I've been lurking around these forums while I worked on my application. Just submitted for my offshore Partner VISA. Nervous as hell...
Thanks, CG. I'm mostly nervous because I've spent so much time putting this together and we have a somewhat unique situation being a very international marriage. He was living and working in Japan, I was working in California and he came for a business trip to the states two years ago. We decided to meet up (we're old friends from Japan - I worked there too before) and well, hit it off. What that's meant, though, is a lot of periods apart punctuated by visits, sometimes to the US, once to Japan and twice to Australia. He proposed in Dec 2012 and we were married in Melbourne this past January, but I worry that it looks hella weird to Immi. We both quit our jobs and established ourselves in Melbourne (spent 3 full months together, finally), but I had to head back to the US to finish up some contract work and get the wedding party stuff organized. So, we're applying, but as you can see it's not exactly the most conventional of relationships...Don't be nervous! And welcome.
I know how you feel. I guess we have all gone through that stage eh. That anxious, nervous etc, kind of feeling. I wish you the best. I hope you will get your visa grant soon.I've been lurking around these forums while I worked on my application. Just submitted for my offshore Partner VISA. Nervous as hell...
