So good to finally hear some good news!!! I'm in San Diego right now, moving to New york in March. We've only applied Aug 5th. Just wondering if I should get medical and character checks done before i move as it would be easier. Would have to travel a bit to get medical in New York.

I guess just weigh up the pros and cons. There's no way to tell when you're visa is going to come. It could be 10 months, could be 16. Either way theres a possibility it might expire.

I would rather chance it expire than chance them having to request it and take even longer. You I'm not fooling my self into thinking it's going to be anytime sooner than 12 months.... but hey.. one can hope huh!

Well ours was 10 months so you really never know. I was preparing for it to be the full 16 months. The processing times are global so it could be literally anytime. Makes wedding planning really hard. Hang in there though! The day will come and it will be the best freakin day ever!

In my experience, de facto relationships are more norm to Aussie culture than marriage. It's not uncommon in the places I've lived to see couples that have been together for 5, 7, 10, 15+ years with multiple children and unmarried.
Absolutely. However, from the posts in the Facebook partner visa groups, it’s kind of shocking to how many people push their luck with this.

There are many couples who have been together for ~3 months, registering their relationships DeFacto to get “more time” on their WHV, and slowing it down for seriously committed couples. It’s incredibly frustrating, to say the least.

True, but that should be a dislike of the process that allows that. I'd be far more frustrated at the number of fraudulent applicants faking their way through the system. If anything, they're probably more so the reason for the long processing times. Not only do they add to the queue, but it's probably the reason applications are more scrutinized. It also wouldn't surprise me if the process was intentionally drawn out... relationships that aren't serious would probably fizzle out and fraudulent applicants are more likely to make a mistake or get caught. There's also the worst kind of people: the ones who pretend to fall in love with Aussies but know damn well they're lying to them just to get a visa and have no remorse for breaking some poor Aussie's heart once they do.

I had wondered about that. I also wondered if how long you had been together was also a factor but it doesn't seem like it? At least not for 309 & 820 visas.

Good point. I think it’s just really infuriating to see couples who prematurely file - the visa is for serious couples, not casually dating couples after a matter of months. Just have to not stress it (and ignore the insanity of the Facebook groups!)
