Tourist visa for Ecuadorian wife

I am Australian and have lived in Ecuador for five years. I have been with my Ecuadorian wife for nearly all this time and we married in September last year. We work together in my business in Ecuador which is registered in my name and I also have real estate investment (which is how I got my resident visa). I have applied for a tourist visa for my wife so she can accompany me and visit my family in Australia for a month. My parents have offered board and accomodation and flight costs (their letter of invitation included in the application). we have no intention of staying in Oz because we have a business here in Ecuador and like living here. I have applied through the Aust. embassy in Chile.

I always assumed that she would get the tourist visa easily enough because she is my wife. Am I correct or can there be problems with this? thanks

I imagine that immigration could be suspicious with situations like that at times though if it is queried and you can show some evidence of intent to return much as you have expressed, it hopefully will not be a problem which it can be more so when someone from a HR country is applying as a single person without any support.

Thanks for your reply Wanderer, they have asked for evidence of our business and I sent the docs, but the business is in my name not in hers although she has worked with me all the time. What is a HR country?

Countries are designated high or low risk for various reasons like health, security and historical data on overstaying.
With the business docs., they'll also hopefully recognise that you are married.
There is also provision for a sponsored visitor visa which you or your parents could be sponsors for in addition to offer of accomodation etc.
