It's alright.. we'll find a way.
Thanks for your reply

@ Wanderer -
i was under the impression that hospitality was on the list..
i've had a look at it before but i can't seem to find the list anywhere now. If you know where the list of courses which will make a person highly skilled is.. it would be a great help if you could send me a link to that.

if the 12 month tourist visa is impossible... is it possible for him to apply for a tourist visa and continue extending it or will it always have a no further stay condition applied?
You may find some hospitality courses available and if you follow the Student visa section through you'll find under eligibility a link to CRICOS which has the listing of approved courses.
My reference to hospitality was more because it'll still be a significant expense for just six months and not a qualification at the end that'll do anything in regard to someone having a chance to stay here.
For skilled visas eligibility, processing priorities and the SOL have a look via Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and the What's New link.
Any tourist visa will likely have a No Further Stay condition on it and as Sky Dancer indicates, the chances of one being granted are very slim.

This is my story.. i am 17 from Sydney, NSW.. my boyfriend is from India and we are looking for a way for us to be together. He will come in late january 2011 and will be staying with my family and myself. Marriage is not an option for me yet.. so i'm looking for any other way for us to be together other than through a marriage visa.

I have some questions.. if you can answer one that's great if you can answer a few that's fantastic if you can answer them all you are the biggest life saver!

1. if he came here to study a certificate III in hospitality would that qualify him to apply for a work and holiday visa?

2. if he lives with me for 12 months we can then apply for a de facto partner visa. If his chosen course to study goes for less than 12 months then how can we keep him here for a longer period of time?

3. Example.. if he chooses a course to study which goes for 6 months can he then apply for a 6month tourist visa so it will add up to 12 months of living with me?

4. Are there any other options for us?? if there is please let me know.. i am very confused about this whole process and will greatly appreciate any help or advice that is given to me.

Thank you very much
You got your answers for 2 - 4 in your other thread.
1. Indians are not eligible for WHV.
The ways most Indian people can come to Australia are:
. Student visas - temporary residency
Coming on a longer term student visa if funds are available could allow 12 months relationship for a defacto visa but any visa is never a certainty.
. Skilled visas where someone has skills and experience to allow them to meet eligibility requirements - applications taking a lengthy period.
. Partner visas including Prospective Marriage Visas and again there are eligibility requirements to be met.
For instance, have you been to India and actually met one another?

You need to set aside a lot of time to commit to understanding immigration regulations and you may feel less confused.

ok so the best option looks like the student visa.. the only problem is the 12 month+ courses aren't in his price range.
I'll have to have a look around to see if there are any courses he can do which aren't so expensive.. even though it may not be a hospitality course.

We haven't met one another yet as we have been looking for a way he could stay here for a long amount of time without having to leave me after only a short stay. But if we find no other option for him to stay here for a longer amount of time then it seems a good idea for him to come here for a short stay so we can go to immigration agencies, etc together and work out a way for him to stay here permanently.

I have been doing as much research that i can.. but there is only so much time i can put into this as it is my HSC year.. so my education always comes first.. but thank you for your help.. i do understand a lot better now.

I did have one more idea...
my father is a builder with his own business..
if Abhishek studied something related to building.. e.g Project Builder which is listed on the ENSOL.. could my father then sponsor Abhishek to work for him?.. does that mean he would then qualify for an Employer Nomination Scheme (subclass 121/856)?.. thus being able to stay here permanently?.. please correct me if i am wrong.

Thank you for your help,
Katherine.

I would be very surprised if a years study of building is going to get qualifications appropriate to any employer sponsorship.
You need to have a look at what is involved in the various courses and you could ask your father too as he'll know what is involved in people in the building industry getting to an adequate level of training.
And you need to look at the full eligibility requirements for the ENS and one basic one is that it's either two years on a 457 or having three years experience and diploma level qualifications.
Just stick with your HSC and future studies and you never know, you could have a completely different outlook on life before too long.

Thank you
Well our main problem is money.. that's why he can't come on a student visa straight away because of the cost of courses... but he'll have enough to come on a tourist visa.
He will come on a tourist visa for a few months so we can get to know eachother more and also get to know my family..
my parents will write an assurance of support to show that they will be supporting him for all living expenses.
if the worst happens and he is denied a tourist visa then he'll have to stay there until he makes enough money to apply for a course.. but we are keeping positive
After his stay of a few months here he'll then go back to india.. Being away from eachother will hurt but he'll have to go back to make enough money for a course in hospitality.. it has to be a course which goes for at least a year so he can live with me for at least 12 months..
we'll then apply for the partner de facto visa and take it from there.

We both believe in the law of attraction (like attracts alike) so always keeping positive is what will get us together. Nothing is impossible.. we WILL be together

Sounds like a good plan Katherine. After your school year finishes, you could also visit him in India!! I fell in love with India.... that's where I met my husband. It's hard being apart, and I can understand how you feel even now when you haven't met face to face.

The Universe knows what is best for us. True love always finds a way. :-)
