Hi Har,

I only applied in December but the evidence I gave was
Photos together and with each others family.
Bills with both names
Joint bank account
Wedding invites
Travel details
Phone statements
Stat decs from family and friends
I also took screenshots of some Facebook posts showing places we've been together.
Bank statements to show proof of sharing house expenses.

Hope this helps, you can find a checklist online

Thanks iryuasada! Its the best feeling! I'm sure it won't be long until you get yours too!!
It's such a weight off our shoulders now knowing we can focus on our wedding plans and stop worrying about the visa.

Yeah its crazy that they make you wait so long then they can grant it so quick once a case officer actually takes a look at it. The lady who rang me about the complaint yesterday said my case officer wasn't working yesterday, then she was in today only a couple of hours before granting our visa!

I think that's what makes it so frustrating that they're clearly lying about all the cases being dealt with in date order - I wouldn't have minded waiting so long if everyone was in the same boat, but unfortunately that's not how it works. Still, you only applied just after me so it can't be much longer now for you - stay positive!!

Definitely don't spend money unnecessarily redoing your medicals or police checks - I had submitted police checks with my application which are now wayyyy out of date, my medical was only done last March though so that was still valid but from what I've seen of other peoples grants they don't seem to be requesting new ones to be done.

This is the link you need to submit a complaint:

Feedback – About our Service

You shouldn't even need your lawyer to do it - do you have your file number for your application? I think thats all you need, just your details. Definitely worth doing anyway id say!!

How long were you both on the bills before you applied?/ how long have you been living together?
Have you submitted at least 2 forms 888 (statement from family and friends)
It seems like you didn't submit much.. did you have pictures of you with friends and family?



You only have 28 days so you need to find more proofs quickly and/or talk to an agent!

What about wills, super beneficiary, joint lease, joint bills, joint items together ie. Washing machine.

Usually the case officer when they request further information will give you examples of what they are after.

IMO travelling together doesn't show a future commitment as you can travel with friends.

Hi, so my partner and I have been together around 6 months (we met 11 months ago after I arrived from the UK but became "officially defacto" in September 2014) I am on a working holiday visa and have been granted my second year visa which commences March 2015.

Compared to others in posts i have read i realise we haven't been together for long but we both cannot imagine our lives apart and have discussed (and agreed to) apply for the partner visa.

I'm in two minds about what to apply for..ideally i would like to apply for the 820 whilst i am still on my working holiday visa but am worried about the time it takes to be granted (as i know you have to be in the country when this happens), I am worried that my WHV will expire before the 820 is granted?! what are other peoples experiences with this?! and opinions and advice would be appreciated.

Has anyone applied from outside of australia (309)? would interested to hear your stories.

Thanks
Chloe

Chloe, if you apply for an 820 visa before your WHV expires, you will be granted a Bridging Visa A once your 820 application is received by DIBP. The BVA allows you to remain (and work) in Australia until the your 820 application is finalised. This is usually the preferred option for applicants due to the ability to remain with their partner and also work.

If you apply for a 309 outside Australia, you do not get any bridging visa. So your only ability to comet to Australia during processing (after your WHV expires) would be a tourist visa and you can't work on that.

You have a lot of time to build up 12 solid months of evidence of a de facto relationship on your WHV before you need to apply for the 820. Look through the various threads here for examples of evidence to start organising and collecting (joint bank accounts, etc.)

Hi Chloe

It sounds like you are a confused a little bit.

Firstly, 820 is the onshore application and 309 is the offshore. For a 820 you must be onshore when granted and a 309 offshore when it is granted.

The is great you have been approved for a second working holiday visa that will give you time to gather alot of evidence . You can submit your 820 before the second working holiday visa expires. Once you submit the 820 you will be granted a bridging visa A (BVA) which comes into effect when the WHV expires. While the BVA is in effect it allows you to stay in Australia and work while you wait for a decision. It does not allow you to travel out of Australia so if you want to travel overseas you need to apply for a BVB.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask

Maggie-May24 and Mish, firstly, thank you for the replies! Both were very helpful

you're right mish - i was confused! i didn't realise the BVA would be granted when the application is received (so i assume we're talking hours/days for it to be received not weeks/months?!) that sounds perfect for our situation. Ideally we will apply for it as soon as we hit the 12 month mark and then i will be able to apply for a perm job (as lots of you may know WHV are restricted to 6 months with each company) and start saving for our future together!

And as you both said we have a lot of time to gather some solid evidence on top of what we already have.

We aren't currently living together but we spend 4 days a week staying at each others apartments - i know living together is a big plus when applying but due to work commitments and me going away to do my regional work it just wasn't possible at the time. What are your thoughts on this?

We're hoping to open up a joint bank account and have already made joint purchases and been on holidays together etc. so i think we have a good start with collecting our evidence.

thanks again

Chloe

You normally get granted your bridging visa immediately after lodging your application - if you apply online (which I highly recommend).

To qualify for a 820 visa you MUST prove that you've lived together for at least 12 months prior lodgement, unless you can register your relationship (not every state allows this, unfortunately). Registering your relationship waives the 12 month living together requirement but you still need strong evidence of a shared life.
We also recommend even with relationship registration having evidence of living together for at least 6 months.

What you describe is -from immigration's point of view- dating. Any chance you could move in together anytime soon?
