Hi all, I was in a de facto with a Kiwi and came here with 461 visa. But last year I broke up with my Kiwi partner and started seeing this Aussie guy.
My question is as far as I am aware I don't have to inform Immigration about me ending my de facto with my ex partner (Kiwi) but will it cause any problem when I applied for 820 with my current partner?
Is the fact I move from one de facto from another will raise some issue with the Immigration?
Thanks heaps for your help 馃檪

They would potentially question your motives for the relationship.

Namely is it legitimate or is it being used as a route into Australia.

However if you are in a genuine relationship you will be able to overcome the increased scrutiny and it shouldn't pose an issue to you. You may also struggle to show when you got into a relationship with your new partner to the exclusion of all others.

You have some reading to do as to visa requirements and exactly what you need to be able to prove and how to go about it.

I'm just curious if the breakdown of the relationship would potentially cancel the 461 like it would (potentially) with a 309/820.

Strangely enough it dosen't, and if you read some of the previous posts in this forum, the visa can be renewed.
Well, isn't that something. Had no idea.

It can be renewed as long as you don't enter into a new relationship. It's quite a generous arrangement actually.

It's generous but unfair at the same time I think. Aust government making it easier for NZ citizens to bring their partners here. While their own citizens (and/or PR) who are trying to get their partners here need to spend all the money and time to apply for partner visa.
It's just ridiculous to be honest.

They are still have required to submit an application, provide the required evidence, and pay a fee. They also have to wait fr it to be processed.
Also it is a temporary visa only.

NZ citizens in Australia who want to sponsor someone for a permanent partner visa have to meet all the same requirements as everybody else. There are some concessions for NZ citizens applying under skilled or employer sponsored migration and why shouldn't there be? The Kiwis are far more generous towards Australians ( both citizens and PR) living in NZ than we are to them.
