Have been reading a bit on this thread and am now getting a bit nervous I should have put even more work into it? I didn't really worry that much this time around since our relationship IS genuine and we've been together the whole time...

Especially worried about the "Nature of commitment" part, as we don't have any will or superannuation stuff. What did you guys include in this section?

Thanks!
Don't worry, everything will be fine. Same as you, we don't have any superannuation stuff, bills, bank accounts etc, but we did travel a lot together. We've included air tickets, pics that we 've taken during our trip etc.

Thanks Mish!

Okay, first real application question. I'm applying online. In section 13 it asks, "Has it been 24 months since the date the applicant lodged their temporary partner visa application?"

Well... the answer is truthfully "no" since it will be 24 months in March. But am I supposed to say "yes" as they won't likely see the application until after that date?


EDIT: Aaaand an evidence question. So, we have two cats. They're both registered under my husband's name only. I looked into how I might add my name and the Brisbane City Council's website only says that cat registration is no longer required. I'm going to call in and see if there's something we could do, BUT in lieu of that, would vet bills / vaccination certificates with both of our names listed under "owners" work? Is this even something I should include? (Sometimes I think of these cats as children a bit too much. Maybe immigration doesn't care?)

I wouldn't worry about getting your name on the registration. It would absolutely be fine to include any documents for the kitties with both your names on it, though. It's definitely not mandatory, however. Haha.

It's interesting that they're asking that as part of the application now. What happens if you tick "no?"

They've always allowed you to submit documents 2 months early when applying by paper - it'd be annoying if they're not going to allow that 2-month leeway online now.

When I click "no" it doesn't allow me to continue with the application. :/ Surely I'm meant to click "yes" then--why else would they be sending this stuff out so early, you know? I'll probably call and ask just to be on the safe side.

Thanks for the info about the cats! I'll include bills and things. I'm hoping to more-or-less finish this up over the long weekend (or at least, scan everything and apply for the AFP check!) so I might have more questions later! =D

That question threw me too. I mean, duh!

Haha the cat question made me laugh. As ridiculous as it sounds, for my 801 I'm going to submit something from the doggy day care place, where our puppy's got my surname on their records, and also the vets, where he's got my partner's surname. In the table of contents, I've added an explanation, and mused that we should perhaps give him a double-barrelled surname and send him to private school. I figure these guys read applications all day long, so a little humour might brighten their day a little.

Inkhearted, when you call, be sure and post back what they say. I'm curious. It makes sense you would go ahead and tick "yes."

Will do, CollegeGirl!

I'm running into an issue with the online application at the moment--anyone know what to do about this error?

"Give details of the nature of the household. can only contain standard English alphabetic characters including numeric, whitespace and punctuation characters."

It's the same for the other two sections I filled out today. Another two sections that I filled out a few days ago don't have this error. I'm a native English speaker with no knowledge of other languages and working with an English alphabetic and numeric keyboard, so I'm not sure what's going on here! I'm copying and pasting from a Word document and I've tried pasting without source formatting but no change. Tried deleting spaces between paragraphs, parentheses, exclamation points, still won't work. I don't see that any strange characters have worked their way in somehow. Any insights?

What about typing it straight in without copying from word and see if that works?

It's the apostrophes, most likely, in your text. We had the same issue.

Thanks both of you! I actually logged in this morning and was able to click "next" without any errors, without changing anything. Weird. I guess if someone else runs into that problem, try logging out and logging back in and see if that works?
