Partner VISA for Immediate Travel

Dear All,

Any advice will make my life much easier.

I have a PR and will be getting married in India on Nov 28th. I am staying in Melbourne currently.

After marriage I wish to get my wife here asap. Pls advice if the below options are possible.

1> My wife applies for a visitor Visa , comes to Australia and then applies for a partner PR Visa .
2>My wife applies for a partner PR Visa from India,and then immediately applies for a Visitor Visa, so that she can be here asap.

I have read the forums , but unfortunately not clear on the process and my status.

We hear that partner temporary PR visa takes 3-4 months and we do not wish to stay apart after marriage for so long. Our intention to apply for a Visitor visa is to be here together asap.

Best Wishes and Many Thanks For Your Responses,
Rahul Gupta

I think what Mondy means is that it is unlikely a visitor visa would be granted so your wife can come to Australia before applying for a partner visa and if she was able to get a visitor visa first it could quite likely have a No Further Stay condition put on it which means she could not apply for a partner visa onshore.

Your best approach is probably to apply for the partner visa when you are in India once married and processing time may be about five months or more.
As soon as you have the partner visa application in you could consider applying for at least a six months visitor visa so if granted your wife could travel to Australia and when the partner visa was ready for granting, she would need to leave Australia to allow granting and it would initially be a TR if granted.

There is of course no guarantee with any visas being granted and though Immi do recognise cultural aspects of different countries such as India where a couple may not have been in a relationship at all prior to a marriage, you may want to check with people in India re the need to be sometime together after marriage before a partner visa would be granted.
It is Immi policy that even a married couple can normally be expected to have nominally six months together for a partner visa to be granted and as Mondy says, his partner visa was not granted.

Dear Wanderer ,

Thanks so much for the response. I will now definitely apply for a partner visa and then immediately apply for a visitor visa for 6 months.
Just one question here...
By doing the above, does it anyway risk / jeopardize my chances of getting either of the above visas , or is it a normal practice.

Best Wishes,
Rahul Gupta

They are two separate visas and will be considered as such, it being something that has been tried in the past but not always with success.

Dear Wanderer ,

Thanks once again for your quick reply.The process is clear with your responses. I shall try for a Visitor Visa after the main 309 application.

Best Wishes,
