Thanks Sky. We did think about doing the ceremony as make believe lol. But I'd need to go home and come back at this point anyway due to the 90 day visa.... If we marry then apply as a 309 we'd need alot more evidence I don't think we have since our time together in one place has been limited to short term tourist visas...we have tons of combined expenses when together but I didn't think enough.

How long do you think it's acceptable to return after leaving on the first 90 day ETA? A few weeks? I can't seem to find any concrete info on that...

That's not an easy answer. I left 3 times and came back. I wasn't stopped until the 3rd time and told I wouldn't be able to come back again unless I had a different visa. I was honest each time, stating that I planned to apply for a 189 visa...though things happened and we ended up applying for the 820 visa instead. The first two times, I came into Perth. The third time, it was Sydney. So it's really hard to say.

Like LRR said, it's hard to say. It's not meant for long term use.

I received my Working Holiday (462) last week and I'll be moving over in 2 weeks. Does anyone have experience or advice for updating my account with this info? I don't really know where to declare I now have a visa, but I'll obviously update my contact info.

Hi all,
Update on our end - we received a request to provide further info (applied July 2017).
1. Birth Certificate for Applicant - we can't obtain this, any recommendations for what people have provided that's worked?
2. Birth Certificate for Sponsor (already attached in Sponsor application)
3. State Police Check (already attached and not expired - but told we needed to get a new one because it expired..when it only expires in Nov 2018)
4. FBI Check (as it expired) - does anyone know if we can get fingerprinted in Australia as we're currently visiting. We were hoping to get fingerprinted and send this to the approved partner Accurate Biometrics?

Also, for the files that have already been attached and aren't expired - how should we communicate this to our CO? Do we just re-attach?

Appreciate any help !

Thanks everyone!

Why can't you provide a birth certificate for the applicant? If you're from the US, then you can order one online from any state and get it fairly quickly. I had to get a new copy of mine and was able to do so quickly and easily. Not sure what you should do if you can't produce it, as it's a required document.

Yes, you can get fingerprinted here in Australia and send your FBI police check request to a channeler. Will still take a few weeks, but it's not difficult to do. As for the state police check, if they are requesting a new one, get a new one.

As for the submitted files, just a statement saying where they've been uploaded. Or, for peace of mind, attach them again making them clear.

How long did you stay away for each time? My plan was to fly from perth to Bali for a day and return! Stay away for 24 hours!

Went from Perth to Bali for 4 days each for 2 trips. The first trip was with my husband about 2 weeks before Christmas, the second was just me for my birthday. The third trip, I went to the US for 3 weeks with my husband for a vacation and to bring my sons to Australia to see if they'd like it. We flew in and out of Sydney. If it were me, I would NOT do a one day thing. It might set off a LOT of red flags, particularly with all the drug trafficking.

I went to NZ for a weekend, and it got me grilled and a denied entry upon attempting to return to Australia. From everything we’ve had to deal with since, I’d have stayed out of Australia for MUCH longer.
