What reasons did they give for the rejection? Was it solely based on the 12month living together factor or was there something else? Very sorry to hear that. All the best with your next application

Sorry to hear you visa wasn't granted.

I was wondering if you or anyone could give me some advice??

I live in the UK and my partner is from Australia, we have now been in a relationship for 2 years and 3 months and i want to move to Australia on a de-facto visa. Here is a little bit of what we have done.


We met in (August 7th 2009).

I lived in Australia on a working holiday visa for 9 months and spent 8 months of our relationship together (we lived separately but spent most weekends living together).

I left to travel for 2 months before returning to the UK and my partner traveled for 6 months (long term plans) before he moved to England (September 2010)

We lived together for 8 months and he returned to oz in April 2011

Since he left i has visited him for a month. (September 2011)

And he is traveling to the UK early December 2011 until late January 2012

We have a joint British bank account and bills in our names.

We have extensive photographic, email, Facebook, Skype, history along with Christmas and birthday cards. Along with many references if required.

Does anyone know if this is enough to apply for a de-facto visa or what our chances are??

Although we dont live in the same country as we have already used the working holiday visa, we speak all the time and can prove this.

In 14 months we have only been apart 6 of them.


Any information would be great, Thank you.

Hi.. Do you share finances?? Have you paid for any on his trips or vice versa?? I think without a strong financial connection the breaks you've had maybe too long to count in the 12 month defacto requirement. Even though you have only been apart for 5 or 6 months in total out of 14 months it's almost half the living requirement without very strong financial evidence it may be hard for immigration to establish that you are in a true defacto relationship as apposed to a long distance relationship.

I agree .... my advice would be to go through an agent .... we have just sought one and they now everything you need to do .... its an added expense but having been through 7 months of waiting to be told we did not have the requirements for the defacto visa ...well worth it ..... good luck x

Hi, Thankyou for your reply. We have paid for each other's trips. I booked and paid for a holiday to Portugal and bought train tickets for when he arrives in the UK, and my partner paid for me to visit him in September this year. We have evidence of this, and we are starting to save up money in our joint account and pay for things from this account. Do you think that would be enough evidence?


We are thinking of collecting all the evidence and going to see someone whilst he is in the UK and see what our chance's are, do you know if you can make an appointment with the immigration department for advice? Or can you only see them when you are lodging your application?

If you get rejected does this affect you applying for any other visa?

That would certainly help but the length of breaks apart is still concerning.

Immigration will not give you advice as to whether you have enough evidence or not. They are not allowed to give advice, just information.

It may be best for you to see an immigration agent. They can be expensive but maybe just get an initial consultation with them in regards to your evidence.

If your visa application is refused you can apply again but you will lose the application fee from the rejected one. It's expensive so maybe worth investing a bit in a an agent first.

Thankyou for all your information, it has been very helpful. I think we are best to see an agent once he get's here next month.

One last question, if I was to go on a visitor's visa for 3 months at a time for a year would that class as our year together?? and can I do that?? I no I wouldn't be able to work.

We are running out of idea's.
