Hi everyone. I was just wondering what exactly is the new sponsorship rule and what’s involved in it . Will there be an income requirement from the sponsor ? I’m just asking because my husband is on the disability support pension in Australia and he will be coming with me when we go offshore to apply for the partner visa . My husband wants to apply in May but I was hoping to apply in august as that’s when my bridging visa E expires . He wants to apply in May just in case it comes in to place also if the new rule did kick in before we apply will that mean they will refuse him as he will have no income when he comes over seas with me ?
People will pay $10K...$100K for a visa, but are reluctant to pay $200 (more or less) for professional advice before putting their head in the lion's mouth.
There are some Australian missions that used to advise on their websites not to use as registered migration agent. I have not bothered to check to see whether they still do.
There were (and perhaps still are) course providers that would not accept RMAs as agents, possibly because RMAs would have to tell prospective applicants the truth. 'Education agents' are not supposed to give migration advice (Ha Ha) and they can either lie about the prospects of a certificate 3 in utter BS leading anywhere, or make the weakest possible statement. They face no consequences whatever they do.
Thank you for your time. My apologies. Please ignore my questions before. I misunderstood here. I was advised that BPay is not for all types of visa applications, it is often for online applications but not for all. I will follow the instructions of the department to pay by the available options for my case.
