Travel During Partner Visa Processing

Dear All,

I am an Aus PR and my wife is a resident Indian.
We submitted the Partner Visa application with all relevant documents on Feb 3rd.
Now, I wish to travel and stay in India until her partner visa gets processed.

Hence, can you pls suggest if the above is OK and it will not effect the outcome of my wife's main Partner Visa application .

Thanks & Best Wishes.

For PRs, there is a requirement in Immi regs that they are normally residing in Australia when sponsoring a partner.
Some strange processing does seem to occur in India and whether or not that regulation is ignored may be up to the Immi people in India until such time that enough strange things are happening that the Australian government decides some auditing is in order.

Thanks wanderer for the prompt response.
I am now unsure after your response on whether I should make a trip back home for 3 months or so.
It has been quite tough for us since we are recently married.

If you have established yourself here as residing in Australia and were when the application was made, it may be OK but one thing Immi will be looking at will be your ability to support an applicant as sponsor.
If you're not working here in Australia you may be asked to provide an Assurer of Support.

Are trips overseas not a good idea

Hi there Wanderer,

I am an Aussie citizen. I went to China in November for 2 weeks after we submitted my wife's 309 application and I have not long returned after spending over 3 weeks together in Jan / Feb. I would think this would further establish that we are in a true marriage rather than a paper one. I am hoping to go to China again in a "couple of months". We advised Immigration that I would be travelling to China for the two trips with our application. Do you think these trips are not good? I have been to China 4 times in the last 10 months (2 trips prior to & 2 trips post).

The tripping over and back to be together will if anything be to your advantage and it is different for a citizen as against PR.
However, there is still the expectation that being married that you would have had nominally at least six months residential time together and evidence of a relationship and marriage alone is no guarantee of a visa being granted.
If you have not had the relationship time together you would have been better off waiting to marry and going for a PMV but now, only time will tell.
