Tourist Visa Warning after multiple visits

Hi all. Arrived back in Australia this morning with my wife to spend some more time with family etc after our wedding in Indonesia last weekend. My wife was granted a 3 year tourist visa late last year and in total this is her 4th visit. Immigration pulled her aside today however and long story short said no more entries and that we must look at alternative visa options I.e, Partner etc. Wondered if anyone has had this happened to them previously or know why this has occurred. The reason we are not applying for a partner visa as of yet is she is not planning on living here for quite sometime. Any further information you may need for guidance please just ask. Thanks again.

This is very common unfortunately. She may be turned around next time and have her visa cancelled. Better start doing some long term planning.

They give her a warning, because she is not a genuine tourist anymore, especially when she visits that often. The thing is that you cannot really consider her as a tourist, but a spouse of Australian citizen. Probably start looking at the range of partner visa options. Maybe best to apply for partner visa off shore if she does not have any plans to stay in Australia yet. I am not a migration agent, and this is solely based on my personal opinion.
