820 Onshore Application

Hi everyone. Hoping someone can assist me with some pointers.

I am from london and my partner is originally also from the UK, but it also an Australian citizen.

We met in 2017 in an office in Sydney, we became BF & GF. 7 months later I then had to move with work to the Auckland for work. We continued our relationship and would see each other in person at least once a month.

In April this year I decided to take some time off work, return to Sydney and engage in a 6 month post grad course. At the time of visa application we had never lived together and were not therefore defacto or married and the plan was to spend the 6 months together in Sydney and return together to the UK (purely for ease).

However on our return we have realised we can register our relationship and therefore waive the 12 months of having to have lived together, which is great.

However my concern is if we apply for an 820, immi May look @ my precious student application where I noted my plan was to return to london, as I own my own flat there etc (and tbh it would be easer) but Jess is REALLY keen to stay in Aus. For clarity the disclosures I made on my student visa at the time were factually accurate at that time, to my understanding of “defacto” and in terms of my future plans of returning to london.

Any pointers for anyone who has had a similar situation would be SO SO appreciated

Thanks Alan

You do not have to be living together to be in a de facto relationship.

If you did not declare a de facto relationship in a recent visa application, you have to be careful about what you now claim.

Registering your relationship is far from enough to satisfy all the criteria for a partner visa.

It might pay you to consult a registered migration agent for advice about strategy.
