I believe you are in for hard yards. I recently read an MRT case where that came up.

Hi, Its safer to be in Australia and then apply for your spouse 309/100. One of my coworker (PR holder) was working in US, he applied for his spouse visa and CO asked him to provide the proof of strong ties to Australia. Only the Australian citizens can sponsor spouse while living overseas without much problems.

Yes, if you're a Permanent Resident, you have to have been "usually resident" in Australia over the last... at least one year. I can't remember if it's one year or two. Either way, doesn't sound like you'll qualify yet.

Hi all,

I appreciate all of your input. I guess I would have to wait then.
