It shouldn't be an issue as they removed the requirement for an Assurance of Support in January 2012. However you need to be aware that as the Sponsor you will be financially responsible for your Partner, and they will not be able to access any government support until they have been in Australia for two years. Being in a defacto relationship may also affect your Centrelink payments and you would be obliged to report your change in circumstances to them upon his arrival.

Check here for more info:

Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 34. Assurance of Support

Also ensure you familiarise yourself with the Partner Migration Booklet. Page 16 outlines your obligations as the sponsor.

http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/booklets/1127.pdf

Keep in mind you and your partner will also have other costs to meet as part of the visa application - medicals can cost up to $500, police checks, courier fees, payment to marriage celebrant for NOIM, costs for certified copies of official documents, etc. It would probably be closer to $3000 that the whole PMV process ends up costing...

hi sally-met-harry
I too have just applied for PMV for my bali partner. I am on centrelink, so it will be interesting to see how we go. We also included a letter from a friend who is happy to employer my partner as soon as his visa gets approved... i hope that has helped us..

Have you applied for a tourist visa yet? if you havent had one yet, dont go for 12mth straight away. 4 weeks for the first one. we got rejected on a 3mth m/e for our 1st. they really like to have evidence that your partner is coming back to a commitment in bali ie: job, house etc. immi think they are all going to do a runner to oz and not come back

oh thats good ! we are on our 3rd too, we've had 1 mth, 2 mth, then we asked for 3mth multiple entry and its valid for 12mths. so pretty happy !! where are you guys from, I am in Perth and my partner is from Karangasem... Having the multiple entry is great, as soon as my partner can do his medical, he can just fly back here..

i was just looking at immi visa site and it says.....Your parent or guardian must be your fiancé's sponsor if your fiancé is applying for this visa and you are all of the following:

aged 16 or 17 years of age

in Australia

want to sponsor your fiancé who is aged 18 years or over.

so does that mean my mum could sponser him we are both over 18 i just worry about my income at the moment...but my mum is happy to sponser him but im not sure if thats possible for a fiance visa or do i have to sponser him

Your post says you must be 16 or 17 for your parent to be able to sponsor him. Then you said you are over 18... So you wouldn't qualify.
