Creating an immiaccount

Do I put my partners details (the one migrating to Australia) or my details, eg first name, last name and email, when creating the immiaccount?

The immi account is for the applicant.

My partner and I each have our own - one for me as the applicant and one for him as the sponsor.

You create the first one for the Applicant (i.e. the person who needs the visa).

Then it works like this:
- You will get an TRN number.
- Once you've submitted your form (I think its 40SP or 47SP for Partner Visas) you create another Immi Account for the Australian partner (Sponsor) using this number as a reference - the system then links the two. You can't open an Immi account for the australian partner before submitting your forms, it just kicks out an error message.

Glad to see you're starting the process, good luck!

You don't need to open another IMMI account - well you didn't when I applied. When we applied we opened an account for my partner - finished his application and then I completed the sponsor application in the same account using the TRN number it supplied us...

Well I've used my name, the sponsor, for the first account which apparantly should have been the applicants (I never even dreamed that you needed 2 accounts which sounds stupid and backward to me and I've heard everyone say "its the sponsor which is responsible and does most of the work" so assumed that would be the name to put). Should I now change the name of the account, I have already recieved the TRN number?

And can I use accents???? My partners name has an accent and it states:

"When completing your online application you must not copy and paste bullet points, numbering, accents etc from formatted documents into the free text fields. Only use numbers 0 9 and letters A Z (upper and lower case), dashes '-' and underscores '_'.​​​"

It asked me to confirm the information is correct or there could be trouble with boarding a plane for Australia and it isn't really correct because it doesn't have an accent like on all my partners documentation.

Engaus is right - you don't need another Immi account. What I should have said, is that many couples open a second account in order to upload some of the evidence via that account as each account only allows you to upload 60 documents.

And can I use accents???? My partners name has an accent and it states:
Hmm, I'm not sure exactly what to recommend...

Regarding the accounts:
Does the Sponsor Immi account that you've opened give you the option of filling in the form (40SP or 47SP)?
If not, you'll have to open a new one for her and get a new TRN number. Then after you've filled in the forms and paid you can see if you can cancel your unused account and open a new one.

Regarding the accents:
My wife has an accent on her name and we left it out. Admittedly, we haven't actually been through emigration at the airport yet but we're taking the risk that no-one will notice. Maybe see if the website will accept the accent, if you get an error message, then try again without.

I have accent in my name; never had them on my via and it has always be fine.
I think every couple is different for the people around me some the applicant did almost everything other the sponsor. Always the girl did almost everything (I guess sponsor might do more when the applicant doesn't have a good English?)

So you create ONE IMMI account. Within that account there are two applications that you need to complete.

1. Migration to Australia by a partner (need to be completed by the application)
2. Sponsorship for a partner to migrate to Australia (need to be completed by the sponsor)

Which one of these have you started? You can't get a TRN number until you have completed application 1 - and application 1 should be in your partners name as she is the applicant.

And dont worry about accents, as it wont allow you to complete it if you try to put them in. So long as the spelling is correct.

Some people create two IMMI account but I didn't and I think it makes it unnecessarily complicated - unless you need more room for documents, but I never had that problem.
