The message I got from DIAC in London was NOT to send electronic media.

The CO will only have to probably read them and print them out, so you are adding to their work so you won't make friends with them. I'd sent printouts. How long can a phone record be!

Has anyone else included info on CD/DVD and DIAC have been ok with this?
Ya the only info i've read on this is from the 820-801 Checklist
http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/_pdf...-checklist.pdf
On page 3 it says no computer disks. Although this list is from May 2012 so I dunno how applicable it is.
Best to call DIAC to be sure.

Thanks for the info kmmr and Pxer.

I have sent an email to DIAC in Jakarta to confirm but I think I will avoid the disk given what it written in that checklist from 2012. The phone records are apprx 10pages per month for 2.5yrs so it's quite a bit of paper - and that doesn't include Skype records so think I'll just print a few and include a statement to say I can provide more if necessary.

Np. Yah I don't think they'd like it if you sent hundreds of pages of phone records. I'd say 1 or 2 correspondences per month- with concentration on the past year- to show you guys were in contact over the years. Maybe a nice mix of Skype, phone records, e-mails or however you kept in contact. But that's just my opinion. I'm no migration agent.

Since you have all the records, why don't you make some kind of table of them. So for each month put eg.
Nov 2010: 10 Skpe calls, 27 Whatsapp messages, 4 phone calls
Dec 2010: 4 Skype call, 12 Whatsapp, 3 Phone calls (details attached)
etc.

I'd include the full summary page and say you have the records if requested, but include a few of the records for key dates. I would include 2.5 years ago, 1.5 years ago, and a few recent ones. Do you have them for 3 years? It's helpful if you can show three years.

Thanks for the idea about the table kmmr - that should make it easier for them. We have only been together for 2.5yrs so no I don't have records from 3yrs ago.

I actually received a reply from immi today saying it ok to send the information on a computer disk (obviously this may be different for other offices but this was Jakarta) so I think I will just provide a hard copy of the table and save all the actual records to a disk in case they want to view details.

Thanks again

I am not sure if you saw it but I posted about this earlier in the week, we lodged last week at the Australian Embassy in Buenos Aires for a partner defacto visa (309) for my Argentine girlfriend.

At the Embassy, the girl at the visa desk (who is actually our case officer) actually suggested to us to put together a CD when we went a week earlier to ask some questions and get certifications done. She actually said how much she loves seeing photos and suggested the CD which really surprised me given what I had read.

My suggestion would be to get in touch with the embassy because each seems to have their own specific requirements and preferences and although they may not give information they also may.

Good luck!!

Hi guys!!

My husband and I have been trying to get out partner visa 309 & 100 ready. It took us a month and a half to get everything together.
I have been reading all the posts on this thread and would like to thank everyone for their tips and advice as to how we should present our file.
After having our file rejected once (losing $3000) because of lack of evidence to prove that our relationship was genuine, we tried to be as clear as possible in presenting our evidence.
Our application was 7cm thick :-/
We put everything that we thought had a relationship to our case. We put evidence like flow charts, letters from our land lords, our Facebook account print screens, etc.

So finally we submitted our visa application today. Paid $2680 for the application again :-/
Freaking out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm from India an my husband is an Australian citizen. We were told that it will take 7 months to process the application. I'm very scared after having read a few posts, some people on here have been waiting for their applications to get approved and have been separated from their loved ones for months and some even years.

This is my profile:-

Application submitted- July 19th, 2013

Application submission centre- VFS Global Pvt Ltd, New Delhi.

Nationality- Indian

Husband/Sponsor- Australian Citizen

National police checks from India and Australia- Submitted July 19th, 2013

Medicals submitted- TBA

Case officer assigned- TBA

Visa Granted- TBA

I would just like to thank everyone for sharing their experiences and knowledge regarding how to prepare the application. All this advice has helped us in an indescribable way.

I really hope to hear something back from the High Commission soon. Hope our application gets approved this time. Good luck to everyone!

Let the painful wait begin!!

Kind Regards,
Becky
