Hi Everyone, Just looking for some advice on mine and my boyfriend's situation. I previously lived in Brisbane for 3 years 2012-2015 and during this time I met my now partner as we worked together for 2 years - we were very close friends but with other people, so nothing ever more than that. Since then I returned to the UK after leaving my partner that I'd moved over with - we were sponsored on his 457 visa. I returned back in February for a holiday to see friends etc but ended up spending the whole time with my now partner, who separated from his partner last year. We decided to just see what happened when I returned at the beginning of March, but within the week we decided it was definitely something we both wanted and discussed me moving over. I have already used my working holiday visa to get there back in 2012, whilst waiting for the 457 to be processed. He has just been over for 3 weeks to visit me, meet my family and spend some time travelling around together and I am looking at going over in September and applying for the Partner Visa onshore. I understand that we won't be able to prove a defacto relationship for over 12 months as we don't have the luxury of that time, with the tourist visa only being 3 months. So we will be going down the path of registering our relationship etc, but I just wondered if anyone else had been in the same boat and could offer any advice....??? There's no doubt in either of our minds that this is what we want, we have saved the money for the visa and the extra to go through an agent, but if anyone could help or let me know their own experiences that would be amazing - or even just letting me know what I can do in preparation before moving over. Thanks in advance : )
Hello, I am an Australian citizen. My partner is a UK citizen and wishes to apply for a partner visa to reside permanently in Australia. We have decided that the Onshore Temporary and Permanent Visa (Subclasses 820 and 801) is the most appropriate visa for our purposes. In reading our questions please keep in mind that 1) we believe that we satisfy the de facto relationship requirements and 2) my partner has successfully applied for an eVisitor visa which does not contain a 'No Further Stay' condition. 1. Will my partner have difficulty entering Australia on her visitor visa if she does not have a return flight to the UK? 2. Can my partner apply for an onshore partner visa during the period of her visitor visa? 3. If yes, will a bridging visa (with working rights) be granted on the submission of the application or at the expiration of the visitor visa? 4. Is there a recommended 'cooling off' period to create the impression that my partner has not entered Australia for the purposes of applying for permanent residency? E.g. Wait one month before submitting the application. Thank you very much in advance for any advice!
