Country of Current Residence

In the form 47SP for 820/801 visa it asks...

Q 21) Country of current residence.
Q 22) Current residential address.
Q 23) Address for correspondence


For my wife, country of current residence is the UK. She will arrive in Australia on a tourist visa (without no further stay condition) with myself (an Australian citizen) and we will go and stay in my apartment in Sydney. After a week or so she will submit the 820/801 visa form onshore (in Australia).

Q. What should I write for question 21 above, should I write England or should I write Australia?

I thought I should write England, but then the next question Q.22 asks for a current residential address, which I then wrote the Australian address of my flat in Sydney, which kind of contradicts the previous question. So I'm not sure what to write.

I could write the UK address in current residential address, and then in the next question, address for correspondence, write the Australian address. But this will contradict my address in the form as the spouse, since I will write the Australian address as my current residential address.

What do you think?

The Country of current residence is the Country where your wife is normally resident. That would be the UK. Residence in Immigration terms is the place where she normally lives (at this point in time)

Current Residential Address is your wife's address in her country of residence.

Address for Correspondence is where she is living at the moment that is your Australia.

If she changes her address while the application is being processed she can submit a Form 929 with the change of address (or passport) details.

Regards

so I guess it wont count against us if we have different current residential addresses when submitting the application, even tho we both live at the same address?

Also, I would have thought that for most onshore applications made in Australia it would be normal for the applications current residential address to be in Australia, but again I guess this does not matter, i.e. applying onshore but current residential address is offshore.

I would have put Australia as country of residence since she's applying onshore and then used the Australian address. But since I don't have experience with partner visas, this would have been just a guess.

We put Australia for my husband's 820/801. It is where you are currently living.

That would have been what I did, too, Maggie-May.

do you think this applies also if i am "only" on a tourist visa (3 months)? because I would have thought my country of residence is Germany, so my address should also be the one in Germany. But the address for correspondence is the one i am currently living at in Australia?
thanks for your help

I would follow Jeremy's suggestion and put Germany. Although I initially thought the OP should put Australia, I now think this would be incorrect since being here on a tourist visa, you shouldn't say that you reside in Australia (which would mean you aren't a tourist).

In the case of both Mish and CG, since their partner's were already resident in Australia (having arrived on a PMV), Australia would have been the correct response in their situations.

OK I understand. Although I moved with all my stuff to Australia to now apply for the visa. Our lease contract is also in both our names. So wouldn't it be better to write the same address as my partner? So confusing! Might just ring them and make sure I do it right.

If you phone the DIBP and do the opposite of whatever you are told, there is a good chance that you will be doing the right thing. Try not to go to sleep on hold.
