change in circumstances??

Hi all,

Does anyone know how we're supposed to update the partner visa application for situations like a change in the applicant's current employer or highest level of education? My husband has recently graduated and started a new job, and we're not sure where to add this information, since it's in form 80.

Do we submit a notification of change in circumstances? I read somewhere that's only for changes to the relationship or major changes like having a baby or adding a child to the application and can slow things down for the application.

Should we summarize the updates under "notification of incorrect answers"?

Or should we update a new and revised form 80? (I think we can all agree this form is just... the worst!)

Thanks to anyone who has any advice.

Visa Upsell Racket

Read about this intriguing information. The article suggests that the government is taking advantage of partners desperate to stay together during the pandemic!

Congratulations! My wife has been granted visitor visa and now she is planning to travel to Sydney from Dhaka. I was just wondering have you booked ticket for your partner.

New to forum - so hello all!

I applied for my partner visa in mid-March 2020 (London, UK) - all police checks, health checks and documents uploaded for both of us (we think...)

Just waiting now...a bit concerned about the increase to the waiting time as our lease finishes next year so was hoping it would be through by then...

Hi everyone, new to this forum and looking for advice.

We applied in Beijing in May 2018 and were granted the the visa in December 2019. We planned to travel to Australia in February 2020, but had to cancel due to covid (had even bought tickets). The 'enter before date' is late November 2020. I have emailed my CO about if this date is flexible due to covid, but I was told it is not. My wife needs to apply for an exception to travel to Australia and arrive before the end of November.

We currently live in China full time and do not plan to move to Australia right now. If my wife goes to Australia to fulfill the visa requirement, she'll have to spend 2 weeks in quarantine in Australia, then turn around and fly back to China and spend another 2 weeks in quarantine here. A wasteful, and potentially dangerous experience. I wouldn't even be able to go with her, as I would possibly be stopped from returning to China.

The message I received is as follows:

Quote:
The first entry date condition is a legislative requirement and is attached to permanent and provisional visas granted offshore. It is not possible to waive the condition or vary the date, and visa holders who breach the first entry date condition may be subject to visa cancellation.

However, in the majority of cases, visa holders who are unable to make their first entry by the required date may be allowed to enter Australia at a later date, provided their visa is still valid and there is no other reason to consider cancellation of the visa.

This consideration cannot occur until travel plans have been made. When you are able to travel to Australia, you should contact the Department of Home Affairs’ office which granted your visa and you will be assisted with additional advice at that time. Refer to the Home Affairs website for up-to-date contact details for the relevant office responsible for each country.
I realise it says 'majority' of cases, but I'm really worried to push our luck, due to the expense of the visa! I'm really worried that my wife won't be able to travel this year, the visa will be rejected and we'll have to apply again from scratch. Any advice?
