    Onshore Partner Visa -one way ticket

    Hey, well we have an agent at go Matilda who seems to think it's possible so guess we will have to chance our luck. But we've been told stronger cases than ours have been declined but weaker ones have been granted...

    Onshore Partner Visa -one way ticket

    We wouldn't be applying straight away, just live together for a couple of months then apply, but I see you point...I was planning on going over to new Zealand in that time too, would it be worth me having my flight booked before I go?

    Onshore Partner Visa -one way ticket

    Well I'd be a tourist of sorts I lived there for 3 years but didn't get to see much as I was working so would take the opportunity to do it now...couldn't apply for it offshore as we need the opportunity to live together and register our relationship etc...Could they really turn me around even though I won't be working and would technically be on a holiday

    Onshore Partner Visa -one way ticket

    Thanks Nemesis, would it be a mistake to mention to them then that I will be applying for a partner visa whilst I'm there? Which would mean I didn't not need a return ticket?
  5. Hi, just a couple of quick questions: I currently have a tourist visa for Australia that I got back in January and went on a 2 week holiday. Just double checking I'm ok to use this again tocome over for 3 months within the year it was issued...? Also when I do come over I'm going to be booking a one way ticket as I will be staying with my boyfriend who lives over there and then applying for an onshore partner visa. Will I be ok getting through customs with a one way ticket on a Tourist visa, do I need to provide bank statements etc proving I can support myself etc?? thanks

    Onshore Partner Visa HELP PLEASE!!

    Thanks Nemesis. So once I'm over on my tourist visa and we lodge the application do I have to wait for the 3 months on my tourist visa to run our before the bridging visa will kick in?

    Onshore Partner Visa HELP PLEASE!!

    I have been speaking to an agent at Go Matilda and they seem to think we would be able to lodge an application, so fingers crossed. Was just making sure there wasn't anything else I could do my end before I move over. Also is there any advice on the plane ticket? I've been told that booking a one way would be fine as long as I had enough in my bank account to buy a return, is this the case?

    Onshore Partner Visa HELP PLEASE!!

    When I left the country I was removed from the 457, as it was my boyfriend's and I was just o there as a partner. I still have a westpac account set up over there so will be able to create a joint one once I move and I'll be able to pay rent into his account etc. I understand this is a new relationship and it's hard to gather too much evidence, but he's unable to move to England for a long period of time, so me going over on a tourist visa is our only option at the moment....

    Onshore Partner Visa HELP PLEASE!!

    Hi Snifter, sorry see Collies response, they seemed to have summed it up better then I did

    Onshore Partner Visa HELP PLEASE!!

    Hi Collie, Yes that's spot on, sorry to everyone if it wasn't clear! My current boyfriend is an Australian citizen and has always lived in Australia. I have looked down the 457 route but unfortunately the only relevant occupation I've had is in recruitment and I have only had 3 years, not the required 5....
  12. Hi Everyone, Just looking for some advice on mine and my boyfriend's situation. I previously lived in Brisbane for 3 years 2012-2015 and during this time I met my now partner as we worked together for 2 years - we were very close friends but with other people, so nothing ever more than that. Since then I returned to the UK after leaving my partner that I'd moved over with - we were sponsored on his 457 visa. I returned back in February for a holiday to see friends etc but ended up spending the whole time with my now partner, who separated from his partner last year. We decided to just see what happened when I returned at the beginning of March, but within the week we decided it was definitely something we both wanted and discussed me moving over. I have already used my working holiday visa to get there back in 2012, whilst waiting for the 457 to be processed. He has just been over for 3 weeks to visit me, meet my family and spend some time travelling around together and I am looking at going over in September and applying for the Partner Visa onshore. I understand that we won't be able to prove a defacto relationship for over 12 months as we don't have the luxury of that time, with the tourist visa only being 3 months. So we will be going down the path of registering our relationship etc, but I just wondered if anyone else had been in the same boat and could offer any advice....??? There's no doubt in either of our minds that this is what we want, we have saved the money for the visa and the extra to go through an agent, but if anyone could help or let me know their own experiences that would be amazing - or even just letting me know what I can do in preparation before moving over. Thanks in advance : )
