No I got my driving license before my partner visa application. You can check more detail about the required documents from the driving license center website

Help :s

Hey everyone,

I'm seriously freaking out right now. I got an email to say that I should upload all my documents by 31st April, and I should receive my visa before 30th June.... BUT I haven't got everything certified and I'm now terrified that I've totally mucked everything up!? I didn't realise that I had to have everything certified, I thought it was just for paper applications for some reason, until I spoke to someone the other day who is also going through the same process and advised I should have had everything witnessed.....!!!!

Can anyone give me a list of what is the BARE MINIMUM of what I need to have certified by JP's? The only things that have been witnessed is the stat dec's! I need to get all my passport and birth cert etc certified, don't i? What about photographs/letters/tennancy agreement etc?

I'm freaking out. I don't think I have enough space left to upload everything again. What should I do!?!?!

First, breathe.

I don't want to spend a bunch of time searching for the posts, but there are posts on here from recent successful applicants and forum moderators that the statutory declarations and any document translations are the only things that need to be certified by the appropriate authority if you are applying online. I took it one step further and had all people providing declarations provide notarised copies of identity documents, and the birth certificate I provided was certified. Other than that, marriage certificate, passports, etc, were scanned in color. Photos - what would they be notarising? Try not to worry. And if you need to upload more documents, try to combine them into one pdf then reduce the size of the pdf file in Acrobat and remember that you have 60 upload slots under your sponsor's application as well - that is how we were able to upload so many things and still have slots leftover.

Hope this makes you feel better. I am worrying myself about details here and there but it is mainly because of the long wait. Seeing your post reminds me that this is nerve wracking for all of us despite all our careful work on the applications--ultimately it's about being with our loves and so it is very important!

Cheers

Out of curiosity, for those here still waiting and haven't gotten to the 12 (or even 10) month mark yet, what is the general feeling you have? For example, the whole process before applying and after applying was quite nerve racking. There was lots of worry about if the application was done right, have we uploaded enough evidence etc, but over the months after the application, my partner got a job and has been busy working and life has been life as usual. Every now and again we start to worry about whether everything in the application is still good, but otherwise it's fairly relaxed. The worry about what would happen if things with the application went pear shaped have pretty much disappeared and it's not something we like to think about and therefore don't.

Like we aren't constantly thinking of things like gathering continuous evidence of our relationship like communication, spending etc as it's all electronically recorded thankfully and know that we can sit down to compile it together as required rather. It's just one of those scenarios where I feel like we should be thinking more about it than we actually are.

Just wondering how others are going? I'm guessing we're just feeling the way we are because there is just so much time in-between submitting the application and actually hearing something. I'd expect the feeling to change when they do get back to us though.

Anyone applied around Feb last year?

Hi all,

My application was submitted back on 09/02/2015. I haven't received any updates except the system-generated queue email.

Anyone applied around Feb2015 got approved or contacted by CO? I feel really stressful as I need the visa asap to get a proper job.

I'm guessing that online applications are put into a central queue, and then moved to which ever office has room in their queue as it comes closer to processing time. In the end doesn't really matter where they are processed as long as they get done.
