Congrats on your grant mate! Do you know by any chance if your case officer or anyone from the department has contacted you, your partner or anyone who wrote the 888 form for you, by email or phone before they gave you the grant (apart from the additional document request)?
Thank you very much. In my case, my case officer only emailed me and my partner for requesting for more additional document.

A PMV does not need joint finances, nor a living together requirement.

It is the route we took.
thanks and actually I was aware of that as I sponsored my ex wife on a PMV in 2014 . . But the applicant from Thailand used the partner visa method and I wondered how
able to satisfy the joint finances test as presumably sponsor and partner were not in
same country . I assume the case officer tries to be reasonable and looks at the
circumstances and realises people can not do the IMPOSSIBLE .

Perhaps start your own thread rather than jumping on one that has nothing to do with either of your 2 options?

Domestic relationship cer

Hi guys,

I'm not sure if I need to do this certificate before applying for 820 and been confused about Visa Verification as one of requirements. Anyone here knows about this?

:confused: thanks

actually my questions had everything to do with what I asked as applicant from Thailand about as he or she
applied for a partner visa. It would be a waste of time to start another thread even if I knew how to and little chance the Thai applicant would see it !

Being an 820 visa, the sponsor and applicant would normally be in the same country, and might be expected to be able to prove more than an offshore visa such as 309 or 300 might.

thanks for comment and i guess you are mainly talking about a situation where an
aussie was working and living abroad for a while and married a person in country
in which that person was living . might still be a little tricky to satisfy the joint finances
test as the aussie probably has assets in OZ which would not be in joint names .
Difficult perhaps to convert a bank account from his name to a joint account to include foreign partner's name and I know ING where I have savings said it could not be done. Hopefully the Immigration official uses a little common sense in this
matter as nobody can do the impossible . thanks again

sorry as I got it completely wrong as of course the 820 visa is applied for ONSHORE in OZ and easier to arrange joint accounts maybe before submitting application. For 309 visa it is less easy as you say but possible to have joint accounts where sponsor living to include his or her partner ( visa applicant ) partner could be living with applicant
most of time using visitor visas to UK as in my case . I have reasons not to use the
PMV route because of what happened in 2015 !

The 820, being an onshore visa, is where they are both in Australia, with the applicant on a visitor, student, working holiday visa etc. Having been living together in Australia often for some time. Normally getting married in Australia too.
Joint bank accounts can be common, we did that with NAB, even before getting married.

thanks a lot and you will now have seen my last message explaining that I got
mixed up . I have thought about the visitor visa for OZ route and then do onshore
partner visa application but can be tricky for various reasons and harder now
wth the upcoming partner assessment rule ( they always look for ways to make
things harder and to raise more revenue- smile ) . you mention getting married in OZ
when on a visitor visa but surely that would infringe the conditions of the visa and
certainly does here in UK ? might be different in OZ and no need for a visitor marriage visa . thanking you

The UK is different on marriage on a visitor visa, although not impossible.

But in Australia there appears to be no condition against getting married on a visitor visa, or applying for a partner visa, married or unmarried, while on a visitor visa.

The changes to sponsors, although not yet in force, might make the timing harder to get an 820 application in, at some point in the future.

I see . I assume it would be easier to marry in OZ after arrival as arriving as a spouse
and then applying for a partner visa in OZ means that one has not told the truth when applying for visitor visa as not intended for that purpose . I have read a few articles of migration agents on this and seems problematic. In my future wife;'s case . likley to be the condition on visitor visa saying that no further visa can be applied for in OZ . ( condition inserted in visa grant if from so called high risk country?. Most unfair really as discrimination . thanks again

Hi All,

have been spying the forum for the last a couple weeks and decided to join in the conversation. Who knows someone might be able to help me with my condition.

I would like to thanks everyone in advance for the sharing, have been learning a lot from the Forum.

Here are a little background of myself.

- I am a citizenship by birth but just recently moved to Australia last year.

- Now applying 820 onshore for my wife and we have been together since 2012. Have 1 son (6 years old) and another child in the belly atm (about 3-4 months pregnancy).

- applying 820 online without agent since December 2018 and granted BVA since Jan 2019, foolishly we haven't upload any document since than until I read all the information in this forum (thank you all for that and i think its better late than nothing).

- haven't been assigned any CO since then but asked to do health assessment (My guess it was generated from immi account because there are no CO information on the request) and we did on Jan 2019.

-in the progress of submitting all the document and so far only missing the PCC for my wife which we have apply for last weekend (finger crossed hope it will come in the next couple days).

-I am hoping we will get any news after submitting my wife Australian PCC. if not then i might have to apply BVB for our plan to travel outside Australia.

any suggestion what should we do in the meantime?

any input is much appreciated.

So here is my timeline:
apply 820: Dec 2018
BVA since: Jan 2019
Medical check: Jan 2019
upload doc: Sept 2019 (Doh!)

Hi Dawk, I have a BVC with a no work restriction which is disappointing. Can I ask what visa your partner was on when she applied for the 820 Visa?

As I applied onshore for the 820 visa I have to receive a schedule 3 waiver. Have you read anything about this waiver? You have to give compelling reasons why you applied onshore.

Hi Emily, my wife visa was a tourist but there were no "no further stay" clause on her visa as that was her second tourist visa from Australia... I don't know anything about waiver...

Anyhow I'm planning to send a genuine inquiry for my wife visa as I think I have a strong case.. I have baby due on feb plus I have a son that 6 years old already with my wife... finger cross wish me luck...

I am eligible to apply for my 801 in a couple of months in December however I’m also going back to UK this month for Christmas / holiday. I’m wanting to apply for 801 when I get back to Australia after this holiday. Do you think I’m taking a risk waiting just over a month after the eligible date to actually apply for 801 or will this be fine?
Long story short : How long do people actually have after 2 years date to add their documents for 801 PR visa?
Thanks so much !!

Hi Dawk,

aw good, you do not have to worry about the waiver as your partner was on a tourist visa.

All the best with your visa. :)
