    Hello, does anyone happen to know who to direct a UAE Police Certificate to? Is it simply the "Australian Department of Home Affairs"? Our contact in UAE has asked us and I'm not sure what to tell him.

    Hi everyone, thanks for this forum, it's so helpful. I am currently on the last stages (hopefully) of my 820 de facto application and have been asked to provide an Italian police clearance (two) as I lived there for a few years. Does anyone have any advice on how to actually get it? I have...

    I'm getting things prepared for my 309/100 partner visa application (soon). As I've spend years in each of the USA, Mexico, and Canada in the past ten years I'd like to the police checks for those done now rather than wating until asked and finding there's a delay. On the DHA website (I'm not...

    All, I have been reading up on the partner sponsored visa rules as quite a lot seems to have changed since I last looked into this (mostly price - yikes!). Although we originally looked into moving to Australia some 3 years ago, for various reasons we chose to pursue an alternative opportunity...

    Hey, When is the best time to get the medical for the de facto visa? Before or after submitting the application. Also, because the police checks are only valid for 12 months can you wait to complete them or do you have to submit them with the application? Thanks :)

    Hi, just a quick question regarding the police checks. I am applying for an 820/801 partner visa and have heard to wait applying for the AFP check because they're only valid for 12 months, however the visa check list states that "Evidence that everyone included in the visa application has...

    Hi, I am in the process of applying for my 820 partner visa with my Australian partner (I'm from the UK). I can't seem to decipher these forms in regards to police checks.

    Hello, I submitted my de facto partner visa last year around this time through an online application, and this week received a request for more information. This includes two police checks.

    Hello, I have been with my Aussie girlfriend for almost 2 years now. I spent a year in OZ on a WHV. She then came with me to Indo for a month and New Zealand for 8 months. We then came back to Florida where I am from so we could go to my sister's wedding. We have spent the past 5 months in...

    Hi all, I'm in the process of getting all my information to apply for my DeFacto visa. Is it true that we don't have to be living together for a year? We've been together for a year and a half now, and I'm in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa. There's nothing on the website that states we...
