applying for visa 820

Hi there, im a Scottish citizen and will be applying for the partner visa 820 as my NZ partner is now classed as a protected SCV holder. We bought and have been living in a motorhome with our baby daughter for 2 months and dont have much evidence regarding utility bills. We do have the receipt and insurance with joint names but that's about it. Can anyone advise any other documents we could use? My partner has just started a new job after travelling for 2 months.

We have just returned back to Oz after living in Scotland for 3 years.
We have a correspondence address.

I would be grateful for any help.

Not sure what a “ protected” SCV is .

As the holder of a sc. 444 visa (SCV) you partner cannot sponsor you for a sc. 820 visa. He would need to be an Australian citizen, permanent resident or Eligible NZ citizen.

What visa are you on now?

Hi there, We both paid for bills but all in my name. We have council tax bills which includes water in joint names but that's the only one. We have a joint bank account. Oh the TV licence was in my partners name.

HI Nick, I was on a 461 visa which expired 3 days ago and am on a bridging visa. I re applied for another 461 visa in Sept only to be told 3 days ago that changes were made in 2017 regarding my partners status and I can not apply under 461. I was informed by immi that my partner is no longer a scv holder (444) but a protected SCV holder, which means he is now classed as a permanent resident of Australia. Although we are not 100%, we are waiting on a reply from IMMI regarding this.

Eligible New Zealand citizen
You are an eligible New Zealand citizen, or protected SCV holder, if you:

were in Australia on 26 February 2001 on a SCV
spent at least 12 months in Australia on a SCV in the 2 years immediately before 26 February 2001, or
have a Centrelink certificate from before 26 February 2004 that shows you were living in Australia
If you are an eligible New Zealand citizen, you can apply for citizenship (by conferral). You do not need to become a permanent resident first. You can also sponsor family members.

Don't rely on IMMI you need a Registered Migration Agent such as CCMS.

Being on a Bridging Visa maybe a very big problem.

Can you give me more information pplease? The bridging visa gives me the same rights as my previous visa 461 but yes I only have 28 days to apply for 820 once I withdraw my 461 application.

You may need to comply with Schedule 3 being on the Bridging Visa, I don't remember enough to comment more about it.

Thanks for the clarification. As an ENZ citizen, your partner can sponsor you for a sc. 820 visa. Being on a bridging visa means that you may have to meet additional schedule 3 requirements or obtain a waiver.

Well that sucks, my suspicion confirmed!

I don't recommend a DIY Schedule 3 or the waiver application - it's tough.
