Hi, what's the deal with house and land packages in Australia. Some of the deals look just as good and sometimes better than buying existing housing stock. I am again missing an obvious catch. What is it? Any info on the house buying market welcomed. Eg. Mortgages for immigrants etc. Thanks
Hope someone is willing to help me on my matter here... I am an Australian Citizen, and my wife is a Filipina. She is living in the Philippines now. I am in Australia. We got married in the Philippines in Oct 2008. I stayed there with her for about 6 months, then came back to OZ in March 2009 to join the Air Force, and build a foundation for us here. I ended up going back to see her again in May this year, and stayed for 2 months with her (while my Air Force application was being processed....visas are not the only things that take time! : ) I got back to OZ and then went through some more selection tests, etc, and now I am going into military training in January 2010. Needless to say it's been tough to be apart from my wife, and it's looks like i won't see her for at least another 6 months... Our plan is that she will apply for a tourist visa after i am out of training, and I have accommodation for us, this will probably be around March 2010. So by that time we will have been apart 8 months... oh man... So... is it wise to apply for the tourist visa and be upfront that we are going to apply for an onshore spouse visa? I mean.... after 7 months we don't want to face another nightmare wait for an offshore spouse visa.. Any advice? btw~ the quality of your advice is quite impressive compared to the other sites i have investigated, and I would really be grateful at this difficult time of my married life...i couldn't find a Philippines/Australia site that could match the quality of advice given here.
