Noone can guarantee that you will be granted a visa they can just prepare the best application possible. Is the agent you saw MARA?

The degree qualification assessment is done by NOOSR.

The PMV you only need to show that you are in a genuine relationship, met in person since turning 18 and will marry within 9 months.

The de facto visa has 4 categories that you need to assess like financial, social, household etc.

Things like financial and household are very hard to address when you do not live together on a regular basis and has not been long.

Having a joint account is all good but you need to use it like buying groceries etc and you both need to use it.

There are a couple of migration agents on this forum. I strongly advise you do a consulting session with either of them and they will let you know what they think.

I thought this would be the case. I've looked at the partner visa booklet on detail many times but still feel a little unsure about how much evidence we need to have a strong case when we don't live together. From the advice I've got so far I'm guessing our besr options are to apply for the prospective marriage visa or him to come here on a tourist visa, not work for 6 months or so and make sure we have enough evidence and time together.

It was Sydney Migration International. I figured that as we had our relationship registered and that waives the 12 month living together requirement then you wouldn't need to prove the 'nature of the household' and 'financial' aspects as much, but obviously this isn't the case.

The consult with the migration agents sounds like exactly what we need. How do I find them on here?

Thanks so much

MarkNortham and CCMS, you can send them a PM or look them up and go to their website. Either way should work.

All registering does is waive the 12 months you still need evidence. It is the same as people who think that they will get a visa just because they are married. The DIBP will still look at what evidence you have.

It is alot of money to pay and get it rejected.

I agree, it's a lot of money and that's why we want to make sure we have the best chance possible and not rush into it. I will have a chat to Mark Northam. Thanks for your help with this

A word of warning, if he applies for a tourist visa be careful about mentioning your relationship. It can mean a refusal due to a possibility he may not return, do some research on that first.

Regarding onshore partner visa via a tourist visa, you need to be aware that his tourist visa might have a "No Further Stay" restriction, which means he then cannot lodge onshore partner visa application. There is no way to find out whether the DIBP will impose a NFS restriction on his visa until he apply for the tourist visa.

If they don't mention it then may have problems with a partner visa when they have not said they are partners. DIBP has access to all visa applications. If not declared on a tourist visa application it could question if it is a genuine relationship.

Oh really? I don't want to say that we are not in a relationship though because we are and it may work against us if we apply for a partner visa in the future if they look at the records. I think honesty is the best policy here. If worst came to worst we would just have to apply offshore when the time came if the had the no further stay restriction. Thanks for the tip
