This is kinda a repost. Sorry, don't think I explained things correctly in the other thread. Here's my timeline.

May-august 2012: I was in Australia on an ETA

December 2012- Dec 2013: I'm still in Australia at the moment. Leaving on the 29th. My 12 month requirement for the partner visa 820 will have been completed. I did not work here.... Tried finding work but no luck. My partner makes enough to support him and I.

Mid February 2014- I will arrive back in Australia (on a tourist visa either ETA or visa 600) after visiting my family in America. I will submit my partner visa 820 when I'm back in Australia.

Okay hope the above makes sense.... My question is....When I come back in Feb will immigration get suspicious of why I'm back so soon after living here for a whole year? If so..... What do I say? Could I tell them in here to see my boyfriend, or is that a big no no? We are now engaged too... I guess I definitely shouldn't mention that? I will be on a one way ticket too. Ugh i'm so nervous about this all!

What 12 month requirement for pmv?u dont need that for pmv. And u do know u submit a pmv offshore?
If u have lived together for 12 months just apply for the 820/801. Which ur gonna have to apply for anyway.

Are u going back on a tourist visa? A 'no further stay' condition may be applied. People on tourist visas should not be buying one way tickets.
And do u mean ur submitting it when ur back in oz or usa?

Pmv is when u marry within 9 months of approval then u apply for 820. Be careful u know what ur doing. As i said u could get a NFS condition once u arrive since ur returning very quickly. This will prevent u from applying onshore. and also u wont be a genuine tourist if ur planning on staying and cant show a return ticket.

So what do I do? Not come back and apply in America? Get married tomorrow then the 12 requirement is waived and I can apply for the partner visa sooner? Honestly I can not be without my partner for too long


By the way, I know what I'm applying for. Just on this forum I see PMV a lot and thought it was the abbreviation for partner visa.

Sorry if my comment some how offended you, but I do know what I'm doing in regards to what visa to apply for. I however need lots of help on other things. I'm under lots of stress! Is it possible I can apply now for the partner visa? It's only been 11 months and 9 days.

Thats ok, i know things can be confusing. What state do u live in? Some states allow u to register your relationship which would waive the 12 month living requirement. Not sure how long that takes though. i think dipb are strict with it being the full 12 months if its not registered.
Another option would be apply offshore, its cheaper and quicker. Once applied u could then go to oz on tourist visa while waiting to process but u would need to go offshore again just before its granted. But obviously wouldnt be able to work unlike a bridging visa u would get if applying onshore.
If all that makes sense lol

Were you living with your partner from May-August 2012?
Immigration may be suspicious as to why you're coming back to aus again after spending 15 months here since may 2012, so let's see if yu could apply for the 820 now...
