600 Visit Visa Refusal

Hi Mark,

My Sister-in-Law recently applied for a 3 month 600 Visit Visa (Tourist Stream) from Pakistan to visit us supporting my wife during her pregnancy and post delivery. She is a student and her Father with excellent bank balance was bearing all costs towards her Visit and daily needs. I sent an invitation letter and letter from Hospital and GP. I also submitted my bank statement and salary slips. Her visa was refused stating that she is a Student and does not have an incentive to return back to her Country and they are concerned that she won't stay in Australia temporarily.

I have been given right to appeal in tribunal. The situation is that my Wife has given birth to the baby and needs care at home.

Can you please tell me if my wife can re-apply with a different visa (Family Sponsored) but she is only a House Wife and dependent on me. I work full-time and earn a good salary. We have a joint bank account where she can show 10,000$ in her bank as financially capability to support her Sister's visit. Also, she can attach my salary slips as well.

Can you please guide us the best way and visa type including supporting documents?

Best regards,

Shabrati Mamu

Hi Mark! Im a newbie here. Just needed some information regarding which Visa i should apply. Im currently holding a Tourist Visa and im engaged with my Australian partner. We are getting married on August 28 2018. I will be in Australia a few weeks before the wedding and my question is, if we will be applying the Visa online can we lodge it before the wedding and just send the necessary documents after. And which Visa should I be applying to? The PMV? Or Partner Visa?

Points scored at invitation considered?

Hi Mark

My husband is preparing to apply for PR visa under sub class 189 under code 2613 - Software and Application programmers. His skill assessment via ACS is currently under process, after submitting additional documents and is expected to be completed in 3 weeks. He is aged 32 and wil turn 33 in mid October 2018.
Under current circumstances, the points scored by him are 75, however, after mid October, points will be reduced to 70. Do you think he stands a chance to be invited for PR?
I have read that the points at the time of issuing invitation are considered?

Thank you!

Hi Mark,

I want to ask that If someone has got student visa for diploma in business and advance and changes the mind before commencing the course and now intending to study cert 3, 4 and diploma in Automotive Technology length of both courses are same.

Now does he/she need to apply for new visa or he can continue to study on same visa ? Would there be any complications in case he changes the course?

Any advise would be highly appreciated.

Hi Mark. I work for a public hospital (government health department) and organise recruitment/ TSS 482 Visas for the international trainee doctors appointed by the department. They are due to start work early August and without instruction have gone ahead and booked their flights before receiving their Visa Grant notice. I have been them advising that as a last resort, if their 482 visa is still processing 3 days before their flight date, they can apply for a evisitors 651 visa to get into Australia and then wait for 482 whilst here. My question is, will this delay the processing time, or decrease their chances in obtaining a 482 Visa? There were never any issues doing this for 457 visas - not sure with new TSS.
We are an approved sponsor and employing doctors on medium term stream with ANZSCO code 253111 - General practitioner.

Regarding the doctors submitting their applications on IMMI - to get the ball rolling we tell the doctors to submit their applications incomplete, even if they don't have everything required to upload to IMMI. I have been told this will speed up the reviewing process, as getting medical board registration in Australia takes forever and evidence of this is a requirement for uploading to IMMI. Is it better to submit it and get the request for more info email, then upload requests from email? Or would it be better to wait until all evidence has been gathered and upload all at once (and not recieve request for more info - assuming everything is correct)?
