How to Write a Visa Invitation Letter for Australia Tourist (Subclass 600) Visa (Spouse or Partner)
A long distance love relationship can be quite stressful on its own without the dilema of not knowing how the love of your life will come over to Australia to visit and eventually stay. When it comes to inviting a spouse or partner to visit you in Australia, there are many factors that must be considered.
First you must realize that the visa officer still needs to be convinced that your special friend will return to his or her country of residence until a different visa is obtained. For those whose guest is not yet a spouse this is also very important.
Regardless of who your guest is, the format of the invitation letter is basically the same. You will only need to provide adequate documentation to show that your guest will return to their country of residence once the time of thier visit has expired. So regardless of who the guest is, what is most important is to ensure that all the required information are in the letter. There is no specific method or style once all the required information is visible in the letter. The Australian Consulate or Embassy requires this letter. Please visit the relevant Australian High Commission website for the most current information
Your letter must include the following information about the person being invited:
* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* The person’s address and telephone number.
* Your relationship to the person being invited.
* The purpose of the trip.
* How long the person you are inviting intends to stay in Australia.
* Details on accommodation and living expenses.

Your letter must also include the following information about the person writing the letter:
* Complete name.
* Date of birth.
* Address and telephone number in Australia.
* Occupation in Australia.
* Your status in Australia
* A photocopy of documents proving your status in Australia and financial Status.

Do not forget to send a scanned copy of your passport. You may need to ensure that this document and all other documents you would be submitting are certified true copies. This can usually be done by a notary.
Also note that even if the guest is your spouse and you are not a citizen, the letter will follow the same format and all you need to change are the specifics of the relationship. Partners and spouses are particularly challenging to invites as guests by citizens of Australia because it is difficult to show that your spouse will leave you to return to their country of residence.
