Visitor visa refused while waiting for 309 visa
 
Hi guys my visitor visa has been refused twice. I know it is a long message, but I will appreciate your efforts if you can please read it. I have tried to explain in detail as much as possible.
So I want to visit my husband while I am waiting for 309 visa which we applied in nov 2018. I maybe have a little complex case as I went to Australia on a visitor visa in April 2017 and lodged 457 onshore which automatically issued me bridging visa A and I managed to stay on that visa for 14 months for a decision to come through.. (which never came,
Now case has been withdrawn) and in the meanwhile I got married to my boyfriend who is (Indian origin - Australian citizen) we were dating for last couple of years. Then because I wasn’t on a substantive visa, I couldn’t lodge my spouse visa application onshore and had to return to my home country India in July 2018. As suggested By a registered MARA Agent I tried for a visitor visa again, after coming back to India just free 2 weeks which got refused due to main reason unemployment.. but Afterwards i was told by some other people that I shud have given some time gap after returning to
India. Anyways Later on we decided to lodge 309 Offshore so finally we lodged that application in November 2018.
Afterwards my husband visited me here in India for 6 weeks in December. and now I again applied for a visitor visa in March which got refused on the same basis of unemployment.
I did write a detailed cover letter mentioning my reason for visit which would be our first wedding anniversary on 8th may, and shown my assets here, strong finance evidence as well. Still it has been refused and a the case officer clearly mentioned that although u have enough funds to support yourself but because you are unemployed it is being refused. I also got review right which are very rare I guess. And not even worth it $1700.
Would you have any clue or any experience regarding similar situation. ?
I am really stuck here without my husband.. any suggestions are welcome.
if shud consider visitor family sponsor ?? Or get employed first.. and try with an employment in couple of months. Please help. Has anyone ever got visa after being refused twice?? Please help!! Thankyou for taking out time to read this.

Hello

I am not a MARA and perhaps Nick (CCMS) or Westly (wrussell) may reply however you have been given a reason for the refusal of your Visitor Visa (600) and therefore applying for a 3rd time when unemployed is in my opinion wasting your time and money. Home Affairs need to be satisfied that you WILL leave Australia at the end of your holiday and therefore you need to provide strong evidence to back this up - eg letter from your employer to state your position in the company and the date that you are required back at work. Having sufficient funds to sustain yourself during your holiday is just one of the areas that Home Affairs will consider.

Best of luck!

Hey,

Thank you for your reply but even if I get a job I guess I need to wait for 6-7 months before reapplying to prove stability.

Also as I have been working for the last 10 years and i decided to take a break this time and spend sometime with my family before i permanently move to Australia after the partner visa application is approved.

Do you think considering family sponsored visa could be an option for me as I wont be acquiring a job anytime sooner.

How long does the family sponsored visa is granted for usually 3 months or more??
looking forward to hear your reply.

Australian Sponsored Family Stream Visitor visa.

A sponsor canít be a fiance, in-law, cousin or friend.
The stay period can be up to 12 months.

The refusal rate is higher for the Sponsored Family Stream, compared to the normal Tourist Stream Visa.

During the latest quarterly figures (Apr to Jun 2017), the visitor visa refusal rates were:

7.6% Tourist Stream Visa, with 76 in each 1,000 refused.
21.3% Family Sponsored Tourist Stream Visa, with 213 in each 1,000 refused.

As at April 2019, 75% of Sponsored family stream Visitor visa applications were processed in under 50 days, but 10% took over 69 days.

The requirements, and rejection rates, for Visitor Visas appear to vary depending on the applicant's nationality.
