Call Records FaceTime

Hi all, I'm in the process of putting together my PMV 300 visa application, although I won't be applying until I finish my masters degree later this year.

I had a question for anyone whose done the same, and what you did for phone records. My partner and I speak twice a day via FaceTime, but there isn't (to my knowledge) a good way to get detailed call records.

Since we won't be applying for at least 6 (realistically closer to 8) months would it be worth switching to Skype which does provide detailed call records and including what we can from the past 8 months (since I left Australia to come to Europe)?

Also, for document upload (which I know, I know, I'm not dealing with for a while yet) are PDFs an acceptable format?

We didn't even bother with proving that we talked via social media but we had a lot of evidence (knew each other for ten years at the time of app, had tons of visits in person, etc). But yes, it is common to upload that proof of comms as evidence so switching to Skype now would be a good idea.

Everything I uploaded was pdf and that is the preferred format.

Anything that gives you recorded evidence is better then something that doesn't. I would switch.

I know that my Telstra phone plan gives me free international calls, I can get detailed phone records that display the number called the date time and duration - may be worth checking if yours does the same?

Information on uploads here - Attach documents to an online application

PDF is fine.


>_< miles ahead of me sky blue lol!

Thanks! I'll sort out our Skype accounts tonight.


By the time we apply we will have been together for two years, and we lived together for about 9 months before I left, have a joint bank account, he came to Europe to visit me, I'm hoping to get back to Australia at least once before we apply so I think our evidence will be pretty solid, this is just the one area I was a bit iffy on.

Would working toward a de facto visa not be better if you are applying in 6-8 months? You don't need to live together for 12 months only be in a relationship for 12 months.

I don't recommend it for marginal 12 month relationships, but 2 years with good evidence building over next 6 months and old joint bank account is not marginal.

Well we lived together for 9 months in Australia (Oct 2015-June 2016) when I was on my 2nd WHV but I then left to pursue my masters in Europe and we aren't living together now so I think we'd have a harder time meeting the de facto criteria versus a PMV.

So with my understanding of everything I think a PMV is our best choice, that being said we are going to talk to a migration agent for a professional opinion while I'm in Australia in June.
