congratulations! When you say you were only living together for 6 months, but registered your "ship", what does the latter mean??

"rship" as in shorthand for "relationship".

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I mean when said registering your relationship. How, why, where did you register?

I must be the latest addition to this waiting group - I have just submitted my application, hoping it will be good enough for the scrutinising eyes in the DIBP. We have been a couple well over a year now, crossing our fingers for a positive outcome..

Hi

Depending on the states where you are now. You can actually register your relationship with the Registry of BDM (Birth Death and Marriage) at your state. You can google to get more info on it. By registering your rship, you can waive the "12 months of living together" , but you still have to have all other proofs for the 12 months. (Please correct me for my wordings seniors. 😛)

Hope this helps

I have to admit - reading these posts officially depressed me. We applied onshore in January 2017. We submitted two years of de facto proof including leases, shared credit cards, shared travel, everything. We uploaded 50mb worth of Facebook posts spanning 2.5 years, 50mb of photos, and a zillion emails. Our relationship stories were novellas. We loaded three 888 as well as several additional stat decs. Medical check? Check. Police clearances? Check. (Although they did just send me an email LAST week asking for those - to which I asked if the ones on the website were not enough. Apparently, they had not seen them.)

And we still don't have a case officer.

So, yeah, it's pretty depressing to read about people who applied six month later and already have their visas.

Not to be a downer - but is anyone else in the same boat as us? I could use some shared-misery.

Thanks!

I‘m in the same boat. We applied in June 2017. We have heard nothing, not one email since the autogenerated ones on the day of application. We have been married for many years and loaded everything within a week or so of applying. It is super frustrating and disconcerting that zero action has been taken on our application. So rest assured you are not alone

Hello - I applied just before you in December 2016. I recieved my Bridging Visa within a couple of days. Then in January 2017 my Aussie partner was asked to provide his Police Certificate but we haven't heard anything since and it has now been a year. The waiting processing times have increased once again on the website. We are faced with 20-25 months wait. https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/801-

Yes, we're in that boat. The road has been long, expensive, stressful and mentally straining.

We applied in Mar 17. My fiance has not been allowed to work. All our savings are gone. We survive (not really) on my wage supporting 2 children. Our credit card debt is astronomical. Every month we go backwards. My partner is now on a BVE, can't travel home to see his daughter or his grandmother who is literally dying.

Our application is complete. Police checks, medicals, entire history, registered relationship, every. single. thing. over 12 month relationship, living together, shared bills in everything, shared bank accounts, super and wills shared. And it sits there, just waiting for someone to pick it up and say yes. He's from a low risk country.

I am literally in tears typing this. The partner visa process is enough stress, let alone not being able to work, the stress of that on a relationship and the denial of being able to go home to visit loved ones is awful. The complete feeling of worthlessness from my fiance's point of view is heartbreaking, and all we can do is put a smile on our faces and try to pretend it's not as hard as it is. No one actually understands this process.
So yeah, I hear you.
