Hi Mark!

Thank you for taking out time to answer questions.

My fiance moved to Australia for studies in Feb 2020 and her student visa expires in March 2020. I asked her to marry me after her move here. We had a long distance relationship and when she moved to Melbourne, I was in Tasmania finishing my course but was unable to visit her during holidays (as planned) due to covid related border closures. My course ended in July and finally in Dec I was able to go to Melbourne and stay with her after state borders opened. I am on her lease in Melbourne. We plan to get married in Jan 2021 and apply for the partner visa in Feb 2021. We have already registered our relationship with Births Deaths and marriages Gov. When I visited her in Dec we took a lot of pictures and hung out with friends. We dont have pics from before that. We have a joint account and I have been putting in money every month for her rent and living expenses since she moved to Melbourne. We are doing a registry style wedding as due to covid all my savings have been used up and I was on job keepers till Nov. I only have one friend in Melbourne as I am mostly on ship for work, and so does she, because she has been under lock down since she moved there. We will also not be able to move into our own place till May, hoping for a promotion and raise by then to be able to afford our own rental.

-I would like to know will not being able to meet her from Feb till Nov due to covid be counted as a negative thing in our situation?
-Do you think our case is strong or weak?
-Any advice on how to make our case stronger?
-Also, what are the timelines for getting the TR and PR these days.

Thank You,

Ali Masky

Hi Mark,
I am in England with my 5 year old daughter. My fiance is in Australia where he works as a fifo worker. He has duel citizenship for australia and UK. He was born in England but has been living in Australia for ten years.

We went to high school together and we began a long distance relationship and have been together for almost 2 years visiting each other. My daughter calls him daddy andbhe classes her as his daughter. Covid and the travel ban has been a nightmare for us. We class ourselves as family but had to apply for 300 visa as we did not have evidence for partner visa.
We are three months into our wait now. The time apart us terrible. Is there anything we can do to be together? Are they currently processing my visa type from the UK at the moment. I am hoping once its granted to apply for exsemption. We have wills in each others names im named on his pension and life insurance and we transfer money to each other send gifts video call daily.

I am aware that he can apply to leave to the UK for 3 months or longer but we are in the process of having our home built in Oz and that would mean him taking alot of time off work to be with us. He is planning to do this once hes saved uo enough money hooefully March but this is a huge financial strain on us as a family.

We are at a bit of a loss and the wait time is unclear. Are you able to give and help/ guidence on how we can be together? Or how long wevare likely to wait for this visa and ifbgranted our chances on an exsemption?

Thank you for your time any help greatly appreciated,

Stacey.

The current quoted processing time for this visa is 16-29 months. Many 300 holders have struggled, and will likely continue to struggle for some time, to get travel exemptions, hence the recent announcements around extensions and refunds for this visa class.

Thabks for your responce Mark and taking your time to reply. I know from my immi account the 16 to 29 months I just wondered if there was any chance of sooner than rhis and how accurate it was? I appreciate there are many in the same position as ourselves. I am taking from what you are saying we just have to be patient and wait. There is nothing we can do. Our wedding is booked for October im guessing from the wait times this is going to have to be pushed back.
I hope you are well and coping ok in these uncertain times.
Many thanks 😊

Hi Mark, I don't know anyone personally for an year to sign the identity form 1195 for citizenship.
I have permanent residency for 2 years now.. I work in retail services and have no connection with the members listed in form 1195...

I have been to docters but couple of times a year for 4 years with same docter.. I'm not sure if she would sign it... Does she need to know me personally or professionally like a client to verify my identity??

Hi Mark, I would like to know how an assisted citizenship looks like? Have any of your clients gone through that process? What do they mean by 'assistance'? As in do they read the questions for you? Or do they interpret the questions in your language? Please give your insights into this topic. Thanks

Hi Mark,

Thank you for sharing your expertise with us!

I (a British citizen) applied for 309 in May 2020 from London UK and still waiting for the outcome. However, my husband and I (married for over 2 years) would really need to travel to Sydney in March / April 2021, and ideally be able to stay for 9-12 months. With the travel restrictions, I understand that as a married partner I could travel with my husband as long as I have a valid visa.

Could we apply for tourist visa, either a eVisitor (651) or tourist visa (600)? Will applying for a tourist visa while waiting for the outcome affect my 309 application status? The tourist visa (600) has a processing time of 5-7 months so I’m not sure if we could wait that long.

Any advice or insights would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi Mark, I'm new to the group and I'm looking for an answer for 461 Visa missed health insurance. My visa will be expired September 2021 and will renew it but I missed 2 years of my health insurance due to a personal reasons. Should I get a migration agent or a lawyer to act on my behalf.

TIA 😊
