3 Month Turist VISA Philipina - sponsored by AU PR

Hi All,

i met my girlfriend in the phillipines in october , i am a permanent resident of australia for 8 years with a good job (84k+/yr) and a house ...

since i have been to the phillpines to meet her and her family (i have many pictures of this occasion)

i want to invite her to australia for a 3 month visit , i will pay for everything regarding this visit , so just a standard turist visa , i collected all the information about me and my ability to be able to support her while here , in part 32 of the turist visa application it says "how do you support yourself in australia" , is it ok to enter "<my name> will pay for everything during my stay"

i heard from many people that it is easy to get this 3 months turist visa but i want to make sure i am not over looking something? if there is any tips i would greatly appricate them

also is there a difference between calling her my friend or girlfriend from an immigration view?

thank you for reading

There are sponsored tourist visas for family members but in your friend/girlfriend not being family, as far as I know, she just has to apply for a visa and she will probably need to show connections to the Philippines so there is certainty of her returning.
http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/tour...sa-options.htm
You could write a letter outlining your support for her, including your details and being prepared to post a return bond if need be, that meaning you lodge money with Immi and it will be returned when your friend returns to the Philippines and if she overstays her visa, you risk losing it and you could have some people knocking on your door.
She should enclose the letter with her application.

Hi!

thank you for the advise! , yes i am planning to do that already.

i was just wondering if there was some easy tips to apply to our application besides proof of funds and relationship with pictures etc.

she is working as a house keeper and is expected back in 3 months , i hope that is reason enough for the imigration to belive she is going back.

which she will , should i write that in the letter of invitation that i make sure she will go back?

thank you so much for your reply

does your girlfriend have a child?or is working that she needs to really come back after shes in australia?or own a house?if no then she might have trouble getting a tourist visa. a friend of mine was asked by this question but got denied after she said no to the above questions.if not get PMV it takes only 2 months or less to get a visa and also fiance visa.i wish we knew this earlier we could have get PMV than spouse visa.lucky you find this site early.

i am providing the imigration with 30k available funds, 2 payslips showing i can take care of both of us on my salary , a written invitation stating i will do everything to gurantee she will return to the phillipines , i will offer to put up a bond (is that a good idea to offer up front?) , i will include 10 photos of me and her and her family in the phillipines

she has a job as a housekeeper/shop assistant , with written reference and ability to confirm this with the manager of the shop/owner of the house , no baby , no house.

i just want to see how we are living together while i am working , and i want to show her australia and i want her to go back to the phillipines after 3 months.

soo please tell me should i go for a turist visa or fiance' visa?

thank you for a great forum

i think a bond is a must when you apply for a tourist visa. is your gf working full time in her job?my husband and i was trying to get tourist visa before but then the embassy told us that dont bother applying for a tourist visa if she dont have a child to go back to in the philippines or no full time job something that will make her really go back to the philippines.you can try to apply tourits visa you might get lucky or get immigration agent and ask about this stuff.and i think you need to read website from embassy it will help you alot especially you said youll going to give them 2 payslips?not enough even in any different visas you need 6 months payslips or tax returns for the last 2 years.read it it will help you.

Touch of pink has referred to the PMV and some of what may be needed to be a sponsor for that type of visa for it leads to marriage and eventually PR.
That is very different to tourism and if she applies for a tourist visa and you have provided a letter offering to lodge a bond, see how she goes with that.

Hi Wanderer

thank you for your valuable help.

happy to say she got the turist visa and are enjoying the many sites of australia and the australian culture!

what is the best way forward if we want to go forward? ... what is easier/quickest? to get ... a spousal visa (if getting married in Au) and she goes back in accordance with her visa and appllies offshore or a fiancee visa ?

touchofpink seems to think (see above) its a fiancee visa? any advice on this? ... i did call a imigration agent and he advised to go for the spousal visa... but that could be just to get the business?

thank you for a great forum

hello znuff yes early last year fiance visa was the easiest way to get a visa in the philippines because it only takes one month for fiance and 3 months for spousal visa there was a timeline difference between the 2 visa but immigration in philippines is slowing down late last year and up to now so most visas like fiance and spousal visa takes 5 months to 6 months your lucky if you get visa in 4 months.so i say spousal visa is the best thing to apply since theres no timeline difference of fiance and spousal both takes 5 months minimum
