Hi Mark,
You are a generous man taking time out to answer all questions on here.

I met my fiance while studying in China. I am an Australian born citizen. He applied for a 300 prospective marriage visa in May 2014.
in June 2014 we were advised a case officer has been allocated. No further correspondence since then.
My fiance knows of others who applied for a 309 visa who had phone interviews a month after submission and their visas granted after 9 months.
Is there a different process for 300 visas? We are just a little concerned.
Thank you,
(STOP) Hammertime.

CO has asked for us to arrange Military Certificate??
In Sudan, military is not compulsory at all! Sometimes you are able to fulfill duties such as work for free for 1 year or not even if you are an only child of your widowed mother, etc....
I explained that so now we have to arrange a clearance document.
When individuals leave the country, usually there is a small fee to pay on exit. That is the only thing required by the country.

Do you have any idea where a certificate like this can/should be obtained from?

Hi Mark

Thank you very much for all your advice. I applied for the eVisitor on the 26th and it was granted on the 28th, needless to say I'm delighted

I'm amazed immigration didn't ask for further information regarding my application, however my previous applications were always straight up and everything was always in order.

Out of curiosity is it normal for this to happen?

Thanks Mark for all your kindness to everyone on this forum

Re: this application, you'll want to make sure to include lots of evidence of the purpose of the trip, an invitation & itinerary from the inviter, etc - hopefully whatever it was that caused a problem last time will be seen to be in the past, etc however a previous refusal for the same type of visa will increase the scrutiny on your current visa application in many cases.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Hi Mark,

We all here are thankful for your generosity of answering our questions despite of your busy schedules.

We are planning to apply tourist visa next month for a visit to my fiance and for wedding preparations. There is a question here, "Does the applicant intend to enter Australia on more than one occasion?", when i click yes and i will say i might have to apply another tourist visa if ever i cannot finish all the things needed to prepare for the wedding, would that be a valid reason?

Thanks,
Megz

Hi Megz -

Thanks for the kind words! That can work, however this question typically is designed to see if the applicant plans to come and go from Australia (ie, come to Australia, then go to NZ for a week, then back to Australia, etc during their time in Australia). If you answer Yes to this question and DIBP approves, that can result in a multiple-entry visa vs single-entry.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Hammertime -

The processing for the subclass 300 PMV visa can be different, in that it is not a permanent visa and there are various parts of the 309/100 assessment that are not present in the 300. I wouldn't read too much into the timetable - generally the 300's take 9+ months to process, and DIBP has been playing around with different modes of processing including doing a quick check shortly after application for any missing documents, etc.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Ned -

Wish I had details for you on this but have not run across it before - sounds like getting some sort of a letter or statement, etc from the officials in Sudan may be the solution, but I don't have any specific directions or advice for this.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi HarryD -

Thanks for the kind words! Yes, this is typical processing for an eVisitor visitor where there are no "issues" such as convictions, health issues, unusual requests, etc.

Hope you enjoy your trip to Australia!

Best,

Mark Northam

permanent residency in Australia after one-year master degree in business

Dear Mr/ Mark


How are you? i hope you are feeling very good in the time you read this.
I wrote you couple of days ago concerning obtaining the permanent residency in Australia after master degree and you kindly advised me to apply for a two year master degree to be able to be eligible for temporary graduate visa subclass 485.

This idea seems to be great but it's too long and too expensive for me, because i have only the budget for tuition fees and living expenses for one year plus the immigration lawyer fees. So i want to know if there is any chance to apply for the permanent residency in Australia after one year master degree in business or master degree in accounting and finance (After Graduation) from within Australia without leaving the country?????

Actually i intend to study at New England University, which lies in Armidale (That's mean it's in Regional Australia)

In conclusion, I would like to know, after graduation of one year master degree of business or accounting and finance from the university of New England, Is that possible to obtain the permanent residency through Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme Visa (subclass 187) Or Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189) Or Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190) from within Australia without leaving the country ???????

Kind Regards

Subclass 489

Hello Mark,

I recently joined this forum and I found your thread. I've been browsing some questions of other members that you answer. This is so kind of you!

I have a question regarding the subclass 489 Family Sponsored pathway. (maternal uncle) I have a relative who will sponsor me that lives in Mackay 4740, Queensland. What documents do I need to provide to be able to show evidence for this relationship?

and also about the Designated areas of Australia, do I have to stay with my relative sponsor in his area when I get my visa, or can I stay in other designated areas upon my initial entry, lets say in Victoria?

and also, I must take this opportunity to ask for the PR Pathway (887), do I need to stay for two years and work for a year in one designated area only to be eligible for this application or I can have:

6 months in Mackay
1 year 6 months in Victoria

is it cumulative, as long as you are in a designated area?

Thank you so much for you time, Mark.
