Hi, can work history affects partner visa application?

Hi JandE,

What would be the suggestion in my case ?

My wife applied for Partner Visa (309) back in May and after a few weeks she applied for Visitor Visa. We had thought about which stream of Visitor Visa we would go for. And after some suggestions we opted for family sponsored. Whether or not that's the best choice I don't know.
We asked for 12 months stay but granted only 3 months single entry.
So now she's back to her country and would like to apply again for Visitor Visa.
The question now is can she apply within three weeks of returning to her country ?
Which stream would be the best one ? Stick with family sponsored or go for the general visitor visa ?
How many months is reasonable to ask for ? Three or six ?
i know it is a bit tricky and there is no perfect answer to this but we are in a bit of a stress as she wants to come here again soon and stay here for a bit longer than three months. Immigration might not be too keen on giving more than three months stay especially in family sponsored stream. At least a multiple entry would be really good but don't know if they will give it this time.

Thank you.

Hello 🙂
I have applied for 309 in January and visited my spouse for a 3 month period and returned in September to my home country. And I applied for visitor visa ( family sponsored ) in October and my visa got rejected. Although I applied for a 12month visa they stated that I have just got back from Oz and they are not satisfied about the fact that I’m willing to leave my home country constantly. Another reason stating that I might be on shore while they make a decision.

Hope this helps.

He is Aussie and I came to Melbourne on a tourist visa about 3 weeks ago after us both being in the UK for 2 years. Currently on a 3 month Evisitor visa that I activated in March to come over for a wedding but I'm wondering if this has had some impact on the wait time or if it's probably going to be a 16 month wait!
Any help would be great 🙂
Applied in the UK in early Feb 2019 here, with my RFI coming at the end f July. No movement onmine yet, buit on another forum I am seeing the January 2019 applications coming through steadily now after months of delays. Hoping we should hear something in the next couple of weeks, or it will be possibly a 600 visa application going into head over there for Christmas and until the grant comes through.
Are grants from January 2019 coming through? Do you know any cases from India?

Different embassies seem to have different views on this.

In your situation, after a refusal, I would probably want to see a migration agent.

She haven't applied for Visitor Visa yet and we are trying to understand what would be the best bet so that she would at least get three months Visitor Visa.

Thank you for the response.
Sorry to know that it got rejected. Perhaps asking for 12 months stay was a bit too much ? And yes, the reason they gave may not make too much of sense to you because you have a genuine reason to visit your partner, that is how the officers think. Nothing much we can do about it. But it is also a bit surprising that they said you might be on shore while they make a decision because they generally ask the applicant to leave the country once the decision time is coming, don't they ? And when they ask the applicant has to leave the country. So, I don't quite get it.
But anyway, I hope they Partner Visa get approved for you soon. All the best.

The reasons they gave was extremely unconvincing. But we assumed partner visa was processing and they refused visitor visa. Looking forward for a grant soon.

One month stay in the home country may be considered as too short in between two visitor visas. Try again in few months time. Hope you would get the partner visa grant soon.

Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well 😄 A couple of questions if I may-

1) I'm from the UK but am currently in New Zealand on a work visa. Should I upload the grant letter in the 'Proof of visa for country of residence'? (or words to that effect)

2) I applied mid June this year with everything front loaded apart from medical which was done 10 days later. How much longer should it realistically take through London? Sponsor and I have been together 5+ years, married 2+, and we have a 3 year old together who I'm desperate to settle permanently with 😢
