    Brother in-laws daughter

    G-Day POMSINOZ, Well, my family and I have been in OZ (Wagga Wagga NSW) for 18 months now and we are still living the dream, we may be moving to Townsville in January 2011 (OZ Army and we can only hope). My question is that my brother in-law came to OZ October 09 on a 12 month tourist visa to live with his partner (be together since January 09). Then had a baby daughter March this year and I was wondering what type of visa he could apply for having been with his misses for more than 12 months and having a daughter born in OZ with his surname on the birth certificate. Any help would be very much appreciated. Hope you all had a great easter and you are enjoying the bank holiday. Matt & family :cool:

    676 tourist visa

    G-Day POMSINOZ, Can anyone advise me on the following, my inlaws have been granted there 12 month 676 tourist visa (details in blue & red below). Where I have high lighted in red, does this mean that my inlaws could come over in XMAS 2009 (as planned), stay at my house then go to New Zealand in August 2010 for 2 weeks then return before 11 Sep 2010 to OZ and stay for a further 12 months. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Matt :biggrin: Immigration and Citizenship Date: 11 September 2009 I refer to the application for a Class TR (Tourist) visa for ...MR BLOGS.................................. I am pleased to advise that ..MR BLOGS.......................... has been granted a Subclass 676 Tourist visa. This letter contains important information about the period for which the Subclass 676 Tourist visa is in effect and conditions that attach to that visa. As the visa holder, ........MR.......BLOGS........................................ should carefully read and understand the information provided in this letter. If the visa holder has any concerns or questions about the information provided in this letter, they should contact the office that granted the visa before travelling to Australia. It is recommended that the visa holder keeps a copy of this letter for their personal records and should also carry this letter with them when they are in Australia. If the visa holder is travelling to Australia with members of their immediate family who also applied for a Tourist visa over the Internet, they also must have received a letter advising them of a visa grant. VISA INFORMATION As this Subclass 676 Tourist visa has been granted electronically, the visa holder will not have a visa label placed in their passport. The visa and passport details are electronically recorded on the Australian Entry System for visitors. When the visa holder arrives at an airport to check-in on a flight to Australia, the airline check-in staff can electronically confirm that the visa holder has authority to travel to, enter and remain in Australia. Visa grant number: The visa grant number is a unique number that was assigned to this Subclass 676 Tourist visa when it was granted.. The visa holder should keep this number with them as they may have to provide it to an officer of the Department while they are in Australia. The visa grant number/s associated with this application is/are: Period for which the visa is to remain in effect The Subclass 676 Tourist visa allows the visa holder to travel to and enter Australia on more than 1 occasion until 11 September 2010. The visa holder is permitted to remain in Australia, after each entry, for a period of 12 Months. Please note that in some circumstances the number of occasions the visa holder is permitted to travel to and enter Australia and/or the period within which the visa holder is permitted to remain in Australia, will differ from what was requested by the visa holder in his/her Class TR visa application. The number of occasions the visa applicant is permitted to travel to and enter Australia and/or the period within which the visa holder is permitted to remain in Australia cannot be changed once the visa has been granted. It is important that the visa holder does not remain in Australia after their Subclass 676 Tourist visa ceases. If they do so, they will become an unlawful non-citizen and must be detained and removed from Australia (unless they make a valid application for, and are granted, a visa of another class). Visa Conditions: The Subclass 676 Tourist visa has been granted with the following conditions. NO WORK - 8101 You must not engage in work in Australia. "Work" means an activity that, in Australia, normally attracts remuneration. MAXIMUM 3 MONTHS STUDY - 8201 While in Australia you must not engage in any studies or training for more than 3 months. X-RAY IF INTEND TO STUDY - 8205 If you are at least 11 years of age and you intend to study in a class-room environment for a period greater than 4 weeks, you must, before commencing that study, pass a chest X-ray examination carried out by a medical practitioner who is qualified as a radiologist. NO FURTHER STAY - 8503 You will not be entitled to be granted a substantive visa other than a Protection visa, while you remain in Australia. It is very important that the visa holder understands and abides by their visa conditions. If the visa holder does not abide by their visa conditions, their visa may be cancelled and they will become an unlawful non-citizen and must be detained and removed from Australia (unless they make a valid application for, and are granted, a visa of another class). If the visa holder has any questions or concerns about when their visa is in effect and/or their visa conditions, they should e-mail the Helpdesk at eVisa.676.Helpdesk@immi.gov.au or contact an office of the Department. For contact details go to Contact Us - Department of Immigration and Citizenship

    Tourist visa 676 help

    Hi All, Don't know where to start, my inlaws are coming over on the 26 Dec 09 and are wanting to stay for 1 year (2 years would be nice). I have spoken to DIAC in Sydney and they advised my to complete the 676 Toursit Visa (Application Form 48R) with a letter of invite. Having looked at this application form, question 1 asked for your date of entry and date of departure. If this is the case how could they stay in Aus for up to 2 years on this Visa of which I have seen on PIO threads. Application form 48 (676 Toursit Visa) however does not have question 1, whats the difference between the two Vias's. Additional Info: 1. Inlaws have got 3 pensions between them (1 Army & 2 State). 2. Aged 64 and 62 3. Savings 4. Staying at my house rent free 5. My wife & I both PR (I will be a Aus Citizen in a few weeks) 6. My Family and I have been PR's for 1 year (I'm Aus Army thats why I have Aus Citizanship early) 7. Inlaws Visting grand children and us. 8. English passport holders. 9. No medical conditions. Any advice would be mostly appreciated. Matt :arghh:

    Luggage Allowance

    Hi, I thought that it depends on the airline you fly with, not your VISA you are allocated. Be aware that you will get around 30kgs per person, thats all good and well but if you have to use domestics flights in Australia you will only be allowed 20Kgs per person then it's around $20 per Kilo over, you work out the maths. Hope this helps. Matt

    Long term tourist visa

    Eurosyl, My Inlaws are coming over on Boxing day this year and are hoping to stay for the year. I was under the impression that on a tourist visa 676 you could only stay for a year and then had to leave the country (AUS). Have I read your thread correctly that my inlaws could come over for 11 months go on holiday to New Zealand for 2 weeks then come back to Aus for another 12 months. My inlaws will be staying with me and my family, they will have their own money, savings + pensions, I have also writen a letter of invitation. My family and I are all Permanent Residences. Regards Matt

    Marmite

    Hi All, Has anyone brought MARMITE into Australia, the reason I ask is that my brother in-law is coming over in two weeks for a holiday and he said he would bring some MARMITE over for me. However I dont want him to get into trouble and get a fine at Sydney airport. I have looked on the Gov website but is says nothing about MARMITE I would assume as long as you declare it you should be OK. Regards Matt :biggrin:

    676 tourist visa

    Hi All, Can anyone tell me if they have applied for a 676 Tourist Visa for a year. My inlaws are hoping to come over in Dec 09 for a year but the application form does not ask for the date of entry or departure. The last thing my inlaws want is a Visa dated wrong, this is the only Visa they can apply for at this present moment in time. Regards Matt :arghh:

    Court Order to remove our child from the UK???

    Very strange indeed, I would phone your case officer and asked why they require this information. My wife and I never had to do this and we have three children, may be they have not checked your application properly and they have made a error with this request, CALL THEM.
