Preggo fiancee of Indo origin working in HK

Hi there, did a search but couldnt find anything that answered my question, been engaged for 6 months to my mrs here in HK, she works here, im a Aussie, but matters have become complicated now she is 6 weeks pregnant. We always planned to get married here in February, register it with Aust Embassy here, get her a tourist visa, then apply for Spouse visa while she was on "holiday". I cant do this now? Is there another course i should follow? Thanks

You have a couple of options. You could apply for a PMV 300 (Prospective marriage visa) ASAP. That would allow you to get married in Australia and doesn't require as much evidence as a partner visa but you may have problems doing the medical with her being pregnant. That is true of a partner visa too. You could get married ASAP and then apply for a 309 partner visa offshore but the same problem applies with the medical. Due to the need for an X Ray, I don't see them granting any type of visa until after the birth of the baby.

Yes, the x ray. As I understand it, they can't do the xrays required to complete the medical until after the pregnancy and therefore that will delay any grant of a visa until that time.

She may choose to take the risk of an x-ray anyway or if she was from a low risk country it may be deferred but I don't think that would apply in her case.


From the immigration site:
http://www.immi.gov.au/gateways/pane...structions.pdf

8.8 Pregnant women and x-ray examinations
The Australian Government does not recommend the taking of screening chest x-rays during pregnancy.
Consequently, women should be advised that they have the option of:

• deferring their chest x-ray, and therefore the finalisation of their visa application, until after the birth, or
• following counselling, if they so choose to proceed with the x-ray examination with appropriate abdominal
shielding after the first trimester

Note: In lower-medium risk TB countries the department has removed the need for chest x-ray of pregnant
women but in these situations applicant should be B graded so that Global Health can place the applicant on a
health undertaking for follow up for TB screening in Australia after pregnancy.

A full explanation of the risks must be provided by the panel physician or the pregnant woman’s treating
physician before the applicant makes a decision as to whether to proceed.

If, after a full explanation of the risks, a pregnant woman elects to undergo a chest x-ray, the following guidelines
followed:

• the field size must be strictly limited to include the chest only (that is. not the abdomen or head)
• the radiology clinic must confirm on the paper x-ray examination report (Form 160) or in eHealth that
informed consent has been obtained
• double wrap around abdominal and pelvic shielding must be used.



16
For applicants who choose to delay the x-ray till after childbirth, reference should be made on the paper medical
examination report (Form 26) or in eHealth, to the presence, or absence, of any history or clinical evidence of TB
and the countries in which the applicant has lived in the past five years.

All women of reproductive age should be asked about the date of their last menstrual period.





Hope that helps,

Kttykat

That may not work. There is a significant chance that she would end up with an 8503 "no further stay" condition on any tourist visa. That would mean that you couldn't apply for another visa while she was in Australia.

Yes, with the 300 PMV or 309 partner, the expectation is that she would remain outside of the country until the visa is granted. She must be outside of Australia when the visa is granted.

Thanks, so in Feb, she comes for few months on tourist visa, goes back to Indo gives birth, comes here for holiday, apply for PMV here? Would that attract a no further stay? Better to get married in HK? Indo or here?
