    Hi Its Hussy,
    I am Australian citizen. I married in Australia in 2011. I had separation from my spouse in 2016. During separation I went back to Iran and married again. I came back to australia in 2017 and applied for divorse which i got in May 2018. Now I want to bring my wife from Iran to Australia. Is there a possibility i can do it. Plz share your expert opinion

    Going only by what you have said here, missing facts missing,
    and with all unspoken ifs, buts, maybes, excepts, and unlesses not allowed for,
    I suspect that your second marriage (the one in Iran) is not registerable in Australia,
    because you were still married to your first wife when you married the second.
    At law in Australia, you can only have one wife at a time.
    In which case, a spouse visa may not be in play.
