Hi Miss Swan,

I feel your pain and anxiety. I know how it feels.

Is the PC, the only thing you are missing? Why not lodge your application and get the ball rolling and wait to be asked for the PC? You can then explain to your CO, that you are onto it and are waiting for the information. Alternatively, the CO may come up with an idea as to how you can obtain the PC quickly. Seems like such a shame to hold up your application, over one piece of missing information.

Does anyone else reading this thread, have any ideas???

Hugs to you, Miss Swan. Hang in there.

Thanks LovingWife, you've been so encouraging and supportive! I'd say the PCCs are one of the very few documents left pending. I've worked very hard at collecting the relationship evidence. Yeah you're right, I should actually wait for my CO's advice when I've lodged the application, and explain to her what I've found out and see what the CO can advise.

When I asked other Oz expats in a forum who were living in China about this couple of years back, they acknowledged that this is a near-to-impossible task and I should explain this to the CO who should have knowledge that it's really hard to produce PCCs from certain countries.

That's the spirit, Miss Swan!

Keep being optimistic. It's the only way.

Ooooh so you mean my neatly file-fastened paper pack with smiley faces and arrows will be ripped yeah? hahahah, just kidding... I was tempted to make some form of sense of the bits and bobs, I will now just stack and submit in the simplest way. I guess they will need to dissect and sift through so... Thanks for the invaluable insight, and giggles :-)

We are organising our pmv. Should the paperwork be in chronological order from beginning of relationship or in order of the checklist? Is it worth including chat conversations between the two of us also?

Videos ?

Hello...

Been following this thread ... I plan to apply for a PMV in September and as a proof I have few photos and few video footages of us together.

I am not sure how I can show the videos to the CO...as I believe the video footage is very important and shows how much we want to be together and its a genuine proof.

Will uploading the same in a private youtoube like and write down the link on the application do ?

Or can I send the video file on a CD or DVD ? The video is a big evidence that me and my partner has met and spend some time together.

Thanks,

It's entirely up to you, whether you want to present your paperwork in chronological order or not. The CO will pull everything apart anyway as they have their own filing systems.

I DID include all of our chat conversations & sms messages and do believe that this information undoubtedly proved that our relationship was genuine.

Good luck!

Does anyone know of another option?
Unfortunately, there are only these two options: a tourist visa or a partner visa.
A partner visa (309 partner visa - Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100)) is perhaps even a better option than a tourist visa. It does mean spending a bit of money now, but in the long run it'll save you a lot of hassle and probably money as well.

I am lodging my partner visa tomorrow after MONTHS of hard work and stress...what a relief!! I'm just wondering how exactly to present the application, I understand folders are to be avoided as immigration seem to have their own filing processes. Im just worried that if i hand the application over as it is, things will go missing...does it get placed into an envelope of some sort?? Also, my application is around 10cm thick - i hope this isnt too much, ive included as much as I can whilst trying not to overdo it! Its fairly hard to find the balance in doing this!.... any last minute tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hi lili2,

We just lodged my husband's application a week ago, and ours was also 10cm thick and weighed about 2kg!

The guy who processed us checked it all out, put an identity number sticker on the 47SP form and something else, and then put it all into a long, clear, (sturdy) plastic envelope.

We had just a stack of paper with every separate section (i.e. forms, financial aspects, nature of household, periods of separation, etc.) held together by bulldog clips, and when he put everything into the envelope he messed up the order of our sections! I didn't say anything at the time and really regret it now, so keep a close eye on it that it's sitting exactly the way you want it when your future case officer takes it out the first time.
