Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you to be "accelerated" straight to PR! Do you think being married helped in that? At the moment I've applied as de-facto partner, but marriage is on the cards..

Hi missjaay, thank you!! PR isn't linked to marriage, but marriage certainly played a very significant part in my application in order for me to qualify for the partner visa I couldn't apply for de facto because I haven't been living with my partner for at the minimum 12 months.

I believe my CO gave me PR because I showed evidence that I have a good solid relationship starting back in 2007, which means a good long 5 years...

From my understanding PR is granted when a couple has been together for a long time. I thought this only applied to couples being married for a long time but I suppose my CO has been convinced by my paperwork that mine is a genuine and continuing relationship

Hi Miss Swan, if you don't mind me asking, what sort of evidence did you provide with your visa?

I'm planning on sending mine off soon but struggled with the evidence part despite my husband and I being together for 7 years. We've provided evidence of joint travel, joint bank account, living arrangements (lease), and have a few stellar Form 888s filled out by friends/family. I guess I'm just worried that it isn't enough! We met in person 5 years ago but we've spent more time apart than together, only seeing each other once or twice a year until last June when I arrived in Australia on a work and holiday visa. (I wish I could just link them to our "friendship" on Facebook!)

Hi Inkhearted, this is what I provided.

1. Application Document Checklist

2. The Applicant:
Form 47SP - Application for Migration to Australia by a Partner
Certified copy of passport
Certified copy of birth certificate
Four recent passport photos

3. The Applicant's Character Documents:
Form 80
Police checks

4. The Sponsor:
Form 40SP Ė Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia
Certified copy of passport
Four recent passport photos
Sponsorís Carer statements from Centrelink
Sponsorís employment contract


5. History of our Relationship
Witnessed statement prepared by Applicant
Witnessed statement prepared by Sponsor

6. Details of Our Wedding
Applicantís Facebook announcement on the engagement
Sponsorís Facebook announcement on the engagement
Certified copy of marriage certificate
Wedding photos

7. Financial Aspects of Relationship
Statement of joint bank account
Statements showing bank transfers from Applicant to Sponsor
Statements showing bank transfers from Sponsor to Applicant

8. Nature of The Household
Copy of house deed showing that the house is owned by Sponsorís mum (hence no mortgage or rent)
Correspondence addressed to both the Applicant and Sponsor at the same address

9. Social Context of The Relationship
Form 888 - Statutory Declarations by family and friends
Photos
Joint travel

10. Nature of Commitment To Each Other
Emails between Applicant and Sponsor from Dec 2007 to May 2012)
Monthly MSN chat history between Applicant and Sponsor from Dec 2007 to May 2012)
Itemised mobile phone bills of Applicant (Sponsor uses prepaid card and has no mobile bills)

11. Proof of Applicantís Ability to Support Self and Employability
Applicantís bank statement
Applicantís income tax statement
Applicantís employment contracts

Like your case, we spent a lot of time apart before we finally got married. What substantiated our relationship (I think) were solid evidence that we maintained regular contact. MSN + Skype conversations, as well as my monthly mobile bills, together with air tickets proving the desire to see each other each year. Your case sounds very similar to mine! I believe what you have should be sufficient, if not more than mine! The WHV will help your application substantially as well.

All the best!
