Spouse/Partner Cost

Hi everyone,
I am French and currently living and working in Australia, and I want to apply for a Spouse/Partner visa to stay in Australia. I have an Australian partner whom I have been with for over 2 years now, and we have lived together for 12 months (less 2 months which I spent with family in France). We will be easily able to prove our relationship with photos, financial documents, testimonials, and rental statements, however our concern is the cost of the visa application.

We've heard of the possibility of applying for this visa where it costs only $295 - on the basis that I would have a "Extended Eligibility Temporary Visa" (see below). I'm not sure what this is and was wondering if anyone could provide more information? I am currently on a Working Holiday Visa (1st year) and have also used a Student Visa in Australia.

Spouse with transitional Extended Eligibility
Temporary Visa (EETV) $295
Applies to people who:
– currently hold a Transitional (temporary) visa; and
– were granted this visa on the basis that they
satisfied the requirements for the grant of an
extended eligibility entry permit under the
Migration Regulations 1989.

... w.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/990i0710.pdf
(information from above is from this link).

We would appreciate any advice on this!

You will need a good reason for the two months gap in your relationship residence together and it may pay you to do the regional specific work to get a second WHV if you are young enough and have time so as you can make sure of the 12+ months.
Have a look at the sticky thread by el kitten for some ideas on evidence, it being best to have as much hard documentary evidence as possible rather than relying on photos and testimonials/statements etc,

If you were able to get the EETV cheaper application, I expect you would know about it and the likelihood is that you will be up for the more normal onshore fee of $2575.
You could check with Immi what it is.

Hello Ronandlg,
Did you finally got an answer to your question? Is the WHV considered as a EETV?
Thank you in advance,
