309 advice appreciated

Hi everyone! Newbie to the forum here. Currently in Oz and going home to the UK this evening, will be looking at applying for an offshore 309 partner visa as soon as possible.

As my hubby/sponsor and I have a child (dual citizen) together I would like to have everything in place as soon as possible. What documents need to be uploaded before the application is actually submitted? Or do you fill in your details, pay, and then start uploading everything? And how long after applying do you have to upload your supporting documents?

Thanks in advance and sorry for all the questions <3 This is just nerve-wracking

You fill in details, pay and then start uploading. There's no 'deadline' for uploading but in theory a decision can be made any time.

I personally prepared all my docs using the checklists and then filled in details, paid and uploaded within 24 hours. I'd suggest preparing all your docs first - then you have the 'luxury' of triple checking, waiting for docs you need to request to arrive etc., and when you are sure you have everything, submitting and paying - much less stressful that way

Ah fabulous &#x1f642; Thank you! So is it only the police/medical checks that actually expire? Like... once statutory declarations are done they don't need to be done again?

FYI, don't include the kid as an additional applicant if they have an Aussie passport as they don't need the partner visa. Seems like a simple thing to mention but people make the mistake!

Form 888s should be recent. Personal statements are included in the online applications for both applicant and sponsor. You can upload documents until either 1) you run out of upload space (don't do this.) or 2) a decision is made on the application. Best to get all your docs uploaded within a week or so as they can look at your app at any time. Not having docs could result in refusal or delay the process. I've had two of my partner visas granted within weeks of doing the online application so don't wait too long! It's not common but it can happen.
