Hi,huggoo

Thanks for ur useful information. My husband is going to submit his partner visa application in Tokyo, but he has his ETA visa as well.

Can he come to visit me after his lodge ? What's that activation mean ?
If he happen to in AUS with me at that time, can he fly to NZ for visa activation ? Or need to return back to Tokyo ??

hi kissxun, short answer is- he should be able to, but please check with your case officer. In practice, it appears that one does not need to wait for a offshore visa to be issued before joining the partner. a tourist visa for the initial months can suffice. But a risk of being sent back may occur if a one-way ticket is used to travel on the tourist visa. ACtivation means that your visa is "set to valid" by the DIAC before you enter Au. If your partner is on tourist visa while in AU, he can fly to NZ / whereever when he hears from Case officer that visa is granted. Once overseas he needs to inform case officer that he is overseas, then the activitation of the visa by the case officer can be carried out. hope this helps?

Thanks for ur quick response again.

Yes, we definitely will buy a return ticket for his coming visit. And we won't mind to fly out anywhere to let the visa activated .

We only worry about whether his oversea travel will delay his partner visa application ? Sorry for so many questions...

Thumbs up Neat and Tidy

I just posted my documents for the 2nd stage 309/100 visa.

I made a Table of Contents sheet on top, then had the DIAC checklist next. My evidence was in order based on the checklist.

I did number each document, and list each document on the ToC. This was not really for DIAC - it was for me, to make sure I put everything in the packet that was needed!

I had 10 pictures, printed two per page, to support our "relationship in a social context".

I did slide my documents into a plastic sleeve before putting them into the envelope provided by DIAC. It's rainy season here on the Gold Coast, and I did not want to risk anything getting wet or torn!

No paper clips, and staples only for the checklist and stat decs.

Now for the wait....

Susan

kissxun i would check with the CO. We were told by the hotline in london to apply for partner visa first, then wait for contact with CO, and then advise him / her that we intend to travel on tourist visa to oz to be with our partner.

Please update your flag here .

hi,

the applicant must be in the country where he lodge his application, so your partner should definitely go back.

regards

It depends on if that particular embassy needs your passport after the grant. If your visa will be electronic then you don't need to be in the country where you applied. You just have to be offshore. If the embassy needs your passport it off course would be easier and safer to travel back to your own country.
