Sorry if my thread doesn't make sense as it's very late here in the west but in a quick nutshell.
65 yr old Australian citizen male wants to bring in a 28yr old african female on fiancÚ visa. She has no assets or money and has one child. (I heard you need money or assets)

How easy/ hard ?.....

Thanks.

If they met and physically spent time together for only 2 weeks then it might be questioned but i think if your friend provide proof that they've been talking to each other for that 2 years and up to now then its not a problem but the age difference is a problem,there is a very big difference 37 years gap.but even then immi will not refuse visa only on age gap but if they dont see the genuieness of the relationship of couple.that is only my opinion...just wait for others who will reply and are knowlegeable on this.im sure super moderator wanderer will answer your questions soon

If he can show good funds and ability to support her and her child then they may have a chance, but they will want to have a really strong application on all other grounds I think to overcome the age difference. As the previous poster mentioned they won't refuse you on age alone but I think they will be looking very closely at all the other evidence. They will also look at her ability to support herself when she is here, does she have any skills she could use to work or will she be relying totally on him? Given that he is nearing retirement or even at retirement age then if he is relying on a pension I think that would go badly for them. Make sure lots of strong evidence in all other areas, letters, phone records, msn/skype records, etc.

Hi MaryJayne
I'd say its going to be longer than 6months as I'm sure an african country would be considered high risk... I wouldn't have very much confidence in this app -- a strong app will demonstrate that you have made an effort to understand each others culture (more difficult if you've never been to each others country), have the support of each others family & accepted as partner by friends/social circles (again, difficult if you've never met each others family/friends), have mutual interests... also you'll run into difficulty as you need to submit at least 2 stat decs from australian citz/PRs who have met both parties & can vouch for genuineness of relationship.
I reckon he'd be wasting his money doing an app now. He should go to africa & see her country & meet her family etc first, then he'll have a stronger app as it will help show they are committed to a future together.
Assuming the child is also part of the app, he'll need to have police checks also....

Even I said this...... If he visited her country not only would it look better but you could see if her intentions are in the right place.
How do you marry someone without all this background?
I'm sorry if anyone thinks I am being judgmental I am just cautious and as he asked me to assist with the forms it has had me thinking all sorts of things.

He has the two sat dec's but as she has not been in to Australia these stat dec's only say that they believe it is genuine but haven't met her only him.
So the two stat dec's need to know both parties?

Hi MaryJayne

I reckon your friend has buckleys of getting the visa approved. To give you an idea, my fiance just got his 300 visa approved a couple weeks back (he is also from a high risk country -- in south america), and they expected an AWFUL LOT of documentation & evidence, more than i ever thought. We've been in a relationship for almost 4 years, have travelled extensively together, he's been to australia for a visit, we lived together in UK, i've been to his country 3 times, we've met each others family & have lots of mutual friends, & i could demonstrate that i'd made an effort to learn his native language etc. Yet It was still very difficult to get approved & felt quite touch & go. Our case officer seemed to also place some importance on my last trip to his country (trip was after we'd already submitted the app, she requested evidence of it) . I guess because no-one would go to south america over christmas/new year unless they were in a committed r'ship -- too expensive!

I don't think you have anything to worry about, as trust me, DIAC will go through that app w/ a fine tooth comb to sort the wheat from the chaff. It is very very wise of you not to provide "sponsership" as its an enormous undertaking -- at least 2 years, & you would be responsible for costs for not only her, but her child. I'm sure DIAC will wonder how your friend intends to support the upbringing of a child in Aust if he doesn't have the means to do so.... Also I would not, if i were you, complete a stat dec to attest genuineness of their r'ship if you are at all suspect. It is a stat dec afterall, & there are heavy consequences if they discover you've said something false.

Hi MaryJayne
If he's used the correct DIAC form for the stat dec (form 888), it will specifically say on there that whoever is filling it out should have met both parties. It also asks for the writer to indicate when/where you have met the applicant, & how much contact you've had with them. If the parties writing the stat dec haven't met her then DIAC will place very very little weight on it.
