8503 Waiver – Spouse Visa & Condition waived

September 13, 2021 - Unreported Cases

The applicant arrived in Australia on a visa which was subject to the ‘8503 No Further Stay condition’. The applicant met an Australian citizen, the sponsor, and they fell in love. They commenced a relationship and subsequently married. Unless this 8503 condition was waived, due to compelling and compassionate circumstances, the applicant would not have been able to make an onshore application for a partner visa in Australia.

Due to the sponsor’s impending post-operative care after his operation, he required assistance and support with his daily care. The sponsor’s health condition was worsening and it was submitted that the applicant would be able to provide him with nursing assistance and care.

Our submissions, based on medical grounds and the nature of the sponsor’s disabilities, were accepted.

The 8503 condition was waived and the partner visa was lodged.
