Heartbreak visa

My long time partner came out here for holiday from the UK and we decided to go for the prospective marriage visa. I am Oz citizen, on his return he had a stroke and has not been able to work since. I am full time employed and fear though that funds I have will not be enough and Assurance of Support will be asked for, does anyone know how much that will entail? Would having a good bank account in the first place as a sponsor will avoid that? If so any idea how much i would need to show? I am in such a dilemma to spend the money for the application and if it got rejected because of finances then i wouldn't be able to get back to the UK to be with him..The fact that he has had the stroke apparently will not necessarily effect the application. Any advise on anything would help me.

Hi Jane,
Had tried to reply to your PM but you do not have receiving activated and so a cut and paste.
[QUOTE][Hi Jane,
Sorry to hear of your friends ailment and your joint dilemma.

If you're here in Australia now and your fella is in the UK, you've really nailed your options already, ie.
1. He applies for a PMV

2. Nothing wrong with him coming out on a holiday and obviously better if he is recovered and well enough re travel which he needs to be anytime either way.

So you decide on his holiday here that you want things more permanent and some people do decide to apply for a partner visa onshore and reason there are onshore and offshore ones.

The thing that DIAC can catch people out on is if they enter on the intent of doing something for which their visa does not allow, more along lines of illegal working etc.

So in his case for travel, if it is for travel/visit in the first instance, probably not an issue.

The other area that can become a problem is if they stick a no further stay condition on his visa, something that happens at random, more for tourist visas, so an eVisa is possibly better [and free] and for a cheap fare, Welcome to AirAsia.com, The World's Best Low-Cost Airline ex Stansted have pretty cheap flights too.

As for what may happen in future and if you're working yourself and have accommodation, I'd suspect that ought to be sufficient to not require an AoS.

All the best.

Thanks so much for that, I actually called up Centrelink today and immigration and low and behold you wont be asked for an AoS under the PMV,, I checked and double checked and was told over and over that it is not necessary as you are not yet married. As for him coming out on a holiday visa, would you only be able to apply for a e visa after the flight was booked, because simply if you could see there would be :no further stay" then you would book a one way. Ah!! but that would alert them as the intent i guess to stay. Am i on the right track??
You have been wonderful here thanks so much.. Cant wait to get your reply..x

One of the reasons for booking one way flights is that there can be an intention to travel about the country and you want flexibility as to where you leave the country from and to decide later on what Asian stopover you might want.
A PMV is only able to be applied for from outside of the country too.

that's weird because I was asked for an AOS and we applied for the prospective marriage visa! Although that more than likely has to do with the fact that I am only 21.. and my salary is between 50k-70k.. but still.. very strange lol
