Post Visa Subclass 820/801 (samesex)

Hi guys,

Is there any one who went or going through visa 820/801 same sex? If yes I would like to share the experience you are having and I am having at the moment.

At the moment I have gt the 820 visa and waiting for next stage documents. So I really would like to keep updating all the steps when they come. So if there is anyone in this situation please reply to this post.

My two year waiting period is going to end in end of February 2012.

Waiting for your reply!
Cheers
WillyWilly

Hey!

Best of luck to you.

My partner and I are just starting this process, and have got most of the stuff we can ready, just need to get a lot of things certified, and wait for the Form 888s to start coming in from friends and families.

Sorry I can't help you, but hopefully you can help me!

How long did it take for the 820 to be approved? I'm on a 485 that just got granted on Tuesday, so I'm not too stressed, but do you know if the two year waiting period for the 801 is the date of application (regardless of when is 820 granted) or it is two years after the 820 is granted?

We've got all the forms that they are asking for, as well as joint bank statements, individual bank statements, pay slips for both of us, as well as getting 10 form 888s, and 30 pictures, email chains, Facebook messages, etc, bills, City of Melbourne Relationship Register, etc... Any other advice of anything to add?

Thanks and good luck getting your 801!

Hi Mate first of all I have to ask you that wether you going to keep updating your situation even after you get the 801? Otherwise some people just do not log in after they get the visa. I hope you understand.

Well acording to your message, you have almost everything. To be hounust I did not put that much 888s. I only had 2. But you know what one of those 2 was not good as the friend who gave us 888 did not have his passport or anything to prove that he is an Australian. And got one from another friend. He was a mad case and once I submit it he told us he want to withdraw it. Can you believe? Finally after I was granted 820 we submit the second 888 from another friend.
Again did not have that much pictures. Only had 4 pictures and sent them.
But we are livingtogether. We had the joint bank account and we only sent that statement.
I lodged the application on 03/02/2010 and I got a letter from Immigration saying that they have recieved that application dated 09/02/2010. Thats the date where 2 years period is started. So its not the date that they going grant your 820 visa.
And again I got a letter at the end of June asking more evidence such as expenses, pictures and letters addressed to both of us. At that time we had some evidence and sent them. Finally I was granted 820 on 10/08/2010.

I think you have almost everything and you will be granted 820 very soon.

Cheers mate!

Saw that NOBODY had replied to your question, hopefully someone who knows about this can help you more. I'm not sure whether employment is a must.
I don't think that would affect you, but I think you would have to provide where your income has been coming from, and how you both share expenses. Not very sure though, since I haven't applied for anything myself.

Satutory declarations from Australian Citizens are a MUST. Surely he has parents? Siblings? Aunts, uncles or cousins? One of them must know you are in a relationship!

As for being a student, shouldnt be an issue. My hubby was unemployed when he sponsored me. We sent CV's which were not asked for but in my statement I put it showed we were well qualified and able to get jobs in Australia. They're looking for possible high users of welfare so if you can show you wont be you'llbe ok.

I don't think high users of welfare are a giant worry to Immi since they removed the AOS, and in the partner visa application 47sp they just ask your usual occupation(Question 30); partner's usual occupation(Question 57), have you ever been granted to work in Australia (Question 83), and Have you ever been paid any benefits or received any social services from a government agency in Australia (Quesion 84). They don't try to go into depth to find out your finances. Although I think they could find that out if you gave them a joint account statement. In the end of the page of 47sp question 94, you are practically signing to acknowledge that the Australian government will not be responsible if your partner or you run out of funds to support you, or if you can't find a job. I think that is reasonable.

In application 40sp they ask your partner 34 What is your current employment status (Question 34); Have you been in paid employment at any time during the last 2 years (Question 35). For question 35 they ask you for a few income documents, but it doesn't seem too important because I think it suggests you should, and it doesn't say you must. Either way your partner has to sign in the bottom of the page acknowledging that he/she has to be responsible for you for the first 2 years of your stay until a decision is made on your permanent visa.

Anyway, don't realy on my info too much. I am only writing what it seems to me. I am not an immi agent.

No you're not an immigration agent and I wouldn't rely to much on that information or you might risk not getting your visa!

I think you'll find that all spouse visas can be made to pay an Assurance Of Support if the CO feels it is necessary. If they feel there is a risk the sponsor may not be able to fulfil their sponsorship obligations although it is not mandatory any more.
Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 34. Assurance of Support

The sponsors income and ability to support their partner is compulsory evidence for a spouse visa to granted..............

http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/_pdf...-checklist.pdf

"Photocopies of one of the following documents to show your sponsorís employment during the last two years:

Australian income and/or overseas tax assessment notice, a letter from their employer confirming length of employment and annual salary, payslips, if your sponsor is self-employed or self-funded from other sources, business documents or a letter from your sponsorís accountant"


You also need to send information on joint financial interests to prove an exclusive defacto relationship! ie lease, bank statements, joint loans or mortgages etc. They know more about you than your mother does by the time you get your PR visa!
