Dad’s Visa Rejected Again by Immigration Officer

I submitted my dad’s Australian tourist visa late last month and we have been patiently waiting for any reply from the officer in Sydney during last month. If you have not seen the amount of documents that I have submitted, here it is:

Isn’t itΒ ridiculous consider that it is only for a simple short stay tourist visa?

What made me mad + crazy was that we got the refusal letter today from the officer who was processing our application. We got the first refusal letter when we applied from China through the Embassy in GuangZhou, then I decided to apply within Australia for a sponsored tourist visa, which means I am willing to pay the BLOODY $15,000 security bond for the period of my dad’s stay. But they still fucking refuse it again.

The reason made by the officer was simply that there was not enough evidence showing that my dad has incentive to leave Australia after the visit. Given the amount of documents I submitted, it is fucking ridiculous. I have supplied every single piece of possible documents that I can think of to support our application, but all I did was bloody useless.

I will have to talk to lawyers and fire a review tribunal as early as possible. If my dad’s visa can’t be granted before 1st of October, all time and money will be wasted because my mum is leaving Australia in mid October and there isn’t much point to have them separated again.

Why is it sooo fucking hard to get a simple tourist visa when your true intention is TRUELY for holiday and visit family members???

Mum Finally Got Her Visa

After long wait of a simple visa application for my mum’s visit to help us take care of the baby for the next three months, her finally got her visa. This visa has been delayed by more than a month.

The officer who processed our visa application simply ignored the fact that my son was expected to be born on 10th of July, and my mum’s visit is very important to new parents who have no experience of taking care of new born baby.

Anyway, she’s got the visa now and she will arrive in Melbourne on this Saturday at 11AM, and I can back to work without much to worry what’s happening at home.

Countries With The Number Of Free Visas To Other Countries

The following is the list of countries with the number of free visas they can have to other countries, I think it is a good thing to know. Enjoy.
