Question question 17 on form 80 - de facto visa

hey guys!

got a question on form 80 for all of you...

question 17 asks for current residential address. at the moment i live in australia with my boyfriend, it's been over 2 years now. however i am on a tourist visa.

under purpose of visit i know i should write visiting partner/friends and travel, to not look too dodgy. the confusing part is that i do actually live in australia. all my stuff is here. i was just lucky enough to get a 3 year tourist visa, after having explained my situation to the australian embassy of where my current visa was issued.

so like i said, for question 17 i wrote my address in australia. then underneath that it asks for "country of residence". so i wrote australia. would this be correct given my situation?

it doesn't feel right to write in my parents' address for my residential address just because of the technicality of being on a tourist visa. i think if i explain my case enough to my CO, that i do currently live in australia, my points should be valid enough. do you guys agree? anyone else had this problem?

let me know your thoughts....

part 2 of my question ------------------------------------------------------

As you realise, your visa is just for tourism, so you need to be careful about what you say regarding your reason for travel. You could say visiting friends and travel?

Is it really a bad idea to write "Temporary Resident" anytime it asks "Purpose of Visit" on a form? I'm looking at form 47SP and form 80. It just doesn't seem to make sense to write "Tourism / Travel" when my case clearly indicates that I am in Australia just to be with my partner....

Any other ideas anyone? Sorry, this has just been buggin me since the beginning.

So far I've only come up with "Visitor" lol
