It's supposed to make you feel a little better about your personal information and DIAC. Your CO's discussing your personal situation with your boss is not allowed.

There are certain visas that allow people to migrate here with business visas. Look at the DIAC site at immi.gov.au.

You will need very detailed business plans and other dicuments to show your business is viable and will contribute to the economy, employing locals etc

Hi all.

In response to the original thread topic, we compiled our documents in a folder for our own reference and when all the documents were in order, we took them out and literally bundled the big stack of papers with some string, like a manuscript. We stuck it into a plastic sleeve and sticky taped it up and put it into an A4 box with the return pre-paid envelope that the London office asks for so your CO can return your original documents.

We stuck our photos onto A4 pieces of cardboard and these were returned to us about a week after.

Immi clearly have their own process of sorting through your documents and deciding what they need, so I think dividers and anything fancy would be a waste of time.

I can second your comment about putting things in files and folders. We put all our papers in a huge envelope and the CO went through each one, writing her own notes on them as to what they refer to. She then piled them up in her own order and groupings.

Maybe a sticky note on each one, especially translated papers, is a good idea to save time for the CO.

Hi all . Yes, to keep this thread on its original topic, we applied and originally had all the paperwork separated into tabs and placed into a large lever-arch folder...everything was cross referenced (photos/emails etc to the statement of relationship made by us!) we only included about 10 pictures taken over the course of the last 2 years - on holidays together/in social situations etc.
When we submitted our case - they took all the pages out of the folder and just bundled it all together ( keeping it separated by the tabs for the different sections)
We were very thorough as we were in a position where we didn't have rental agreements, phone bills etc to prove our relationship as our company provided all of this as part of our work contract - so we had to do a lot more work in providing the proof- we used 12 stat decs in total - 8 from out work colleagues and bosses to confirm that we had been in a committed relationship for the last two years and that they knew we had been co-habitating. We also had our relationship recognised in Australia by registering it as a civil partnership before we applied for our visa.
We knew that police checks etc would be asked for - so we got these arranged so that when they were asked for, we were already prepared which helped greatly. All in all it took us just under 3 months to have our application processed.
Our case officer was lovely and we couldn't have been treated more fairly or nicely by her.
On a separate note - before we applied, we called a migration agency who told us that we had a weak case and would have a high rate of failure and that they would not have taken on our case if we wanted them to!!! Yet we applied by ourselves directly without using an agent at all and had everything approved very quickly...

The o ly advise I can give is to be be very honest and detailed in your application. My statement of relationship was only 9 pages long - my partners was just a few short of this too. In total, when we were approved our case worker said that our application was 300 pages ( which included copies of phone statements, joint bank statements, screen shots of text messages from phones/ Skype / Facebook etc - so make sure that what you give is to the point - they don't want to have to sort thought of much.
And by the way - all c/is and agents must abide by the confidentiality clauses overseas just as they would in Australia - so don't get stressed about bosses finding out about sexual preferences etc....

Hope this info is of help to someone out there a I know how hard it is to wait and be apart from your loved one - but put in the effort from the start, be patient and prepared and it should all come out positive! It did for us - we are so happy to be starting our life again and doing it in Australia

We put small sticky notes with numbers on each of our documents and had a numbered list as part of our cover letter divided up into separate sections, in an effort to make it easier for our CO. If it was annoying for them, they were very easy to remove and discard.

Everything was bound together with paper clips, and each section was then bundled together with massive paper clips that my wife somehow managed to find somewhere sometime. They were awesome! We were gonna go with folders for each section but decided not to go that route, as we heard bad things about it.

Just thought I would let you know what I did.
Got approved within 2 weeks so it must have been okay :-)

I didnt have any cover letter and used only one paperclip to attach the passport photos to the checklist.
Then I made a table of contents folowed by all the forms and evidence. I put them into sectons and put each section in one paper which is folded in half. On this I wrote the title eg. "Social context of the relationship"
I put everything on a pile and put a string around it. I stuck pink sticky note on top saying "decision ready application". Obviously everything, every form and police certificate and what not was provided.
I provided NATI translations for official documents but only my own transaltions for unofficial things (eg postcards from home, in german)

At the time I applied for the 820 onshore we were in a de facto relationship for 12,5 or 13 months.

If anyone is interested I could post a picture or my table of contents or answere other questions. Dont whether to do that here or in an own thread.
