visa question for tourist visa

hi

My partner was told by an embassy person that because he has been in Australia as a student and now if he wants to apply for a tourist visa he may be refused because - she said that other people have been refused - 6 months after being a student.

Do you think this is the case?

I mean surely they let you come back on a tourist visa at some point?

That seems weird.

I would be surprised if it is written up as a regulation but Immigration do make decisions based on historical data in respect to applications from different nationalities, commonly called profiling and there would be a look at the situation by the local people in his country.

I suppose in the case of someone having been on a tourist visa and possibly having had some part-time work whilst studying and having contacts in respect to that there may be the suspicion that working illegally or otherwise overstaying is something that could occur in such circumstances.

There are restrictions placed on a lot of countries re people getting tourist visas and I've heard of people being refused because of reasoning similar to above or in fact bonds having to be lodged as surety for their leaving as scheduled.

The first aspect that would normally be addressed is what ties to his own country has he again formed that would give him reason to promptly return and then having appropriate funding may be the next requirement.

If you're here in Australia or he has friends who are prepared to support an application, that may help.

Just get a couple of statements from people that'll be intended to be visited and may even provide accommodation, statements to advise on intent of the visit etc.

what are valid reasons..to visit? We want to see each other, we haven't for seven months...its so crazy how our lives are dictated by laws, like this. We can't even see each other.

If we say we want to see each other, my partner and I, will they then be suspicious or something? How do we get to live our lives?

thanks so much wanderer.

I suppose if he has already been here on a student visa, I'd be taking an approach of:
. studying did not give him time to see much of Australia at all and that is the reasoning he would use in addition to having a friend who wants to get around and see more of Oz too.
. You could support that by saying you are going travelling/working and want to offer your friend the chance to see more of Australia whilst having a chance to see if you want to pursue a longer term relationship.

But that aside, I was just looking at NZ [ yes we have discussed that ] and on another note, if your partner has qualifications [ architecture is it? ] assessed, is he under 31? for NZ has a WHV for Brazillians - New Zealand Immigration Error Page so he could head there and with the continual exodus of NZers to here, maybe a good chance he''ll even get architectural work there and no problems with you heading there too.

So you spend your year together there and either apply for the partner visa there [ and they can be granted pretty quick there ] or he may even find he can get a more permanent visa for there, get some more experience, maybe even be in a better position to apply for a job here.
