Hi Lavisy,
I'm sorry but I believe the police check has to be a special federal police check with a box ticked 'for immigration purposes'. Although it says 30 days I know of people getting it within two weeks or even quicker. Don't despair, apply for one now, go to the interview and you will find DIAC will tell you they'll wait for the police check or they might even accept the one you have. All it means the decision will be postponed until the police check arrives.
Good luck

Well I rang immigration and they said they want a federal police check. She wasn't sure if my national police check is ok, seems like it will depend on our CO whether they think its good enough. So in short they weren't sure heh.

They did say not to get another one and waste money in case they think the one I have now is fine, so fingers crossed.

Heya guys,

Well we are off for our interview tomorrow morning, getting quite nervous lol.

We have gone through everything we have collected and are very sure we have enough evidence to show we are a genuine couple for a full 12 months tho our evidence for living together for the full 12 months is a little thin, but we have bank statements and a stat dec from by bfs mum explaining.

We have 7 stats decs from friends and family, so think we have that covered .

My medicals and aussie police check are also included tho we are still waiting on my UK one. However I have an email from the UK police asking for some more info which I gave showing that at least it is being processed.

We have some emails, photos with comments on Facebook, ordinary photos, an invitation to both of us at my aunties 60th birthday party and photos of both our parents standing together.

Im hoping they wont ask for much more evidence because we are giving them all Iv got, so fingers crossed!

Wish us luck!

Our interview went really well! Quite uneventful really hehe.

Our case officer didn't go through our evident too much and was happy with our bank statements from February. No questions testing us on out knowledge of each other which really surprised us. The main issue was sorting out my bfs name change with them, his passport had his old name on it, even tho we had the name change cert they still required us to use his old name for immigration purposes. They we cool tho so its all good.

Turns out my Aus police check wasnt correct so I have to send off for that and my UK police check hasnt arrived yet. But she has only asked us to bring those two in and shes happy to grant the visa if shes happy with the rest of our evidence shes going to look through later.

So yea will keep you posted! Its so nice not to have to sort out evidence anymore, such a weight off my mind!

how the defacto visa works


I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.There is sth about the Defacto visa that I am confused.
I am currently waiting for my fiance PMV outcome it's been 13months now and everytime we call and check this sickening security check is being done,dn't know when it has been started. Those ppl at embassy never told us what was going on and I had to ask a MP to do a follow up for us and since (march) we found out this security check is being done.
Due to uncertainity of my fiance's arrival I even had to cancel our wedding.

We are planning to get married as soon as he gets here but when I read the Defacto application form I found out about this 2year being together.I've been with my finace for 5 years now since I was 19 (long distance relationship) but never been physiacally living together. we have travelled together to few other countries and whenever I was in my birth country I stayed at my parents' house. my confusion is so what happens now, once we get married can't I apply for my fiance(husband) to stay? does he have to go back overseas after 9months?can't we be together ever?I'm so tired of crying in my bed every night in the pas 5 years and not having him by my side.......

thank you for helping me....
