o.k, first off, is your wife australian? I'm guessing she isn't or else you wouldnt have this problem.

You would be the sponsor since you are an Aussie PR and your wife the applicant.

You can choose to put your application together in OR outside of Australia. For example, your wife could enter on another Visa (eg tourist) and you could do your application together in Australia--but I have seen on some pages that customs don't like you doing that, also it is more expensive to lodge your application in Australia.

I don't know where you are exactly, but if you look on the Department of Immigration & Citizenship website and look up your country, it should tell you the address of your regional office. It is probably worth checking out if there are Panel Doctors near you as well as your wife will HAVE to get a medical to get in (all permanent Visa's, including those that are pathways to permanent Visa's require a medical exam).

Here is the link that starts to talk about the Visa you will be applying for: Spouse Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100)

Check both of your eligilibility, and whether you meet all the requirements, get your paperwork together, your wife will have to do police checks and medical exams when the time comes, and lodge your application at your local office.

Hope this helps.

My read elkitten is that Protik [an Oz PR] has gone back to wherever home is/was and got married there to a non Oz citizen/residency holder.

If that is the case Protik, your wife needs to apply for a TR/[PR after two years] visa and you'll find all the details in family part of immigration on immi site.

You'll be the sponsor and your wife could either apply from outside Australia or she would need to apply for a tourist visa or ETA to come earlier with you if thinking of applying for the TR/PR here in Australia.
