12 month 676 tourist visa

Hi Guys

Do one of you good people have any information about what case to present to acase officer to improve the possibility of having a long stay 12 month or even a 6 month 676 tourist visa approved???

So if you have had a long stay visa approved before, or have heard of some one having one approved, what were there reaons for requesting a long stay visa?? Would it be something along the line of wanting to travel all around the country?

Reason for the question is that im desperatly trying to bring my girlfriend to Australia for as long as possible, the tourist visa really is our only option at the moment before we can apply for a de facto partner visa...the distance is killing us both!!

Please, Please Help!!!

Many many Thanks!!

People I know of who have had a longer term tourist visa granted are usually older, have a longer term travel desire, the funds to support it and sometimes it could be associated with parents having children/grandchildren in Australia.
A tourist visa btw will likely have a No Further Stay condition applied and that will prevent any onshore visa being applied for.

You might need to looking at something like an employer sponsor visa if she has skills or a student visa.

I came over on an ETA (not sure where she is from if that is available for her) which allows you to come in for 12 mths, but only for 3 mths at a time. At the end of my first 3 mths, i applied for an extention of another 3 mths, which I completed online and was fairly simple and quick. After the 6 mth mark I applied for another 6 mth extention. This one was a bit more complex, I had to actually go to an interview..present documents that I had enough money to support myself and yeah basically tell them I wanted to explore more of the country etc. It was granted fairly easy though, since I had all of the documents needed. It was a bit more of a headache this way I suppose than just getting a 12 mth visa up front, but sometimes 12 mth visas come with a "No Further Stay" Condition. Each time i applied for an extension costs 250.00 but it was still less than we would have spent if i had to travel in and out of the country.

Again, not sure if she is from a country that Australia allows ETA's....but just another option for you

Not sure about the 12 mth visa, but I can expect they would want to know tourism plans and she would need to show proof of funds to support herself or you would need to prove that you can support her during the duration of her stay...seeing as how on either, she won't be able to work.

Hope that helps!
