Hi,

I am a New Zealander living in Australia. My partner is from Vietnam and is currently living there. We are wanting to apply for a 461 Visa.

We met when she came over to study in Australia and were together here for 8 months and lived together for 3 of them (we didn't share a lease but had a housemate who we paid).

We realise living together for 3 months doesn't meet the de facto relationship criteria so we plan on getting married in Vietnam to overcome the time requirements.

Proof of our relationship includes emails, facebook chat, photos, a joint account (that doesn't get used often) and times where I sent her money.

Is this enough proof to prove we are in a lasting and genuine relationship?

Thank you for your help.

I can be enough. You evidence needs to be drawn together with a detailed submission addressing the relevant regulations. Note that the case officers in HCMC can be unreasonable. At least that is my experience of them this year. You may want to seek expert advice before lodging.
