I didn't think entry was linked to PCC expiring once the visa has already been granted?

Hey beautiful people,

I have a question and I hope it's appropriate in this thread.

I have been living in Australia on a bridging visa for 4 years and had to leave on 18/10/19. I am from Germany.

Now, my partner and I decided that we want to to build a case for a partner visa and set up everything we could while I was still in Australia.

- Joint Bank Account, which we both are using
- He moved into the shared house I used to live in
- He will travel to see me in Vietnam next month
- He did open a membership in my gym
- We are communicating every day
- We have lots of photos as we share the same community
- We will do a Civil Partnership when I get back to Australia

The question now is, that my lawyer has suggested to remain 3 months out of the country before I should attempt to ask for a Tourist Visa (very hard for me both of us). So I am hopping through Asia. Then I want to go back to live with him for 3 months until the visa runs out. And then I'll leave again.

My current thought is to apply for a visa offshore to fast track the approval process. The question I have now is, if anyone knows with what reasons I could come along as of why we apply with me being offshore rather than onshore?

Would you believe with the evidence we have so far, the application could be successful? How are you bridging the waiting time? Are you travelling for each other or is the Australian Partner living offshore?

Am really wondering about all of this and hope someone can give me an idea of how we can go best about this.

Thanks for every tip 😊❤️

Hi There,

First, I am not an agent. A joint bank account is good. How long has your partner lived with you? Was your partner on the lease or an approved occupant? On any of the bills? Did you get bank statements fr both of you at that address? Document that you are traveling to be together, also good! Communicating daily is good (it's normal for committed couples). Expect to be able to show these communications (Google chats, Whatsapp, emails, etc.)

You should have at minumum 2 people to fill out 888, which is a legal document stating that this friend or family member knows that you are in a relationship and knows details. Mine were done by my Aussie partner's parents and a couple he has know for about 20 years. Having Aussies doing these is good. Also, having people who have known one of you for a while is good. We had photos with our 888 folks going back years (note: my husband and I have been married for 10 years).

Photos are good-don't overload, but be strategic.

Finally, look at this page:
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...rovisional-309

It is the time line for 309 visas (offshore). There will be a similar page for 801 visas on the immigration website-I am not sure they are that different, but these don't tell you actual average waiting times. Compare the wait times, make a decision.

If you enter Australia on a tourist visa you are declaring that you are here for tourist activities, but of course that does sometimes change. If you have lived together for more than a year, you may have been in a defacto relationship already. It's unusual for people to have shared bank accounts that aren't committed to each other. It certainly *appears* to be a valid case for consideration, but members of this forum only know what you have told us.

Good luck to both of you.

Thank you so much for your valuable tips.

We haven't lived together just yet, that's the trouble we're having. He moved into my place just after I left and when I get back on a Tourist visa, we'll share the place. It's only a shared flat, so there's no lease or anything as it's a private thing. He's an approved occupant and I can get a letter from the lady who rents it out stating it.

We are both using the joint account, can show our communication and he just booked his ticket to see me in Vietnam for a few weeks, before he needs to go back to Australia for work purpose. I will follow as soon as possible.

We don't have any shared bills, because all the costs such as electricity etc. are included in our weekly rent. So no other bills apply. He changed all his addresses, ID etc etc to his new residence, which is the place I used to live with.

We do share the same community, have photos together and with others and I am sure, the 888 should be no problem to get filled out.

That's kind of the situation right now.

The major trouble is the living together thing. We have known each other since the beginning of the year and it started out as a casual friendship and grew through that with common friends, adventures, stories, Ups and Downs. So not the fast - track Online Dating Scenario that seems to be a thing these days 😅
