Hi Armit2607sidhu -

My apologies for the delay in answering your question. DHA policy for the 887 visa allows for "normal" vacation/leave times spent out of the country not to be counted against the time you claim living in Australia. This "normal" time is noted in DHA policy as being 3 weeks (21 days) per year, however there is no exact figure specified in policy. As your time so far is substantially greater than that, you may want to consider delaying lodgment (if there are no other considerations that would prevent you from doing so) until you are able to show closer to 2 years of living together time in Australia.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark

My question is about a possible error in the Place of Birth in our overseas Marriage Certificate for a Partner Visa application.

I am an Australian citizen by birth and married a Filipino citizen in the Philippines in 2017. On the Marriage Certificate for my Place of Birth it reads Bondi Bondi Australia. In other words the suburb/city is repeated twice rather than the normal City, State, Country e.g. Bondi NSW Australia.

Now actually there are no headings on the certificate such as Suburb, City, State, Country so it is open to interpretation but we are a bit worried if this would be a problem for our Partner visa application and a possible reason for refusal. We have been advised that getting it corrected in the Philippines can be a lengthy and bureaucratic process.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Voodoo -

Thanks for the note. I think there is a very low possibility that this would cause any issue - if for some reason it did, you could consider getting further documents from whatever office performed the marriage to confirm that the marriage was actually valid and performed.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Partner Visa Query

Hi Mark,

My name is Sayali and I'm currently residing in New Zealand since the last 4 years with my fiance Karan. I am an Australian Citizen and he is a NZ Resident (Indian Citizen) however we would like to migrate to Australia.

We would like to apply for a Partner Visa (801 or 309) however wanted to know if it is possible for Karan to stay in Australia on a visitor visa while the partner visa application is processed. He is allowed multiple entries for a maximum stay of 3 months per entry. We have checked and his current visitor visa is valid for another 2 years and does not have a "no further stay" restriction imposed on it.

Thanking you in advance.

Advice on working visa options

Hi
I'm making enquiries on behalf of my son. He would like to live and work in Australia as his sister and family are in Victoria and my husband and I have applied for the Contributory Parent Visa. I'd really appreciate any advice as the visa options are quite confusing.
He is 33 and would be single He's a qualified plumber and gas engineer* He has limited funds but could be assisted with this
Is it possible to apply for a job from outside Australia and has anyone had success with this in a occupation like his?
He has a history of depression and addiction but is being treated successfully for the depression and is in recovery for alcoholism. Could this affect things?*
I would greatly appreciate any input. Many thanks CARO

I would suggest he consult with a Registered Migration Agent - the sticky on this forum has some very good ones.
It will cost around $230-$270 from info I have - will be money well spent. This often comes off the fee if they do the full Skilled Visa application. I dont know what the costs are for that.
Plumbers can make some pretty good money in Australia.

Hi Mark

Again thank you for your previous advice which helped us enormously. I tried to post a message yesterday but somehow got it all messed up and couldn't delete it, but today it has gone so I'll try again!

I'm making enquiries on behalf of my son. He would like to live and work in Australia as his sister and family are in Victoria and my husband and I have applied for the Contributory Parent Visa. I'd really appreciate any advice as the visa options are quite confusing.

He is 33 and single. He's a qualified plumber and gas engineer in the UK. He has limited funds but he could be assisted with this.

Is it possible to apply for a job first from outside Australia ?

What are the most suitable Visa options for someone in his position?

How long do these visas generally take?

He has a history of depression and addiction but is being treated successfully for the depression and is in recovery for alcoholism. Could this affect things?

I would greatly appreciate any input or advice.

Many thanks
CARO

re-posting my post again as it's beyond the page 3463. Thank you

Hi Mark,

I'm a PR holder of Australia. Is there anyway that someone else can cancel some other persons PR? I'm wondering, what happens if someone else submits my documents for a some other useless temporary visa such as visit visa? will it overwrite my PR status and will I have just a visit visa after that? then after visit visa is expired, I'll have no rights to come to that country. Technically my whole life would be destroyed... that's a very dangerous loophole in their system if it's possible. Our enemies or people in jealousy could easily do those things. Is it possible to loose a PR in that way? Will the government inform me before I submit such kind of document that will cancel my PR status?

Regards
Sherm
