De Facto Question Re Living Situation

Hi All,

My partner (french) and I (british) are hoping to emigrate to Australia based on my partners skills. We have been researching what we will require to prove that we are in a de facto relationship. We have been together 4 and half years after meeting in Scotland in 2006, and then in 2008 my partner moved with work to the United Arab Emirates. I moved to be with him 8 months later and we have since been here for over 2 years. The issue is because the UAE is a muslim country we are unable to live together without being married and therefore do not meet the 12 month minimal requirement.

I have read on the immi website that there is a waiver that exists for same sex couples who can not live together in countries with these laws, does anyone know whether this waiver will extend to couples of the opposite sex in the same position?

Thanks for any info!

That's an interesting scenario Katrina and you wonder whether the government relaxes thier laws for unmarried couples arranging holidays for without doing so you'd expect they would be restricting their market.
But anyway, in the first instance I'd pop along to the UAE Consul General and see if the locals can advise - Oceania - Contact Us
Failing any satisfaction there you could send an enquiry to the Global Feedback Unit, details for which you will also find under the Contact heading.
