Hello Wondering loud,
I don't know you are an applicant, a secondary applicant, employer, MA or among one of the DIBP staff. You have taken it too personally. I didn't mean to hurt ur feelings about Australia.
It is a bit harsh to listen and accept the reality many other countries are accepting resident,spouse applications and doing the same with a fee of max. $100 or $200 and responding in 6months whereas $6000 is a lot of money with 2 years waiting time and morever rejections with no documents request.
When overseas applicants enter the country they are meant to qualify a English exam with a decent score. So it means they have decent English to study/work in Australian workplace.
Besides providing English results at the time of application CO demands IELTS again ? So they are basically educated with good verbal and written english but just not right for their job. They made the concept of VAC 2 for secondary applicant (only in Australia) just to fetch one more time money from migrants.
Fraud marriages are not only for migration purposes. There are some other reasons as well. It is ofcourse not wise to blindly distribute visas but there are many genuine applicants who are suffering. Paying huge sums of money and suffering due to refusals based on assumptions.
What would you call when an Australian couple intentionally living apart on two different addresses just to receive better payments. They aren't dodgy ? Right ?
Now 10 years old involved in crime are not only in Australia but steps/actions towards it are more important which are at present not in any way to save rest of the children from spoiling. (read some news how these so called kids are nuisance to shopping centres and businesses. Parents are scared to send their children unsupervised 500mts away from their homes. (They discourage other children to play openly and freely)
If you believe the refusals are due to dodgy MA then let me just tell u these dodgy MA's can bring a successful student visa with incomplete documents and n no. of s56 requests and u probably know why i do not want to mention the reason otherwise u will feel a bit harsh again.
DIBP have insurance because they do not believe their own people can actually say/do something over the phone which is not correct or nowhere related. Basically they are not trained and knowledgeable enough to answer the question rather they should just surrender instead of misguiding someone who is already stressed. Incomplete knowledge is very dangerous.
When my house got robbed an Australian police officer showed me photographs of who robbed my house but their legislation doesn't allow them to forcefully recover my belongings or ask them where they are. Robbers have rights to hire a lawyer and get bail immidiately .The Officer aplogised to me that he couldn't do anything for me and said that Australia is not Australia anymore. It not safe now.
Just a suggestion try spending two weeks in a regional area in a house. You will come to know Australia in two weeks when ur door gets a knock in the middle of the night and person outside needs water or someone peeping through ur curtain during the day. What will u do ? Honestly.... Police won't help u on this as this is not a crime yet.
I do not need your suggestion upon my migration. No offence. In case I become successful in migrating I will definitely try to make Australia a better place.
