How to get my Thai Girlfriend Back to Australia

If you have a Thai girlfriend, partner or wife, and you’re thinking about taking her back to Australia to live with you, you may be wondering how to do it;  just what is the process involved, and is it easy, or expensive to do? You might be wondering how you can get her back to Australia as quickly as possible, and whether she will like leaving her family and friends in Thailand behind for a new life in Australia with you. Is it fair to take her out of the only environments she knows (yet perhaps a situation where she is immersed in hardship and poverty) and expose her in a culture that is totally different. Will she be able to integrate? Will she make new friends? Will she get homesick?

It’s normal to have such questions when embarking on a relationship with someone from a different culture, and contemplating taking her to a different country. Of course you want her to come home with you, to visit your friends and family. And it’s natural to want to spend as much time with her as you can. But your schedule might not afford you frequent holidays, or months that you can spend in Thailand. In this case, then, it seems obvious that your first choice is going to be getting a visa for her and bringing her back to Australia, as quickly as possible. But getting a visa for your Thai girlfriend might not be a straight forward, quick, process.

Visas for Thai Nationals

Because she is Thai, and therefore considered to come from a ‘high-risk’ country by the Department of Immigration & Citizenship (DIAC), the visa process is a somewhat stringent routine. She will be required to fill out documents and submit thorough paperwork and ‘evidence’ that she is a genuine visitor and that you are willing and more importantly, able, to support her. Depending on which type of visa she applies for, she will be subjected to various health screenings and interviews, there will be translations, and visits to the local Amphur office. There may be further complications, such as she has a child from a previous relationship, or is still married. She might be working in the bar industry, or, has no job to speak of.

The Visa Process

Getting a visa is not just about filling out a form, and telling DIAC that you love her and want to marry her. It’s simply not enough. In fact, you can tell DIAC just about anything that you think they will want to hear, but it won’t get you a visa. Getting a visa is a process of building up your case. Proving to DIAC, rather than just telling the decision maker what your intentions are, and evidencing everything with thorough proof and documentation.

Should I marry my Thai girlfriend to get her an Australian visa?

This question come up again and again. Our answer is always, NO.

If you Thai girlfriend doesn’t qualify for a tourist visa, then being your wife will not automatically qualify her for a partner or spouse visa.

Should I deposit money in her back account to show she has savings?

Again NO. Don’t put money into her account just to try and prove that she has savings, and can support her self in Australia. If she has no job how can she explain why she has several thousand Baht in her account, unless it was gained by untoward means? She has to demonstrate that she has strong enough ties at home, and a strong incentive NOT to work whilst visiting Australia, and putting money into her bank account in Thailand shows the exact opposite.
