See, you didn't mention that you'd lived together before. Do you have good evidence of that?

Either way, three months is a really short window of time for getting this all done. The 30-day NOIM lodgement period, time collecting evidence of husband and wife, and her applying in enough time to make sure everything's okay before her visa expires... that's a lot to cram into three months.

Fortunately if you are living together from Day 1 when she gets there, and collecting evidence, given all the evidence you (hopefully) have from living together previously, you'd probably be okay with waiting just a little bit to lodge the NOIM. I wouldn't wait TOO long though. All this stuff will take more time than you think.

I thought from what he said that OP's gf already had her tourist visa. What I was saying, OP, is that if she's going to get that condition, it's already there on her grant letter. Yes, it's bad - it would mean she couldn't apply onshore.

I think it is more important that you already have sufficient evidence to show that your relationship is genuine.

she isn't in Australia yet,
she will be coming on march 2014
i have read somewhere that almost every tourist visa has a condition 8503
which means it would most likely mean my girlfriend would also have a condition 8503
that means we would only be wasting time and money in the long run.
when she arrives we realise 8503 is imposed and stays in australia for 3 months and has to go back to her country and apply an off-shore visa

so my question is
when is a condition 8503 be imposed?
previous criminal records or something like that?
or is 8503 the condition that comes with every temporary visa now?

You will know whether her tourist visa has condition 8503 when the visa is being granted.

I understand she isn't there yet. I thought you had already applied for her tourist visa and it had been granted.

It's definitely NOT true that every tourist visa has condition 8503 imposed. Nor is it only ever applied to people with criminal records. If she doesn't have her tourist visa, unfortunately there's no way to predict whether she'll get this condition imposed or not. It's more likely if she's from a high-risk country.

Good. Hopefully she'll be okay then.

Hi All -

Just jumping into this as the thread happened overnight Australia time. It can be hard to predict when 8503 will be imposed, but the two most common causes are the applicant being from a higher-risk country, and the applicant having a history of multiple visitor visas in fairly quick succession where that person could be stringing together multiple visitor visas to establish a "pattern of residency" in Australia.

As stated earlier, I would never advocate lying to DIAC. That being said, you may wish to delay your decision about whether to get married until you get here, assuming she gets a visitor visa without condition 8503. Should you decide to get married here, there are lots of marriage celebrants who can assist and put things together in short order. They are unconcerned about any visa issues, only want to make sure that you both are of age to be legally married, etc. Since you're thinking about getting married, it might not hurt to speak to a celebrant or two and see what their process is.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you all.
I just have one more question,

Would my girlfriend be able to come on the ETA Visa?
or is it not a visa at all but just electronic systems for different visas?

If it indeed is a Visa would she be able to come on a tourist visa
with no condition 8503 on her visa?
