Like I said, though - check with a MARA-registered migration agent just to be sure!

I just verified in the Partner Migration Booklet, under "Sponsorship Eligibility:" "If you are an Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you are required to be usually resident in Australia." Now to see if I can find a post of Mark's or Chris' here discussing what "usually resident" means....

Found it! Mark's response to someone else's same situation.

You can read the whole thread here to get context, but the OP's issue was pretty much the same.

CollegeGirl Thanks a lot for all the clarification, I am glad you informed me at the right time. Your posts have made me happy and sad at the same time
I am so confused at the moment that what shall I do now? Shall I got to Australia without my wife, spend reasonable time there and then ask my wife to apply her visa?

Kindly guide me, what shall I do in this situation?

Unfortunately (as far as I can see) your only option is to move to Australia and wait to apply for a while. If you can get our wife onshore with some other visa type (student visa or skilled visa) that would be an option, but otherwise... I'm not sure what other options you'd have. Like I said - probably best to confirm that with a MARA-registered migration agent.

Looking forward to your replies.
Hi Usman,
I looked at the link:
http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/part...-sponsor.htm#c

Am I right in assuming you have been within Australia for at least 2 years already...and have visa 100?
And you are working overseas now....?
Then you will be OK to keep working and apply as sponsor for your wife with proof of your overseas income - be it pay checks, bank deposits, contracts or similar.
You should show your bank accounts/ evidence to prove income - e.g not that you have just borrowed money temporarily.
Make it easy for the case officer to give approval......

Once your wife gets the 309 visa then you will have to return to Australia with her to active the visa within the valid entry period.

Regarding "usually resident in Australia"....if you have a contract for overseas work and your wife is with you then there is a provision for this situation that you can apply for special circumstances....DIAC will advise you if you need to follow up on this....
If you own a house then that can also be "generally resident" (at this address)

I was overseas living in Cambodia and working in Africa - submitted the SP40 form for my family in Cambodia - 256 pages of financial and relationship evidence.

The Embassy staff try to answer your questions - and there is lots of information online.

Good luck.
