liudic posted a topic in Visa Chat[it is the Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100) i am wishing to apply for] Some information so you know where i am coming from: I am british and my gf is Australian. I lived in Australia for one year on a working holiday visa. Towards the end of my year in australia we were going to apply for the Onshore De Facto visa so I could stay in the country (and my job), but as time was running out and I was getting different answers every time i rang the immigration department about having a complete application, we decided it was safer to leave on the day my visa ran out and make our way to the UK to apply there. We have been travelling through Asia since then and now we are about to head back to the UK. The plan is to apply at the immigration office when we get back to the UK. We have all the required documents (statutory declarations etc) the only thing we won't have is police clearance from Spain (as I lived in Spain for over a year in the last five years so this is required) I have read through the application form and the document checklist but my question is.. Is it possible to apply as soon as I arrive in London and then give the police clearance documents once we have been to Spain to collect them? It could be a month or two later. We really want to get back to Australia asap, but don't want to risk applying and then being declined for something like one missing document. PS the reason we are going to Spain for the police clearance is that it is 400euros more expensive to organise a lawyer to obtain it on my behalf. I must go to Madrid to collect. Thank you anybody that can advise.
