Partner Visa 2nd Stage

Hi,

We applied for the Partner Visa subclass 309 in August 2017 and it was granted in January 2018, so they should be contacting us for the second stage (permanent partner visa subclass 100) in August this year as that will be 2 years since we applied.

I am just wondering what sort of information we will need to supply this time around?

Do we need to go through and get facebook photos, police checks, health checks and all that stuff again?

I hope she doesn't need to fly all the way back to Slovakia and get a police check from them again, that would be very annoying.

Regards,
Daniel

Health check for PR was already completed.

Police checks are only if you need any new ones that weren't supplied for Stage 1. For example, if your partner didn't supply an AFP NPC for Stage 1 because it wasn't required (i.e., didn't spend more than 12 months in Australia in the previous 10 years), but has now spent more than 12 months in Australia in the last 10 years, then she'd need the AFP NPC because it hadn't been supplied previously.

Updated form 888s, all the identity docs, and evidences since the grant of the 309.

You can find detailed information on the Department website. Apart from new statements , you should provide updated relationship evidence from the date of the 309 grant onwards. Don’t treat it lightly.

Not sure that Facebook photos are vital.

We didn't have any facebook photos.

Proof of being/living together since getting the first grant is of course a priority.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the response. Yes we will have loads of evidence since we were granted. We got married last year and also purchased a house, So hopefully we have no issues in getting the permanent residency visa 100.

Regards,
Daniel

We did ours about 3 months after eligibility. I've seen some that delayed even longer.

Oh ok great so it has no deadline for it to be completed? We will do ours asap just to be safe. The other thing i noticed it say was:

Provide an Australian police certificate if you didn't provide it for your temporary Partner visa.

We only accept complete disclosure National Police Certificates issued by the Australian Federal Police. We do not accept standard disclosure certificates or national police certificates issued by Australian state or territory police.

For immigration purposes, Australian police certificates are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

Also provide an overseas police certificate from every country, including your home country, where you spent a total of 12 months or more in the last 10 years since you turned 16.


She sent them the UK and Slovakian police check in stage 1 and she hasn't lived there since, so does she only need to do the Australian police check or does she also need to get another Slovakian and UK police check? ( she is Slovakian and lived in the UK when we applied for stage 1]

My wife didn't do another Police check from her country, for the stage 2. She had been in Australia since the onshore stage 1 application, other than a 2 week holiday overseas..

I am not sure what happens when it is for the offshore stage 1. It might depend on how long the person lived in that country after the Police check was issued?

Ah ok,

My partner called the Slovak Embassy and the Australian department home affairs and they both said she needs to do the police check in both the UK and Slovakia even though she hasn't been living in Those countries since we did them for stage 1 of the partner visa. Its a bit annoying especially the Slovak one as we need to go to Brisbane to sort that one out and post it off.

One question I do have regarding my partners name for stage 2. We have been married since October 2018 and her name since then has change to my last name. But her passport and Visa is still her maiden name. Do we continue to fill forms out using her maiden name as in her passport? and will all the documents like bank statements our house mortgage etc.... that is in her married changed name be ok to attach as long as we include the married certificate it will be ok?

Regards,
Daniel
