I'm applying for the overseas spousal visa (300/309) and need 2 relationship witnesses. Can some tell me how this works as it's not clear on the immi website. Do two friend just write a statement on a bit of paper for example or is there a form?
Hi everyone, Has anyone out there experience of applying for a Spouse visa? The wife is Australian (only recently married but have been living in sin for 6 years in London) and after putting it off for a number of years I'm ready to take the plunge. I am confident the character and health requirements will be a formality and that we have extensive evidence of a long and committed relationship to each other. Basically I think that my application should be straight forward (if that is possible in the world of migration). So my questions are, has anyone any idea or experience as to how long the application process would possibly take? Would a migration agent be necessary too? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
Hi all I am currently in Australia on a One Year Working Holiday Visa that expires mid January. I am in a relationsip with an Australian girl and have been since Feb 2008. I am looking to move to Australia on a de facto visa and have been living with her since I came in Jan 2010 and so will apply in Jan 2011 once I have completed the 12mth requirement. I have read a few things on this site which has contradicted what I understood to be the case so I have a few questions! I was told by immigration to apply for my De facto Visa on the very last day of my current visa and should I do so I will be given a bridging visa that will entitle me to remain in Australia and also work. Is that so? I have also been told that it will speed up my application if I get both my police and medical checks done beforehand, has that been the case with others? A friend who went through this process in WA told me I needed to get a federal police check and not a national one but I keep reading I need a national one, is she mistaken? With regards the evidence required do I need to include originals of bank statement, invitations, photographs etc or would certified copies suffice? I think that is all the questions I have for now! Many thanks in advance for any help you may provide especially since I really need to get on this now lol! Kas
