Hey all!

Me and my girlfriend are coming from Finland to Australia this summer. She is going to study in the university and Im going to travel and just do vacation. I've been saving up for this for a year and I already have a tourist visa. My girlfriend is applying right now with student visa 500 and the application is little confusing.

Does she need to put me/my info as a partner on her visa?

We are just going to be there for the end of year and then back to our families in Finland.

Thanks in advance!

Not unless you are in a de facto relationship.
Thank you for your answer!

Well, we've lived together for 2 years now, but things are little different. Meaning I own the flat but her name is not a rent agreement and she has a different address for her mail etc. But I see this that she's going there to study and Im visiting with my tourist visa, staying for couple of months, travelling to surrounding countries and coming back until we leave back home.

Does this make sense?

Sorry for sounding like a repeating idiot, I just like to be sure. :)

It will make very little difference to you. If you were subsequently going to apply for partner visas down the line then you would look more into this but realistically you can choose either way.

Based on your above post it would sound like your a defacto partner.
Based on your use of the word girlfriend it sounds like dating.

I would be inclined to put down as a partner due to your living arrangements.
