Question for old applicants, especially those applying to Berlin : I feel that my wife and I may not have not sent in enough evidence of a genuine relationship. We sent in the minimum stuff required on the forms, but Im concerned now that I could have been more. Would you advise sending in additional evidence of a genuine relationship even if we have not been assigned a CO yet? Thanks in advance!

Jager that is a tricky one. If im not wrong, the sponsor should also in a certified copy of his passport and evidence of australian citizenship / pr.

My partner and I had been apart for months on months, but this is a sacrifice we were prepared to make to be together. The process is lengthy but working thoroughly through the paper work and doing your homework online. make a few phone calls if you unsure... It is all worth it in the end. . Its tough, I know because I have been there. Once the wait is over you two will never be apart.
Suarez and Gerrywins : my wife called the London hotline. They said once you hear from your CO, you can and should contact him / her to arrange travel on a visitor's visa. get a return ticket. you need to be offshore in order for the 309 (or whichever you applied for) visa to be activated. Offshore can also be NZ. We were also advised that it may be better to spend less time apart if you can otherwise the CO may suspect a non-genuine relationship.

We put our application in the exact order of the checklist titled -
Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent
(Subclasses 309 and 100)
Application Document Checklist

We used no paper clips or staples as suggested and divided each section with pieces of A4 paper folded in half with a Title and brief description of whats inside. i.e;
Financial evidence
Credit card statement (highlighted and commented on relevant purchases)

We don't have a joint bank account but we did have transfers to one another via paypal so we printed off statements and we were living in Italy and My partner was using my account and we had evidence of her depositing money into it etc.

We had separate sections for Finance, Proof of co-habitation, Travel and Holidays etc all divided with A4 paper folded in half around each section and titled.

It ended up looking really tidy and easy to understand in our opinions but i guess we'll see how it all goes and if it makes a difference presenting it well.

I strongly suggest you follow the checklist though and present it in that order.

All the best!

Ah! The A4 paper was a great idea! I did a sort of Table of Contents before the identifying documentation like the copy of passport, marriage cert, etc and then a separate Table of Contents for the evidence of our relationship. The wait after sending everything is seriously the killer lol.

Just make sure to provide a ToC of what you provide and I would also do a cover letter explaining that you are "sending more evidence because you want to make sure there is no question about your relationship blah blah". Make sure to identify yourself with full name, date of birth, and file number if you have it. I also put my CO's name, just in case, when I sent in extra paperwork.

Thanks Vyktoria! We dont have a CO yet, so we will keep the stuff ready until the CO gives his / her initial feedback. Then we will send it along with TOC and the works . Want to also keep communication to the minimum this way as Berlin seems to be overloaded. but thanks for your reply.
