not enough evidence for defacto visa, will applying for a student visa be questioned?

Hello All,

I have previously asked questiosn reguarding a de facto visa as i have been with my partner for nearly 3 years however i dont feel we have enough evidence in reguards to living together for the case officer to not have any doubts about our relationship. My partner has expressed his desire to study should it help him attain a better job within Australia. I have looked into a hospitality tafe course in victoria and i think he would be able to apply for it albeit it being a quite expensive course because he is classed as an international student. Would applying for a student visa and then planning to apply for a defacto visa post student visa would this situation question his choice for study? The reason we have looked at this student option is to return to Australia sooner than waiting another 2 years for more living status evidence aswell as a lengthy defacto visa waiting period. I hope this makes sense to those who maybe able to help.

thanks

Any course for a student visa needs to be an approved one and you'll need to check that for there has been a few problems with private college hospitality courses though TAFE should be OK.

If you have been together for a fair while is marriage out of the question for the full 12 months relationship requirement is then waived or alternately consider the PMV and you should not be waiting two years.

We dont want to rush a into a marriage as we have a genuine relationship, its just the living in greece and the lack of thought that went into living together 2 years ago. I have sent a few emails to the TAFE reguarding the course.

I know alot of people who have gotten married quickly to speed up their visa process, and they are still waiting. I dont think the getting married is a shoe in so to speak and im glad its not otherwise the process would be even longer. thank you for your help.
