evidence

i guess what i don't understand is the kind of evidence that i can provide. i am reading about in this document the set up of your household... but how can we have a household if he doesnt have access to the country? or is, me buying some furniture and paying some rent in greece the equivalent of this?

I guess you need to find a way to spend time living together either him coming over on a tourist visa or you go over there.

tourist visa

im happy for him to come as tourist first. is it common for someone to get a 12 month tourist visa? or is it more likely to apply for a 3 month or 6 month? If i apply for a 12 month and they knock it back will they say no u can only 3 months, or will i have to re apply? keith

I'm not so sure about that. It depends on the country he comes from. It is harder for applicants from high risk countries to be granted a tourist visa.

If they rejected your application, you have to re-apply.

Maybe you can do more research on Department of Immigration & Border Protection to find out. Or give the DIBP a ring.

DIBP wont see your relationship as de facto. They will see it as 'dating'.
How old is your partner? If hes under 31 he could maybe get a WHV and you would have a year of gathering evidence that way

He would need about 12 grand in the bank to come for that long as a tourist as they need to be able to see he can support himself..and that he is a genuine tourist

Hi Keith - Welcome to the forums. I apologize for your two posts that were not showing up - they should be now. For some reason they triggered the board's spam filters. Technology is great... until it isn't, know what I mean? Haha. Anyway, they're there now.

Unfortunately getting married is not going to help your case any as Australia won't recognize it.

Registering your relationship will waive the requirement that you've been living together for *exactly 12 months,* but you're still going to have a very hard time getting approved if you can't evidence that you've lived together for at least a few months. As you noted, you need evidence of combined households and finances - and you can't do that if you're living separately.

Unfortunately the Working Holiday Visa someone mentioned is not an option for people from Greece, so that won't work.

I think in your situation I would try for a 12-month tourist visa (IF your partner has the $12k mentioned above available). If they give you a three-month tourist visa, you could theoretically apply at the end of that three months (once you've collected evidence of living together, combined finances, etc). But you'd be better off, in my opinion, finding a course for him to study and living together for several months before applying.

Thanks college girl u have alot of good ideas. 12000 in bank is ok. I'll just set up shared account and move that much in. Does more make it easier to get 12 months? Also if they only give 3 month what kind of courses count as official studying? I know it's unbelieble it was to me first but we are ready for fulltime living togethe and are so comitted... We just dont want to waste time when we can start our life's together! Is there a place with podsible courses that count? Maybe a cheapy one? Cheers Keith

Unfortunately I can't help with the student visa. Partner visas are all I have experience with.
