You should start with reading the requirements for a second year 417: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/417-#tab-content-1Hello,
Im currently on my first work holiday visa (417) but i got a question about applying for a second year visa. My neighbour who came into australia on the same visa confused me a little bit.
I currently worked 6 months in a regional area in a pub. Does this apply for the second year application or not? He is saying it does but im pretty sure it doesn't.
Im currently engaged to someone here and we are planning to marry at some point. The problem is we cant afford the de facto or the partner visa just yet so are looking for a problem fixer.
Anyone has some ideas for us?
Also, getting married doesn't make your chances of getting a partner visa any different than not being married. It's about relationship evidence and you either meet the requirements or you don't. Being married isn't an automatic thing as most applicants would be in sham marriages just for the opportunity to live in Australia. So if you are already planning to marry, then go ahead, but don't do it for a partner visa because it doesn't really work that way. The onshore 820/801 is the same application whether you're de facto or married and requires the same evidence categories.
