Frustrated Aussie and Dane

Hi guys,

I found this website yesterday and so far have only spent 17 hours on it!
My boyfriend and I met in October 2012. We have been together 2 years now, and living together for a year and a half. We met in Asia, and lived / traveled for the majority of our relationship so far. We decided last year to move to Denmark, so that we could satisfy the requirements of the PV. As we were living in Asia, we didn't have utility bills, or joint bank accounts or rental agreements and we were frustrated to learn at the end of our trip that we couldn't satisfy even 1 broad category. So here we are in Europe. We have definitely encountered problems with our visa, and finding consistent information is very difficult. As I am sure everyone here has learnt.

We have recently decided to get married, so that we can speed up the process for the visa (don't need to prove the 12 months cohabitation). Although not as romantic as I had hoped for, still pretty darn happy about the idea!

I have been looking into this visa for over a year now, and still feel like we are in the research phase. Does anyone else feel like this?

Anyway, I have one question at this stage. With the police checks, I read somewhere that they expire after 12 months? Does this include the time they are sitting at Immi waiting to be processed? What I am asking is, if its all fine when we submit it, but expires during the processing time, will we have to get another?

Thanks for your time guys.

I felt like I was in the research phase right up until we submitted our application
And yes, the police clearances have a very real possibility of expiring while immigration is waiting to make a decision. Lots of people on the forum wait on doing the police and medical checks; they submit their applications and then when immigration request the checks they get them done.
We submitted the police clearances with our application anyway just in case they checked it before they expired, and they did.
So if you submit a complete, decision-ready application, it can save you some time if they look at it in time. (If they dont look at it in time, you'll need new ones.) However, you're certainly allowed to wait to do the checks if you're worried about them expiring. :]
There are several threads about this, such as http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...isa-820-a.html

If you are applying offshore you should check with the embassy on when they would like your medicals and police checks. Some embassy's explicitly say not to send them until you are asked.

Being married doesn't count for a great deal - apart from waiving the 12 month requirement. So make sure you still meet all four evidence categories comfortably. Can you still do this covering a substantial amount of time?

You may be better posting in the immigration section instead of the "new members" section - you will get more responses

And you will probably feel like your in the research stage even after you have applied


Best of luck!!

Look like your application goes to the Berlin processing office - and they say not to do medicals or police checks until the CO asks.
