My husband and I lodged his partner application in person after making an appointment and we had an interview straight away. I had taken a lot of time making my own contents page, but the CO didn't look at it, and sorted through the evidence, making notes on certain documents about what they were and circling certain things on some documents for her own reference later. I had used paper clips to keep everything together, but she later took them off the application forms and stapled them herself.

So, the lesson I learned is don't spend too much time in presentation. As long as everything is clear and in some kind of order (maybe using the checklist from the DIAC site) when submitted. The CO is just going to pull it all appart and place in whatever order makes sense to them.

Also, it's better to include too much evidence than not enough. Our CO handed some things back that she didn't even look at, like our cards to eachother as well as a couple of our bank passbooks. She also took copies of our lease contracts since they were originals so that we could keep them.

Neat and tidy, easy to understand does the trick!

We presented ours in an accordion type file, arranged in order of the checklist. I labelled each divider with a sticky label and wrote on them each checklist heading, so it was easy to understand. Eg; Form 47sp, Evidence of Relationship (Shared bills), Evidence of Relationship (Shared travel), Health Check, Police Check, Birth Certificates...

We handed it in on Friday 3/6/11 after lunch and got our approval on Monday 6/6/11 !!!

Practically only one business day!!!

I was so happy I cried when my boyfriend showed me the approval letter!

Like most people have said in previous threads, the visa office is not looking for some extravagant compilation; whilst collecting all the information we separated all our documentation and evidence into folders with plastic pockets, which we took to the visa office. They then transfer it into a "manila type" folder

We not only used the checklist included with the 47SP form, we included an extra checklist found on the official Australian visa website, and we made our own coversheets; split into 3 sections: application documentation, evidence, and telphone records (we put this into its own category because we had alot of phone records). We held everything together with those black "foldback clips". We provided 40 photos with the application in the simple paper packet we'd received the photos in from the photo developer.

I'd say overall our application was around 7-10cm thick of stacked papers.

Remember to order everything according to the order outlined in the 47SP checklist

Wanderer,
Can our written statements be typed out and signed by hand?
And also Sydney's immi offices are advising me to post them instead of
sending them to the offices personally, My Partner's Student visa expires in the next 2 months do you think i'll receive my partner's bridging visa in time?

Thankyou for giving us direction,

Mike.

Yes, you can type them out and sign by hand, that's fine.
They do prefer that you send in the application by post, but you don't have to. I went there in person because my husband's visa was expiring the following day, and they issued a Bridging visa on the spot.

As long as you put your application in the post at least 2 weeks before your partner's student visa expires, then the Bridging visa will be issued in time. Still, if you want to go in person just go.
