Smile Spouse visa - Employment check

hello,
i just wanted to ask about a confusion.I have launched a spouse visa application and my husband is my sponsor.My application is in process and we provided current employment payslips and employment letter.If my husband discontinues his job during my application in process , does we need inform the visa officer about it or does the embassy make a check with the job company about it.Because as far as i remember change in circumstances are to notify anything which has changed during the process for the applicant.Kindly clear this or suggest something on it.

What checks immigration do will be up to how closely a CO follows any detailed visa approval procedures, something that only people working for immigration would be aware of.

Regardless, like most things in life and particularly with officialdom, honesty is more highly valued than witholding information of a change that immigration do expect you to notify them of.

Certainly, they will look at how your husband's discontinuance of work may affect his ability as a sponsor but seeing as you're applying after already being married, that will be in your favour, as immigration whilst recognising the change will also know that many families in Australia have husbands/wifes losing their jobs in the current economic climate and so your husband will not be alone in that situation.

On the other hand if they become aware of the change in your husbands circumstances and see that this information was not passed on, I'd expect that they would be less than pleased and that could swing a decision against you.

I would notify them just in case. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to these things.

When I got my initial email from DIAC (after they received my application) they said to contact them if there was any change in address, marital status or employment, etc as soon as possible.

thank you for your kind reply..actually i was a little confused and yes i think then notifying will be better.as u mentioned that in our case being married already will have a positive effect just wanted to inquire that me and my husband will be staying together in our home country after job discontinues.will this also be an additional advantage in our case as i think one thing which they look in any case is genuine and continuing relationship.

I do not think it is mandatory for someone with a visa to immediately travel to Australia but there will I expect be implications for later travel in that any health examination you're required to have will have an expiry date and you had better have a read of requirements for a permanent residency visa after the temporary visa as there may be some sort of a requirement, though a while since I read the section myself.

And then of course, if you leave it for too many years there could be further implications re PR and getting a Right to Return Visa if in fact you have never been in Australia initially.

They are questions you best direct to immigration.
