No. It was to do with the co and also the agent did not supply everything they gave them. You can read her stories.

My fiance got approved and we had 2 tourist visa rejections.

Does it matter wether the PMV applicant has a job or not?
does it make her application stronger or weeker and why?

thanks very much

Joint account

for openning the joint account off shore, in order to be active, is that enough that money goes in and out into by cash withdraw or the money has to be transfered from it to the personal bank account of the applicant?

thanks very much

If it's a joint account, then the main thing is that there is evidence of it being used by both members of the couple...which is an indication of the sharing of finances, regardless of where the money comes from.

If you can evidence who makes what deposit, then that is obviously good, but the most important thing is that it is being used jointly (whether that be by both making deposits or both withdrawing or using the money).

As to your question on whether having a job makes your application weaker or stronger, well, they are assessing both your eligibility for the visa and also that your relationship is genuine. Her income or her employment status should not really matter, but, like anything, COs seem to be a power unto themselves and who knows what they deem as important or superfluous. My husband was retired military with no current employment (he has a VA military pension and medical which he used to live off) and I'm not anticipating any problems. He is from a low risk country, however, so his situation may not necessarily translate to your fiancées situation.

I do believe that having a job is more of an issue with tourist visas, than with partner visas.

Not sure about this one but it would depend on the country, the CO and the circumstances. I think that if she had a job ad quit and it doesn't have a job that would raise concerns vs if she had a job and then didn't anymore because she was made redundant or something like that.

The processing time for Kenya usually takes about 18 months that is a long time for her to be without a job. A job will keep her busy and keep her mind off the visa.

Mish, true, but the thing is we are planning while we'r waiting on PMV visa, she applies for tourist visa and her boss wont agree for 3 months withought leave and wont give her a letter, so basically if and only if she gets the tourist visa then has to quit her job which will be in the PMV processing time!

do you see any issue with this? does she even need to inform DIBP that she has quit her job?....

thanks very much

It doesn't matter how the money is going out, but generally people will withdraw it by cash (in a form of hard cash or card at the shop).

Also with a PMV application you do not have to have a joint bank account, but if you do it does help.

If you are opening a joint bank account in Australia just be aware that you will be able to deposit money but you won't be able to withdraw money until she enters Australia and does POI.

Thnkas so much for an excellent response
Just wondering since I will be opening a joint account with her ofshore, obviously I wont be ableto withdraw since I'm in Australia! so, it'll really be her withdrawing and me transfering from Aust to her. is that good enough?

thnaks very much

thanks very much for your response
I've checked with my bank in Australia, they dont open the joint account at all unless they see her in person, that's what they told me!

so, we have to open one in Kenya! but then I will be in Aust and she will only be able to withdraw from it!
I know it's not compulsary for PMV, but I'm trying to make her application as rigid as possible!
