Thanks for your answers.
What about if we decide to apply later on, like in a year? Will they still consider the proof accurate? I will still continue to visit my partner in Australia inbetween.

All the proof you can get for the entire relationship is useful. Witness statements need to be recent if applying onshore (less than 6 weeks, see form 888) The rest of the evidence just helps strengthen your case. Going for de facto if you are not consistently living together will fail IMHO if you can't prove that you had a great reason for being apart. Go for the PMV sc300 instead.

Hi again,

I just realized that I will get refused as a visitor in Australia since I just spent 24 months there?

Regards,
Celine

Any answers? How long would I have to wait if I wanted to get a tourist visa?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Celine -

There's no specific rule that I know of regarding how DIAC interprets a string of temporary visitor visas (working holiday, visitor) when it assesses whether that string of visits goes beyond the scope of a temporary visit. My guess would be that if 12 months went by without any visits to Australia, your chances of a visitor visa would be considerably better. Given this, the subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa, as suggested before, might be a good choice, and it's very likely that it would be processed in less than 12 months - could be just a few months or upwards of a year depending on the country and other factors.

Thank you so much. I know the pmv would be the solution but since I ve been back home, I'd rather go back there as a simple visitor before making any decisions.

Thanks again for your help

Hi Celine -

Glad to help. Trying to work out Australia's visa system and how that fits in with a developing relationship can be very difficult - relationships can be so fluid and changing, and the visa system here can seem restrictive.

Let me know if I can assist any further, and good luck!

That doesn't sound like you two are serious enough to want to spend your lives together.... That is exactly what you have to prove to immigration and if you are not sure then they will not be sure. I agree with Mark that it is a big step and I do wonder sometimes about the people who say they want to be de facto because they aren't ready to marry but de facto is a common law marriage so in effect so they are married in a sense, well at least that is what they are trying to prove to immigration. My husband and I just wanted to be married, no question of de facto, as if you are going to change countries and be together there wasn't any question to it, we wanted to marry from almost when we met. If he didn't want to be with me and love me unconditionally he wouldn't have paid for all my cats to come with me He is the best!
