Hi people!

I have just finished uploading all my evidence for the 820 visa, now preparing for a very long waiting period.


This is the evidence we uploaded:

Nature of the couple's household
- other: Short statement on why we have used our and each other's parents addresses for some things
- utilities notice: Joint bills from overseas (april and june 2015) and screenshot of joint utilities accounts from Australia (recently opened and haven't got any actual bills with both names on them yet)

Form 888:
- From three Australians

Financial aspects:
- other: Bank statements sponsor Australian account
- other: Joint bank statement Australia (6 months worth from 2014)
- other: Bank statements applicant Australian account
- other: Bank statements applicant overseas account
- other: Bank statements sponsor overseas everyday account
- other: Bank statements sponsor overseas savings account (we both used this for our savings)
- household bills and expenses (joint): bills and receipts to back up bank statements (we have shared expenses since mid 2013)
- asset ownership documentation: Joint car rego (incl contract and receipt in sponsor's name, purchased Jan 2016)

Address (residential):
- other: welcome letter from Flybys in applicants name including one card for each applicant and sponsor
- other: change of address letter to sponsor with new sticker for drivers license (had his old address on the copy of drivers license we uploaded)

Couple are living together:
- other mail: mail addressed to both of us during our first year living together (very little)
- lease agreement: joint lease for our second year of living together (overseas)
- lease agreement: joint lease signed two months ago (Australia)

Relationship (De facto), evidence of:
- further statement about relationship: Sponsor statement
- further statement about relationship: Applicant statement

Social aspects:
- travel tickets: joint travel itineraries since mid 2013 and boarding passes from a recent big trip
- statutory declaration: statements from applicants dad and a close friend
- record of social event and activities: Various cards and invitations to both and a birthday letter from applicant to sponsor (most without dates)

Length of de facto relationship:
- other: Facebook screenshots of posts that include both of us
- other: Facebook messages since we first moved in together

Photos:
- 14 photos of sponsor and applicant together and with family and friends since mid 2013

Nature of commitment:
- Record of contact while apart: Facebook messages between the time we decided we were a couple and when we moved in together (about two months)

ID applicant:
- birth certificate
- drivers license
- passport
- passport photos

ID sponsor:
- passport
- foreign passport
- drivers license
- black and white copy of birth certificate and a statement explaining that we ordered a new one and receipt for this

Character:
- Police clearance applicant from overseas
- Form 80 applicant


Will upload Australian PC and the medical later. I just wrote this as it appears on my immiaccount, that's why it might be a bit messy

But honestly, do you think this is enough? I feel like we have somewhat covered all the categories. Except we don't have wills nor are we super beneficiaries for each other. The only "commitment" that we have is our car that we recently bought together and our relationship statements which include future plans.


Crossing my fingers for all of you that have already applied - hope you don't have to wait much longer!

Hi kris1

All good except for as you said lacking in nature of commitment. I presume one or both of you have super so it is easy enough to add the other as a binding beneficiary (some companies only do 3 years anyway).

Another thing you can do is on mygov go to ATO part and add each other as authorised contacts and screen shot both of those. That shows nature of commitment too

Hi I was wondering what visa you were on when you first were in Australia before you did the 820. I am going soon on a tourist 1 year and want to apply for the 820 during that time.
Thanks
Lisa

I had a request for more info today, my c.o. also said this..."Further relationship evidence is not required, as you have been assessed as meeting this aspect of the application."
Is this a good thing? Do I need to send more supporting evidence or is it just down to my medical, police check and interview?

Thanks for the advice! Neither of us have used mygov before, we hadnt even heard of it, haha. Would it make sense to make new accounts for this? I mean obviously we are doing it solely for visa purposes. I dont if we will even use it in the future.

We did also both include future plans (buying a house, starting a family etc) in our relationship statements.

How do you plan to lodge your tax returns? Mygov is used to lodge your tax returns now if doing it yourself. Mygov is also used for Medicare you can update your details through that too. So I think you would probably be using mygov for more than the visa.

Sponsor has always used an accountant for that, so i would probably do the same. I also thought of places where we could add each other as emergency contacts, but can't think of any
