What's my next step?

I want to move to Aus. but they won't issue my a visa. Is my only option to find a local guy and marry him?

If you're not eligible for a skilled visa Christine, cannot afford a student visa [ a costly and uncertain approach anyway] I suppose migration via finding a partner might be your best option next to skilling yourself up for permanent immigration.
As an interim measure are you young enough [ up to 30 ] for a Working Holiday Visa?

You do not actually have to marry and establishing an unmarried relationship is what many people have done, elkitten, you'll see in the sticky thread on partner visas being a Canadian and there've been a few who have been posting on the forum.

I really don't appreciate you thinking of even doing this as a way to get into Australia, people doing this just for a visa makes the whole process even longer and harder for those of us who are genuine and are doing it for the right reasons. I really hope if you do decide to go down this path that you get caught and your visa is refused. Sorry if I seem a bit abrupt but genuine people don't need this process to be made any harder by people like you.

Yeah, I totally agree Barrbcow... I've been to hell and back for our spouse visa and we are the most genuine of genuine you can be. We have been put through the shredder because an SMO didn't believe our relationship to be genuine and its because of the people like this, that it happens... If your marrying someone for love ~ YES do that visa, but if your marrying someone for a visa ~ NO thats so wrong and puts so many guenine couples through hell!!!

I agree with Barrbcow.
Trying to get to Australia by dishonest means is disgusting to say the least.
Many people are overseas - stuck waiting for their spouse/fiance/partner visas to be approved, because people like you have been and are continuing to be dishonest to the system to get into Australia, and clogging up the system.
The visa process is extremely longer than before, it's stressful, and invasive and often frustrating because the questions visa officers ask to make sure your relationship is genuine (to sift the fake relationships out) are just hurtful and people who have a genuine on-going relationship don't need this stress on top of everything else.
If you have no way to get into the country honestly, then maybe Australia doesn't want you.

At face value, finding a local guy and marrying him may sound like a marriage of convenience route but a question has merely been asked and who knows, a genuine romance may occur and there's nothing dishonest or disgusting about that.
