You guys have three options:

- PMV
- partner offshore 309 visa (after getting married to you)
- partner onshore 820 visa (and the bridging visa has no work restrictions)

In order to get married in Australia, she doesn't have to apply for any special tourist visa, the ETA visa is granted really quickly (online) and enables the holder to stay in Australia for up to three months at the time (but is valid for a year).

Still, in my opinion PMV seems a good way to go...
Yeah, she is of a Canadian citizenship by grant, along with her family but lives and works in Dubai.

So we can still get married here in Aus, she goes back to Dubai, applies for a partner offshore visa.

Thats why I mentioned, that when she is here, I would open a joint account in our name, my forms for super are almost filled out with her being the beneficiary on it.

And plus when she is here, I would have her on the bills I pay, so I was hoping things would get a little bit easy.

Things do look a little bit more positive for me

Can I suggest you use the checklist on the 47SP as a Table of Contents?
Consider numbering each checkbox and then clipping a small card on each bundle of docs, with a number referenced to the checkbox. My fiance did that with her application and made a very ordered bundle.


Are your relationship statements, statutory declarations? A stat dec witnessed and signed by a notary, then becomes a legal statement that is more acceptable.

May I also suggest you have medical checks done and submitted as well?
Even if they're not required, at least it may save you weeks or months of waiting.

Hello all.

I had my 820 approved on 4/1 and I just submitted my application using A4 paper folded in half to divide the different sections and the checklist at the front as the 'contents'. I wouldn't bother going to toooo much trouble organising it all as ultimately they just want the necessary items displayed in a way that is as easy as possible.

People who submit more than 2 stat decs and millions of photos may think they're doing a good thing, but from my experience and others who have applied I think this is a hindrance rather than a help.

Im new to the forum. Need some advise. I've read a lot of the visa advice on these forums and my general impression was that my partner and I wouldn't have enough evidence for de facto visa.
Im in Malaysia and my partner is in Australia (he's an australian citizen)
Met in 2010 thru my best friend while he was on holiday here in Malaysia and we have been together for two years now.
We kept in touch thru skype, whatsapp, facebook and him coming to visit me in Malaysia occasionally plus me visiting him in Australia using ETA.
We have photos (taken with families and friends).
Im too old to be getting the working holiday visa as well.
Would appreciate if anyone could give me advise on this.
Thanks in advance.

Just a note to all, I've just had my spouse visa approved (subclass 100, Lodged in London and processed in 4.5months) and we didn't put in any emails/facebook logs at all. We did have a few pics of us together over the years but we focused more on the joint mail from other avenues,e.g. joint credit cards, car insurance policies, wills, lease agreements, house insurance policies, joint travel bookings and obviously a few decs from people that have known us throughout the relationship. We are married with kids and so I didn't feel a need to include a long list of private conversations - and I don't think it held us back in any way. Just a tip so people don't feel they HAVE to include these logs, although obviously they are useful for people who have to spend long periods apart

You wouldn't be able to apply for a defacto visa however I believe that if you intend to have a long and lasting relationship you could apply for a PMV, providing you get engaged and married within 9months I think. I don't know for sure the timeframe but I believe this would be an option for you.

DIAC has provided the best table of contents.
Use the checklist on the 47SP.
Put all your documentation in the same order as the checklist, and that will be an ideal TOC.

Not sure which visa you've applied for, but try
