I do firstly want to apologise if these questions have already been answered, but I couldn't find any specific answers on the internet anywhere.
So, I am currently dating someone from the UK, and I live in Australia.
We were thinking of applying for the 820 partner visa. Now, I have absolutely no idea or very shallow knowledge of what these visas entitle.
Now, me and my boyfriend are currently just dating, but are thinking of getting married next year. Do we have to be engaged for us to apply for the 820 visa or we get married then apply for the visa? And can we apply for it whilst he is here on his tourist visa?
Also, do I need to sponsor him, because I am an Australian born? Because I'm only a student at the moment, and will be a student for the next few years to come, so I don't have any proper income. I study full time.
is it possible for him to sponsor himself?
Thank you in advance!! Every answer is appreciated
