Hi

Have not been on here for a while, but really need some help. My daughter who lives in the uk finishing her degree has fallen in love with an Aussie, has now decided that she want to move over when she finishes uni. Her boyfriend is a Australian citizen, they speak everyday and email each other, she was over for Xmas , he is going over to uk for 3 1/2 wks, and then she will be bk here in winter(oz winter) to hopefully start her 3 mth internship, which is another story cause we dont know what visa to use for that. Anyway by the time she comes bk to oz in July she would have been with her boyfriend for 1 year is this grounds for a defacto visa because he is willing to sponsor her as all they want to do is be together. We cannot sponsor her because we have only had our pr for 1 year and we also have a son still in the UK. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thank you

Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 35. One-Year Relationship Requirement

 

Is it possible for your daughters boyfriend to live/work over in the UK for a while? I know that my sister in law came over to the UK so she and my brother could live together to meet the requirements.


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

Hi, they need to live together for 12 months, get married or legally register their relationship before she can be sponsored for a partner visa.

 

Presumably she is under thirty? Then a working holiday visa would probably be the best way to get her into Australia for 12 months (which if she spent living with her boyfriend) could then be used to bridge onto a partner visa.
