I applied for the 461 visa on March 2,2016 at the AHC in Nairobi,Kenya.I am Kenyan and my partner is Kiwi.We have been in a committed relationship for 2 years and we have lived together for 8 months. We have also registered our relationship in QLD and we provided plenty of evidence (covering the 4 main categories) to show that we are a de facto couple.

I decided to wait till they asked for medicals.On April 21st,my CO asked me to submit the following additional information : medicals,my Kenyan PCC with fingerprints and my partner's notice of assessment (tax assessment). I was given 28 days.I completed the medicals on 18th May 2016 and submitted all the requested documents as well.On June 6th ,2016, i was contacted by my CO advising me that my medicals have been cleared and that the application will be finalized soon. She also requested that in the meantime, i send her a copy of my passport including all stamped pages.

Now we are just waiting and hoping for the best !!!

I have read all your comments seem like it take long time to grant visa . Can I stay in Aus by bridging visa ? I'm planning to apply in June but my student visa will expire in August which not sure my 461 will be granted at that time.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Kay,

IMAN Health insurance is well known by immigration. You can choose the budget plan as its their cheapest -
Yes you can still apply although immigration will give you the bridging visa according to what they decide for your situation.

I think you have to be married to the person if you are applying for this visa or at least prove that the two of you are in a genuine continuing relationship.

All the best
