My fiance is Australian we have a January wedding booked, hopefully I'll hear something really soon!

Good Luck to everyone who is going through this long process, it will definately be worth the wait!
Hi Selly, We submitted our medicals on the second, I know that the CO has the results but she wont tell me what they are just that they have been 'updated in the system'... have you heard any news in regards to your medicals?....

hi mark

I called the embassy not too long ago, and asked if my medical and police check arrived she said yes. I don't have a case officer yet nor have i heard about my visa being approved. I hope i hear something soon so I can just book my flight already! do you know if there is any way I could find out what the progress is on our visa? or is it a bad idea for me to call them?

Hi Selly

I think we would all love to know where our visa is upto, however it doesnt work like that unfortunatly. Many people dont find out anything until they at least get offered an interview (which is usually the last stage of the process) or until the visa is granted.

I have noticed some people get 'sent for final decision' notifications but not always. unfortunatly you just have to hang in there and try not to overthink or overworry, it will be done when its dfone... this is a government department after all goodluck!

I'm from Mauritius and will be getting married to a Mauritian guy in September. He has been in Australia for the past 16 years. He is an Australian Citizen. He is actually in New Zealand since 1 year regarding work purposes. He has got a new job offer in Sydney where he will join in about 1 month. We will probably get married in Sydney or Perth. I will apply for my Prospective Marriage Visa in 1 month here at the Austalian High Commission of Mauritius and just have some questions about the NOIM which I have to produce together with my visa application.

1. My fiancé is in New Zealand, can he download the NOIM and sign it in the presence of an authorised person like a notary public?

2. Should that authorised person also certified copies of my fiancé's birth certificate, passport etc?

3. What about me? I have read that only one person may sign the NOIM and the other before the wedding ceremony. Is it ok if I don't sign and my fiancé sends the form to the celebrant?

4. On the NOIM there are fields that the bride also has to fill in, and produce documents like the birth certificate etc. Should I make a copy of each and send it to my fiancé before he sends everything to the celebrant or is it not necessary for me to send the copies for the time being?

5. If I have to send him all the documents, should they be all certified?

6. If I need to send him my documents to send to the celebrant, should I scan them and send to him or by mail?

I know there are so many questions but I'm so stressed out with the Visa.

Hoping you will be able to help me.

When you are stressed out, it makes it hard, so my advice is to keep it simple and so the answer to your NOIM questions, in every instance is YES.
1. Yes. He can download the NOIM and have it signed in front of a notary ( you should check the list on the NOIM itself when you are out of the country)
2. Yes. They will want to see certified copies of his identification papers.
3. Yes. He can sign it, send it in and the celebrant can confirm your paperwork prior to the ceremony ( so you will need certified copies of passport, birth, ID records) Keep those with you but you will need them on the day.)
4. Yes, Certify everything. To within an inch of its life!
5. Yes, you can scan them for his peace of mind, but you will need the actual certified copies on the day the celebrant verifies them and has you sign the NOIM which your fiance has previously submitted and signed.

I hope it all goes well and that I have not missed any bits that were causing you stress.

Hi Mark !
Its so good to see that someone else is in the same boat as us..

Me and my partner also live apart mostly and communicate online, thus its also a struggle to provide proof on nature of household & financial since we only live together for 3 months.. I've been following this forum and your situation is one that is most similar with ours.

For now, i am planning to submit copies of our plane tickets n copy of credit card bills to show that we finance the trip together.

please keep updating your status

Keep the Faith !!
