Question : 2nd stage partner visa ( 100 )

Hello All...

we received a letter saying that we can lodge documents to process our second stage visa.

Well few questions

1. If we apply online Do we have to wait till end of 2 years to lodge it ? ( ex: if we lodged our 309 01-sep-2012 do we have to wait till 01-sep-2014 to lodge it ? )

2. If we apply by post Do we have to post them before that date ?

3. when we give Statutory Declarations do we have to use the form from immi site ?
http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/form..._applicant.pdf
or can we use our own ? as the space provided may not be enough.

4. Heard some experienced issues when doing it online anyone with experience using it online ?


Thank You

From what I've read here (and it hasn't been a ton so take this with a HUGE grain of salt) the system provides a calculator for you to determine your eligibility before it lets you actually apply. If you tell the calculator your correct application date, you can't provide your application materials before that date. If you tell the calculator your application date is a few months prior then it actually was, it will put you through to the application system and let you submit your evidence early. Your visa will still not be granted before your eligibility date, of course. From what I've read here it's not a big deal to "game" the calculator like that - the calculator isn't actually info you're providing to DIBP or part of hte application so it's okay to use it that way. BUT that's not something I know for sure as I haven't seen it myself. That's why I didn't originally answer these questions for you - I'm not really sure on this one and didn't want to give you incorrect or misleading information. Probably best to corroborate somewhere else that it's okay to do things this way.

"Have to?" No. But if they gave you a deadline in the letter they sent you, you need to provide them by that date. At some point if you do not provide your second stage reassessment materials, they'll cancel your temporary visa. I personally would provide it ASAP so you have a better chance of getting your PR sooner rather than later.

I know with the temporary partner visa it's fine to do your own statutory declarations on plain paper. I imagine it's true of the permanent visa, too, but again, this isn't something I'm positive on. Also, if you're talking about OTHER people's statutory declarations about your relationship, that may be another situation entirely. I know for the temporary partner visa they *prefer* those from Australian citizens/PRs be on Form 888. Not positive on the permanent part.

There are two whole threads devoted to permanent partner visa (second stage) processing on this forum. They're usually on the first or second page of threads. You might try asking in there.


Sometimes when you don't get answers it's not that you're being ignored... it's that I and others here don't like to give answers unless we're sure we're correct, and you may be asking questions some of us aren't certain of.
