Hey Fran89,

How are you? You must be feeling quite relieved after putting all the documents/visa file together
I don't know how much of what I'm telling you is true for onshore applications; but I think you should wait for your translated Police Clearance i.e. submit as much paperwork as you can. The less paperwork your CO asks for, the quicker you file moves.

I have seen this a lot specially with the offshore 309/100 partner visa applications. Because you are applying onshore in Australia luckily you can also submit the medicals done along with your initial set of documentation.

The offshore applicants (specially from high risk countries have to wait till they get contacted by their CO and have to go to a Panel Doctor which sometimes have a waiting list.

I only had my Medicals left when I submitted my application. A file 7cm thick.

Hope this helps.
Best wishes to you.

Congratulations to you and your partner for the baby

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Becky,

yes it feels much better, I would love to open a bottle sparkling wine, but have to wait, babybelly wouldnīt like it ;-)
I canīt wait for the police check, my visa runs out next week, that means I send the police check a week after my application, I think it should be fine. They have to wait for my medical check anyway, and I donīt think germany counts as a high risk country
My file is about 4cm thick, but I guess, because we will have the baby and we are married and life in australia, we have it a bit easier...hopefully, you never know ;-)
My biggest relieve is, that I will get medicare in the next days and have another year here. The big worry, that they may send me home pregnant without my partner and I canīt have him next to me when I give birth and maybe have to apply offshore is gone with that.

Question Stapled forms

Hello all. My fiancee just lodged a PMV at the VIA center in the Philippines. I carefully assembled the 150+ page app into sections with side on paperclips.

My fiancee said they removed all the paperclips and *stapled* each section!

That was a surprise. Hope the Aus Embassy requested them to do that

I donīt think that is relevant for you application, on the end the only thing what matter is the content!!! Who careīs? They donīt give you a yes or no just because of paperclips and stapled sections....

Hi,

I am from India and applying under 190 visa class. I am married for past 4 years and we are a family of three. I am still at applying for EOI and was confussed over a point, whether I include my family (2 dependants) now or can I do it in a later stage. If I do it in the later stage what will be the process of getting it done? I can apply for my visa presently and ask my family to follow in later times also. Do we have some restrictions to this process? Kindly reply whosoever knows the answer to this jigsaw.

Hey Fran89,

I guess you are in a safer position cause Germany is a low risk country plus you have a baby on the way.
I highly doubt they will send you to Germany during your visa processing unless there are any complications.
DIAC will just wait for your medicals to clear cause you won't be able to get your chest X-Ray done cause you are pregnant.
Nothing to worry about. It's just for the safety of your baby.


Speaking from my experience, I wasn't contacted by the department and after four months of my application in which they rejected my application cause they didn't think my husband and I were in a "genuine/ongoing relationship". No emails, no contact made by the CO requesting additional documents; just a decision and that too was sent in the mail as in a letter.
I didn't even have enough time to apply to MRT for a review and had to leave Australia.

So be vigilant and stay in touch with the immigration department.
Hope everything goes smoothly for you and your partner. My best wishes and prayers are with you. Once you apply for your Partner Visa, try and stay in touch with the DIAC for precautionary reasons.

If you have any queries don't hesitate to write.
Have a nice day.

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Fran89,

The table of contents looks pretty well done.
Just make sure that everything is in order.
That is a lot of evidence you have which is great. The more, the better.
My file was 7cm thick and about 250 pages.
Also quality is better than quantity.
If there is quality in the quantity of the evidence you are submitting, you are pretty much submitting a decision ready file. The less work a CO has to do trying to organise the documents, the better.

PS- don't use staples, only paper clips. My application there was no staples. The VFS office operator stapled the ID documents of me and my husband the rest of the file was sent in the order of my table of contents.
Hope this helps.

Good luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

I have submitted my partner visa application today in Bangladesh. I think different countries work differently. I decided to arrange my evidence based on the checklist posted on VFS's local website that it seems the local agent here for accepting Australian visa application. After telling them my visa type at the counter they pulled out their own checklist, which is a bit different than their posted checklist, and asked me to give them papers one by one. So, they first said 47SP and i give it to them. It went like that. I also used paper clips instead of staples. But they were either stapling my papers or leaving them loose. They also seemed very allergic to accepting original papers apart from police certificate. For example, I have my wedding invitation cards, movie tickets, receipts etc but i have to submit photocopy of them as they did not accept original. I found this a bit strange. Another thing was even though I have certified my passport photocopy, they again copied it including visa stamps of other countries. It could be because I photocopied first five pages based on their posted checklist guideline.

Outside the checklist guideline they asked for rent agreement of my wife's house which I did not have and they seemed not to mind about it. They also asked for e-mail conversation but I submitted phone bill and snap shot of skype and whatsapp conversation.

Even though I used table of contents for evidence, I was thankful I used post it notes to explain things. Cause papers were arranged not on the basis of my table of contents.

So this was my experience. Hope it was helpful. And thank you all for your wonderful posts that were very helpful to me.

I submitted my application yesterday and today the high commission sent me an e-mail providing me with a HAP ID for the medical. A bit surprised with fast response but maybe that is how they are till the medical in Bangladesh and then it is the usual waiting game.
