Hello,

I need one more info,

i have BE degree in civil engineering and 6 + experience in automation testing. I have applied for software tester code. The experience certificates which i have provided are reflecting testing roles and responsibilities.

Is there any concern that, BE degree subject and skill code should match ?

This is one and only big worry in my mind.

Hi Sonkos,

I felt relieved to read your post Mainly because I don't know how to write a cover letter for my 820 application! Hahaha..

It's great to know that at least 1 person didn't put in a cover letter and still received approval! I will go spend my time on other matters now, like shortening my chat history log from 100 pages to something less..

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.

This sticky has really been helpful for me.

I will be getting engaged here in Aus, I met my partner in December and have been chatting to eat other since October this year.

We will be getting married in September next year, and I was wondering, since I live with my parents, to provide relationship evidence this is what I am planning to do ( please let me know if I am doing this right) :

History of your relationship - Stat written decs both from my partner and myself outling our relationship

• financial aspects - Will be opening joint accounts here in Aus, will try my best to do it when she isnt here with me, or worst case scenario, open it here when she will be here for the engagement. BUT she wont have any tax file number, what implications will that cause, I have a tax file number as I am working.

The nature of the household - How can I prove this, when I live with my parents here in Aus and she lives with her parents in Dubai. I have car rego/phone bill in my name and my car insurance on my name - I can get these changed over to her name too, and put her on my SUPER beneficiary too.

Correspondence addressed to both you and your partner at the same address - Im assuming bank statements mailed to her in Dubai and to me in Aus, is this right. Are there any more examples of this criteria?

Social context of the relationship - I think for this a certified registered marriage cert in Dubai and a registered engagement certificate here in Aus should be enough??

The nature of your commitment to each other - phone calls/chats etc and maybe prepare the terms of wills before marriage - any comments on this

What else could I use to provide more evidence about our relationship that I might not have included above?

And lastly, is it worth submitting the documents AFTER I get engaged here in Aus and AFTER knowing the exact date of marriage with my partner, these forms will be submitted/lodged in Dubai.

Thanks

What visa do you have in mind? A prospective marriage visa or a partner visa? Based on your evidence, a prospective marriage visa would be the best solution for you.

Regarding a joint account as evidence: there's no point in having a joint account when both of you aren't using it. She already has her bank account and you have your bank account, so why don't you guys start transferring the money between your accounts already? The Partner Migration booklet doesn't say you must have a joint account; having a joint account is just one of the best ways to prove shared financial affairs, but you can do that with separate accounts as well.

The nature of your household: it's all on your name, isn't it; in general, you need to live together, share the responsibilities (if you're applying for 309 or 820 partner visa), at least at one point in your relationship.

Wills are excellent evidence of future commitment, certainly do that.


Considering there are a lot of rejected applications from Arab countries, your application needs to be as solid as possible. Where will the engagement party be, will she fly to Australia for an engagement party? That would be great and you could really open a joint account together when she's visiting - by the way, the bank doesn't ask for a TFN, she won't need it.

You can also add her as a nominated driver on your car policy (you just call the insurance company and change that) and name her as your superannuation beneficiary. You can do that now already or when she gets to Australia.

I think the PMV is your best option, but with heaps of evidence so DIAC has no chance saying your relationship is not genuine.

We will be getting married in Dubai, but engaged here in Australia. I was thinking of collecting all the evidence NOW, and then after I get married in Dubai, apply for a partner visa. Is this correct?

Oh ok cool, I didn't know that, but I'm thinking if I still have a joint account here in Aus, I guess I that would also help.

The nature of your household: it's all on your name, isn't it; in general, you need to live together, share the responsibilities (if you're applying for 309 or 820 partner visa), at least at one point in your relationship.

Nope, I live with my parents here in Aus and she lives with her parents in Dubai. How can we share responsibilities in a long distance relationship when we aren't even both together yet?

Wills are excellent evidence of future commitment, certainly do that.

Should I get a will made up here or in Dubai after my marriage?

The engagement will be here in Aus, and the marriage will then be in Aus, when myself and my family fly to Dubai.

Yup I can certainly do that very soon.

I have been reading a partner visa would be a better option since the marraige will take place outside Aus, and I will start collecting evidence NOW.

Please suggest.


Thanks alot

Edit: What about the following:

Correspondence addressed to both you and your partner at the same address - Im assuming bank statements mailed to her in Dubai and to me in Aus, is this right. Are there any more examples of this criteria?

Im not a 100% sure what this means or relates to.

NO the same address means the same address, bank statements mailed to you when living together at the same location, address....
