I believe the OP is trying to help, but charging for it doesn't seem appropriate as there are hundreds of threads on these forums detailing ways to lodge an application successfully, not to mention the RMA's who frequent these parts and often offer free advice.


For what it's worth, our application was approved and our visa was granted in 36 days and we didn't pay a cent to anyone. We used this forum and a few blogs as a guideline and created our own unique, decision ready application.

This statement is incorrect for several reasons. There is a reason why unqualified people should not provide migration advice. By all means share your personal experience, but having one visa approved for yourself does not make you an expert and does not put you in a position where you can advise others, whose circumstances most likely are totally different to yours.

Trying to make money out of sharing your application could well be considered providing paid migration advice. I repeat that I personally find this both highly unresponsible and unethical.

If I knew that someone living in Australia was operating such a website, I would not hesitate in reporting it, as it would be clearly illegal.

Skybluebrewer & Eh? - I appreciate your point and I apologise if I have offended you in anyway with my post. As mentioned I can only speak of our personal experience of putting together our application and what we found useful.

CCMS - It was a general statement in response to a general question. I assume Emily was not looking for an essay length answer, also you will notice the link to the Aus Gov't website with more detail.

It was quite a specific question, which really can't be answered without knowing all the details. Saying that you need to "live together" for at least 1 year to meet de-facto requirements is not correct.

I notice you are avoiding the other issue I have raised.

I wasn't avoiding the other comment. I simply didn't realise it warranted a response...

In that case I will simply refer your website to the relevant authorities, as it is my opinion that you are offering to illegally provide paid migration advice. I’ll be happy for them to decide if this is appropriate or not.

We found the process quite difficult and confusing at times as the government website is soo vague about what it wants. Oh and time consuming too!! We considered hiring a visa advisor to support us with the application as that is what so many people had advised, but they are SO expensive and it's costly enough for the application alone. So we did lots and lots of research and did it alone.

Thank you for sharing. This is great news! Big congrats!!! Itís so comforting to hear this. We have just lodged our 820/801 application last month. We are hoping some random luck is going to come to us so we donít need to wait for a long time!

We did the application ourselves too. We did consider to use a registered migration agent to do it for us but the fees were too high. It was quoted $2,700 per 820/801 application. We didnít want to spend $7,000 + $2,700 for the application. So we did a lot of research online, read posts in this forum and went through the Home Affairsí official site many times to try to understand the application requirements as much as we could.

We found the application part was relatively easy to complete. But it took some time to answer all the questions. The difficult point we came across was we werenít sure what level of details that we should include. Given the facts that we have been together for more than 12 years and got married back in 2010, there are so many legal documents and related materials that we can attach to the application to well represent our case. But we also found it a bit confusing the attachment part didnít appear till the application was submitted and the fees were paid. It was definitely a surprise for us the amount of documents in different categories were asked in the attachment section.

Very interested in your application. If you donít mind sharing it, would like to take a read.
