    Prospective marriage visa to 820 visa

    Thanks so much! I did some research yesterday and found your replies on http://www.australiaforum.com (guessing it's you because it was the same username ;-)... The checklist is really confusing with all these incorrect information; I would have been totally lost without the help of all the forums and discussions... Thanks again.. you are a star :-) xx

    Prospective marriage visa to 820 visa

    Thanks for all your help @CollegeGirl. Just another quick question; when you guys filled up the 47SP and 40SP forms online, you used the same ImmiAccount, right? Also, is it okay if I pay for the visa using my hubby's credit card? It says in the document checklist (for 820) that 'If your sponsor has paid the visa application charge for you then you must lodge your application by post or in person'.. totally confused after reading this! Also, do we need to provide health (Medicare) and travel insurance documents?

    Prospective marriage visa to 820 visa

    Thanks so much for your reply @CollegeGirl. I'm so happy to finally find somebody who's just been through the same process. I'm getting all the new evidence sorted slowly... adding my name to our utility accounts (Electricity, Telephone), opening joint bank accounts etc.. So hopefully there'll be enough evidence of life together when we apply in October. Our marriage celebrant informed us today that it'll be 4-5 weeks after the wedding date that we'll receive the proper official marriage certificate! We were hoping to apply just after our wedding, but I guess there's nothing much we can do without the official certificate. What about statements from friends and family? Did you reuse the old ones (from PMV) or had to provide new ones? Also, is it possible to apply online? Thanks xxx

    Prospective marriage visa to 820 visa

    Hi guys, I am in Oz now settling down to my new life in Queensland (entered Brisbane 25th July on PMV)! I had a quick question about the next visa application; Dave and I are planning to get married in October and applying for the next visa in November; however my UK PCC expires in September and I am unsure if I'll need another new one when applying for the changeover from PMV to partner visa. Also, do we need to send all the other documents once again or they are already there on my file with DIBP? Thanks xx
  5. Hi Natalie, Your situation seemed very similar to mine and since it was posted some time back, I am guessing you have already applied and obtained your partner visa (820/801). I am in Oz now settling down to my new life in Queensland (entered Brisbane 25th July on PMV)!I had a quick question about the next visa application; Dave and I are planning to get married in October and applying for the next visa in November; however my UK PCC expires in September and I am unsure if I'll need another new one when applying for the changeover from PMV to partner visa. Also, do we need to send all the other documents once again or they are already there on my file with DIBP? Thanks xxx

  7. Thanks @rheia and @CrossFit Mark... still can't believe it!! Flights booked for 26th July... exciting times ahead!!! The October grants have started and you'll be next... :-)
  8. Thanks @StevenLozza and @Ronansmyth! I still can't believe it and keep reading the email over and over again! My flights are booked for 26th July... So need to start packing now... :-)
  9. JUST RECEIVED THE 'APPLICATION APPROVED' EMAIL!!!! 8 months 1 day!!! WOWWWWWW!!! :wink:
  10. JUST RECEIVED OUR GRANT!!!!! 8months 1 day!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :jiggy:
  11. That's interesting; we have applied for PMV as well but our wedding date is in October 2014, so I guess this doesn't affect us.... But it'll be an useful piece of information for future PMV applicants.
  12. Hi @rheia and @CrossFit Mark, I emailed our CO (DP) yesterday and received an 'out of office' reply; he'll be back on 10th Oct (that'll be exactly 8 months for us)... So hopefully he'll grant us our visa once he is back from his short break! I have booked my flights as well; flying out on 26th July! :-) Just need the grant now.... Good luck everyone and keep us posted xx
  13. Thanks Owliswise :-) I am planning to move to Oz end of July; so I think the timing should be okay. Fingers crossed for both of us! :hug:
  14. Just an update from my side... We emailed our CO today requesting for an update (applied 9th Oct, so nearly 8 months) and received the 'out of office' reply :mad: Thankfully he's on holiday only for a week and will resume work on the 10th... that'll be the full 8 months for us! So hoping that our grant comes through once he is back from his short break :yes:
  15. Yes.. it's just for the contracts that I need a month after the visa grant; most of them need a months notice (BT, Vodafone, Elec/Gas, Water etc etc... list goes on). We have completed 7 months now and hopefully the grant will come through right at the 8th month mark.... :-) Good luck to you too xxx
