  1. Thanks to all for your replies. I think I am on the right track, just wonder do I really need to do this as a stat dec (i.e. go and get it witnessed by a JP) or is that not necessary given all the info already supplied in the application and the seemingly minor request for more information I have received?
  2. After applying for the partner visa on 27th January 2022, we yesterday received a request for more information, with just one bullet point on the checklist as below: Evidence of your relationship with your de facto partner Please provide further evidence of your relationship from January 2022 to present, in order to show that you are in a continuing and ongoing relationship. Please refer to the information below on the types of evidence you can provide. Please ensure to provide multiple forms of evidence within the timeframe listed above, which addresses all four aspects of the relationship. I suppose this is good to not have more things requested but I am wondering what is sufficient to satisfy this request. I am planning to just write a statement (of course with evidence such as a new lease we just signed, photos with friends, financial statement) and have us both sign it. For any experts out there, please can you advise if that is likely to be enough? Thank you
  3. 2 years sounds over the top although as others have said it would depend where you are based. I am in city of Sydney and applied 31-May-2021, just did the test on 4-Feb-2022 and had application approved - now it's a just waiting game for the ceremony which they say "Generally, the citizenship ceremony will be scheduled within six months from the time your application is approved although waiting times can vary." Hope that may be useful in some way. Good luck!
  4. I have lived here since February 2015, so coming up 7 years. Before that I lived in the UK. As a sponsor for an 820 visa application, does anybody know if I would be requested to provide a UK police check? I have provided an Australian police check already.
  5. Apologies if I have overlooked but I tried to find on this forum a similar post before writing this. It's a fairly simple question but I've not been able to get a simple checklist for documents we need to attach for our visa application, and on the Immi account they still have what I have been told are old and out of date documents as 'suggested' (e.g. Form 40SP apparently). On the home affairs website (here: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/partner-onshore/temporary-820#HowTo) there is a list which I didnt find to be very useful, so I wonder has anybody compiled their own which they can easily share?
  6. Thank you once more paul, that makes me feel comfortable to go ahead with this application. All the best.
  7. Thank you @paulhand I really appreciate your response. To clear up what I meant by 'other sources' it was actually a warning message while filling in details within the IMMI account pages that alerted me to this possible problem, as shown in the attachment.
  8. My partner and I are considering applying for the 820 Partner Visa and have quite a specific question regarding my eligibility as a sponsor which we are seeking assistance to address. I myself am an immigrant, having been granted a partner visa from my previous relationship, which I applied for whilst living offshore in the UK. Key dates for my own visa are as follows: Application lodged 07-Apr-2014; Granted (temporary subclass 309) 06-Jan-2015; and Granted P.R. (subclass 100) on 07-November-2017. I have found some ambiguity between the home affairs website which states that an eligible sponsor “may not have applied for a partner visa within the last 5 years”, while other sources state that I may not be an eligible sponsor if I have been “granted” a partner visa within the past 5 years. I am seeking the best way to find clarity on this point. Additionally I got married to my ex in Sep-2017, and we separated in Dec-2019 (have docs signed by us both to verify), however getting divorced is a slow process which only was formally finalised as per the divorce certificate in August-2021. Is this likely to cause an issue for me? Thanks in advance for any information anybody may be able to provide.
