Will a jail conviction for a violent offence or crime lead to a refusal of an Australian partner visa


In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q & A one participant asked Will a jail conviction lead to a refused Australian partner visa?

The exact question was:

Can I sponsor a Filipina lady on an Australian spouse visa if I have a conviction? What crimes and what jail terms would cause a visa application to be refused and to lose the visa application charge??
