Can I apply for tourist visa 600 family sponsor for my wife and how long do I get the tourist visa for 3 month or 6monhts..?? provided my wife is house wife and not working and has no significant assets in india to show incentive to return back proof, but I am PR and living in sydney for past 1 and half year and has good salary to provide any bond for the visa.. 2. If my wife gets tourist visa for 6 months and she flies to Sydney and case officer request for medicals & pcc, Can we do that medicals and pcc from sydney for my wife while she is on tourist visa here? Applied partner visa for my wife , Chennai: 16/01/2015
Hey Som,

Apologies for the late reply. Welcome to the forum

1. From what I know- to be able to sponsor family on the sponsored visitor visa stream, the sponsor must be resident in Australia for at least 2 years.
Please do check this with others- also if you google "family sponsored visitor visa" it'll take you to the DIBP's website where you'll find the relevant information you're after. If what I know is correct, you won't be able to apply for the sponsored visitor visa unfortunately.

Majority of the applicants from India apply for the normal visitor visa and don't have issues getting them approved. Not all have assets as they live with their in laws or jobs because they are waiting to migrate to another country. Hopefully someone sees this post and helps us out.

2. How long the visitor visa will be granted for depends on your application and the discretion of your case officer. Many get the 1 year multiple entry visa with 3 months maximum stay and some only get 3 months visa. So it's difficult for me to say what factors come into consideration when the case officer is granting the visa.

Because you have applied for the partner visa already, writing a letter saying that the applicant will be abiding by all the conditions of the visitor visa as she will not do anything to jeopardise her partner visa application in processing at the moment- might be helpful in explaining that the applicant will leave Australia before her visitor visa expires.

Please do ask around, I'm sharing the information I've read on this forum as I have never applied for a visitor visa myself.

Hope this helps.
Good luck for both- partner and visitor visa application. Also please ask of you have more questions.
Have a nice weekend!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Sorry I forgot to reply to the later part of the question- you can definitely get your wife's medicals done in Australia.

But I'm not sure about PCC. The document checklist for Indian applicants says the PCC must be issued from the RPO where the applicant's passport was issued from.

You might want to check this with VFS India in Sydney since your PCC application will be submitted there. They should be able to tell you if you're ok to apply for your wife's PCC while she is in Australia on a visitor visa. VFS India takes care of all the consular services for Indian citizens.

Hope this helps.
Good luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Becky,

Thank you very much for the information and It seems that many people are on same boat for visitor visa after applying partner visa offshore as processing time taking too long. I found this forum really amazing as personal experiences gives us better clues even though every applicant is unique in terms of their personal circumstances. Appreciate your time and efforts on this forum.. Have a great weekend..

No worries Som! Happy to help

That's why I tired to generalise the thread as much as I can. Comparing our case with someone else is of no help- as you mentioned every case is different.

No problem, thanks for your appreciation and please do ask if you have any more questions. Do kindly keep us posted.
Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

If you could share the details on applying for visitor visa for wife after applying offshore partner visa 309 that will be great.. Thank you.

Hi Som,

No worries. Sure will share you my experience.

I had applied for Visitor Visa subclass 600 with Form 1419 under Tourist stream two days after applying the Partner Visa 309 subclass. I have been granted the visitor visa in three weeks.

I had requested for a 1 year visa. But while granting my partner got a call from AHC and they said that 3 month visa will be provided with a validity for one year. Once in three month, I have to leave the country and stay offshore for 3 days and come back onshore.
If you want for 6 months you can request for it. But AHC will take the decision whether to give what you requested for.

For partner visa I did medicals in Australia. It can be done by booking online appointment in emedical.immi.gov.in using your HAP ID.

Hope this gives you the necessary information. You can ask me anytime if you want more information.

All the best.

Thank you for your wishes for me

I am also a house wife. I did not provide any financial history of my own. My husband gave his complete financial records and additionally my father's bank statement and IT papers was used. My husband wrote an invitation letter inviting me and the reason explained was we are married and want to live together until I get partner visa. We mentioned in the letter that partner visa is already lodged along with all reference number.
In my case, my father also wrote a letter stating that he will provide additional financial support apart from his son-in-law. This we used for evidence to return back.

Dont worry som. Tourist visa process is simple. This visa needs to be submitted paper based. So gather all ur wife's documents, invitation letter, ur PR docs, financial statements and lodge asap. You will get in 15-20 working days.

All the best

Question Hi

Hi Becky

Thanks a lot for sharing such useful info with us! The waiting period is very stressful ....
I had applied for Partner Visa in April 2014 and I got a mail from AHC in Dec. to submit the PCC from the Regional Passport Office.
Since my passport din't have my husband's name on it,I had to get a new passport and the whole process took about a monts time.
I have submitted my PCC to the person who had asked for the documents.
He said he isn't my CO and I will get one after the submission of PCC.
Can you please tell me how much more time will they take to appoint the CO?????

Thanks
