From my side i did not send any papers only he requested my name and address how can i know if its fibes or if he made my application without my papers!

Thats confused im waiting my papers and he said that we should wait approval from immigration


Any suggestion can i do to be more sure plz help cz waiting is confused
--I hope and pray that your migration agent / lawyer is doing the process correctly for you and be transparent with whatever they are doing. As per what CCMS (reputable migration agent) has stated in his comments, ampk and Sky - those are the correct procedure and process for partner visa. Good luck

I have a feeling it's more of a misunderstanding or miscommunication somewhere.

Are you dealing with an Australian Registered Migration Agent? If not, they could be telling you anything they want.

A short update on our experience.

We submitted our application in the last few days. It was as others have said, there have been no changes in terms of extra steps for sponsors to be verified.

The online application is filled out, the fee is paid (good advice by skybluebrewer to pay by credit card, which was instant) then the supporting evidence can be uploaded.

The bridging visa grant letter was sent to us immediately upon payment (even before we uploaded all the supporting documentation).

Hopefully that helps anyone who was worried (as we were...)

Just checking what is the Credit Card surcharge these days?

Thought Malcolm put it to a amount reasonable to the cost of using the service - that varies lots. Coles and Woolies don't pay anything to most if not all credit card providers, I expect the government has or could have the same terms.

Interesting thread.

I had an email from my migration agent saying that the change (to requiring the sponsor's application first) was to be debated in the Senate on the 19th of September, but apparently they didn't make it far enough through their agenda to get to it, so no changes were made.

So this is still true (no change) if Jimmy38's application was only made a few days ago!

The potential for it to be debated in parliament and altered at any time (no idea exactly what form, or what transition period if any, they will settle on) has me nervous. Just hoping I get my application in before anything changes. (Same situation as one above, my current visa expires in December so I need my BVA by then!)

Anyone know when it is up for debate again, and how many times this might happen before they are likely to finally get to it?

Ask the Domestic Violence advocates - they will have the best idea of the Senate position on this.

The surcharge for VISA was $94.51, so it was $7,254.51 total.


Gingersnap - we were also very nervous that the situation would change. I can confirm that as of a few days ago it was definitely all fine. Bridging Visa notice was emailed to us immediately, even without uploading a single document.

As many on this forum have said, you really need to collate all your documents before you submit the first part of your application. However, if you have most of your documents ready (well, enough so that you can write the text for the first part of your application), you could submit your application and pay the money so your bridging visa is issued. From there you can take your time pulling together some of the evidence you need.

Hopefully that makes sense. Had we thought it through, we could have submitted ours a week earlier than we did as we were holding out for stat decs from family, which we now realise we could have submitted later.
