Hi Peggytee

My partner does not have a birth certificate so I called them and they said they would accept proof of address e.g. bank statements, passport, medicare card, driving licence. For me I gave my bank statement, credit card statement and passport. My partner got all his docs certified by a JP and I went off to the JP and got mine certified. We completed and signed all the forms and I posted them off to BDM.

Download the forms from forms/18-Rel-Register-0211.pdf and you will find that it tells you provide certain docs for ID purposes.


Hope this helps you

Hi all,

Quick question. Does anyone know how long the current processing time is for the de facto offshore? I know it is 9 months from Aus but keen to find out how long it takes when lodged in the UK?

Thanks in advance

Back in February they were quoting 5/6 months. Mine (filed then) took 5.
Although this was not de facto, but still a 309 visa.

EDIT I believe you can also post this question to them,, they may send you a generic reply which I'd guess includes current estimated times.

Hi Munster, Hi Iain

Iain, I think we filed ours within a day or so of each other, if I remember correctly.
My application took just under 6 months. Got confirmation email on 6 July 2011 and I lodged in February 2011. I am now the proud owner of a Temp PR visa 309 and for my initial entry have to return by December 2011, (in line with my medicals I think).

So I'm busy scouting for jobs in Sydney, whilst still here in the UK, updating my CV and checking about college course and what I have to pay for them.

I'm also now making sure I keep all evidence ready for the 2nd stage - so using this forum to keep up to date with that.
