Question Which route?


I'm having trouble deciding if me and my partner should meet in a mutual country or him get a visa here? He said it might be easier for him to get a french visa because he lives in a french country. Because he lives in a high risk country, Burkina Faso and i was told by a migrant agent it would be highly unlikely he would successfully get a visa here. Also if i'm the reason he comes here and he can't put that because we're together, what do we say? We already registered our relationship before we met, but i had no idea it was for after u met, so will it still be useful?

If you are planning to apply for a partner visa at any stage it is better evidence wise if either he comes here or you go to his country. Going to a different country would be a last resort ie. You are not able to go to his country or he can not get a visitor visa here.

On the visitor visa application I would not lie about your relationship. He needs to put it down. The reason for this is that DIBP keep a record of all applications and if you apply for a partner visa and don't mention it on the visitor visa application this could make them think that your relationship is not genuine.

Just with the visitor visa application they do reject alot from high risk countries but you may as well try. Just make sure it is a bullet proof application to try and get it approved, but even then that may not help. We have seen a few visitor visas approved from high risk countries on this forum but there have been alot unfortunately.
