Hi everyone! I am new here and this is my first post! My partner and I are getting ready to lodge our defacto partner visa offshore with the Berlin office. I was wondering how everyone handled the difference in the Berlin Checklist Vs the Offshore checklist on the immi site? the Berlin checklist seems to be very simple and to the point and doesn't say it has to be in four main categories of evidence etc...any help or advice on what your application looked like would be of great help. Thanks!

Hello. I looked at the Berlin website and couldn't seem to find the checklist that you mention - where is it found? We will be applying next year and I am starting to organize our paperwork.

oh sorry it will not let me post a link to the page because I am a new member and I need at least 5 posts. sigh. I tried! I went to the "Partner and Family Migration" link on the Australian embassy in Berlin page and then clicked on "Migrating as a partner" and then you can see the checklist. then you choose the situation that applies to you. we are going for de facto so, I clicked on the de facto section. there are also separate lists for the "sponsor" and "applicant" Its definitely a good idea to start collecting early. I am nearly finished, just writing all of the last things and then we can submit. I hope I haven't left anything out! good luck! :)

Thanks very much! I was using the information posted on the main DIAC site before and the Berlin-specific guidance does look considerably simpler to collect.

you are very welcome! ya me too at first! It took me a while to find this checklist. So i was very confused which one to follow so basically I took the middle road and covered both except left out things that berlin specifically said not to turn in. I hope I didn't too much. Its taken me so long to collect this stuff. I really can't wait to turn it all in really. even though you are stuck with a long wait after... I still worry that I have left something out. Anyways, best of luck with it all. :)

That sounds great but what I was hoping to know was did you follow the Berlin checklist exactly or did follow the general offshore checklist from immi website and booklet instructions. just curious as i noticed Berlin's checklist seems so much easier. good luck with it all!

Hello everybody

In 4 days there will be exactly 6 months since I applied, I have sent an email to my CO asking about the status of my application but all I get back is silence....

Hi everybody,

Today my wife and I are flying to Australia. We got the visa around a month ago and we are ready now to start a new life in Down Under.

Thank you all for all your help and support during these months.

All the very best.
