Partner visa application

My boyfriend is from the UK and had his substantive visa cancelled last week. I am Australian and we want to try and apply for a partner visa, but have only been together four months!?! We also only just moved in together. He is on a Bridging visa E with no work rights. Is it worth applying for a partner visa while he is here or wait until he has to go back to the UK?

It is almost certainly best to apply from offshore. Depending on the reason/s for the visa cancellation there might be problems with this strategy. May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for a full assessment of your case?

If our application were accepted, would he be put on a different Bridging visa? He doesn't have long on this BVE...

The best option would be the offshore application as mentioned. Four months is a little too little. Plus you need heaps of evidence. So maybe do the basics like open a joint account. I'm sure the lease and bills are in both your names...take photos especially with friends and family. They will come in handy during the application.

But for now. See an Agent for proper advice. Though you have a better short doing it offshore.

Thank you, I'm sure you're right. If we were to lodge the application onshore (we really don't want to have to be separated), are the processing times quicker because he is unlawful? I heard a partner visa application can take 12-18 months, but is that the same if applicant has unlawful status with only 28 days....??

If the applicant does not hold a substantive visa, even if a valid partner visa application can be lodged onshore, in most cases a visa is likely to be refused.

You have no other choice but to be separated again, unless you go to the UK with him.

Your relatinonship is too short for an onshort visa, forget about it.

Also we would be able to help you more if you tell us why his visa was cancelled.

You do know the partner visa is almost 10k all up for a guy you've been together for 4 months? plus the website clearly states you need to be in a relationship for at least 1 year.

It doesn't make processing faster if he is unlawful, if anything the application is more likely to be rejected.
