Hello good day. I am from the Philippines and my partner and I would like to apply in Visa Subclass 476 with de facto partner. I would just like some clarification regarding the engineering graduate diploma. Should the date of visa lodging before the 2 year-graduate period or is it the visa acceptance? Example: the engineering diploma is until January 2020. Is it acceptable if we submit the visa application before January 2020 or the visa should already be granted by January 2020. Thank you!
