Hi there. My Australian citizen girlfriend and I want to apply for the Defacto partnership Visa and was hoping you guys could help me with a few questions. 1. We are currently in New Zealand and where planing on going to Aus to apply for the visa,I was going to go initially on a tourist visa. Is this a bad idea? how long are the prosessing times for applying on and offshore? heard it is quicker if you apply from ofshore. 2. would I be able to work when the bridging visa is granted? 3.Do you think it's best to use a migration agent? Am still a bit confused about the whole process so it would be great if anyone has advice on the best way to go about getting all this done as quickly and painlessly as possible! thanks alot.
Hey all, Just a quick question you folks may be able to help us with to put our minds at ease! :smile: Our offshore defacto visa has been lodged, case officer assigned and they have got back to us requesting further information which has been provided. Also been told to do the medical after a couple of months. The question I have is, at which point would a visa be rejected due to character issues if they have already obviously looked at the application and asked us to go for a medical. Would it be right at the start of the process or further down the line ? Thanks!
Hi All, This is my first post and have spent a fait bit of time trying to find someone in a similar situation but had no success. I guess everyone is in a unique situation. I (pom) want to go over on the 309 Visa with my Aussie girlfriend who I have been with for two years now. However we didn't move in together until 6 months ago. She bought a place and I moved in 10/2012. I am just a little confused to whether or not this disqualifies me from being able to get the 309 partner visa? I up until that point of moving in with her had been technically living with my parents, however spent nearly all my time at my partners rented accommodation. The evidence I can provide is we have been away together on holidays through the two year stat decs from 5 people in Australia (her mum, dad, sister and two friends) A joint bank account with savings going in from both of us for the last 13months Photos, letters and emails of us being together Last 6 months of bills being delivered to the same address. We both pay different house bills so no joint names. (i took car insurance, internet, tv) She took (gas, electric) I have proof in my own bank statements I sent money towards mortgage for the last 6 or 7 months So I have all form and proofs printed and ready to go, however just wanted to make this last minute plea in case anyoen had been rejected? I am under 26 so I could apply for the WHV and then apply for the defacto when I am in Australia. My only concern for this is a) employment restrictions or disadvantages with WHV visa. b) We are planning to move permanently so I would effective be lying by saying I am just taking the WHV visa then going defacto (has anybody else done this?) .. Any help and replies would be greatly appreciated Thanks you so much, Jay
Hi All I'm hoping that my boyfriend and I will be able to qualify for the defacto/partner visa. We've been in a relationship since Jan 2009 and living together (joint lease) since Feb 2009. This means that we satisfy the 12month living togther requirement however, I am moving back to Sydney in June this year. My boyfriend will not be following until 2011, due to financial circumstances. Even though we plan to visit one another as much as we can will our eligibility for the partner visa be affected by our temporary separation? Any advice or similar experiences would be fantastic!! Thanks in advance (& fingers crossed for some good news!)
