Working Holiday

Hi,

my fiancée is Australian and we want to move to Australia and we wanted to go with the fiancée visa however as I already have a job offer over there (I transfer with a company) they want me to go with a working holiday visa and then there apply for a fiancée visa so they can have me start working earlier.

I just wanted to have your thoughts on that!

Thanks!

Hey Stevh,

I reckon its a good idea to apply while you are in Australia as I did the same. However you gotta know that you will have to pay extra i think its around $800 extra than offshore application. Apart from that, I think you are sweet as long as you can demonstrate your relationship with your fiance.

Well, there is nothing wrong with getting either... I mean you can always apply for a partner visa once you are settled in Australia or you can still work with a partner visa...

Hang on a second though--why won't they just sponder you for a employer sponsored skilled migration? Is it because they don't want you to wait to work?

Can't you go over on working holiday and then apply for a skilled visa--get a briding visa inbetween that will let you work.....or something? I just think its weird that they won't sponsor you...

I mean, right, so if you go WH you gotta pay...then Fiancee....you gotta pay....THEN you gotta pay for a spouse visa!?

I would look into another way to do it.... i mean, it would work but seems like a pretty long winded way to go about it...if the company is willing to pay for the lot, then go for it I guess...

There might not be another way... im not sure really it just seems like an odd situation to me, understandable if they are trying to bypass the wait period for GSM visa's, but get them to help pay for your fiancee and spouse visa then!

When you say you want to apply for a Fiancée visa I assume that you mean the Prospective marriage visa. You can not apply for this visa while you are in Australia as this is an off shore visa.
