partner part 2 visa with a drink driving offence

hi everyone

can someone please help me with facts of applying partners part 2 visa or pr with a drink driving offence.i noted that im required to complete form 80 and this form wants me to state all criminal convictions including driving offences.

my case is that i lost my license due to exceeding the prescribed alcohol when driving.i lost my licence for one year and i got it back after going to court .now on the form 80 i have to disclose this offence.

does anyone know if this will stop me from getting my partner part 2 visa.has anyone got his visa in this same situation.please help this issue is making me have sleepless nights.

Hi there,

Take a look at the info from DIAC about character:

Fact Sheet 79 - The Character Requirement

In short, I don't think it will affect your PR app if it was a one time offence and you didn't serve any jail time over 12 months.

Hi

I have a similar case. I was convicted in traffic offence for drunk driving and my license got suspended for 3 years which got over and I too got my licence back. I had applied for temporary residency 485. The rules are the same for PR and TR. Since I got it, I am assuming that they will not count my offence very serious. I have to apply for PR in July. Please do let me if you come accross any new information during the process of your application.
Good Luck

No worries

Your case is similar to mine thank you for the post.yea I will let u know if I come across any new changes and please can you do the same.with the recent migration act changes we need to lookout for the changes especially as these apply to the character test relating to asylum seekers.i dont know if the same changes are going to apply to everyone

Hi varun,aussiegirl and everyone else.

Today 17 May I just read an article in the newspaper the herald sun the writer acussed international students of getting cosy with australians to get partner visas and pr.international students are being acussed of faking love to gain pr.this article is so pathetic and the author isnt neither considerate nor respectful.i was a student as well before I applied for my spouse visa.mine is true love.when I met my wife we just fell in love and never thought we would apply for a spouse visa until I finished my course and was about to go back to my country with her.because she didnt want to leave her family here we both decided to settle here.now what suprises me is that aussies are naturally people who winch when it comes to immigration.there is just a natural winching going around in this country I think if people here dont want other nationalities to come here why cant they just close their borders so simple.for record sake aussie is not the only country where migrants go.look at usa all the people who cross fro mexico either legally or illegally.the number is far more than people who migrate to this country but you dont see stories of people winching in their newspapers.people here should learn to tolerate migrants.first it was refugees then they stopped giving students prs now they want to perpetuate a negative discussion about spouse visas.what a country???

I just came across this forum and registered as a new member becuase I am seeking some advice as similiar to your cases. My husband has a 457 visa and involved in DUI, licence is suspended, waiting for court hearing. Just wonder if he was found guilty, got fined, and most likely 6 months suspensed Driving licence, could we still proceed our PR application? Please let me know how you guys could stay with your job after suspended your licence. We are so worried the boss might dismiss my husband. Could we be deported within 28 days if he lost his job. Appreciate any response.

With respect to your husbands PR application, a 6 month suspended licence for drink driving will not affect the outcome of the application UNLESS holding a valid drivers licence is a pre-requisite to the position his employer will nominate.

In the event your husbands employer decides to terminate his position you will not be 'deported'. You will be given either 28 days to either leave Australia or to make a valid application for a further visa whilst onshore.
