Actually, if you apply onshore, you may be either in or out of Australia when the visa is granted. I tried to find a link to where I read this, but the immi.gov.au site seems to be down for me.

Yes, you can, but when I asked about this, I was told it's best to apply offshore because you aren't actually coming into the country as a tourist. You intend to apply to stay permanently and technically, that's lying on a visa.

I have applied for a partner visa a couple of days ago - here are the details!

I am Austrian
my partner australian

applied on 16/2/2012
first contact of CO 20/2/2012
medical test 20/2/2012
police check not yet requested

I have been in Australia for the last two years on a 457 visa and met my partner there.
we spent Christmas with my family in Austria and he went back to Australia to start work again!

can ANYBODY tell me how long it will take till I can go to Australia to be back together with my boy??? the embassy in Austria told me that it will be between 5 and 6 months!! our application map was about 5 cm thick we gave them everything!!

can anybody cheer me up???
I highly suggest getting started on your police clearances. They are required for all partner visas from what I've been told. That way you'll be ahead of the game. Also, I would submit a completed Form 80 because while they may not need it, if they do, that will delay things even longer. Good luck!

absolutely agree with Vyktoria on police check and form 80. It may have worked for us.

Please update your flag here .

I did fill out the form 80! the gentleman at the embassy told me to wait with the police check as I lived in Australia for the last two years!

the only places where I lived longer than 12 months are Australia and Austria!
do you think I should send them the Austrian police check anyway!

I'm sure they can find out any crimes from Australia themselves?!

can I just email them the police check??

and does anybody know how I can get a police check from Australia??can my partner get it if he is in Sydney at the moment??

thanks for your help!!!

The application form needs to be signed by you so best you download it and complete it, attach I'd documents and send it yourself. By the time you send it all to your boyfriend you might as well send it directly to AFP.... Unless they will accept a copy of your application in which case you can complete it all, sign it and email it to your boyfriend, he can attach the fee and send from here.

I can't attach links from my phone so go to google, search for AFP check and click in the government link. It will tell you all that's required for the AFP check.

From my understanding, you cannot email the police check as an attachement because it needs to be the original thing.

I sent my application with everything including form 80,my medicals and police checks from both Kenya and Germany where I reside. Unfortunately, I havent been told anything about a case officer. I keep checking my mail every 2 minutes
