309 Partner Visa

I'm very excited to announce my wife on last Monday on the 2nd of July was granted her 309 Subclass Partner Visa!!

She is currently 8.5 months pregnant and will be joining me in Australia along with our soon to be born child very soon after the birth in India. The successful grant was totally out of the blue as we were focussing on my wife's pregnancy and it came as a surprise as we thought a decision would only be made after the birth of our child. Only downside is because my wife was successfully granted her visa before the delivery of our child we were not able to include the child's name along with my wifes visa, we now have to apply separately for our child after it is born. To fast track things, I will be applying for the childs Australian Citizenship by descent and applying for childs Australian passport right after the birth so that my wife and child can migrate together to Australia.

Ours was an extremely complex case (as I previously sponsored my ex-wife and her partner visa was granted within 9 months back in 2014, however unfortunately after the partner visa was granted, the relationship ended and deteriorated to a point she did not make initial entry into Australia and ended up in legal divorce and her partner visa not being used. This occurred less than 5 years ago and the department has rules and regulations set in place and does not allow for a sponsor to sponsor more than 1 partner within a 5 year period unless there was compelling circumstances).

I was able to put together a highly detailed application when making lodgement. Partner Visa Lodgement date was done in New Delhi on September 22nd 2017. Took just under 10 months to be granted. After making lodgement following our wedding, I brought my wife to Australia for 3 months on a visiting visa and she returned back to Australia with me after our wedding in India. In Australia she conducted her Medical Examinations and we found out that the great news that she was pregnant. We notified the department with all the evidence and kept them in the loop with all details regularly regarding pregnancy matters. She returned back to India and we kept the department updated. We did not receive any phone calls or interviews from the department but I was required to put together a highly detailed sponsorship waiver document because in the eyes of the high commission, a Aus sponsor is not permitted to sponsor more than one applicant within a 5 year period unless there is very compelling circumstances and had to put together details of the hardships, impacts, consequences and adverse issues that may be caused if the sponsorship was not approved by the department.

If anybody has any queries regarding the 309 partner visa please let me know and I'll try to answer, as I believe I have become a highly skilled subject matter expert in this visa category!! Happy to help out a hand and provide assistance to the community for those who have already applied for 309 and have questions or to those looking to apply in the near future to make it an easier process for you to be a step closer to be with your loved ones

What evidences of a genuine and continuing relationship can I submit?

Profile:

I was granted a 189 last year and moved to Australia in October 2017.

Married my girlfriend in June 2018, with whom I dated for around 7 years and currently applying for her 309. Had to leave a week after the wedding as I'm both studying and working full time and did not have any leave to spare.

I'm stuck with evidences:

Household- never lived together before marriage and only lived together for a week after marriage. She currently she lives at my parent's (since the wedding). Before that we lived at our own parent's before I moved to Australia last year. She was later removed from my application when we clarified that we are not officially married or de-facto, we were merely dating then and intend to marry soon.

Finances - I've only started supporting her financially after the marriage and that wouldn't count as much since it's been just a month. I have her as my SuperAnnuation beneficiary.

Social - Most of my friends and relatives know that we've been dating for a long time and the cultural wedding was pretty elaborate (So, that would be some evidence). Couple of facebook posts, millions of Viber messages.

Legal: Marriage registration certificate stating that the marriage was done as per hindu culture.
I'd experienced a setback in my 189 last year when CO assumed (based on my form 80 where I stated about her being my girlfriend) that we were in a de-facto relationship. She was requested to produce her police medicals and passport and she has those (not yet expired) from last year.

Genuine and continuing relationship evidence varies from individuals as everyones circumstances differ to one another. What you can do is try to make the most of your circumstances with your partner. Appending various photographs together into a combined PDF file with little footnotes of the location/place event of the photo can show the department the special occasions places you and your loved one have spent together. photograph evidence of your family with your partner, along with your friends also covers the social aspect. the more photos you can procure together the better standing you have but don't go overboard. Marriage ceremony photographs is a must, but you can then add further photographs if you went somewhere nice together like honeymoon and photographs of you both together with family and friends shows the department that you are known to the wider public outside of the family and you have that social interaction. Chat history is good so best to keep all viber messages and export to a word document or similar and keep ready. If you have any telephone phone contact such as skype/calling cards showing the time length/duration of the phone calls and dates that is also an advantage to keep screenshots of these.

Its fine if you have not spent time together to show household expenses as your situation is not uncommon. You can mention this in your personal statement that you are not living together however you have supported your partner with everything possible ie. whatever expenses that has come you and your partners way you have provided for. Example western union money transfer receipts. Sending money to local bank account in India etc.. Whilst together with your partner did you open a joint bank account? have you got proof of this? If not can you open one now and include her name? Do you send money or gifts to your partner? Did you buy wedding jewellery/saree for your partner? Do you have receipts? Do you send money to your parents who your partner is also residing with to support them financially? what is your partner doing with the time is she involved in any schooling? is she doing any courses? any activities? How is she being supported are you covering this type of expense? do you send Valentines day gift with receipt of purchase, birthday gifts/cake? Any other purchases online ie. clothes etc.. best to keep receipts of these so you can show that you are providing and supporting your partner. If you have not then it is not too late to start I'm sure you can add to the list. All these and more can be used as evidence the more you have the obviously stronger case you have for genuine relationship. Its best you start to gather as much possible and keep an electronic copy of it somewhere filed so that you can forward to department.
Superannuation beneficiary is also good shows you are thinking about the future. What is even more beneficial is if you can bring your partner to aus on a visiting visa. This shows the department that you are serious about the relationship. You can show the department the visiting visa grant, the fees amount you spent to apply, airline tickets receipts you purchased for your partner to come to Australia. all this to the eyes of the department is showing that you care about your relationship in wanting to bring your partner with you. Even if it is a short trip depending on your circumstances it definetely adds to your case. You can then add partner to your home loan, bank accounts you have locally, car insurance etc.. electricity bill, list can go on. More photographs with family friends can also be taken and so on and it further validates the relationship that you two have are in genuine nature. Finally personal statements from both your partner and yourself describing the above situation how you two met and nature of relationship. It gives the department to understand your relationship on a personal front and it is a good opportunity for you to give your story and for your "voice" to come through. I'm sure that having dated for 7 years you will have many nice things to talk about of each other

Heh Chandni,

Thanks a lot!

Yes I did apply for tourist visa. I planned to visit my husband in August. It does help to expedite the process. Even if you are working, you can show that you are visiting your husband for a couple of weeks.

Goodluck 🙂
