Hi eveyone!
I have a question about the 309/100 visa. Is it possible to apply for it if the sponsor and spouse are both residing outside Australia? The sponsor is an Australian citizen though with a valid Australian passport

Hi Lewd,
Are you and your wife both living outside of Australia right now?

So our Japanese police checks will be ready in a couple of days, the missus has to get her health check, and that's it. I was told to wait to complete an Oz police clearance for some reason. Yeah it was depressing to see the wait times lengthened out of the blue. Do any of these cases ever get approved inside of the estimates? Cheers, L

I am not quite sure. I am the sponsor of my husband and we are both residing outside Australia. I was told by the Australian Embassy to put down where we will be staying in form 40SP (Sponsor form) part H in Australia and show proof of how the sponsor will support the applicant.

For example, I showed that I have work connections in Australia i.e. recruitment agencies. Since we are living with family I also got them to show 6 months worth of their pay slips, a letter stating that we would be living with them, land rate bills and bank statements showing that it's their house and a passport certified copy.

At the end of the form explain your situation to show how the sponsor (You or your wife vice versa) will and can support you in Australia.

This is the same situation as ours. Yes, it's possible. In form 40SP part H, you will have to put down where you will be staying in Australia. For example, if I work I can easily sponsor my husband, but I have to show that I have work connections in Australia i.e. recruitment agencies.

Since we are living with family I also got them to show 6 months worth of their pay slips, a letter stating that we would be living with them, land rate bills and bank statements showing that it's their house and a passport certified copy.

Application from Brazil (Jan/2018)

Greetings everyone.
I’d like to know if there are any other people here in a similar situation.

Me and my partner applied for her Partner Visa (309/100) on January 2018. We’ve been together for nearly 6 years and have a registered relationship (de facto) for over 5 years now. She’s been to Australia with me on a tourist visa on 2013. We came so she could meet my aussie family and the land itself, since we already had plans to potentially move here once I finished my graduation back in Brazil. I my self I’m a PR and have recently moved back to Australia this May. She orthodoxly respected her tourist visa’s limitation and did not enrol in any sort of work or job-like activity while in the country and left before her visa expired, which I hope will weight on DIBP’s decision.

We had filled a previous application but things turned a bit nasty due to a terrible mistake taken on my behalf. Since I was not residing in Australia, my travel facility expired and I had to later re-apply for a Returning Resident Visa (155). Due to that terrible mistake, I did not had a valid visa and therefore she was not eligible for the Partner Visa.

Fortunately I was contacted my her CO which explained us the situation and advised us to withdraw her application, re-apply for a Returning Resident Visa for me and then make another application for her. This blessed soul saved us from having her application denied which would make it really hard for her to re-apply and also prompt a 3-year ban. May this be an example for everyone on how DIBP, despite common belief, have people with a genuine will to help others. May this officer be blessed with all the good things she deserves.

We then followed her advice, withdraw my partner’s application, applied for my 155 visa (which was granted quite quickly) and later re-applied for her 309/100 on January. Unfortunately we did of course had to pay another $7000,00 fee. We even applied for a refund, but naturally we don’t hold our hopes high for that.

We are now waiting on a decision. We have provided our de facto papers dating back to 2013, statutory declarations regarding our genuine and ongoing relationship from my mother, aunt and uncle (all Australian citizens), bills that show we were living together in Brazil, shared weeding invitations, plane tickets, pictures and other documents to prove the veracity of our ongoing relationship. Upon enquiry, we were advised by her previous CO not to provide her medical exams early on, since they are only valid for 12 months. But now, 6 months after the application, my partner arranged for the exams to be taken next week so we can update her application and have it “complete”, hoping that her case will be assessed within the next 12 months.

I had to move back to Australia before a decision was made on her visa so that I could prepare a life for us here. I’ve since then enrolled at a master degree and am working on having a stable household for when she comes. We’ve since then updated her application with my new aussie address and by putting me as an authorized recipient of her application so that I’ll hopefully be contacted to promptly provide any sort of document or information DIBP may require about us.

Regarding the option present at immiacc to upload “proof of contact while apart”, would history logs from apps like whatsapp and skype suffice? Naturally these are the only means by which we communicate (daily). I was thinking on compiling a pdf file with these evidences and uploading it to this section.

We are of course extremely anxious for a decision and would like to provide absolutely any form of information the Department may require. Anyone else here is on a similar situation or have heard of someone in it? Is there any form of further action we can take? Is Brazil currently considered a “high-risk country”? (it should be).

Hi there. I am in a similar situation. I recently spoke to a registered migration consultant in Australia, and I was told that both the applicant and the sponsor can be outside when the PMV is lodged. Hope this helps.
