I have read through this whole thread and what know one has even pointed out to mexican is that even if he gets here the visa , she will not be allowed to work in australia at all, No tax ID no Job and can not work for 2 years till she gets her residency after 2 years, also the requirements for the visa is that he can provehe has the income to support her for 2 years and can cover all medical and other costs. also the application fee is $2000.00 dollars none refundable if refussed
Not true, Tourist visa she cant work or get medical benifits, Fiance visa she can work, spouse visa she can work, gets medical benefits but has be renewed every year and she can have a tax number
I was talking about the tourist visa , she can not work, that is why there is the work visa as for the fiance visa they changed the cost since I applied 5 years ago , I was stating the cost for an imagration service or attorney to help you make your application, which is the smart way to do it , this way it is filed 100 % correct. so it would be more now if you do it your self and Lodged the application outside Australia the fee is 1745.00 website quite -
The Visa Application Charge must accompany your application and is generally not refunded if the application is unsuccessful.
as for the fiance visa i have placed a link http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/partners/prospective/300/#c

How this Visa Works
On this page
Extending your stay
You must have a genuine intention to visit Australia as a tourist, for recreation or to visit your family and friends.
Family members, under 18 years of age, who are travelling to Australia and are included on your passport, can be included in your application. Other family members who have separate passports must lodge separate applications.
Extending your stay
If you are in Australia and want to extend your stay for tourism purposes, you must apply for a new visa at least two weeks before your current visa expires.
A Tourist visa may be granted if you:
have complied with the conditions of your previous visa
meet all the eligibility criteria for this visa
do not have a 'No further stay' condition on your visa.
You should note that a further visa, if granted, will cease any visa or ETA currently held and the entitlements attached to that visa or ETA.
If a decision has not been made on your application before your original visa expires, you will be able to remain lawfully in Australia until the application has been finalised.
If you are refused a further visa, you must leave Australia before the expiry of your authorised stay period.
See: Tourist (e676) Visa – Online Applications
If you are granted this visa, you can study for up to three months. If you want to study longer than three months you should apply for a student visa.
See: Student visa options
Student visa holders
If you hold or last held a Student visa, you can not extend your stay in Australia on a Tourist visa, for the purposes of:
commencing a CRICOS registered course
continuing or completing a CRICOS registered course in which you are enrolled. Working
You are not able to work in Australia. If you are coming to Australia to work, you should consider applying for a visa which allows you to work in Australia.
Volunteer work tourism schemes
In general terms, you may be able to work as a volunteer whilst on a Tourist visa if:
your main purpose in visiting Australia is tourism, and any voluntary work remains incidental to this
the work involved would not otherwise be undertaken, in return for wages, by an Australian resident
the work is genuinely voluntary and that no remuneration is received in return for the activities.
Note: It is acceptable, under the conditions of the Tourist visa, to receive meals and accommodation or reimbursement for out-of-pocket living expenses in return for voluntary work.
Please show me where under vister visa you can have these benefits , I have looked several times to find such information the imagration website http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/tourist/visa-options.htm
