I am applying offshore 309 partner visa not the defecto . And also every one is not same . I don’t have that much money to stay overseas for more than 2 months . All the long distance relationship has their own story . I have done research and all. All I asked is what to write on household as we are not living together. Rest of my application is fine . I have evidence like money transfer on regular base . Daily phone call record and chat history , family and friends 888 form. Legally married and have the certificate as well. Yes we recently married , but we are in relationship since July 2017. Met twice . What els? They need ? I am getting more confused from your comments . I will quit . Thank you . Why I have to withdraw ?

I am sorry to say this, Eugen, but you are not very polite. We are not duty bound to help you. I hope you understand that this is a forum of varied individuals from all over the world.
In answer to your question, the genuineness of the relationship is what is under scrutiny here. If a couple doesn't have enough solid evidence, they are under suspicion.
I am also in the same boat because we rarely socialise and dont do social media, plus our phones crashed deleting all our sms and data over one year period.
We are married and have lived together for a year, but still, our agent tells us we should look for the evidence from one year ago to appear more genuine and we were also asked by the CO for the evidence as well.

Now, it is upto you, how you want to take the above info.

Forget the department website for such information - and forget that there is a 12 month living together requirement THERE IS NOT.

Your relationship evidence is built over time and generally that requires living together for a period (shorter for some longer for others). If you have this evidence in under 1 year you would need to be married or have your relationship registered to apply for the 309 or you will not qualify. For the ones that have have been together for greater than 1 year applying with out evidence will result in a refusal.


This is regulation not sure if current but as you can clearly see " (ii) the length of time during which the persons have lived together;" is a factor.

Now you would need to refer to PAM 3 to see what policy the department currently have on this regulation point.

I have seen a bit of PAM 3 but none of the 309 section.

Based on the information you provided, the forum can't really help you and we would only look to poke more into your applications. We're not qualified enough to advise you what you should do next. You got to remember, most of us give advice/opinions based on experience.

Best thing to do now is consult an RMA and they can assess what's next best course of action. They may/may not save your application but at least you'll get it right the next time.
