ETA Question - De Facto

Hi everyone,

Yet another question, this time regarding high risk countries.
Quick summary of the situation. Boyfriend and I are applying for a de facto Visa. I am Australia and he is a South African with a German passport. He has been living in the UK for the last 7 years and uses his South African passport only to visit RSA on holiday.

Will the fact he comes from a high risk country extend the processing time of our Visa? Will he have to provide evidence of his South African nationality, or will it be fine for him to base the application on his German passport?

Thanks,

Julianne

As a German citizen he can apply on that basis but I think you'll find that the application form also calls for declaration of any other passports held and if he was born in SA, that'll also show with his BC and also with parents etc., so no real chance of not declaring it.
You'll also see from the eligibility and applying sections and Booklet #1, all of which should be studied in depth that he'll need a police report from any country in which he has been in for more thasn 12 months in the past ten years.
Also have a read of the sticky thread by elkitten for some good ideas there too.

But SA as a HR country may not cause undue delay as there is variation on requirements of HR countries.

Thanks for the response. He has already applied for his RSA police check so that is one thing to tick off the endless list. I will have a read of the sticky thread.

Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to help out
