PCC request: 11/01/19
can you kindly tell me if your wife has to get another German police certificate if the 12 month period has expired even though no longer in germany?? .I ask because my future wife is not an aussie and I will be returning home to OZ with her this year .

She has a tourist visa (600) which is valid until 2020 - so i assume that means her BVA will only be active from then. Good luck with the process, and we'd be happy to share information as the process progresses.
can you kindly tell me what type of tourist visa my none aussie wife should apply for if we plan to come to OZ this year and apply for an onshore spouse visa after about 2 months in OZ ? I understand that she would get a bridging visa lasting until the spouse visa was granted. But how quickly is the bridging visa issued as a tourist visa only kasts for 3 months I think ? thank you

The nationality of your wife might have a bearing on the correct answer.

One issue you might have to take account of is the impending changes to the sponsor. This might come into effect next month.

You may need approval, as sponsor, first, and no one yet knows how long this will take. A 3 month visitor visa may not give enough time.

The bridging visa is issued very quickly after the 820 application, probably the same day.
We applied for the 820 on 14/5/16, and got the bridging visa notice within a few minutes.

just another point if you do not mind . presumably the sponsor approval is dealt with prior to lodging the 820 visa application and is therefore not part of the application. Is it therefore possible to get the approval first from England , where I am at present , or even after I arrive in OZ and then for my future wife to apply for the tourist visa ? So an onshore application is still possible after the change ,. Hopefully a new government might be less hostile to immigrants than Morrison in OZ and Theresa May in UK ( smile ) .

re the above , I saw the following on aussie govt site and wonder how
one can apply for an onshore visa based on what it says about reason for entering . Any comment much appreciated .

Be a genuine visitor
You must only intend to:

stay temporarily in Australia
obey any condition and stay period attached to your visa

may I ask if this was the visa you got please and it talks about up to 12 months , But does that mean one can specify time requested when applying or does the immigration officer decide and no doubt a Russian lady would be discriminated against as comes from "high risk" country ( disgraceful really ) . thanking you .

No idea yet how the new sponsor changes will end up working.

But I gather it might end up making it harder for onshore partner visa applications from a visitor visa. It may even be an intention.

I think that the Labor party in the past had lower overall legal immigration numbers than the Liberals. Who knows what the future holds, if there is a change in government.

thanks for comments . In a way I expected it and was even surprised that there was
an onshore application route or thought it might just apply to special categories like
businessmen and students . Will just have to wait and see what the legislation says if it does become law . maybe a 12 month visitor visa is possible but doubt this will be allowed from a high risk country . ( smile ) . easy to despise politicians as , if their own family was involved , they would be less hard .thanks again

12 month visitor visas from some of the high risk countries (non ETA) do sometimes get issued, when requested . We got one while waiting for the PMV.
