By anthonydHi all,
I have received an invite for 189 and want to apply for visa asap.
However, I just left Australia for a longer trip. My partner is still in Australia during this time, though she will visit me abroad during my trip.
If I apply for 189 while being outside of Australia, will my partner get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during my application?
I do not really need a bridging visa, since I hold e-visitor visa and can stay in AU up to 3 months at a time. I do travel often anyway, so I can easily just use my current visa until I get 189.
My partner, however, holds a visa that expires soon, so for her getting bridging visa is very important.
Ideally I want to apply while offshore, then come to Australia on my e-visitor visa to stay with my partner.
Will she get a bridging visa if she is in Australia during application, but I am not in the country?
By lewisant48Hey everybody. I've looked all through the forum archives to try and find an answer to my query so i didn't have to start a new thread but i've had no joy.
You get points for qualifications, but do the qualifications have to be relevant to the occupation? My girlfriend will be the primary applicant as veterinary nurse but she has a BA Degree in Textiles - will that degree get her further points or does she have to use the qualification attached to vet nursing? it's much lesser and will give less points.
By lifegoesonHi, Just have a query with regards to my eligibility to apply for the 189 Visa as a NZ citizen. I moved to Australia from NZ in Sept 2009 and worked up until August 2016. I fall within the threshold of the income category. I quit my job in 2016 and have been travelling every since and will only be back in Australia in June 2018. I still have a property in Aus and that is where my home is. As I have been away for over an year now , will I still be eligible to apply for PR under the 189 Visa? https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/189-new-zealand-stream Will my absence away from Aus on holiday deny me the approval for the visa? Thanking you in advance.
By PurplesparkleHi all,
We have today had our medicals uploaded and no further action needed :cool:. We have uploaded our police check certificates and submitted the additional information that was requested by our CO. So now I guess the wait begins for them to get back to us for more info or if we will get our visa granted :err:. Has anyone else submitted and are waiting to hear back? Here's hoping it isn't too longer wait to find out the outcome!
By strayadreamsHi everyone,
So, I can't help but notice that October grants are well below the usual grant rate? I know September was a massive month (one of the trackers reporting as many as 270 PR grants in the month) much more than the usual, but so far in October less than a handful. Does anyone know why this might be? Even if you don't include September its still way below the average. I could make some assumptions about why but, if anyone has more experience or has some information that would be great!
