I do wonder if down the track they may change the rules and make it so only married couples or much longer term relationships (2+ years defacto) will be eligible to apply. I know too many people who start dating - open bank accounts,register,get both names on a lease...basically cherry pick what immigration ask for and then lodge de facto applications 13 months after they met....if I was a CO I would be highly suspicious of anyone who took those steps so early into a relationship. Me and the boy have been together for 2.5 years and we don't have joint accounts...we have all banking passwords and pin codes but prefer to keep finances separate...

He is too old (over 30) for working holiday. But i was just looking into the visitor 600 visa which u can apply for in Australia?
so if he came on a 3 month tourist visa, could he then apply to stay longer on THIS visa?

The 600 that you are mentioning about that you apply for in Australia is the family sponsored visa and you can't because you aren't family. Your partner will need to apply for the 600 tourist stream which is lodged in his country of residence.

Why does it not apply for an ETA being from the UK? Unless he is not from the UK or has a criminal record.....

With the 600 he can extend it onshore but only if it comes with a NFS clause.

what is ETA? I think he may have already; Immi told him last year he must re-submit his application as they made changes to the Tourist visa- which i believe is now the 600? I dont think there is a NFS clause.

Electronic Travel Authority. People from low risk countries like the UK and USA can apply online for $20 and they get approved in like 5 minutes. Here is the link: https://www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETA/etas.jsp

He only needs to use the 600 to apply if he is not originally from the UK, has a criminal record.

Waiver of the 12-month relationship requirement

Hi there,
Look, if you are genuine there are ways to increase the balance of evidence. Try and get 888 forms from people that know you and can attest to the relationship, correspondence, in your own stat decs talk about interdependence. Look for any correspondence you have to the same address. I know many people how didn't have joint bank accounts or assets so don't stress, just collate suitable evidence.
Marriage or in the case of same sex relationship, registering the relation ship significantly helps.
Remember, the Australian government wants it's citizens to be happy and have full lives. Research tells us that having a happy and fulfilled relationship does that. This application process is all about what the Australian Citizen wants.
All the best,


Waiver of the 12-month relationship requirement
The 12-month relationship requirement at time of application lodgement does not apply if:
• you can establish that there are compelling and compassionate circumstances for the grant of the
visa, such as you have children with your partner or cohabitation was not permissible under the law
of the country where you resided for the 12 months before you applied;
• your partner is, or was, the holder of a permanent humanitarian visa, and before that permanent
humanitarian visa was granted, you were in a relationship with your partner that satisfies the
requirements of a de facto relationship according to the Migration Regulations, and the department
was informed of this before the permanent humanitarian visa was granted; or
• at the time of application for the visa the de facto relationship was registered under a law of a state
or territory prescribed in the Acts Interpretation (Registered Relationship) Regulations 2008 as a
kind of relationship prescribed in those regulations. Relationship registration is not available in all
Australian states or territories and eligibility for registration also differs depending on the state or
territory. Prospective applicants considering registration of their relationship should check with the
relevant state or territory Births, Deaths and Marriages agency for further information.
If you feel that there are compelling and compassionate circumstances that may mean the 12-month
requirement does not apply, you should provide a statement with your application that outlines and
explains the reasons for your request.
For further information on the 12-month relationship requirement, see Fact sheet 35 One-Year
Relationship Requirement, which is available from the department’s website or from your nearest office of the department or Australian mission.
