  1. Hello Guys, I have a question regarding spouse VISA application. I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for around 12 years and now planning to get married by end of April this year (2014). I am a permanent resident of Australia as well. My plan is to get my girlfriend (later wife) right away along with me once our marriage is done. Hence I wanted to ask you few questions: 1) Under what VISA (spouse) would she would be applying from offshore (India) 2) If we apply for spouse VISA from India and get all documents ready/ medicals done/ police checks done, can she travel with me to Australia on Visitors Visa for few months? Does her travelling make any changes in terms of timelines in getting her spouse visa granted? 3) In-case she travels on Visitors visa while her spouse visa is being processed back home in India and by the time there is a decision made on confirming her visa, do you think it would be a problem if at that time she is in Australia with me? 4) As per the forums I have gone through it takes around 6-8 months roughly to get a spouse Visa granted in India. Any people over here who happen to get their Spouse Visa’s before the said timeline or others who are still awaiting a confirmation after a year or so. If yes, what is the reason for the delay? 5) One important thing. My GF has a medical condition known as ‘ulcerative colitis’. Would this create any problems while getting her medicals done? I would appreciate your response on the above questions. If possible, try to be as brief and clear as you can so others would gain first-hand knowledge from your experience. Thanks guys. Cheers.

    Spouse Visa Waiting Time 2013

    Hello everyone, After reading as many threads as I could I thought to post my story and hope to read yours. I am French, lived in the UK for the past 20 years. I am married to an Aussie and we have a little girl. We are hoping to move to Perth in the not too distant future. We lodged all our papers at the end of January this year and got our acknowledgement email on the 7th of February 2013. All our papers are up date and nothing more was requested of us. We were told to do my police check and health checks on or after the 5th of May but I got them done around the 12th of April (It was just easier to do) Since then NOTHING- I have asked if they got my health checks back (as the was referred) and they said NO- I had declared PND and recurrent UTI but neither are ongoing nor have I been hospitalised for them. Has anyone experienced the same waiting time? Has anyone got their spouse visa in 2013? Have you got any tips? Thank you everyone and good luck with your application.

    Obtaining Travel History

    Hi everyone, A little conundrum here.... I am australian and my wife is Spanish having lived in the UK for 9 years. We are preparing a spouse visa for moving to Australia. Through this process, we have discovered that she will have to detail the past 10 years of her international travel... This would be fine, but she has travelled a lot, mostly between the UK and Spain, she cannot recall much of her travel. We have searched her email for past tickets (mine also), but are not sure if this constitutes all of her international travel. How can we obtain a complete list? Can the Home Office provide such information, or do we need to contact the equivalent in Spain? Thanks for your help, Tyson
  4. Hello, everyone! My husband and I got married last January. We're both Filipinos, but I'm a PR of Australia since 2009. He is still in the Philippines and we have already lodged his application on 27 February. We have completed all necessary documents and he was already asked to undertake a medical examination on 2 March. He did so on 7 March. We haven't heard from a case officer though. How long should we wait? I've heard of somebody being given a visa in 18 days from another country. Is it possible for those from the Philippines? I will appreciate your input on this. Thanks!:cute:
