I lodged my partner visa application today at the Sydney processing centre and although there was a queue and it said on a poster on the wall that you should lodge it by post, the lady behind the desk was very nice and accepted it without any questions or moans. I don't know if it was just the Christmas mood

On the other hand my application was in a neat pile, held together by paper clips and a string and the lady said it looked all very good whereas she got impatient with the people in front of us who had to rummage around in their bags for ages until they found everything.

So maybe if you've got it all together and it is easy to lodge they still accept it.

Just thinking aloud.. I am planning to post my application in using AusPost's Express Post service.. So which address of "Partner (Temporary) Processing Centre - Western Australia" should I use?

Street address:
Ground floor
Wellington Central
836 Wellington Street
West Perth WA 6005


Postal address:
Locked Bag 7
Northbridge WA 6865

Especially since I may be choosing a signature on delivery feature on my application? Postal address sounds to me like a PO box, where no one is manning it.. But I am after all sending my application by post, so it also feels like I should be using the postal address..

Any ideas???
Hey Missjaay,

I had the same doubt. Actually, I wanted to hand my application in at Melbourne office but they did not let me do that. So I had to post it but I wanted to make sure someone would sign it when delivered and was worried no one would manage the PO box. I asked and was told that I should send it to the POSTAL address (so the PO box, nor the street address). I sent it by Premium Express Post (1 working day delivery, track record on line on the Post website and signature on delivery). When I checked on line the day after, it said "delivered" but did not mention the name of who received it, so I started worrying that it only had reached the PO box but no one had actually received it in their hands. Within a half an hour I received the acknowledgement letter from the processing center by email, so I think that there is someone who constantly manage the PO box.

Good luck!

They process very quick if you post it to P.O box, my case office told me that. If you drop it off, it goes through internal processing, takes a day or two to reach partner processing dept.
