help with tourist visa

Hi I am after some advice on a tourist visa for my girlfriend and her son.I would love them to come and visit my family.She is Filipino had overstayed on a Chinese tourist visa and was detained and sent home in 2012.There was no stamp or record in her passport of the overstay or deportation.She will soon apply for a new passport as the old one expired.My questions are. Will this affect her application for a tourist visa to Australia if we mention it ? If she didn't mention the overstay would the Australian Immigration know ? Do they have access to China Immigration? My guess is no.. Will having a new passport help ? And seeing as that I am technically not a partner and I believe the family stream visa is not for us,but can I still sponsor them on a tourist visa ?All financial commitments will be met by me.I have been in a relationship with this girl for 2 years now and we will be applying for a Fiancee Visa at a later date but would like her to come here for Christmas.

Any information appreciated..

Cheers Ron

Hi Ron,

The best advice I could give you if you are longing for a permanent visa later (and in any case) is do not lie to immigration!!

When you apply for a visa, there is a question asking if you have already been refused, or overstayed or been deported. She has to say yes, and explain why. Then immigration will decide; it might not be an issue for the partner visa. However if you don't say anything and they find out it might become a big issue for the partner visa!

As Helene said do not lie to immigration. I will say it could mean that she won't get a tourist visa but it is better than lying about it and getting found out later. Lying to DIBP is fraud.

You mention that you will be applying for the PMV this visa is subject to criterian 4020 which is a fraud case and they look at visas from the last 12 months as well that you have supplied false or misleading information. If found guilty you are subject to a 3 year band for all visa's that are subject to the criterian 4020.

Do not supply false or misleading information to DIBP it is not worth it!

I agree with Helene's advice - do not lie on a visa application. If she applies for a visitor visa she should admit to the overstay, and if asked about this she should be honest as to what happened. It's possible this would affect her visitor visa application, but it shouldn't affect the eventual PMV application.

Yeah the last thing i want to do is ruin the PMV we will apply for later.I will draft a letter explaining her overstay and hope it helps.We will also get our attorney to make a letter explaining her need to go home for the annulment hearings.I would love to have her and her/our son out for Christmas and meet my aging parents as the PMV is a long way off due to her annulment in the Philippines.She was young and naive and caught up in an overseas job scam in China and promised the correct visa.The passport was taken by the agency who promised to update the visas and she never saw it again until I asked her to go home and by then she was 18 months overstay.I spent almost 1 year with them over a 2 year period but can't get anymore time off work..In my eyes she is no risk for overstay because of our future plans,I hope they feel the same.

The length of stay in China changes alot too because she was there over 12 months she will be required to get a police check for China when she applies for the PMV.
