Leaving country that de facto visa application was lodged in?

Hi all,

I tried to search to see whether a similar topic had been posted but couldn't find one.. If this question has been answered before then please feel free to just point me in the direction of a previous topic..

I am British and my g/f is Australian.. We have been together for 5 years and are applying for our de facto visa. We have lots of evidence to show that we are a de facto couple and I am confident that our application will be approved

Currently we are living in Canada, although we have to leave at the end of September as our visas expire.. We will then be doing some travelling in Europe and Asia before hopefully arriving in Oz at the beginning of November.

We are just about ready to submit our de facto application in Canada, but are quite worried that it will not be signed off before we have to leave Canada..

Would anyone be able to tell me know the implications of leaving Canada while our visa application was still being considered?

I am hoping that I will just be able to take my passport to an Australian consulate/embassy in one of the countries that we are visiting and have the visa added in there once it has been approved by the Case Officer in Canada.. Does this sound realistic?

Many Thanks,

Alastair

You can apply in Canada and there is nothing to stop you travelling once the application is in, however I would make sure that info is clearly transmitted if applicable via a form 1022 and you have an email address for prime contact.
It seems from a couple of posts that partner visas have slowed a bit with end of financial year land budgeted number looming but then someone just posted recently on getting a visa within about a week [ might have even been Canada ] , so regardless of whether there'll be a backlog or not to be addressed on July01, speed of processing will aside from meeting eligibility depend on a number of factors but with luck you may even have the visa granted before the end of September.
That'll certainly simplify matters if an interview is called for later rather than earlier.
As far as entering Australia before that visa is able to be granted, you'll need to get yourself an ETA or visitor visa and be prepared to leave again when the visa is ready for granting as offshore visas can only be granted offshore.

thanks for the speedy reply, that's very encouraging and we'll make sure to flag up that we will be leaving the country when we submit our application

thanks again
