Quick Certified Copy Question

Hey all,

I apologise if this has been covered but struggle to find it.....defacto application is well underway in terms of gathering evidence.

I am currently in the UK (Home. partner is back in aus...we have evidence of contact during this short time apart so that shouldn't be an issue)

So I need to get a copy of my birth certificate and certified which is all fine right now however the application will not go to immigration until July...7 months away. If the copy is certified now, will it be too early and voided? Or once it is certified..is there no expiry date?

If you are applying online you don't need things certified. Just a colour scan. I have just scanned UK marriage and birth certificates and uploaded.

Also no expiry date for certification as far as I know.

Just wanted to check that you are aware of the 10-14 months processing time for visas in the UK. The website is very out of date and just thought I'd let you know in case it's worth your while submitting earlier.

I knew it was long, just not that long! I am applying from aus, I will return on a student visa on the 4th Feb. What sort of processing time is it from Australia?

It takes even longer for onshore applications, plus the additional cost of the visa.
I'm not 100% sure of the processing times, but others here will be able to help.
After application your student visa terms will remain in place until the visa expires. After your student visa expires then you will get a bridging visa with full work right until a decision is made on your partner visa.

Any thoughts on if I can request full rights be given to me before my student visa runs out?

I don't think this is possible. There are a few threads on here where people on student visas , for various reasons, have wanted to work full time while waiting for their partner visas and have queried cancelling their student visas to get the bridging visa. However I think this is a risky thing to do and ends up being very complex and advised strongly against going down this route as it can impact your partner visa application.

So until your student visa expires you will have to stick to the rules that visa comes with.

Not likely as the purpose of a student visa is study not to work. The only time they can work more than 20 hours a week is during university holidays.

If you want to work and not study why not come back to Australia on a tourist visa? Then you can work after the tourist visa expires in 3 months and your bridging visa kicks in. Just be aware people have found it hard to get work on a bridging visa.
