Sucess at MRT

Hi!Finally after only 6 months of waiting, MRT has issued their decision today.We won our case! My visa application will now be remitted back to DIAC, Manila. We were vindicated!!!

To those who had lost hope and are despondent, to those who doubted the system, please remember that if you have nothing to hide and if the relationship is genuine, there is no other recourse but fr MRT to give the go signal.....Have faith...trust that the system will work favorably for you and prepare the right evidences and pray hard.

our time timeline

September, 2010 - Applied at DIAC,Manila
October and February - Interviewed 2x,had to submit additional documents
3x
April, 2011 - visa application denied
May, 2011 - lodged an appeal at MRT
October, 2011 - hearing at MRT
November 21, 2011 - we received word that we won the case at MRT

To those who are undergoing the same concern, feel free to pm me and i will share with you what we went through...thanks to everyone and all those who prayed for us and supported us all the way...

Wonderful news, congratulations!!!

When you look back on your initial visa application, is there anything you would change, perhaps do differently?? I'm sure you've learnt so much about lodging partner visa in this whole process...
Why was your partner application denied in the first place? Did you then seek help from migration agents or did you go to MRT on your own??

I hope you don't mind those questions, but I rarely see any news of partner visas being approved through MRT on this forum...

Great news!!!

HI bma, I don't mind sharing our experiences hoping that others may benefit too.

Ours was denied on the basis that we don't have an exclusive relationship with each other.And we focused on proving that we are genuine and have exclusive relationship.

What would I have done differently?I should read this forum thoroughly, asked advices from those who went through the application, applied first for annulment of my previous marriage and have chosen a better migration agent!!

Some of the stuff he gave as advised made it worst for the applications and like a diligent customer, I should have shopped and looked around first and had chosen a better one and didn't grab the first one shoved towards me just because he is from the same country.He turned out t to be not very knowledgeable. I prepared all my documents and my own with a minimal participation from him.It was frustrating!!

But that's water under the bridge now...What is important is we have been vindicated and now just waiting for the visa to be issued by the embassy.I hope this was of help...

Hi Weng,
I am really happy for you. I think your visa will be issued quickly, after all this whole process must have been really long.
My partner will be applying for his partner visa sometime next year, that is why I sought help from a migration agent from my home country as well (based in Australia). From the first agent I got a really bad and wrong advice about returning resident visa, and the second agent does nothing for free and very little for the payment of an advisory hour. I actually got more information when browsing through these forum posts than from "my" migration agent.
That is why we decided we will apply for a partner visa on our own and are now diligently following forum posts.

Thank you once again for sharing your experience, good luck in Australia!

You are on the right track bma...in the end if you do your homework, do exhaustive reading and ask around from those who had gone through the same route, i.e, not using a migration agent, you will pull it through sans the extra dollars. Don't get me wrong, There are very good migration agents, excellent and competent and every penny is worth the while but you just have to discover them.

Thanks for the wishes..I have been in Oz by the way, lived there for 4 yrs before coming home to lodge offshore.To cut it short, I had all the assistance I needed from our solicitor.Hence, the MRT was a success!

Good luck to your application.leave no stone unturned in your quest for love.It will be rewarded in the end..Keep the hope and the love alive!God bless!

Hi Weng the situation that I have right now is not so good. Most likely my 857 application will be denied. One of the options is to submit an appeal to the MRT. How much did it cost you to apply for an appeal. What are the paperworks involved. I would assume that one of the difficult part is attending the hearing but that can be resolved. Would you know , or anyone from the forum know if I can apply for a different visa (say a new 457 visa) while waiting for the MRT decision?

Appreciate your help on this

Gerry
