Hello :)
We are living together since the 01.06 and are registered since the 18.7.
And we are in a committet relationship since 12.1. with living in different countries. ;)
Ok, so am i right with
- living in a defacto relationship since 01.06( time we first moved toegether)
- we are registered as a civil union. so is this still de facto? ( as we can just choose between de facto, engaged and married in the form)
Thanks for anyones help :)

Hi,

I just want to be sure I understand this 100% right:
One can apply for the visa 820 onshore on the basis of de facto relationship (having met de facto partner requirements) AND be engaged at the same time. Correct?

A registered relationship is a de facto relationship. If you are also engaged then you would need to put engaged.
Shoot. I may have made a mistake on our application. As our relationship status I put de facto. However, we had been engaged for 3 weeks at the time. I thought by putting engaged it would imply we are applying for a PMV 300.

Shit. Would a "update details" and explanation suffice?

Yes.

Is that not the question on the online form that determines which visa you're applying for? Would that not flag that they are applying for the PMV? (It's been too long since I've seen the online app so I don't remember!)

I just ran a little test. When you select engaged it doesn't change the application to PMV, at least it didn't for me.

I've sent the Department the correct information. Then called and spoke to someone who said the changes have been noted and that we are still applying for the right visa.

So all good here. :D

There wouldn't be anything to "change" - it's the same application for the 300 and the 820, right? (At least, it WAS the same when I did it originally.) So there has to be something that tells them which visa you're applying for - and my understanding was that it was that question. I'm just trying to make sure we don't steer the OP wrong. I'm glad they said yours is okay, Eh?, but you know how reliable Immi are with phone answers, heh. :)

The reason I think this is important is that I remember someone on this forum accidentally ticking the wrong thing to indicate which visa they were applying for, and they were actually denied their visa even though they would have qualified for it had they ticked the correct box.

Oh yeah, I hear ya. At the end of the day, the OP is looking for proper advice and we have their best interest in mind. I didn't mean to hijack the thread, but it got me to thinking "Oh, fart, we put de facto when we were engaged", so for my piece of mind, I filled out the changes and alerted them.

We're getting married on the weekend anyways, so it will be changing yet again. But at least we will update them with documentation, not just me writing/calling and saying "hey, flubbed this part". Haha :D

I just created an application and one of the first questions on there are "Is the applicant in Australia?" And then "Is the applicant applying for a Prospective Marriage Visa?"

The next page then asks for the applicant's personal details, including relationship status with the options of engaged, married, or de facto.

So it is possible to apply for the 309/100 and list your relationship status as engaged.

Yep. That's what sealed it for me this morning. Even if I didn't need to notify them, it at least shows I'm on the ball and have an open line of communication with regards to our application.
