Over many years I have never been able to access a free or paid service, but have been willing to pay the $700 or more annual fee.
is that really so as I doubt it . There is a FOA act and must apply to everyone and not
just migration agents or are you suggesting kickbacks ?
What? There are many professions where you are required to pay an annual subscription to receive the up to date information. Lawyers and doctors just to name 2.

The SIMPLE answer!

There are exceptions, I believe two libraries can give "SOME" free access also you can subscribe - but when I tried it seemed it wanted my RMA# (that I do not have) to continue. I may have done something wrong and only tried to subscribe the once.

I found PAM 3 useful for Visitor Visa's, but for Partner Visa's - it is probably dangerous for a non trained professional.

I think it had two purposes.
  1. to cut down the number of applications. (too many people for too few visas)
  2. to increase general tax revenue.
Intentionally or not, the greater the bank account (barring criminals) the greater the intelligence so only smarter and likely working class people, generally speaking, would be able to apply.

Nothing surprises me in this onerous visa process where new draconian rules are always being dreamt up ! ( wry smile ). have a nice weekend .
They certainly can apply for a Visitor Visa but like any Visa, the granting is in the hands of the Immigration Department.

My reasoning behind not going for a Visitor Visa during the PMV 300 wait was the additional time and money involved meeting Visa requirements and a fact the lady would also have to leave the country to receive the Grant (). We had planned to meet in a Visa free zone to avoid those issues.

I certainly wouldn't discourage anyone from applying for a Visitor Visa.

Please update your flag here .

Hi congrats that was so quick application.

Is it possible to have a list of requirements so i got an idea.

Because i already got previous requirements from 2016 application. But i think there's a lot of changes this 2019.

Here's my email [email protected]

In many cases, the PMV fees are paid by the Australian. The applicant could therefore be from any background or intelligence level.

I've seen many instances where the applicant was not working, and don't even have a bank account.

The requirements for a PMV from Russia might be very different to those needed in your country, the Philippines.

I have seen one done from Russia where it was very difficult, yet, at about the same time, it was relatively easy from the Philippines.

your comments appreciated . It is different for me as I would be married and returning to OZ , ie returning resident . But would be nice not to be separated from my future wife for at least 18 months as my age . ( smile ) . thanks again . Incidentally , it is always a 3 month visitor visa or can one apply for , say , 6 months to avoid her having to make too many long trips ? My god , life is never easy when dealing with harsh immigration rules and OZ no longer encourages family life but not as bad as in UK under the obnoxiosu TM !

When I looked last it was up to 12 months one can apply for.

All the information needed is in a step by step online application. If the application requirements are incomprehensible then an immigration agent is another option.
