309 and 100 queries


My wife who resides with me outside Australia just got granted her 309 visa.


1. Does she have to be living in Australia when she applies for subclass 100?
2. How soon can she apply and how when she arrives? Do we have to wait up to 2 years or can it be earlier since we have been married for 11 years?
3. How does she apply for subclass 100?
4. What are her chances if we decide to stay overseas during the processing time?
5. Once she gets the sub class 100..how long does she have to stay there in order to apply for citizenship?

Thanks in advance

1) No. She can be offshore when applying for sc 100
2) It is up to you inform DIBP any time you change address or other contact details as you are applying for a visa. If you do that DIBP will contact you (probably by email.)
3) Answered above.
4) Should not be a problem if you stay overseas.
5) She has to stay in Australia for 4 years (at least one as PR) in order to be eligible for citizenship.

Hi all,
My husband has a PR in Australia that he's been granted in May 2016, we got married in August 2016 because we were waiting for a decision to be made for his visa. Anyways, when he applied he did so as a single applicant but he did mention that he was engaged , the reason was he did not know that we can apply for a partner visa because we were not married at the time, so I was not legally "his partner".
I am doing my 309 application now and finished my 47SP form waiting to submit it; so that he can submit his 40SP with my TRN but I am having a bit of trouble with the statutory declaration part, it says that it should be completed by 2 Australian citizens or residents who should know the applicant (me) and I dont know anybody from there but my husband does. I don't think that any of my husband's friends can do it without knowing me personally and if that's the case then what should I do?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

They don't have to have met you in person the stat dec can be done on the basis on how your husband talks about you etc.
