My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
I cannot comment on their laws. In Australia if you owe money they cannot detain you unless they have a court order.
If your fiancé owed the money and they have some order in Russia then this is correct she would not be allowed to travel.
This though to me sounds a little like a scam and you are asked to pay for this debt so she can leave the country. If this is the case do not pay anything.
She is not able to come here without a visa being granted.
If there is no visa granted then she cannot board the plane as there is a law world wide that airlines will not allow travellers to board if they do not hold the correct visa.
If they do then they are fined for bringing an illegal person to the country.
So if you are ebbing given a story and asked to pay over money to pay a debt, it is a scam and you should report it to scam watch.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
