Hi , I do believe the sponsor plays a huge part of getting visa if you are in Ankara. I am sorry to say what you are saying is wrong, I have been through the process in Ankara with a devastating outcome. You need overkill in evidence as far as I am concerned . What we have been through I do not trust authorities very much now. I wish you all the best for your visa, what visa are you applying for ?

Just the australian passport and form 40 would have been sufficient to prove your partner's "australianess". So rest of the documentation would have been overkill. That is why they gave you back.
600 Pictures!! personally I think that too is an overkill, Few pictures would have been enough to gauge your relationship and its sincerity. That is probably why she/he gave you the rest of the pictures back.
I'd say nothing to worry about there.
Just my two cents

I was never sure of my opinion and thats why it was a guess. But i was thinking that partner visa's biggest consideration is the genuiness and continuation of the relationship. Which is mostly about the applicant. Ofcourse Sponsor has to show he/she is australian enough to do it with supporting Statuatory declarations and awareness of relationship among peers/family etc..
What I guessed before has been in writing in parliamentary report about family migration.
I am sorry to hear about your case, Do they explain clear enough why your partner visa was rejected? Their explanation would be of great of help in arranging evidences for partner visa for rest of us.

Starbreeze helped me so much with her answers and messages.. I'm so grateful .. I think in some countries which has high risk like my country visa applications are such a torture. . If you are a simple person you have no more chance for European American or australian visas. . But if you are rich enough and have lots of money in your bank account visa is not a problem as they accept your visa in short time.. now as the co said I have to wait 12 months to hear their answer about my visa. . And they can reject ur visa with ridiculous reasons..

Hi Zipcik,
Firstly good luck on your application process. My situation was very similar to yours , roughly about 2000 print outs which included Photos, skype msgs, emails, whats app conv / viber conv. Off which only a handfull were taken as evidence. As someone pointed out in the thread that it comes down to time which is an accurate representation of the situation. What really worked in my case is showing genuiness of the relationship i.e. Holidays, family photos , friends testimony ( needs to be an australian citizen) as long as your documentation is intact it is only a question of time. I submitted my application in person around mid August and had my application approved mid Dec. Some Applications could take longer but the avg is around 5-7 months. Also your ques about Notice of Assessment . I was asked not to submit it . Given that it is christmas period now , it will be slow till mid jan. Hope this helps you.

I know you were not sure, my advice to anyone is you can never have too much evidence of you relationship. We put in our evidence and all I am saying on a public forum is the letter they sent us said we did not put in evidence not even NOIM which is a lie. Good luck to everyone because these horror stories are true that you read. Mine is a lot more involved but I do not trust people enough now to put it all over the forum. There are some wonderful amazing people here and then you never really know who is reading this. Good luck

it was the decision notice. The new lawyer we used said it was the most blatantly racist refusal letter he has ever seen in his 20 year career. All the reasons they gave were either outright lies ( which we proved in our second visa application which we dud in Kenya, first was malaysia), or racial stereotyping . Read my threads what happened to us was outrageous. Indians in malYsia hate Africans. It's just a fact. After visiting Malaysia 18 times I saw it every day. At work on the bus on the street. Indians were blatantly abusive to my partner and other African friends on more occasions thAn I can count.

Zipcik,

I think from my experience, I wouldn't worry too much about the sponsor's documents. What they really are concerned about is the genuineness of the relationship. You certainly don't need 600 photos to prove that, in fact they recommend sending only a few. I guess a dozen are enough, which is why you got them back.

What other documents did you have that they returned?

As long as you have all the evidence of relationship and that was accepted, that should be good enough.
