Hello Mark,

im a 25y old German citizen with an Australian citizen Boyfriend. I visited him from October '17 until November '17 and from December '17 until February '18 on the EVisitor Visa which means i had to leave every 3 months. Now i want to stay for at least 1y (or to be honest dont want to leave at all, im ready to stay with him.) because it is pretty much needed for a Partner Visa. We are together since October '17 so its going to 1y but we didnt live together longer than 2+ months and quiet frankly we dont have much proofs either. So now we didnt see each other since i left in February because the flights are very expansive and we spent all our savings on them. Ive seen for the Working Holiday and for the Visa 600 are sufficent funds needed, around 5000$, which we dont have and probably wont have for a while. My Boyfriend has a fulltime Job, i would live with him and he is paying for me whatever is needed, so i dont really need this 5000$. He is like my Supporter/Sponsor. I know the Officers on the Airport asking barely for the fund prove but when i visited my Boyfriend the second time on the EVisitor i already got asked if i wouldve Money with me and a back flight ticket, i said No and said my Boyfriend is paying/supporting me, he will pay my back flight ticket aswell. So the Officer had a phone call to my Boyfriend asking if im telling him the truth. He confirmed what i said and the Officer let me go through. If my Boyfriend writes a letter saying he will pay and support me with everything, may i get through if i do get ask again for Fund proof?

I just want to see my Boyfriend without leaving every 3 months, which is a waste of money aswell because of these expansive flight Tickets but we are not able to get like 7000$ for Flights and sufficent funds together either. I know the Partner Visa costs around 7000$ aswell but there we have 1y time to save while being together.

What options do we have? Im ready to move to Australia and want nothing more than staying with my Boyfriend. We already think of marring and kids.

Greetings, Jess.

Hi Mark,

I hope you're well. I'm interested in getting my Russian girlfriend to Australia on a tourists visa. I have already contacted several agencies in Sydney and attended a meeting at No Boarders Mirgration though I'm still a little lost. No Boarders is reputable and comes with the price tag ($1200 just for their services). Most of the others are half this. I'm wondering two things? Firstly, can you recommend a good Visa agency. Secondly, is it worth paying such a high amount for a Visa agency's service? Any info would be much appreciate.

Thanks Mark

Regards,
Scott

I have granted a student visa back on 2017. Now I have submitted my EOI for 489 state sponsorship.
I did not declare some job experiences in previous student visa application & form 80 (was not related to my study).
But now, those job experiences became related & i'm claiming points for this.
How this will effect my future visa (if get invitation) application & how to approach it.?
I have all salary slip (cash payments), appointment letters, service experience,release letter etc..
Pls help me....

Hi mark,
Im applying for a carers visa for my grandma and i want to include my wife and kids to the application. Would that affect my application in a sense would jeopardize the granting of my visa? What advise can you give me? Should i add them or not?

Hi Us9135 -

My apologies for the delay in answering your question. A waiver of condition 8503 requires a major change in the applicant's conditions that occured AFTER the visa (with the 8503 condition on it) was granted AND was beyond the control of the applicant. If the major surgery determination by the doctors occurred after she was granted the visitor visa, you might have a chance at it.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

My wife is preparing to appear for her exam in order to get registered as a dentist and also my son needs her most of the time. As my sister has no further stay condition imposed on her visa. If i provide a letter from the surgeon is it possible to get 8503 removed and apply for 1 month extension so she can look after me . She got here 5 days ago so we still have around 24 days left on her visa. Your help is much appreciated.

Hi Ihatewaiting -

My apologies for the delay in answering your question. I expect you've already got this worked out, but I would suggest you get professional assistance. We've seen this develop recently where statements made to border officials at the airport about "intention" are coming back and being held against applicants. After all, if the person had an intention at one time, that doesn't mean that the intention couldn't change at a later time, even a day, week, or month later.

Re withdrawal strategy, that will depend on a number of other factors - would need to discuss with you in a consultation to get more information about your situation in order to then be able to give specific advice.

Best,

Mark Northam

In an informally interviewing my partner informed the border officer that he was not intent to stay in Australia in 12 months and the reason he came back was to have his car sold. The Minister is not satisfy that my partner misleding an officer at airport to granted his tourist visa.
My partner granted a bridge visa A afterlodged our applications and his tourist visa expired 5 months ago.

-My partner provided a return ticket as a evidence of intent to stay temporary, it is true that he wanted to go back after sell his car but I persuaded my partner to lodge application onshore because we need to prepare our evidences of relationship, my partner had a 485visa refusal history because submitted a police check from third company so this time I want to check all the documents before send to agent.

-If we only withdraw his application, will my application be effected? Or should we withdraw our applications and resubmit only mine?

-If he withdraw his application, do we still need give explainations?

Thanks in advance

Hi ShermD -

My apologies for the delay in answering your question. If a person's Resident Return visa expires while they are outside Australia, they cannot use that visa to re-enter. In many cases, and at the discretion of the border control officer at the airport, they can be granted a subclass 773 "Border Visa" which allows them entry to Australia where they can then lodge a new RRV application.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Regards
Sherm

Hi Cupidgirl -

My apologies for the delay in answering your question. The two applications are entirely different, so not a lot of interplay between the two, however you may have 2 challenges with a visitor visa: 1) you've declared your partner relationship with the 461 application, so DHA may think he's coming not for temporary reasons, but to stay with you; 2) He's from a very high risk country, which will make getting a visitor visa difficult under any circumstances. Key will be showing he has stronger ties to his home country and people, employers, etc there than he has to anyone in Australia - which is exactly the opposite of the 461 visa where he had to show very strong ties to you.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
