Smile Partner / spouse visa

Hey,
I and my partner are in the waiting stages of being awarded a spouse visa. We included lots of official information as well as colour photographs. We avoided using folders etc. and just divided the info we had into categories i.e. house, vehicle, holidays, photos and other (invites and cards) with a folded piece of A4 paper with the appropriate label. Our case officer has told us it is a strong application. I obtained a permanent residency visa before I met him and didn't go - my visa ends in april 2014 and we're hoping to go in jan....with notice periods being given in at work we are cutting it pretty fine! official processing times on the immi website are 8-9 months....anyone been granted one sooner...here's hoping!! good luck with the applications people!

It's highly unlikely that your visa will be granted sooner if you're applying offshore from the UK. They generally will hold onto applications until they hit 8 months because of quotas they have. You'll see the rare visa here and there get through in, say 7.5 months, but that's not very common.

Hi there,

Another practical question, we typed our history of the relationship declarations and some other declarations. Can I print the satutory declaration template and attach it to our declarations instead of trying to insert our text into it?

You don't need to use the statutory declaration template at all. You can write your own statements on plain paper.

Hello, I was just wondering if I should certify my statutory declaration? I mean, it's me who's applying for visa and of course if I sign it it's my letter! My fiancé is in Australia right now and of course he's gonna certify his and it's so easy to do it over there. On the other hand, I live in Belgium and basically you can't just go anywhere ex. the post office etc. The only place I can think of is an Australian embassy which we don't have here in Brussels , or have city municipality to do it and for some reason they are not so keen on doing this for "unofficial documents" especially just some letters you've written in English! On the top of all that any little paper costs 8€ here.. I'm willing to pay, that's no issue but the problem is I don't think they are going to do it! Can a lawyer certify it? Any suggestions from people from European countries will be more than welcome
