I have moved to Adelaide in Oct '14 and I'm looking for a job in Mechanical Design - CAD area all over the Country. The hunt is ON..
While i look for a Job - I want to process my wife PR application. (we didn't apply together - As, I wasn't married while i got my PR in 2011- we got married in India in Jan 2013)
For Partner Visa : I understand that as Sponsor Obligation - I have give a undertaking for taking care of my wife while she is here. For this I have to provide the proof of employment and bank a/c statement at the Time of application.
Since, I haven't found a job yet. This process is getting postponed & as is getting Partner PR for our nationality has a 12 months timeline.
My plan is: Apply Partner Visa while I look for a Job - Once I secure bring her on a Tourist Visa. Hence time is not lost on Processing Partner Visa.
Also, I understand that while on tourist Visa - she will not be allowed to apply for PR onshore. So, DIAC suggested me to lodge the PR visa 1st and then apply tourist visa.
Is there a way for me to lodge the PR Visa in as is Condition? I can show the funds required to take care of her while in AUS.
Spoke to DIAC on telephone, They were not able to provide me with a solution - I asked since its 12 month long process
- Can I apply and then provide the employment details eventually?
- For funds I can show funds upto 12,000 AUD. is it ok?
But, they never answered my question at all & all the time said read the rules and follow as per that..
Because its already been 2 months and now its Dec recruitment's will slow down until mid Jan 2015. For sure looks like it will drag on for few months more.. :-(
Kindly advice... thank you in advance.
