    Hi Mark. What is the difference of a visa processing officer and a case officer?

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for getting back to me, it does help, especially to hear that you know of some cases that were successful without much evidence or the 12 month requirement. I think we’re going to try anyway, just include additional evidence such as; statements from our joint savings account (also addressed to us as a couple), get a statement from his parents to confirm that we’ve been living together continuously for the 10 months, a history timeline of our relationship..We’re thinking of including some of the same evidence that we’ve put together in our 820 application, hopefully they’ll realise that we’re a real couple.

    It’s weird though how it varied from state to state, like NSW only require a month of living together from what I’ve been told.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Mark,

    I hope you're well. I really need some advice on registering a relationship in Victoria, here's my situation;
    I'm from the UK +have an Aussie partner, we met in 2011,in July 2012 I came out here for a month to be with him, we have evidence of the time we were apart. I came back to Melbourne on Dec 29th 2012 on a WHV -since then we've been living together in his parents house until we have enough money together to move out.
    How likely do you think it would be for us to register our relationship after 10 months of living together? We need this because as we're living with his parents, we haven't got joint bills +so the registration would give us that extra piece of evidence. We have the money for it but do you think it's worth trying? I got talking to a guy who was in the same situation +they got theirs registered in Victoria after 10 months of living together. Do you know of any applications that haven't t been successful with it? Any advice would be appreciated

    Hi Mark
    When my fiancee received the grant letter she rang the embassy to enquire when she needed to be in Australia by and they replied March 2014. I have just received a copy of the grant letter by snail mail (ie post office). Which clearly indicates that initial arrival in Australia should have been 7 August 2013. I think some miscommunication has occurred with my fiancée and the embassy over the "last date to arrive 04 April 2014 " which is the line above the initial entry.
    It appears she missed the initial entry date which means it probably has been cancelled by now, other than the obvious of contact the embassy/immigration, is there anything we can do. I emotionally/financially can't do this again

    Hi Mark, in preparing to leave on ETA to visit my fiancé I am printing the ETA Letter as well as my PMV Acknowledgement Letter, just in case I may need it for proof of Fiance sponsor relationship One question - I noticed in the PMV Acknowledment letter states: "Applicants are advised not to make commitments for travel to Australia or to dispose of property until advice is received in writing that the application for a visa has been approved"-
    so I know you've said ETA visits and I have an ETA granted and plan to leave soon, what is your input about that line above means? especially the 'make no travel commitments to Australia? I will of course be calling My AU Embassy where My PMV is processing to tell them I have an ETA & PLAN to visit my fiancé I will be sending a 1022 for change of circumstance/address for next 3 months & confirm they have my email communicating..I will give flight info once
    I have it anything else I need to know?
    Thank You Mark!

    Hi Mark, just a note of thanks for all the help you have afforded me (and other forum members) -- I received my 820 grant today. Thank you so so much! Your presence on this forum is really invaluable. Feel free to ask me anything about the grant -- I will not take any comments personally, lol, as other members have had the tendency to.

    Hi Mark, I jsaw this on Can. AU Embassy section ETA:
    "If you are granted an ETA, any other visa that you hold could be affected" Initially I planned end of August visit on ETA waiting PMV will I damage our PMV in sight of line above? Or not visit at all. If within 1st 3 mos. visit,we are not granted we wish more time together as I re-enter from NZ - we've been apart 16 mos. arranging PMV doc's. Also at end of a 1st 3 mos.ETA it would end Nov. & x-mas new years coming. We wish to be together for that as well. Additionally ,f we lodged offshore early May & had CO requests for a couple missing doc's bringing us to end of June that all required docs were submitted does this mean our timeline begins end of june for processing? or early May as when receivedl? Not knowing affect calculating ETA.Wait another 1/1/2 mos before visiting to ensure grant time occurs inside 1st ETA? Or not go at all considering the line above I found.
    Thank You Mark
