    validity of 175

    Hi there, I received my 175 in 2011, its states "not to arrive after 2015. I was wondering if it means i can immigrate any time up to 2015. Thanks & regards!

    Partner visa

    Thanks a lot guys, I think all my questions/apprehensions about the off shore application have been addressed. Keep up the good work! I do have a job and a long work history and an even longer relationship history :-) .I do intend to apply before I get married in December.

    Partner visa

    Guys, having decided on the off-shore visa, wondering if the fact that I am not in Oz right now, neither I have a job in Oz, can I still sponsor her? Though we plan on bringing substantial funds to sustain us for a period between 6-12 months, and we can provide proof of their existence.

    Partner visa

    Thanks a lot for your advice, I have been thinking "legally married" will be the most definitive evidence for the application, for certain circumstances prevent us from getting there before December. However, now an offshore application without further ado does seem to be a good idea. The legality of it in Dec will further prove the relationship.

    Partner visa

    Hi George, thanks a lot once again, well I guess I am torn between the 2 choices, I hope I am putting the "problem" correctly: Offshore (Pros): Cheaper, saves time. (Cons): May b she wont get a tourist visa to accompany me (I have to research this, dont know where i read it but it was something like once u apply in 1 cat off shore u cant apply in another until the 1st one is decided), she can definitely not work on the tourist visa. Onshore (Pros): Can get a bridging visa and we don't have to par and may b get the work restriction lifted (if she gets too lonely sitting at home/which 1 is bound to get in a new country with no friends/family). (Cons): "No further stay" on the tourist visa, is it contestable somehow after arrival?, expensive than the off shore.

    Partner visa

    Hi George, thanks a lot for such a comprehensive input, really appreciate it. The cost differential in the onshore/off shore is about $1,000. It does effect me, and the wait as well. However, my predicament being, we are getting married in December, while I have also lost a year on my PR (approved in Sep 10), so not only I dont want to lose another year on it, we dont want to be living in 2 different continents after getting married ( I understand once one applies for a spousal visa offshore, a tourist visa in never granted.). Considering the above, any thoughts on an on shore spousal visa application being the best route. Also i guess one can apply for a permission for work on the basis of financial hardship, once the 820 is submitted. Thanks once again.

    Partner visa

    Ok having looked at some threads, it seems that 820 is a good option, since we will like to be together, though it is expensive than the 309 (almost 1,000 aus $ extra). I guess the way to go about it is, that she comes to oz on a tourist visa e676/which is for about 3 months or less, and we apply for the 820 right away, and she can get a bridging visa/s while our case is decided. Any thoughts?

    Partner visa

    Ok, one more call for help. I guess once one applies for a spouse visa or an immigrant visa, tourist or visit visa is not issued? Therefore, in this scenario, what if she accompanies me to oz on a tourist visa, and we apply for the spouse visa "inside Australia". Any thoughts? will appreciate.

    Partner visa

    Will appreciate if someone could solve my dilemma. I have a permanent resident visa, validated, though I have not moved permanently yet. I intend to get married in next couple of months and apply for the 309, which i understand takes about 6-9 months for approval, my question is how can I bring my going-to-be-spouse to Australia at the time of my move? Please help if anyone has a clue. Thanks.
