thanks kangaroogirl

am Palestinian and if we talking about right is not my right it's privilege ?

i would say our situation is different do you know how many country i can visit without i need visa??

just one country called Jordan means 99.9% rest of the world i need visa to go there

so it's unfair situation , you born with US citizen which equals 95% of all countries you can visit without visa, even if you need to have visa to visit Australia , you can do it online on internet and get visa granted within week.

so all embassy in Palestine or Israel want's papers that's what they want's ,,Country of Papers.

am sure if french or German or American wanna visit Australia and attach the same papers of mine he will be accepted within week, Why you think that? coz i really think it's low risk countries even case officer won't look too much in the application.

if they want palestinian really goes for visting , they will ask me provide us your parents bank statement, or provide us health checks, before getting refused, that's if they want's to help.

and that's Bottom Line.

Unfortunately for people some from countries it does not matter what evidence they provide their visa still gets rejected and it is all based on their nationality.

indeed, i have provided all you can imagine bank statement, confirmation of attending, Proof am university student.

also communicated with Directors of the event of CEBIT to alert the embassy and immigration Department, also good point of return of someone who had finished 3
years in computers, and then have still one more year to finish, it's not making sense that am going and won't return this is the last year for having bachelor degree.

it's suicide and big risk and wrong thinking of leaving university where i spend 3 years in it and for Australia won't be back home and finish

Unfortunately that's the way it works, there are some countries that Australia is extremely restrictive when it comes to issuing visitor visas. Mish's fiance is from Egypt, and even after applying for a Prospective Marriage Visa (in which he has very obviously stated he intends to move to Australia permanently in the future), he still was unable to get a visitor visa to Australia. There are applicants from eastern European countries who have the same issue. If there has been a strong history of people overstaying visas, then DIBP will be very critical of applications for people from those countries.

It seems like Nationality have big impact on the application outcome. If you are from one of those country where Non Return Rate is high, there is more onus on the applicant to provide more evidences and undergo more scrutiny.

I am quoting official wording "The Modified Non-Return Rate is used as an indicator of Visitor visa compliance, and may be considered by decision-makers when assessing visa applications."

See official report : Modified Non-Return Rate Quarterly Report Ending at 31*December 2012

It seems that Palestine have very high non return rate.

Actually I'm Australian. My husband is a US citizen now, but was born in Mexico, and was a Mexican citizen until last year when he became a US citizen. We've faced many hurdles to get to this point.

Mexico is also a high risk country and I know exactly what you're facing as we had the same issues with travel visas back then. You're not the only one, you know - there's no need to be so defensive.

There are many, many high risk countries other than yours, and many people here are facing the issues with higher stakes than a one week holiday.

Many here have partners from high risk countries or are also from high risk countries themselves.

It may be harder to get the visa but it's not impossible. I asked if you supplied supporting documentation to show you had good reason to leave after one week, but you didn't reply. Did you get a letter from your boss to say you were being given a week vacation and were returning on x date? Did you provide a copy of your rental lease or mortgage to show you were maintaining a residence and had not moved out? If not, then these are things you should have supplied to help your application.

And no, it is not your "right" to travel to and enter any country you want, it's nobody's right. It is a privilege as I said.

Plenty of people DO get visas from high risk countries, after they've submitted enough evidence to satisfy the requirements.

Calling Australian officials racist and telling them what you deem is your "right" is not going to help any further attempts to visit Australia.

As far as proving you do not intend to overstay: Bank statement means zero. Proof of attending a conference means zero. They want to know what you have back home that shows you are only taking a holiday. As i said: letters from employer, landlord, family all go a long way....it doesn't sound like you did that.

University studies are something, but plenty of people would quit uni quickly and happily so it doesn't really prove much either.

You also talked in your letter to them about studying in Australia. This would also raise flags for them as it sounds like you are considering living here...

I'm just trying to point out some things you could have done differently, and could do next time if you decide to re-apply.

I'm sorry you didn't get the visa Jaffa. Don't let it deter you from travelling on the future. At least you an come to this forum and ask for advice on presenting the strongest application possible, and there will always be lots of people here who've been through the same thing and who will be happy to help you

I'm sorry but I don't agree with this. For some countries it is vertually impossible to get a tourist visa and Palestine is one of them which is due to the non-return rate I believe.

Egypt has the same return rate and with all the evidence under the sun was still not able to get a visitor visa for my fiance. Also other applicants have faced the same problem . I even know of somewhere where the applicant had work conferences organised in other countries and was partner in 2 companies overseas and still rejected! One thing we all could not change is the economic difference between Egypt and Australia and the civil unrest in Egypt.

One members whose fiance was from Ghana was told to stop trying for a tourist visa as it will never be granted.
