Sounds like the PMV may be most applicable for him and you can find that via Family - Visas & Immigration
Itcould take quite a while to be processed and if he wanted to come back to Australia earlier he could see if he can get a tourist visa as an interim measure but of course he cannot work until he has a PMV granted and he'd need to leave Australia to have the PMV granted.

Is anyone on here or know of anyone from Tunisia applying for a PMV? I am guessing it is a high risk country so will take a long time to process. I have aslo heard of people lodging applications inperson at some embassies and getting an inteview right then. Has anyone experienced this?

Hi Aussie girl!

Welcome to the Forum :-)

I think there are one or two people from Tunisia. They may not find this post of yours. Please start a new thread and mention Tunisia in the heading. It is considered to be a high risk country.

Wish you all the very best on your visa journey!

I could not agree more with that statement. We are paying, we are doing the best to be patient.

There's a UN international convention if not law on asylum seekers and there's obviously a lot of checks to be made where possible for you can imagine doing checks on people from some areas of Afghanistan is next to impossible and it would be extremely difficult re a few other countries too.
Unfortunately, the government elected in 2007 and still now in power as a minority government has handled the situation in such a way it has been like sending a signal out to all and sundry of poorer countries there's a welcome mat out and Australia is a much softer cushier place than where you are living now.
Immi only has so may people to handle this mess and thus boirmal visa applications are going to be delayed.
Tell any Australians you know that this is happening and maybe voters will have a different idea on the governments they vote in.

Hi All,
I'd just like to say that I'm in the exact same boat as all you guys, hubby is from Lebanon, case is being handled in Lebanon, except I've been waiting almost 16 months!!! The assurance of support was accepted, we did the medial check, we did the interview, we handed everything in, but they say that they're still doing the security check!!!! I'm so frustrated, the only reason why we even applied is because we lost our jobs in 2009 due to the economic crisis! my hubby is so depressed because he isn't working, I just came back to Australia 1 month ago to start looking for work. I can't bear the thought being away from my husband when he will have to leave. I know that we need to be patient but it's just so damn hard

Guess we can't fall in love with those from the middle east. Better to be a 60 year old man bringing over a mail order. I hate this bullshit, why can't we get just an answer of how long it will take so this process doesn't screw our lives up anymore. Im in tears every night just thinking about going to Australia without my husband while im carrying his baby. IM SO ANGRY
Hi, OH I HEAR YOU loud and clear. Glad to know Cairo is not the only slow embassy. 10 months here for a refusal, now a further 15 months for tribunal, and then seems a further 9 plus months if remitted back to Cairo. I agree re the 60 yr old man - they would have been granted the following month. Re all the refugees and "boat people" jumping the queue - what can one say. Seems when we pay the big dollars and spend all the time getting our legal papers together we are placed at the bottom of the queue. Seems our partners should have come via boat, at least they would be here, put up in a hotel, fed and freedom bascially. Yes I am also very angry and extremely depressed. but hey im an aussie we do not count or have value it seems. annie123
