My stress levels are through the roof and i haven't even started it yet..lol.. Im just trying to get some information for my fiance and i because she is very pessimistic about the success of it working out. She's doubted our relationship more than once because of the stress she's going through

Yes... Assurance of Support is not limited to parents. As I said, Google it and take some time to read around.

Try to relax. I know it's hard but we have all been there. Panic only makes things harder to understand.

I know you are already saving up but do not know your precise situation. Just in case you can, you might look into getting help from an agent. We couldn't afford it, but just in case you can it might not be a bad idea in your case since the situation seems to weigh this heavily on you. Good luck.

Well Vince, not really knowing your exact situation, except we share high risk countries, getting a tourist visa involves your lady having enough assets in her own right back in Indo to convince immig. that she is not a flight risk!!! Has she?

Also your current financials are not too healthy at this stage so you need to cover the visa application costs which is very expensive. You say your parents are pensioners....do they have assets like a home, big enough to accommodate the 2 of you for a period....that would be a great help.

Its much cheaper to continue visiting Indo rather than go the visa route....Fares are reasonably cheap when promos are around....Get plenty of pics, not the tourisy stuff but ones with her family, friends, just everyday things, maybe open a joint bank account there, from which you can deposit occasionally n she withdraw, keeping receipts how the money was spent.

Build up some quality evidence before worrying about the visa just yet....if she decides to bail then at least you found out sooner than later.....its a stressful exercise so do your homework first.

Hope all turns out well for you guys....

My fiance lives with her mother who owns her own business in rice export.. My Fiance works as an accountant. I don't see how she could be considered a flight risk.. Anyway, My parents are pensioners, but they do own their home, and if my fiance were to come live with me she would be staying in my room until our finances improve. I don't see the option of having a joint bank account. I was advised that it is not necessary if you have enough evidence.

I do have proof of purchase and pictures of the engagement ring i bought her. And i also have proof of purchase through my bank account and fight reservations that we both took a trip together. Both our names are on the tickets... I also have plenty of pics together with her and with her family. So based on all this i suspect there wouldn't be too much problems applying for a PMV.. I can open a joint bank account once she comes here to marry me on a PMV and gather the evidence over the months before applying for partner visa.

And about the application fees, my father will consider paying it for me..

Hi Vince,

I can not stress this enough - your love for your lady is also considered "a flight risk".

It seems too many before us have used the visitor visa system only then to apply for another visa to try beat the expensive and slow partner visa system.

We had what I thought was a strong visitor visa application - she has a property interest and good amount of cash in bank - We got rejected application 2 weeks ago and now must re-apply.

It seems very much the system is dealt to look at things not being accepted, so what you think you need get 20 or 50% more to prove that she will return.


All the best.

And they have proof of their finances to say they can more than handle the expenses while here.. What do you think are the chances of it getting rejected?

I've made sure not to include in my statement anything that mentions our relationship or engagement. All i wrote was that i met her online social site and have made several trips to meet her. Nothing in detail. And both her mum and my fiance will be getting a certificate or notice from their work to show they have ties back home in Indonesia. If immigration knew the size of their bank account, they wouldn't be calling them a flight risk..lol.. If all goes bad, then im just going straight for the Marriage visa. and i'll just make visits there while its being processed.

my fiance doesn't have any property interests. The only thing she has is her job as an accountant. The mother runs a very successful business and owns 3 properties. What would you suggest could be used for evidence to return for my fiance?

That's what is stressing me and my lady now,

My lady has been in the same job at a University for over 7 years, owns a property with parents and substantial cash in her bank.

It all depends on location of Embassy and the particular Case Officer from what I see.

Cheers.
