    Form 888 - Australian citizen in UK

    Hi, Does form 888 have to be completed plus a hand written statement which both then have to be certified?
  2. Hello everyone, I have come across some new information and would like advice please: 1. I have been advised that only the last 3 years evidence showing our continued relationship needs to be provided for a Partner Visa. We have been married for 17 years this July. Been together for 24 years in total. Does anyone know if this is accurate? 2. I have read today on someone's post on here that as a sponsor for a Partner Visa, apart from providing my UK passport details (I have a UK and Oz one) I would have to provide a UK citizenship certificate? I came to UK in 1981 with my parents (they were £10 poms when they went to Oz) so I have no idea if my parents had a visa for me to travel to the UK or how I got UK citizenship?? How would I find this information out?? I haven't spoken to my mum yet about our plans so I do not want to start asking direct questions until I have told her. I would appreciate any advice, Thank you.
  3. Yes that seems the case now.
  4. Hi, Thanks for your reply. I have just checked, can't speak to anyone at the London office, it just gives a number for Australia. No direct email address either.
  5. Hi, I'm just reading your message about your UK citizenship. I, as a sponsor for my husband for his partner visa, moved to the UK when I was 11 (born in Australia) with my parents but I have no idea if I have got documentation that I am a British citizen. I have both UK and Aussie passports, so will immigration need to see proof that I am a UK citizen?? I'm assuming I came over to UK on my parents passport back in 1981, but if I have to provide a UK citizenship certificate, where do I get one from?? This will be my husband's 2nd application for a Partner Visa but I didn't have to provide information before about my UK citizenship back then. First partner visa for my husband was granted in 2011. It was a paper application. Is this information part of the sponsor being approved first? Many thanks.
  6. Hi to you all, Does anyone have a UK contact number for the Australian Immigration Department? Or an email address please? Thank you. Xx

    Self storage

    Hello to you all, Has anyone used self storage in WA, South of Perth or Perth regions? If so, what sort of monthly fees have to be paid and can you choose long or short storage? We would be staying with family until found jobs so if our container was to arrive and we was still staying with family, we would have to find somewhere to store our belongings for a while. Many thanks. Xx

    How long have you been waiting for RRV?

    Does it have to be all, as in business, cultural etc, or can it just be personal ties?

    Thank you, I will look into that .
  11. Just a quick question, Im still reading a lot of information regarding the above visa and my question is this: What if the applicant/sponsor doesnt have or kept things like invitations, tickets to events etc......but you may have photos of being at a particular event, would the photos be sufficient evidence? The same for holidays, may have the photos or emails of the booking but not the tickets as most of them are etickets. What if you cant remember exactly dates of when you met, started living together etc.....we have been together a long time (24 years) and cant remember everything or have kept some things/dates etc that is required if we go down this visa route!!! Many thanks.
  12. Thank you so much.
  13. Thank you. I shall keep that in mind.
  14. Hi, He going to check if he has kept anything from our first home together, which we bought in 2001. If not, we do have photos of that house, both inside and out and some of our wedding photos were taken in the house and in the gardens.
  15. Hi all, sorry me again!! How many photos did anyone upload for a Partner Visa to show proof of holidays/weddings/special occasions/Christmas/Birthdays etc etc....in a continuing and genuine relationships/marriage? Is there a limit as to how many can be uploaded that the application would allow? Thanks so much. Xx

    Photos for Partner Visa?

    Thank you CEP. When you say a document with 3 columns, is that something you did yourself , so an explanation for each photo? This online application is so complex and confusing, im not very good at all with computers where things have to be put into files, uploaded etc....its a real test for me and i am stressed to the max at the moment. Can i also ask you does the sponsor form (from me) have to be printed off, hand written, scanned then uploaded to a file and submitted as a new application to sponser my husband? All i know is its done after the partner visa application has been submitted. Is this also the same for using form 888 for statements from friends or family or both? So sorry for all the questions! Xx

    Photos for Partner Visa?

    Anyone please??
  19. Hi all, Sorry about all the questions lately but i need to ask: I have 3 children : ages 29, 27 and 14. They are all Australian citizens by descent and live in the UK. My 14 year old has lived in Australia 2012-2104. On the partner visa application it says all children, whether migrating or not, will need to have health checks done etc..... but my eldest 2 are not moving with us to Australia, but the 14 year old is, as he is dependant on us, so what exactly do i need to do? Its very confusing!! Thanking you in advance Xx

    Family members for partner visa question

    I'm more concerned about what house prices in UK will be and what effect Brexit will have on selling homes, exchange rate etc.... He's telling his parents this week about our plans, so I'm expecting a lot of tension and emotional blackmail..... Xx

    Uk to Aus Visa Questions!!!

    Have a look online at crux migration or MCA. It gives examples and detailed information regarding what you are asking about. If you do not get much response on here then hopefully this will help. I have been posting messages but no replies from anyone regarding visa information, so feeling quite deflated at the moment. Not everyone can afford to pay for an agent on top of the cost of visas so it can get quite stressful. Good luck with your application and hopefully someone can post more information for you. Xx

    Moving your money

    Hi Sharpeys, Can you buy/reserve a plot of land and pay for it whilst still in the UK? We are not sure to build or buy established, but would also, like you, have the proceeds from the sale of our home in the UK to transfer. We are also with moneycorp (who allow free transfers if a poms in oz member). Best of luck. Xx
