Applied on 29 April 2014

Hiya,
I uploaded evidence up until the decision was decided. I also received an email saying my application would soon be passed on to a CO so to make sure all evidence was uploaded. Have you received an email like that?

I haven't had any correspondence yet. I used a agent and I asked her recently. Hopefully soon though :)

Hiya,

I was originally contacted in October 2014 stating my application was soon to be passed onto a CO, so 7 months after I applied. On the 16th of December I was asked by my Co to complete my medical etc which I had 28 days to do. I handed Thoses in this Tuesday and I was granted my visa the following day. I hope this helps!

Hi everyone, I have got a strange situation here and it will be very appreciated if anyone can help.

Me and my partner have applied our application on Nov 2013 by paper.

And I got an email from immi about more evidences requested yesterday.

Here is the content,


Invitation to comment on information for a Partner (Temporary) (class UK) (subclass

820) / Partner (Residence) (class BS) (subclass 801) visa

De facto relationship 12 month requirement

... ...

... ...(a lots of examples that I can provide)

In addition to establishing that you are the de facto partner of your sponsor, to be eligible for

the grant of a Partner visa on the basis of a de facto relationship, you must meet additional

criteria under regulation 2.03A (attached).

Paragraph (3) of regulation 2.03A specifies that, where an applicant cannot establish

compelling or compassionate circumstances for grant of the visa, they must have been in a

de facto relationship for at least the period of 12 months immediately prior to lodging the

application. Periods of ‘dating’ do not count towards the 12-month relationship requirement.

Compelling and compassionate circumstances may include, but are not limited to,

circumstances such as you have children with your partner or cohabitation was not

permissible under the law of the country where you resided for the 12 months before you

applied.



First of all, I did provide 18 months rental lease, joint accounts (about 6 months before the lodgement day), travelling tickets, photos, etc. as evidences that we have been de facto over 12 months. I called to immi today and the attitude of the immigration staff was so bad. I am so confused now. :confused::confused::confused:

Anyone know if I can just email back to ask? Or should I just provide more evidences to support the relationship?:(

Thanks for the help.

I am thrilled to announce that I got my 820 visa approved today!!
Took exactly 10 months, I applied on March 28th 2014!
I couldn't be happier and totally didn't expect it because I have just been granted a BVB 8 days ago - just sucks that they charged me the $140 anyway :p oh well, who cares.

Wish all of you a great day :)

Congratulations starlight and Maureen.h!:)
Indeed this is happy news and I hope you are still celebrating! All the best of luck in the years ahead in Australia!:)

Welcome to the forum.

It is always best to contact the case officer instead of ringing DIBP as the people at DIBP just offer general advice which is not always correct.

I would email the case officer and say how you provided a joint lease from x date and ask her if she had received it. It is always best to ask if they got it then say "you are wrong".

It sounds like they may have missed the lease.

Also in regards to your partner. Is he a citizen or PR? If PR I would say something like ... he is a PR under subclass xxx. Then you can ask what evidence she requires in order to demonstrate he is not a PR from humanitarian visa.

Good luck :)

Hi Jacsaly,

I am sorry to hear about your situation. I do not have much advice to give, but it seems that you can send your question to Ask Mark (in the thread with the same name), as he is a migration agent.

I do not understand what they are saying. It seems they think the evidence you provided is not enough and they want proof of a humanitarian visa or a registration of the relationship. They might want more detailed stories of your circumstances to address those 4-5 points (like nature of relationship, etc).

I was told over the phone that the space in the forms is just indicative (I was typing the 2000 characters online) and that is probably not enough, so I should submit a stat dec with each topic addressed in sufficient words.

In my case too I had bad experiences calling their service line, but called again and again. There are also nice people there.

If you can, register your relationship... I didn't know it was possible for ages... wish someone told us.
For example it is possible in NSW and QLD
Relationships register - BDM New South Wales

Thanks for your reply.

I will probably reply that email directly and see how it goes :(
