Hi Mark
Hope you can help, myself and our wife were granted our 189 visas and we have not yet moved permenantly to Australia from the uk, we have been held up in the UK due to various family illness and things, anyway we have since also adopted a child and so are looking to get a visa for them. We have done it all legally through the official channels here but it seems complicated when I checked on the visa website. We seem to have all the criteria but am still not sure how to proceed, due you have any advise regarding this
Many thanks

Hi Mark,

I've read in an "Australia Visa News" article about DHA’s new “2 day” policy where primary documents for applications must be uploaded within 2 calendar days from lodgment or the application is liable for refusal without any further request for documents.

Does this apply to all visas?

What do primary documents include? I'm applying with my partner for a de facto partner visa and I would like to be as prepared as possible.

Thank you in advance.

Kelly

Smile Hello Mark hope this message finds you well

Hello Mark,

How are you? Hope this message somehow finds you well and sorry that this message is so long

I would like to ask you if you could please try to asses my situation on how to apply for partner visas 820/801 onshore and maybe some tips on it on our situation?

=====================================
Something about us:
- I am a Australian citizen (Born in Australia) and living in Czech Republic for the past 15 or so years.
- I married a women (Czech citizen) here in Czech Republic (married now for 1year)
- We have been together for 2years and 2months now.
- We have a lovely baby daughter together 9months old now.
- I requested overseas to the UK office "citizenship by descent" last month (still waiting for it to be approved).

- We are planning (all three of us at the same time) to move to Australia in August this year. My wife will be flying on tourist visa and I will try not to get “NFS” on her visa. Then we will look for the tickets and buy them.
- We will be living at my brothers place till we manage to find and rent a house. Once we will settle in we will apply for the partner visa 820/801.
- Once in Australia we will get 2x form 888 done by friends/family and also before leaving Czech Rep. we will get a couple of declarations from friend in similar format as the form 888 in English and officially notorized by the Czech office.
-Police certification will be done before we fly off.
=====================================


=====================================
Questions:
- I need to validate things regarding translation of our documents in Czech language. I have a translator that is a court translator and interpreter of Czech Republic, do you think that if I were to get all our personal documents translated by her that the Australian office would accept our translation? The thing is that it would be cheaper for us… Its a official translation but it doesn’t have the apostle stamp.
- We have 2 bank accounts, we jointed each other to both of them. We have 2 papers stating that we are administrators of each account, will they need translating or not?
- Our landlord that we are renting a flat from will write a declaration in English that we are renting the place together as a family and that we have bills like (electrition, gas, TV and internet that we are paying for) also one thing is that we both have a ID card and on both we have the same permeant address at my parents house as here in Czech its not normal that when renting a flat that you have your permeant address at the place where you rent, we are using the permeant address for postal usage only. Is this going to be a issue?
-Regarding all other additional documents for example: Tv and internet contract, cars insurance we have both to the same permeant address, joint mobil accounts, do they have to be also translated or are the names and permeant address enough?
-Things that we buy are usually paid by card or online payment so if I make a PDF were there will be a screenshot of the payment + photo of the thing we bough, should that be enough as evidence regarding the financial aspect?
- Regarding tickets that we will be buying: my daughter and I will be flying on oneway tickets but is it possible for my wife which will have tourist visa, buy a oneway ticket also?
=====================================

This is all that I could think from the top of my head thank you so much for any help and tips that you could provide us!!! Wish you a great day and will be looking forward to your reply if you will have the time and patience

Mark!

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions.

My partner and I are planning to go thru the 801/820 process here soon. We will have been together, but our relationship has been international long distance the entire time (over 12 months). This is my plan.
-Enter on a 3 month tourist visa (i'm too old for the working holiday visa) and during this time apply for the 820 (at this time we will have only lived together the 3 months)
-stay in australia with the BVA or BVB if possible and work and accumulate more documentation to add to the 820 application while it processes.

My question to you is: Is living together for only 3 months while I am on a tourist visa a problem when applying for the 820 visa even if we have been dating over a year? I'm not sure if I can register on her rental lease while on a tourist visa. any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Withdrawn Myself from Visa Application.

Morning Mark,

I have recently withdrawn myself from my ex-partners 820 application (she is on the bridging visa at the moment). We have been separated for a year but I only recently withdrew myself as I had not even thought about it.

I am no longer amicable with my ex, I let her know I had withdrawn myself from the application and she was not pleased. It does not look like she is willing to cooperate with me and fully withdraw the application.

I have spoken to a lawyer and she said that my ex needs to withdraw the application or I could have the 5 year ban imposed on me as the visa will be 'refused' rather than 'withdrawn'.

To make it a bit more complicated I am in a relationship now with a women from overseas so a 5 year ban could pose a problem going forward.

So my questions are:

Will immigration get in touch with my ex letting her know about my withdrawal and she will be given notice to either vacate Aus (within 28 days) or have to look at an alternative visa? (student etc...)

Or

If she does not withdraw the app do they just let it play out with the normal waiting time-frame and then refuse it later?

Am I at risk of being imposed with the 5 year sponsorship ban?

Is there a way to have the application withdrawn without her consent if she is refusing to cooperate?

Thankyou very much in advance Mark,
Andrew

Hello Mark, Hope you are doing great!

Just a small query as did not think of a better person to ask this. Request your answer

I got my PR 190 VISA in April 2016. I came for a one week visa validation trip in August 2016.
We finally came to reside permanently in Jan 2017 and have been in Australia since then barring a few weeks travel to my home country in between

I plan to apply for a contributory parent visa for my mother. And the DIBP website says that one could apply for a contributory parent visa when their kids have stayed in Australia for 2 years.
I am not sure, from when would those two years be counted. Would they be counted when we validated the visa in August 2016 or from Jan 2017, when we came to reside permanently. Request you to clarify please

Kind Regards,

Hi Mark,
I have a specific question that I would love if you can give me an advice.
I have applied to the Graduate visa 485 with my wife as an additional aplicant (both of us are in Australia). I already submitted and I have to upload the documents. I read at the requirements that for people over 18 years old, we have to provide financial dependency, I do not know if that apply for my wife too. It says:

"Evidence of financial dependency for all your family members aged 18 or older (such as evidence of current studies):
- a certified copy of their birth certificate and proof of their relationship to you
- proof that they live in your household
- proof that they have been financially dependent on you for at least the 12 months immediately before you lodge your application."

I do not actually know if I need to do this, I have no idea what is the purpose of this and, finally, if the main idea is to show that my wife is dependent on me or independent (available to dependent on herself).
Any feedback about what to upload?

Regards and many thanks.
