Smile De facto in Saudi

Hello all!
Me and my boyfriend met and lived together in saudi since 2012. He left for Australia a year ago (March 2016). Now, we have decided to start processing for partner visa (de facto relationship) since we haven't decided if we will/when we are getting married. But we don't know if we are eligible for such as it's hard to prove our case especially we were in saudi (no joint account,no property under both our names,etc). We live together on weekends, if he has projects in the city where I live (last a month or more), holidays, we went together for vacation once and he was my sponsor when I visited him last march 2017.
Can someone give us some insights? Thank you. It will be greatly appreciated.

Staying at a house occasionally/weekend wouldn't really constitute living together.

As far as evidence goes, lease, bills, mail would all prove an address. Financial transactions between yours and his account perhaps.

I suggest you either contact a MARA registered migration agent or have a good read of and ensure you can compile an adaqute application by yourselves.

As it is illegal to live together while unmarried in Saudi Arabia, that should be taken into consideration by DIBP. A lot of couples don't or can't live together prior to marriage to due religious views or legal reasons.

As Mania suggested, I would recommend that you seek the advice of a registered migration agent. They can best advise you on how to approach your application.
