Hi Daisy,

Me and partner had similar situation, no official rent agreement on both our names, so we used other thing to prove that we had lived at the same place.

Bank/Credit card transactions showing that we used ATM near place we lived.
Credit card transactions showing that our groceries mostly were near place we lived.
Mail from bank and etc., Ebay purchases, Birthday cards from relatives.
Bookin/Airbnb list with the name of second guest.

Hope this is gonna help, you might have other evidence as well.

Our visa was approved in 2.5 months.

I noticed you applied for the PMV. That does not have the same requirements as a partner visa.

Have you done the 820 now ?

2.5 months is fast. What is your timeline and where from?

For the 820 you would need much more than just those two pieces, to show the length of your relationship. The bank one might be too recent.

Do you have other proofs of your relationship? Travel together etc?

I applied for offshore partner visa (309) in April 2019, from Israel.
Still have time for 820

Over recent years THEY have increasingly been asking for the level of evidence in 300 applications that was previously required for partner applications.

A bit of confusion, the PMV is the 300 (Prospective Marriage visa), normally followed by the 820 after they get married, and then the 801.

You will be doing the 100 after the 309.

Wow. At one time, one of the requirements for the PMV was that the sponsor and applicant must have met in person, at least once.
A 2 week holiday together, with some internet contact, was enough.

A bit different to the Partner visa requirement.

I guess they are pushing for more Partner visas than PMV's now.

But even if I believe you, it does not help writing 'not a chance'. I understand your frustration but not all applicants are the same.

When I applied for eVisitor, I stated that I will stay with my boyfriend. He also sent an email to the immigration, stating I will stay at his house. I have a letter that says I am an occupant on this address. All my mail is mailed to this address, from Health Insurance, bank details, to our registered relationship certificate. My partner is informing Centrelink that I live with him. What else can we do to ensure we have enough proof that I live here? Maybe utility bills on both of our names?

Your help with this question would be appreciated as it's hard gathering evidence when most of our relationship was long distance. We want to do our best to prove that our relationship is genuine, because it is. And if something goes wrong, we always have a much easier plan B, he can come with me to Ireland

Thank you very much for this information. We will get birthday and christmas cards on this address from family, and lots of other mail. Using ATM close to home is a great idea, but we shop kind of far from home because there are only small expensive shops near our house.

I think he may have replied to your question (I am wondering if these two pieces of evidence are enough?.)

But you seem to have a bit more than just those two pieces of evidence.

Having your name on his Centrelink records is a definite extra advantage. Not having it would actually be a negative.

When we did ours, we applied for Flybuy cards on the one account, and sent a screen shot of the account with both names, together with a photo of both cards highlighting consecutive member numbers.
