That's very interesting to hear. May I ask what year you submitted your application? I'm wondering if there is still the possibility of getting such fast processing times now. Thanks!

We submitted our application in February of this year and received our grant in March.

Wow, that's incredible. May I ask one more question as you have recently gone through this process?

How long were your Relationship statements? I could write sooo much in mine - I mean it could easily be five A4 pages. But I'm wondering if they would prefer that it's a bit more short and concise rather than elaborate and fluffy... What do you reckon?

Thanks heaps! It's such a big help to be able to ask others that have gone through this process for advice.

Mine was about 5 pages. It was very detailed and thorough.

For example, for anything in my statement that had corresponding evidence uploaded I would write something like "as seen in..." to link it all together. Did I need to do that? Probably not, but I felt more comfortable doing that.

That said, my wife did her statement on a page and a half. So really it's up to you and your partner. They have to be your statements in your own words, more or less.

There's some merit to that thought. Other users here, some very well informed, have said that they used the boxes provided on the online application with the thought being that your statement shouldn't be a short story, but fit nicely into the word limit in the box provided. As I said, we typed ours up and in the box asking for the history of the relationship wrote "please see supporting evidence 'relationship_applicant' uploaded in 'evidence name'."

Thank you so much for your answer! This is very helpful information. I think my statement will be very detailed and ~5 pages long, and my partner's (the sponsor) a bit shorter. They are probably going to be pretty similar though, but I suppose it's useful for the CO to read the statements from our individual perspectives.

Thank you for informing me of this - I didn't realise there are two options for doing this. I think we will follow your example and stick to uploading the statements separately.

Thanks again for answering my questions - you've helped me feel a bit more confident in all of this.

As far as I know or have been made aware, statements regarding the history and development of the relationship are needed from both the applicant and sponsor. How you do them is up to you. In the boxes provided or a word document.

As I said, we did the word document. I was told this "tell the story of your relationship in your own words".

The online narrative boxes are the statement. Alternatively you can write your own.

It is my belief that immigration intentionally made those boxes limited to 2000 characters for good reason... to keep people from rambling on forever about insignificant information. Both me and my sponsor who had a 10 year history at time of application were able to answer each of those questions thoroughly within the boxes. It's all about quality over quantity.

That being said, some people choose to write the statement separately. Those 5 questions within the app need to be addressed in that statement and I have seen many RMAs recommend it only be 1-2 pages long. Remember that somebody needs to read it and they don't want to read an essay.

Hi,

I know this is a bit old, but I just wanted to know if you ever lodged a separate sponsor application, or was uploading the sponsor documents under the applicant's accounts sufficient? Thanks!

If you're doing a partner visa application, the sponsor needs to do the sponsor application as well. If you're at stage two, then no the sponsor does not do another application form, just the sponsor stat dec.

The thing is, we filled out, scanned and uploaded Form 40sp under my wife's (applicant) account already. I'm wondering if I should still go ahead and create a sponsor application?
