Regardless of where you come from, an Australian tourist visa can be hard to obtain and this is certainly true for some Thai citizens as they deemed to be high-risk travelers. Initially, the applicant – your Thai girlfriend, will need to complete a Tourist Stream Visa Form 1419 and then this will need to be submitted to the Australian Embassy in Bangkok in conjunction with some supporting documents. This can be quite a stressful time and all documentation must be correct so it is wise to use the services of a professional visa company.
It is common practice for the Australian authorities to the only issue a three-month Australian Tourist visa with a ‘No Further Stay Condition’ for your Thai girlfriend on her first visit. However, this may be very dependent on your Thai girlfriend’s circumstances and she could possibly be issued with a three, six, nine or twelve-month visa. It is important that the applicant proves that she is a genuine visitor to Australia, in other words, she is only going for a holiday and is traveling for the purpose of leisure only. Proof must also be given showing that the visa applicant has every intention of returning to Thailand once or before the visa has expired. Supply as much information as is possible as this will enhance your chances of the application being accepted – this includes proof of her financial position and that she has enough money to support herself whilst in Australia.
Although the application process can take as little as ten days, it is always advisable to allow a month. Any missing or incorrect documentation will delay the process and could lead to the application for an Australian Tourist Visa for your Thai girlfriend falling at the first hurdle.
