Subclass 309 and 100 Sponsor Requirements

Recommended Posts

Guest nicandjon

Hi, I'd be very grateful if anyone had some idea of what amount of savings the sponsor of the partner visa is expected to show.

 

I am an Australian citizen and my partner is a UK citizen. We lodged our application for Partner visa on 2nd November. Our CO has come back to us requesting proof we have enough savings/assets to support the applicant for the first 2 years in Aus. We have some savings but I cant see anywhere what amount would be considered acceptable.

 

As we've been married for 3 years and have a 2 yr old child we may be eligible for the permenent visa (100) without having to first be on the temp visa (309) but I need to show I can support him for 2 yrs.

 

If anyone else has gone through this or has any info it would be really helpful!

Hi, My wife was the Australian and I was the applicant, we showed our availability to work and what savings we had, ( it was not a lot). The main idea is that the applicant cannot claim from centerlink for the first two years in Australia. We also showed that we could live with relatives to save money if needed.

Hi Colin, thanks for your reply. To show your availability to work and stay with relatives did you need a stat dec for that or just your word was ok?

I had a stat dec for the stay with relatives from the wife's brother.

 

The availability for work we enclosed a letter saying how much cash we had and that we were applying for work and expected to be employed as soon as possible, of course a job offer would be good but that is hard to get, lol
