Tourist Visa with Spouse medicals already frontloaded.

Hey guys,

As I've said in the title, I'm just wondering what the chances are of getting a Tourist Visa from South Africa, if the medicals for the spouse visa have already been frontloaded? We were going to submit our spouse visa in the coming days but have been held back significantly by various delays so we had already gone ahead and done the medicals for the spouse visa. We're now going to apply for a tourist visa, and if succesful will apply for an offshore spouse visa before my partner heads over to Aus. My only concern is that the medicals will come up on the records as soon as her passport enters the embassy and they will see that she one day hopes to live in Australia therefore denying the toursit visa. Any thoughts or suggestions?? Thanks guys

Tourist visas do not take all that long to be processed and so you could avoid any possibility of what you feel could happen by getting on with the partner visa and get it lodged prior to the tourist visa or just do what you plan and see what happens.

Hi Wanderer,

Thanks for the reply. Are you suggesting that it would put us in a better situation in regards to getting the Tourist Visa approved if we were to apply for the partner visa first??

I'd not expect that applying for the partner visa first is going to detract from getting a tourist visa and that is what others have done at times.
