Hey Guys,

Relatively new to the forum and have been reading through this thread which has been great for initial insights. I'm currently living in the UK and my partner (British) and I are looking to apply for our partner visa (309) in the coming month and had some initial questions;

- Is it best to just pay for the application ASAP and then focus on gathering evidence? I read that you want to get 'into the queue' as soon as possible but not sure what initial documents/evidence you need in order to start the process. Is it just best to wait until we've gathered everything?

- Once the visa is approved, is there a certain time frame in which you need to enter the country? I've struggled to find anything on this and our plan is to resign once we have approval (3 months notice period!) and then travel for a while before we settle.

Thanks!

They have changed it again on immigration website for partner visa.

17 months- 25%
25 months- 75%

I just wonder why they even bother to change the time frame because it just doesn’t make any sense and it doesn’t help either.

From my own experience in can take several months to collect all the evidence, structure it in a clear way and have it ready to upload. We probably did about 90% of it prior to submitting but then still spent some time getting the last few details in. Given current processing times it is maybe unlikely that the application will be looked at immediately but officially they could evaluate your submission at any time. Hence I was not willing to take that risk. In any case, some details are required as part of your submission such as family details, travel history, who will provide form 888 references, etc.

There is a fixed timeframe given for when to enter the country, which I believe is base on police check/medical dates plus one year. Hence if you wait to do those until asked for you could have (almost) a full year to enter, but if you front load you may have less time (or even have to redo them given current processing times).

Note - the above is just my experience and information, I am not an RMA. If unsure, best to get professional advice.
