Thank you
I found it hard to supply a large amount of financial evidence as we were living with our parents, however we also supplied a dec from my father confirming the living arrangements and that we paid rent to him.
We also had a joint bank account and included a bank statement from the date it was opened. I then highlighted all purchases that we made together, particularly big things and used it to back up purchases of other evidence (ie. concert tickets, hotel bookings etc). Anything you can find really helps, even if you can't gather mortgage payments etc.
Hope this helps & good luck!

Hi,

re the stat decs, I too was going to have at least 6 but my friend who had done it previously said they ask for 2 give 2. She was same sex de facto, we are not. I actually have 4 - his brother, aunt, cousin and my wwoof host as we met there and still keep in contact.

I'm sending my application off tomo - don't have nearly as much as some people on here. We have:
statement each
4 statements as mentioned
personal & joint bank accounts
rent agreement
sponsors tax for 2 years
country energy bill
copies of passports, birth cert & drivers licence(show our address on)
forms 47SP @ 40SP
2 passport pics each
big fat bankers cheque!!

Think that's the lot?!?!

Sounds pretty good to me, the only aspect I can think of that you may have overlooked is the social aspect (however, stat decs often count towards this). Anyway, if there's anything the department thinks you've missed, they will let you know and you'll have the opportunity to provide it later.

Good luck!

Thanks Hannah.
Yes our statements cover social side - we live in a small town so most of our social life is with his family anyway.
Good luck with yours.

Hi everyone!

My partner and I are in the process of gathering the info we need to apply for the de-facto visa but I have one question...

His working holiday visa that he is currently in Australia on expires on the 8th of October 2011. If we put in the visa application in June, do you think this will allow enough time to process the application? And if we are still waiting on a decision at the beginning of October, is my de facto allowed to leave the country to attend my uncle's wedding on the 6th of October?

thanks!

Hi,
When you apply for your partner's permanent visa, he will be automatically granted a bridging visa which will last him until they make their decision... so there shouldn't be any problems there.
Honestly, I'm not 100% sure about leaving the country, for some reason I think there may be a problem if it's for a long period of time but I think short trips are okay, probably best to check that out with the department though

Cheers.

There's a bit of a twist to what Hannah says for a bridging visa will not kick in until his current WHV ends.

btw. Has he been on a previous WHV, have you been in a relationship prior to the existing one or are you getting a relationship registered to meet the 12 months requirements?
I also take it that it is the 417 WHV and not the 462 which can have a No Further Stay condition on it.

If all is OK for the partner visa application and he is not going to be back in Oz before his WHV expires then he ought to consider seeing Immi to see if he can cancel his WHV early so as to have a BVA issued and then a BVB to allow the travel, possibly best to do it that way to avoid any travel hiccups and find he cannot get back in time for if that happens and the WHV has expired, he may not be allowed to enter!
They could attempt to sort it out for him but better to be sure than sorry.

Alternately, October is a ways off and if he is eligible to work to be eligiblw for a second WHV and is not on his second one already, he ought to consider doing regional/seasonal work or WWOOF Australia Official Website to get one.
