Bit of background:

I'm the NZ citizen (moved to Aus in December 2020)
My partner - Malaysian on a 485 visa expiring March 2021 (189 EOI submitted in April 2020 no news yet)

We have been in a long distance relationship since 2013 (due to studies, work, family commitments and Covid). We do visit each other regularly and usually spend our summer months together.
How should we fill in this section-
" If you are married or in a de facto relationship with the New Zealand
citizen, have you lived separately or apart for any period of time?"

From December 2020 we have a joint bank account, lease agreements. However we are still quite worried of being disapproved as we do not fulfil the "de facto relationship" requirements.

At this point we'd really just hope to be granted the bridging visa while they consider our application with full evidence. Would anyone have any advice?

Thank you

You should answer yes and explain the circumstances

If you make a valid application, they will grant a bridging visa. Processing times are several years for onshore 461 applications at the moment.
