Toursit visa query


I have a girlfriend living in Malaysia on a temporary visa there. She holds a Vietnamese passport only.

She would like to visit me in Australia, I have spoken to a immigration lawyer here to clarify some things but they wanted $2200 to process the Visa themselves

Because her work gives little leave she will have to quit to visit. If she is jobless would this affect her chance to get the tourist visa? She has family and rents and apartment in Malaysia so there are assets to her name there.

Any advice on increasing the chances of getting this visa would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Aussie02 -

The loss of her employment would not be helpful in assessing her re: the Genuine Visitor criteria, however her assets and relatives offshore would be helpful. You may want to have a registered migration agent prepare a proper Genuine Visitor submission to accompany the visitor visa application - this is the course we've found works well in these cases. $2200 is quite something for a visitor visa - we charge $950 including the detailed submission.

Hope this helps -
