Facts: I have been in relationship with my Australian partner for 10 years. We lived together in the UK for 4 years. I had to relocate to another part of the UK in order to study and qualify into my chosen profession and we maintained regular contact/visits. Our families regard us as a couple and have done so for several years. He moved back to Australia 4 years ago and we planned that I would join him when I satisfied/obtained my professional qualifications/membership. In anticipation of my arrival in Oz my partner relocated his job to our chosen state and has refurbished the home he purchased. Several years ago, I spent 6 months with him in Oz and we can document many other holidays together and with our respective families. We VOIP and text very regularly. I qualified a few months ago and commenced my partner visa application - it is almost complete. I have delayed submission because I have been concerned about a parent's health and this has resulted in me been very torn about leaving the UK - something I have noted others have experienced on these boards. However, I really miss my partner and wish to join him and fulfil our plans together. Main point - I am concerned/have doubts regarding the granting of the Visa because of the length of time we have spent living apart & the delay in submitting my application even though we have been in a relationship for 10 years. I am now wondering whether a skilled migration Visa maybe more appropriate. As an aside - if the temp partner visa is granted - can I come back to the UK to visit my parents prior to the PR visa being granted? Can anyone comment?
Hi, Could someone outline very briefly the process I'll need to go through to submit my partner visa application in London? Do I have to make an appointment? Can I get them to make certified copies of the documents they require or should I do this in advance? If so where?!! Do the passport photos need to Australian-style ones (bigger head) or will standard UK ones suffice? Apologies if some of this is covered in the application forms themselves, the Partner Migration booklet and various other documents - I'm getting a little confused! Any answers and advice would be very welcome! Greg
Does anyone out there know: How long on avg for the partner / spouse visa to be processed How strict they are that the relationship was constantly continuous (ie with no breaks in between) And if it makes any difference if you are inside/outside Australia when applying?? Massive thanks! xx
