No worries mate. Have you lodged a 485 subsequent entrant as well or just waiting for you 190 to be granted? If you don't mind, could you please tell me you/your de facto are onshore or offshore? Also, what type of documents did you include in the application as the evidence of relationship?

Cheers

OMG, 3rd of October!!! Have they contacted you after a month and asked for the Medical? or you just did it yourself? When have you got the acknowledgement of the lodgement?
Your visa should be granted soon

I'm on a 485 at the moment, onshore, and waiting for my 190 to be granted. We were at one point considering the 485 subsequent entrant visa - but decided to hold off since my partner is already onshore on a substantive visa anyway.

We are onshore.

About 48 documents (many of them listed below were merged PDFs), specifically the relationship evidence was:

Statutory declaration from each of us (about 7 pages each) describing the development of our relationship, financial commitments, nature of our household, social aspects of our relationship, and our commitment to each other - we referenced multiple times evidence we would be attaching. The MARA agent I used has a useful guide to follow here: https://www.myaccessaustralia.com/pa...y-declaration/

Our relationship registration certificate (as we are de facto less than 12 months).

Joint lease agreement.

Rental bonds office receipt and email addressed to both of us.

Joint account statements (regular savings, utilities, insurance deducted).

Joint utilities account (electricity, gas, internet).

We don't use our joint account for day-to-day spending, so we attached a cover sheet (Excel) detailing purchases (e.g. groceries, social activities etc.) and corresponding personal bank statements to show the purchases / transfer of monies in some cases, original receipts (e.g. for white goods / furniture / household items etc.)

Joint insurance (home contents, car).

Joint ownership of vehicles.

Each of our driving licenses listing our home address.

Each of us listed as "spouse" and emergency contact at work.

Each of us listed as the others binding death beneficiary for our Superannuation (provident fund / retirement fund).

Joint Flybuys account (Supermarket rewards scheme).

Joint emails to both of us (e.g. from our rental agency).

About 15 photos - each with a blurb: we pasted the picture in a Word Doc, then added an explanation of who took the photo, where it is, who is in it, the significance to us - then converted that word doc into a PDF. Combined all the photos together. The photos were a range of just us as a couple, with our respective families, and friends.

WhatsApp summary page for each of us (showing number of messages sent / photos / videos).

Itemised phone statements for each of us (showing daily contact with each other before we were living together).

All the electronic tickets of social activities we could get our hands on e.g. movie bookings, dinner reservations, theatre plays / recitals.

Each month we upload our joint bank account statement and any purchases we have made together, e.g. summer holiday bookings, new tires for our car etc.

We had the advice and assistance of a MARA agent (link above).

Thanks a lot for the explanation. I think that you have gone above & beyond in providing evidence which will reduce the processing time. Wish you a good luck.

I know it is too much to ask but I was wondering what are the other documents that you have uploaded in your application.

Cheers

Not at all too much to ask - that is what a forum is for

What I listed was pretty much all our relationship evidence.

Other evidence was:

Police clearance certificates for each of us (meeting DHA requirements).

Medical examinations for our visa subclass.

Identity documents for each of us: Birth certificates (NAATI translated where necessary), Passports, Identity cards.
