Spouse Visa Applied For - What's next?

    Recommended Posts

    Guest stayte

    Hi all

     

    Not posted anything on the site for a while but thought now would be a good time to get back involved.

     

    Compared to some of you out there - guess we have (hopefully) a relatively straight forward way into Australia as I have an Australian passport and have just sent off the Spouse's visa application for my wife. Just wondered what happens from here?

     

    We've been married for over 5 years and have a 3 year old daughter (we're applying seperately for a passport for her) so hopefully the application should be a simple process - or will it?

     

    Will we be contacted with confirmation of receipt? We've included the police check. At what point do they confirm if all is in order. Is it automatic that they ask for a medical? If so when will they request this be organised and what will be involved (my Caroline hates needles!).

     

    Any info would be much appreciated.

     

    Cheers

    Good job on getting the application in- hardest part is over! (Or so they say...)

    :biggrin:

     

    You sound like you'll have no worries getting your wife's visa and I'd be very surprised if they didn't issue her with PR straight away. You'll be on easy street, don't stress!

     

    As for what happens now, yep they'll confirm reciept of your application (usually by email) and also once payment is recieved. They'll then get in touch if and when they want to speak with your wife (they may want to phone interview her, they may not, we don't actually know if there is method to their madness when it comes to who is interviewded) and once they review your initial application, they'll ask for meds.

     

    If you want to, go book meds in now and send them in straight away, they simply match up the meds with the visa application and refer to them when it is needed. There is usually a bit of a wait (a week or two) to be able to book in for meds so you may aswell book it now and even if your booked date comes up before they request meds, it'll be fine, loads of people front load meds with spouse apps.

     

    As for the meds, its the usual big check-up stuff. Yes she'll have to give blood and she'll have to have x-rays too. But other than that they just check your stats, blood pressure, reflexes, breathing, eyes & ears etc. Pretty non-invasive stuff.

     

    Good luck with it all!

        Hi All,
        I am currently a resident of the UK and have been going out with my girlfriend, who is from New Zealand for 6 months now. Her sponsorship in the UK will run out in October of next year and we're looking for a move to Brisbane, Australia. We've looked into partner Visas but we're not sure if she's eligible as a sponsor as she hasn't been living in Australia amongst other things. Can you help at all? Any advice would be much appreciated.
        Thank you
        Sam

        Hi,

        I have a problem here.
        I am currently in the EOI queue with 65 points.
        Recently, I got 79+ in PTE and waiting to update it in EOI , so my score will turn to 75.
        But, my wife is pregnant now.
        I have questions like,
        1. Is this the right time to update EOI, because I might get invite soon
        2. If I proceed, file VISA, my wife can't produce her health certificate, so how long can I hold the VISA process ?
        3. Or should I wait for 2-3 months, update my EOI and proceed for VISA as I might hold the VISA process for a shorter period.

        Experts plz guide?

        I have searched the internet for an answer and can't find one. My husband and i need a USA police check (FBI check). We have different surnames. Should we send these separately in different envelopes or can we send them together? This seems like such a trivial question but I'm really confused by this. I'm guessing it should be sent in separate envelopes?
         
        Kind regards.
