Applying for a WHV with an unsubmitted 309 app in the Immicaccount?

Partner and I are looking for the quickest way to be back together (this is the fourth time we've had to do extended long-distance, been apart for 5 months now and its awful for mental health)

We have started a 309/100 application in her Immiaccount, but haven't submitted due to all the uncertainty around processing etc. at the moment.

We have a registered relationship in Australia and so she can go for an exemption, would having the unsubmitted 309/100 app in the account be any issue if we applied for a 417 visa w/exemption?

Thanks in advance for any help anybody may be able to give!

If you apply for the working holiday visa you should inform the Department of your current relationship. If you don't, when it comes time to apply for the partner visa it might cause issues.

Once in Australia and once the WHV expires, you could apply for a 820/801 partner visa, which is the onshore application.

Thanks for the help Eh? !

I've got another quick question if anybody could help - What should we be putting as our relationship status on the WHV application? We're defacto (registered relationship) but also engaged, both of which are options in the menu. Given the Department's preference for the term 'partner' in every thing I'm leaning towards defacto at this point.

De facto means living as partners in the same way as a married couple, but not legally married.

Engaged means planning to become partners at some stage in the future.

De facto would seem better for a partner visa.
