Spouse visa application timing/location

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

Great forum. Very useful.

 

I have a question about timing of spouse visa 309 application.

 

I am an Australian citizen and living in UK. Met my wife after I left Australia about 7 years ago and she has UK citizenship so now that we are planning to move back to Australia in couple of years we need to apply for a spouse visa for her.

 

We have been married for four years now and have all the documentation ready to go but I have now been offered a transfer to Hong Kong for year or so to manage all our operations there. It's a great opportunity and would love to take it.

 

My question is regarding when and where should I apply for her spouse visa. Given its takes nearly 9-12 months, do we apply now and then move to Hong Kong in 3 months time or apply in Hong Kong? We would love to apply here given all our evidence is from UK but once we leave UK we won't have any UK address.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

You can apply from the UK then when you move to Hong Kong just use Form 929 to update DIBP with the new address
