Yes and after the visa is refused, you can get the refusal overturned at the AAT a few years later...

It leads to situations like this for a sc. 300 application

Although I accept that as an unmarried couple in XYZ country you can not live together, I do not accept that living in hotels constitutes a joint household...

Or this in the same refusal letter:

While you do not have combined your financial matters to any great extent, I do note the financial support provided by the sponsor and consider the financial requirements to be met....

Note: the actual wording has been changed for the sake of clarity and anonymity.

The application was managed by a RMA who did not do much wrong, but would have been well advised to have reviewed some of the written submissions before lodging them and who now offers to assist for no charge. There is (or was) a no visa - no fee (for selected visas) on this agent's website. It appears that subclass 300 is not one of the selected visas.

It been said earlier that if we get married under the processing time for a 300 visa, I get transferred to a 309 (overseas partner visa). Will I get “to the back of the line” for 309 visas then, I.e I could end up with a much longer processing times if this happens? (Not unrealistic as we are planing to marry in April )

Also, would registering as a de-facto partner I NSW affect this in any way?

You wouldn’t go back in the queue, because it is not a new application as such, but you would be assessed against the requirements of the sc. 309 visa.

Thanks again for your input Nick.

And I then guess I would be stuck without a work permit until that is processed...? Is the processing times roughly equal on the 300 and 309, i.e. would this change the processing time at all for my application? If only they had a fixed time for the 300 processing time....

It is impossible to say anything sensible about processing times, as it would be pure speculation. In my experience, sc. 300 visas tend to be processed faster than sc. 309 visas.

If you are in Australia while an offshore partner visa is being processed, you would need another visa with work rights, if you wanted to be able to work. I assume a WHV is not an option for you (sorry, no time to look through the entire thread again).

Hi Nick,

No, 35 years old, så no WHV for me. Because of that it will be difficult to rack up 80+ points for a 189/190 visa as well. The only work- "approach" would be a direct entry stream sponsorship (not impossible), but they list just as long processing times as the 300 visa....

In the end, it is basically a process of elimination. Once you have come to a conclusion about the best available option, you can just focus on that and get on with it.
