Newbie and maybe someone can help me

Hi guys, i’m a filipino citizen and living in Norway for a year now. I met someone amazing through online and since
end of November 2017 we just can’t get enough of each other and we have been constantly talking online or on facetime despite of our 8.5 time difference. He is a british citizen who just applied for PR in Australia and we both decided to meet in UK this July and if we still madly in love with each other after our first meet up for this summer then he will fly back to Australia and i’ll be back here in Norway. We both plan to meet again in Philippines on January 2019. That’s about a year of our constant communication, the thing is we both want to be each other and i’m willing to give up my visa here in Norway to be with him but i don’t want to get married yet but i i wanna be with him because the distance is a lot of work for us and i am too needy of his time Do we qualify for de facto visa on january 2019? Or do i have to apply for tourist visa end of this year so I can go home with him after January and after my tourist visa ended i’ll
go back to Philippines and apply for de facto? is that how it is??? I just really wanna be with the person i love the most and we both want it but we are not in a rush to get married just for the sake of visa, we just wanna be together but also i don’t want to keep going as a tourist because this will not make me get a stable job at home if i keep traveling every after 90 days.

I hope any Filipino who had same experience as me can comment below and let me know what is best for me and my boyfriend to cut the distance because 8, 524 miles away is really really hard for both of us.

Good because marrying won't get you a partner visa anyway.

Things to be aware of: he can't sponsor you until he's Aussie PR and then depending on how he got it, there could be time limitations before he can sponsor as well as needing to prove he's normally a resident of Australia.

Second, if you haven't met in person yet, none of this time counts to immigration and won't count towards your de facto requirements anyway.

Thanks. I certainly not want to marry immediately just to be with him but I only posted to ask about how we can be together without going back and forth to each other’s country. Well, we already both have flights for London so certainly we stay at least for a month or less then will be together again in Philippines for another month in January. Just wondering if how long we should be together to get a partner visa, as i need to know before i drop my university offer here in Norway this June and thinking instead to visit australia and apply for student visa.


Thanks you’ve been helpful !

This should answer your question on how long you need to be together. It really depends on whether your relationship can be considered de facto in immigration's eyes and if it meets the 12 months de facto requirement. There's always the option to register the relationship if that's available in your case and that waives the 12 months, but does not waive the relationship evidence requirements so you still need to prove de facto. Another option for engaged couples is the PMV 300 which does not require de facto evidence but of course it's for couples who are already engaged, not getting engaged just for the visa.

Great advice skyblue! I can understand why the Govt would not like the type of relationship fitpetitebabe describes. Although it sounds like fun the lack of committment would be a serious impediment. I am in a more normal situation where I have met someone from Thailand in Australia and had a brief but intense relationship falling in love, living at my house in Canberra and definitely want to get married.
So a fiance partner visa is definitely the way to go. I'll be there April 25th and again in June. But it sounds like 12 months until this can happen

Why do you say 12 months? Are you referring to wait times after application? Because if you plan on going the 300 route, there is no 12 month relationship requirement.

The waiting time to get a 300 visa is 12 months I believe due to demand and processing times. It's not policy but another post suggests I can work around this with a 12 month Visitor Visa subclass 600. I'll research that of course! This forum has been wonderful

75 per cent of subclass 300 applications are processed in under 11 months, and they have seem to average 9 months from what I have seen, with some a lot faster.
Ours was 8 months from application to being told to leave Australia for the decision.
