Hello everyone,

Just three quick questions

1. Do me and my partner HAVE to be living together? We've been together for over a year but don't live together. Can someone show me a link where it states if we do/dont?

2. Is it best to do the application online?

3. If i'm doing it online, which one is it of these? Stage 1? Do I have to do stage 2 also? Help lol



Thanks everyone!!!!

1.One of the requirements is to be living together. For a de facto application, it states "show that you and your partner are living together or, if not, that any separation is only temporary".

You can take a look here at the partner migration booklet: https://www.border.gov.au/Forms/Documents/1127.pdf

It's a little out of date in regards to some things but the requirements in terms of living together haven't changed as far as I'm aware.

2. You can only apply online now, paper applications are no longer accepted.

3. You have to apply for the 1st stage and 2 years after initial applications, you apply for the 2nd stage.

I suggest you have a good read of the link below and consider if you actually will meet de-facto requirements , before potentially wasting $ 7000.00. If you partner is overseas, you may want to consider a Prospective Marriage Visa instead.
