Hi Mish,

Thanks for your reply. Oh.. hoping they are processing faster now! (sorry you guys had to go through longer waiting periods though)

RE: Form 80, yes, my partner has lived outside of Morocco for about 6 months. He was meeting me in Malaysia at the time and doing some voluntary work there. He also has qualifications in religious sciences, so I guess they're wanting to make sure that he's the peace loving Moroccan I know him to be

With regards to wanting the lawyer advice letter.. I know!!! I think it's the first time my agent has ever heard of them asking for that. They just wanted to make sure we applied for the right visa. My agent had initially advised us not to get a civil marriage outside of Australia, stating that PMV was easier (I wish I hadn't listened back then). I guess the issue was that we live together (and required the nikkah to allow for cohabitation) and are socially known as 'married in the eyes of God' amongst our friends and families (Facebook evidence etc).. but just hoping to have the civil ceremony and a small reception amongst our family and loved one's in Australia. That will be the 'real' beginning for us. Our application had so much evidence, I guess it could have just been a straight up partner visa application if it weren't for the issue of the nikkah being legally invalid in the Island we had the ceremony in. If it had happened in Egypt or Morocco... I guess the situation would have been different. I'd have just got it all converted and saved a lot of future headache... we live and learn....

SY didn't mention specifics but I guess she just wanted updated ongoing relationship evidence, evidence of living together, hotel bookings, photos of us and family, Eid celebrations, apartment photos etc... since I've been in Morocco with my partner from early August. She also wanted a change in circumstances form to be completed (I totally forgot about that and agent didn't remind me, from when I left Australia to be with him and we started renting an apartment in Morocco). All of the above has been given to her.. so we're just waiting on the lawyer advice letter now. Once that gets sent to her within the 28 day period... I guess we just keep on waiting.....

Guys, I have a question with regards to the 'signing of the stat dec'. I hadn't been informed of that step in this process by my agent. Is that stat dec a totally separate form that will be emailed out to my partner when the time is right? I guess it would be nice to know a bit more about it. I take it from previous posts.. it's a sign of some light at the end of the tunnel?

Malaysia doesn't seem high risk for a form 80 either. I am guessing rules have changed which would not surprise me with the issues happening at the moment.

Hopefully you don't need to wait along time. If ours was shorter I could have had the valentine's day wedding .

The stat dec that you have read about I have only seen done in Sudan.

It sounds like what SY is asking for is the same as what she asks the Egyptians to bring to their interview.

I think we all forget to let them know about change in circumstances. We forgot to tell SY that my husband (then fiancÚ) had changed jobs.

Also incase you aren't aware once your fiancÚ and you are married and his 820 is approved he can go to free English courses if he wants to. I just thought I would mention it as alot of us don't realise this is an option.

I thought the english lessons were only considered once the 801 was granted? My workmates wife was only allowed to do them once her 801 was granted?
If my wife can get them once our PMV becomes the 820 would be fantastic.

As once the 820 is granted your wife can do them . I think they allow 1 or 2 weeks at the beginning of the term where you can join late after that you need to wait until the next term. Your wife (or you can do it) just rings up the contact number for your area and then she goes and does some testing so they can see what level she is at. Some places have full time and part time options others only have full time options.

Hey all,
Thought I would just check in and see how everyone waiting application process is going. We still have not had any updates and no interview scheduled�� I have gone a whole month trying not to think about it all and having the 2 children has been keeping me busy but had a lovely dream about being home for Christmas last night so can't get the visa off my mind today

Hi Becks,

I just noticed that we both submitted our applications around the same time. You can read up on how things have travelled for us so far in my previous posts. I guess things happen quite randomly. I submitted the requested documents to my agent today and hopefully they'll pass on to the case officer asap. Then we have more waiting... Maybe you might not even need an interview. Good luck and I hope your dream comes true! Would be awesome if that happened for the rest of the June applications too
