Its like that for a reason, too many people have commited fraud in the past and even though your partner is genuine - many have not been before!

Bringing in refugees can disturb our country with more violence and more problems but in saying there are always a minor few who would keep the balance but who's supposed to know if they're just a random person or family that have come from broken third world countries.
rudd is saying that all refuegees that are found to be genuan are all going to be sent to live on NEW GUINA not australia, so they wont like that and will stop comming, thats his plan .

I love it. If it works it will stop the boats cause they won't want to live in those places. Defeats the whole purpose of paying 10k each to get on a boat

Hey Iduno
I can assure you that this site will be read by at least one senator who I will visit on an almost daily basis. I have waited for the visa approval now I am going political more so than before. I do not believe that Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd has gone far enough but it is a start in the right direction. I personally would like to see the boats occupants redirected to Thailand, Philippines. I agree with you why should the boat people be prioritized for processing? In saying that I also believe that someone who is escaping persecution needs a safe haven and that does not need to be Australia

Reading this topic hurts my head. I would have thought people with partners from all corners of the globe would be a little more open-minded, but I guess not.

The thing is though Australian citizens/perm residential people should be number 1 priority then visa applications meaning all of us who have applied the correct and legal way without bribing (genuine applications). Yes all refugees should be sent to a different country. Why aren't we like Americans, I have heard they always turn boats away, correct me if I have misheard or misread please? Their government should be resolving their own country's problems or we could do what Americans do and send in troops?! When does it end. No matter what Australians should be prioritised then the visa applications at the embassies then the rest of the world.

Probably because that completely and utterly lacks compassion for these people. Fleeing violence and persecution and our biggest concern is not for their well-being but the idea that they're "bloody queue-jumpers!"

My wife and I have been waiting for the decision on our visa for more than 13 months now, and despite all the issues and uncertainties it causes our own lives, I accept that if it means people escaping danger are accepted into a safer society such as Australia in a timely manner.

But, then again, maybe my eyes are opened more because my partner is herself from a previously war-torn country, and, thanks to living and speaking to people in that nation for over a year, I gained a pretty good idea of the decisions people would have liked to make when living under such conditions.

I am not so sure I agree with you. If a genuine refugee is prioritised over my girlfriend who can live safely in Argentina without here life being in danger we wouldnt be concerned at all if we have to wait a cpl more months.

The way the US deals with international diplomacy and border protection I am not sure is a model for anyone.
