    12 month rule ??? Waved ???

    Hi @Jona, I am a Registered Migration Agent with Fair Go Visa Consultants. If you are applying without being married or having your relationship registered (for a 820 or 309 Visa) you will need to provide 12 months of de facto evidence at the time that you apply (so you cannot lodge and then get 12 months of evidence from that point, it needs to be before). If you are married, it will waive this requirement. However, you will still need to show that you are in a genuine and continuing relationship. You cannot just apply with a marriage certificate. You will still need evidence that goes back sufficiently far to demonstrate your relationship and address all four of the relationship aspects - financial, social, nature of the household and nature of commitment. I hope this helps. info@fairgovisa.com.au https://fairgovisa.com.au/
  2. Hi @Yullt, I am a Registered Migration Agent with Fair Go Visa Consultants. This will depend on the type of visa you are applying for. Are you applying for a 300 Prospective Marriage or a 820 Partner Visa? The evidence required will need to adequately address each of the four pillars of the relationship (if it is an 820 / 309 Partner Visa). To do this properly you will also need Form 888s from family and friends and strong relationship statements from yourself and your partner - preferably as statutory declarations. In terms of the above evidence, it is hard to say without seeing it all. For example if you have photos that are not captioned and don't show a timeline, this will not be very helpful. Similarly, if you have a joint bank account but it was started a month ago and does not have many transactions over a long period - it will also not be given much weight.

    Becoming a business sponsor.

    Hi @DrNemo, I am a Registered Migration Agent. When business apply, they often do this at the same time that they lodge a nomination application and visa application to sponsor someone in particular. For this reason, the processing times are generally grouped with the visa application / nomination times. If this is a Standard Business Sponsorship application for things like future 482 Visa holders - you could probably expect about 1 to 2 months for the application to be processed. Do you have someone in mind that you want to sponsor or are you just preparing for the eventuality within a few years?

    That is fair enough. The Department of Home Affairs is constantly shifting their processing priorities so cases can take longer to process without it meaning anything sinister. Averages are only averages and people fall outside of those estimates. Migration Agent Registration Number: 1910034 info@fairgovisa.com.au

    Which is why I said "usually". Average processing times are just that - averages. But where someone has lodged a straight forward application that meets all the requirements, they will generally fall into the average processing times - or beat them.

    Hi Nick, I am a Registered Migration Agent with Fair Go Visa Consultants. The average wait times are 5 to 6 months. They are usually pretty similar to the wait times for the Visa Application themselves as they are usually granted pretty quickly, one after the other. However, these are averages only and the processing time will depend on your individual circumstances. Migration Agent Registration Number: 1910034 info@fairgovisa.com.au
