3 Month vs 6 Month Tourist Visa

Hi all,

I just wanted some advice. We lodged our 309/100 partner visa at the begginning of May. I'm back in Australia ahead of the birth of our baby, trying to get my husband over on a tourist visa. Our first attempt was rejected because I opted for Sponsored Family Tourist Visa after mis-interpreting the Sponsorship guidelines. I am now going for Visitor Visa - Tourist Stream.

The dilemma is, I want my husband here until December, just over 5 months from when we're reapplying. I applied for 6 months on the initoal visa and took a chance by booking flights out of Australia in December to visit his brother in Vietnam.

However, I hold our savings because im setting up for us and baby and he doesnt have alot to show for a 6 month period in terms of supporting himself. Ive got a letter from the bank showing my savings, plus Stat Decs from my parents promising financial and accomodation support during the Spouse Visa processing period.

Should we just bite our tongues and go for 3 months? Are they typically easier to get? I guess I can change the flights to late September instead. Whats most important is he is here for her birth.

I think he's going to apply in person. Or maybe if we go armed with a 6 month application, they might approve a 3 month on the spot if they arent satisfied we can support him for 6 months rather than reject it? We'll have about $8000 of savings between us. I really thought that would do it but i'm just questioning the whole process now.

Thanks in advance all,

Kristy

It was rejected based on me not being eligible to be a sponsor. Its not just about having faith to buy the flights it was to show as proof of intention to leave.
