We are getting rejected, aren't we?

I read many threads about rejection of visas and one of them even made me cry just moments ago. So I decided to create this post.

My husband says I should stay away from the forum because some of your stories break my heart and others fill me up with fear. But so far I’ve had nothing but help from your advice and good will. I thank you for that. Infinitely…

However the more I read your posts the more convinced I get that our visa will be rejected. The reason for that is pretty straightforward, regardless of how much we love each other and can prove that or not, maybe we haven’t been together for a long time (long enough to satisfy the immi. criteria). Here are the facts:

- Met in October 2013 in Moscow (*we both had jobs in Moscow back then and we both hated it)
- Started officially dating end 2013/beginning 2014
- Got engaged March 2014
- Moved in together April 2014
- Decided to move together to Bali (*start a new life there spring 2014), and have the wedding in Bali, August 2014
- I am Macedonian, so I left Russia, and went to Macedonia, my husband went straight to Bali and tried to get us settled in while I had to apply for Indonesian multi-year visa and had my Indonesian visa approved in August 2014. We had to be separated for a month and a half.
- During the summer, my husband’s and my (*not) working conditions in Bali didn’t meet our expectation at all and we decided that Australia would be the best place for us to start a family and live a normal life.
-We lodged our ONLINE application 10.09.2014 and so far haven’t heard anything. (of course*)
- We lived married life only after lodging the application (309/100) basically, while we were in Bali. That means we have been married for 11 days only! on the date we lodged the visa application!
- In the meantime I got a visitor visa approved for a 1 year period.
- Before Christmas 2014, my husband got a job in Australia, he quit his job in Bali &
….-here we are in Australia, with him working and me doing an observership as a medical officer, while we have to live with his parents (*which is actually quite great) (*because we have to save for unexpected costs such as plane tickets and application fees and all sorts of migration related things and also I love my in-laws a lot!).

I have left my career in Moscow as a doctor, to start a family with my now husband and to just live a normal life in a normal (and beautiful) country like Australia, but I think it will be all have been done in vain, because at the end of the day what the immi need is the facts above and no excuses.

Objectively, do you guys think I have a shot, or did we make a terrible mistake for applying too early and are we just wasting our time and money (and mental health!)? And should we just go back to Russia where I can go back to being a useful member of society and not a pitiful overseas bride?

So what do YOU reckon? Do I start packing or do I just...wait for another year and more?

PS. If we have read more of this forum before applying, we wouldn't have been even applying, nor would I be writing this post now. Sadly, we didn't read enough. We were in love and not very careful. We did what we thought is right. And there will be a price for that to pay. Having said that, no matter what the outcome of the visa is we are determined to stay together, wherever that has to be...

Think it may help to add a bit more evidence.

1) Like your marriage certificate
2) Joint name bills and such.
3) Lease... etc.

These things will help. But I think your case is ain't that bad. Maybe a bit more evidence may help.

Don't panic too much. And remember CO don't reject applications for the sake of rejecting .If a CO feels like u lack evidence they will give u a chance to gather something ( 28days).

I would not panic if I were you.

I don't even know anymore I applied from Bali, as in Jakarta being the closest Australian Embassy, but then again, I applied online. I do not even live on address I provided. I didn't think they will give me a year's Visitor visa and so one thing led to another...we moved to Australia so my husband can work and I can sit the medical license exams etc.

I am so desperate.

That's a good question!...It is. Or at least that's what the wedding planner told us. (We have 2 marriage certificates - One from the Indonesian government, the other from the Church). We are both atheists, but we had to have a priest just for the sake of being legal! That required some good deal of paperwork too and also the wedding was sort of expensive as the venue/organizer was one of the most famous/well rated among Australians who want to marry over there.

So, I think it's recognized, but never even occurred to me to have that double checked!
(If it turns out that we are not legally married, I'm not going to care about rejection, I am going to direct a movie based on our love story )

That's the spirit,

Add in all your new living agreements, bills, and update letter online. Add a few more form 888 as well. Do this asap and add an update every month on what you can - your application is in progress and all you add now will be considered as part of the original application (add not important stuff on your partners immi account and all good stuff on yours) as I said we are April and waiting - I know others over 12 months. Make sure they now have your current address details and contacts.
