Exclamation Bridging to Partner visa

Hi guys,

I'm planning to apply for partner visa with the relationship certificate in the beginning of December 2011 which will make us 4 months of living together.
I'm currently holding a student visa and planning to quit my school after lodging this application which will change me from Bridging A to the Bridging E Visa.

Would it effect my application? like....less chance to get approved for temp partner?

We have just gone through this process and our CO said it will not affect our 820 application at all. They understand that when someone is in a defacto or married relationship that most if the time priorities change and sometimes studying can be too expensive.

We were also concerned about this and I think bridging visa e is punishment enough!!! It's quiet common for people on student vida to withdraw once thy have applied for a spouse visa. We are planning on applying to have the work restriction removed from bridging visa e. At the moment we are still waiting for the student section to cancel the student visa. There is a huge backlog and we have been waiting over a month but I guess my husbands is not a priority because we have applied for spouse visa. He can still work 20hrs/wk until the visa is cancelled but he doesn't have to go to school.

hi vrinoz,
Even with the relationship certificate, I think having only 4 months living together will be a problem & you'll be wasting your time & money applying. They usually expect at least 6 months living together w/ relationship cert. Wait the extra 2 months before applying.

Cheers

That is true but I guess it would depend on the quality of the evidence - for a relationship of only 4 months you'd have to have extremely convincing evidence. They can't outrightly reject the application if the CO is convinced by the evidence, but I agree if they can they should wait for another 2 months.

Decision :)

Thx guys
We have strong evidences but I decide to continue my study which will cost me $1,300 just because it'll help increase the chance of getting approved.
So I will lodge my application in late March 2012 which will make us living together for 7.5 months

Now I'm a bit concern about the police check.
How recent would they need?

That's good. Police checks are only valid for 1 year - so if you submit it and it expires before they make a decision they'll ask for a new one.

Smile Lodged a Thai police check application

Just want to update here that I went to get my 2 sets of finger prints from the police station today. It's been hard to get into their custody room I don't know why it's always occupied lol.

But I got it done today and popped my express envelope to Thailand already. yay!!! been waiting for weeks.

Just get all the docs(Filled request form, certified copies of; house registration, passport, ID card, my partner's statement letter and his ID) and envelope ready and after they gave me the finger print they ask me to seal the envelope in front of them.

That's all!
