Apply for Visa 820

689 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  gift
Hi everyone. In 9th of Feb it will be one year since my partner and I have moved in together (we started our relationship 1.6 years ago). As we applied to register our relationship and we are just waiting for the certificate to lodge the visa, do you reckon it’s better I lodge the visa now (I have collected all the documents and they are ready to be uploaded) and when I receive the certificate, I upload it (as I’m worried that the new legislation may come to effect this week); or still wait for the certificate?

Also, I have posted my application for registering relationship in Victoria one month ago. Does anyone know how long it takes that they send me the certificate?
Many thanks.

Thanks Russel for your response. I know I don't need the certificate but because when we start moving in was 9th of Feb last year, certificate could have helped for the requirement of living exactly 12 month together. My main question is can I lodge my visa now (and don't wait until 9th of Feb), as I'm worried about the new legislation for partner visa?
