Fingers crossed for sure!

Just a heads up when my husband and I were going to India, he applied for a visa cause he isn't of Indian heritage. We applied for the Indian "partner" visa which is entry visa after we got married and VFS office in Brisbane gave him a 6 month (non extendable) tourist visa. So from my experience they are pretty hopeless.

Hi Guys,

I recently moved to Australia and I am planning to apply for my wife's partner visa(309/100). She is an Indian and currently working in Singapore. We are planning to apply for the visa online.
I just wanted to check where the visa will be processed, will it be from Singapore or from India and which checklist should i follow, is it from the Australian high commission website in Singapore or in India.

Thanks,
jesi

If it was me, I'd follow the DIBP website checklist and partner booklet, and then see if any further documents were requested.

Thanks Maggie, I will check both.
Do you know about where it would be processed and if the location makes a difference in processing time?

The location where the application will be processed depends on where you partner is located. If you partner lives in Singapore as she works there (permanently) the application most likely will get assessed at the Australian High Commission in Singapore.

I knew another applicant who is an Indian citizen but was living and working in Dubai and his application got assessed in Dubai.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Everyone,
I am in the process of applying 309/100 visa online. I am collecting the documents and was just wondering how to best present/group the evidence.
Eg - my partner is not working so I (sponsor) takes care of all the finances. I am just trying to give the bank statement as proof that i payed the rent, travel etc.
I was thinking of highlighting the transaction and making a small note next to it.
Is that the best way of doing it? or may be making a separate attachment explaining other evidence/attachment?
Please suggest
Thanks,
Jesi

Hi All,

We just submitted the partner visa(309/100) online and we are at the attach documents section. I understand that we have to attach all the evidence here but i am a bit confused about the sponsor form 40sp. Should I use my wifes immi account (applicant) to fill out my (sponsor) 40sp form or should i use my own mmi account and use the TRN to submit "Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300,309/100,820/801)" application

Also in my wife's immi account document attachment section , i have my name also in the left pane and have "attach document" section. is this section just for basic documents like identity etc.

Thanks,
Jesi

Hi Becky26

My case is just as complicated as yours. My DOL is 11th of May 2015.
I received an email from AHC in January informing me about CO allocation and a call for interview in April. I believe you had a face to face interview yourself. Would you be kind enough to tell me what sort of questions I should expect. Million thanks

Hey sahil.g,

I'm sorry to hear about the complication with your case.
Yes, I was interviewed 8 months before my application was approved after uncountable number of phone calls and emails to the high commission from my husband and myself.

The interview consisted of my telling them the story of how my husband and I met and everything about our relationship. About his family and how my family dealt with the fact that he wasn't of Indian background which annoyed me so much. Also because of the so called "Indian culture" women get arranged married to their spouse; how my parents responded to me being with a white guy.

Another thing that pissed me off was her last question, what will you do if this application wasn't accepted. My response was, no matter what the outcome was, we will find a way back to each other. Apart from God, no one can keep us from spending our lives with each other while she was handing me tissues to wipe my tears off.
This was right at the end of the interview which lasted for 2 and a half hours when I lost my calm. I wasn't hostile at all or trying to be rude to them. It was just that question that made me so angry. We did have a back up plan in case she was going to reject our second application.
I wouldn't suggest being rude to them at all, Im just sharing what happened during my interview. Stay polite at all times which I was too.

Long story short the two females one of them was the case officer the other was the senior case officer interrogated me, it wasn't an interview. They were trying to convince me that our relationship wasn't genuine.

We had provided a massive file and provided them with additional documents every 3 months. We too had an onshore partner visa denied in December 2012 hence more scrutiny.

Do you mind sharing the complication with your case. Hope your interview is a lot better than mine.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky
