    I am a dual national of Pakistan and Australia.I got married in 2011 in Pakistan and my wife came to Australia. Unfortunately, our marriage did not last and I got a divorce November last year. I want to marry again in Pakistan and bring my new wife to Australia.

    Will there be any issues under Immigration Law?

    Hi Muhammad,

    You may not be eligible to be a sponsor for your partner, if you sponsored another person for migration to Australia on a Partner or a Prospective Marriage visa in the last 5 years.

    Thank you Sophea for you reply. Again thanks, if you can guide me.

    Actually, I got the visa 176 (skilled-sponsored )in 2014. My sponsor was my ex-wife's aunt. I was the main applicant.

    Am I eligible to sponsor my new wife?

    Regards

    Who was your wife's sponsor? If you didn't sponsor her and you have Australian permanent residency or citizenship then I don't think it would be an issue. Perhaps an immigration expert could confirm this?

    Thanks Sophea for your reply.

    My ex-wife's aunt, who is an Australian citizen, sponsored both of us.

    One more question, please!

    If I can sponsor my new wife, would it be ok if I apply for her Prospective marriage visa rather than partner visa?

    Your answer is warmly appreciated.
