Hi, my husband and I (along with our 17month old daughter) are wanting to move to australia (realistically not until the end of 2021 with everything going on) I am australian but have been in the UK for 9 years and ready to go home! My question is has anyone recently applied for the offshore 309 partnership visa from the UK and if so how long did it take? (I read it is up to 2 years! ) or has anyone moved to australia and then applied for a partnership visa for their spouse once they arrived in oz and if so what were these timescales? (My understanding is they can't work for 3 months) obviously trying to start all my research now as so much stuff to consider/research so I will no doubt be posting on here quite a fair bit! Many thanks
Raymo posted a topic in Family / Partner VisasHi guys. been searching in vain for clear info on this question. OK: Wife was granted a 309 visa (I'm her Aussie sponsor). We arrived in Australia in time for the "must enter Australia before..." requirement and spent two weeks together here. We have both have returned O/S to pack, sell things etc before our permanent arrival in Oz. I will be returning in January 2018. However, my wife must stay another 4 months due to work commitments. The question is: will this 4 months apart jeopardise her chances of getting permanent residency, or is this time short enough so as to be insignificant? Been hearing conflicting opinions. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
Hello, Thank you in advance to anyone who can help us with our queries.. My partner and I are currently in the process of completing our forms for a Partner Migration visa, I currently hold permanent residency however I have been back and forth from Aus for the past 4 years as I came back to the UK for university as I was not entitled to any H.E.L.P. support with tuition fees down under... ( In that time I have been back on 3-4 month holidays etc, however two years ago I met my partner (who now wants to emigrate) and ended up living with him in the UK, currently still living together and have been for 15 months. We have been to aus in this time but we are just wondering if I satisfy the requirement of being ' usually resident in Australia ' as I have been out of the country on and off. My goals have always been to move back to Australia after university, just being a normal human being I met someone who after 2 years now wants to do make this move back with me. My entire family lives in Perth so we have a strong foundation for moving out there. I just hope that I am still entitled to my permanent residency status. I have checked VEVO on the immi website and I know I have no restrictions on my visa, my PR was granted in January 2012. I hope someone can help us, this is the only niggle we have regarding the application!! Thanks again, Lauren and Paul
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi, has anybody else handed their 309 visa application into the New Zealand office in Auckland? Everybody's appears to be London or Australia so a lot of the discussions on here don't really apply to us.
