Partner Visa Application

Hi Everyone!

My partner and I are about to apply for a partner visa, and I was hoping to get as much information and help from anyone who has had success!

We have been in a de facto relationship for over a year now, but only have evidence dating the past 4 months (since he has been in Australia with me). last year we were living in the UK together and have extensive photos etc.

We haven't registered our relationship but have a joint bank account and lots of photos and statuary declarations etc.

Just wondering if anyone has had any success with an application without registering your relationship?!

Any help is hugely appreciated!
Johanna

Hello and welcome. I really think without registering your relationship you would have a fairly difficulty case in proving to immigration that you have been in a defacto relationship for a year cause i have heard of cases where people have been rejected for even being short of just 2-3 weeks off the 12 month period. My suggestion is register your relationship if you can and provide as much evidence as you can showing you guys have been living together for past few months. Good luck

Thanks for the reply! We are going to register our relationship using the priority service. After speaking to the immigration line, they said that even if the registration application isn't complete, it still counts which is good

Yes i applied for partner visa 820 last year in July and i registered my relationship in June that year. Upon application i only submitted a receipt from the BDM department stating i had applied for partner visa and i submitted that as evidence along with my application and due to some complications at the BDM office we only received our relationship certificate sometime this year and my case officer recently contacted me and stated that the receipt is fine even though it is dated this year as we have the receipt proving we registered our relationship last year prior to my partner visa application

Oh that is great to hear! We are submitting our application 4 days before applying for the visa, so hopefully that isn't cutting it too fine! Thank you so much for your advice.

hi Johanna5,

You sure you dont have anything from the UK like a lease agreement, bills, rental payment to prove you are de-facto for a year? Any extra evidence will help. People have said on these threads that applications can get rejected for not meeting the 12 month requirement even by a few days.

What state do you live in? I registered with BDM in NSW and it took about 7 working days from when I posted to when payment was processed, didnt recieve a receipt either. Might want to double check how long they take before you apply for visa?

Good luck!

Thats terrible, we had no problems but whenever we called to ask questions they were hopeless! Lucky we have the certificate already so I dont have to deal with them again!

Hi everyone! I'm new here. I need advice please, right now I have a temporary partner subclass 820 visa and I will be eligible for 801 visa in July 2015. I wanted to know if anyone knows what would happen if I turned in my application late or missed the deadline for my application?

Why would you do that? You usually have 60 days to submit the paperwork after the eligibility date and you can always ask for an extension if you have a valid reason.

Whatever you do, don't just let the due date pass without advising the Department.
