Hiall. My British partner and I (Aussie) are currently living in Australia awaiting his 820 Defacto visa to be granted.
As I understand it once this is granted we have to apply for his permanent visa (801 if applying onshore) 2 years after the original application date for his 820.
My questions are:
1. Do we have to be Australia to apply for the permanent visa considering we applied onshore for the temporary visa or can we apply for his permanent visa (100) off shore in the UK.
2. Once his permanent visa is issued can we come and go in/out of Australia when we want or do we have to be living here?
Our plan once his 820 Temporary is issued is to apply for my UK Defacto/Partner visa and move back to the UK.
Look forward to your reply....thanks heaps everyone!!!
