I read that too and didn't applied without confirmation. So I emailed AHC Islamabad and they confirmed that we can apply if sponsor is in Pakistan:

"Yes you can apply partner visa for your wife and you can provide your
Pakistan's address if you are in Pakistan."

It's also written on their website:

Pg9 - Migration Visas

"The sponsor does not need to be living in Australia at the time of application."

HTH

Hi Hassoo84,
I have been getting the same news from other sources but I know of some people who have applied for Partner visa while they were still overseas. So I would suggest you do the same.

Hi everyone,

I applied last week for my husbands offshore partner visa (100).

My question is in regards to my partners and my daughters health assessment that they are to complete. (Automatically appeared in online immi under view health assessment and a referral letter was generated to book a medical appointment).

Are you able to book a medical assessment appointment in another country? Or are you only allowed to book in the country you applied in? For example - We are based in Spain but very close to France. There is a panel physician in France that is closer to us than Madrid or Barcelona.

Thanks.

Hi Mamainspain,

You can book the medical appointments for your husband and daughter in France, if that is easier. Just make sure you have the HAP ID(s) for them when you make the appointment.

The HAP ID is the unique number (health identifier) generated for you by DIBP. When you go into the "my health assessment" section in the ImmiAccount, there are some questions that your husband needs to answer, and then you can print a referral letter.
The HAP ID is on the bottom of the letter, and also under the barcode on the top right hand side of the letter.

Hope that makes sense - you'll see what I mean when your husband prints his letter.

Makes perfect sense.

I checked the letters and can see HAP ID for my husband and daughter. Will have the letters with me when I book the appointments.

Thanks.

My partner lives with me in NZ and I don't see a problem for not applying while overseas. It is your right to stay with your partner while you await your application.

Hi everyone, thanks for the great information and support. I'm an American who applied for a 309 from New Zealand in mid July. I know it is still very early to hear anything, so it's fine that I haven't. Any other NZ applicants hear anything about timing for us? Thanks!

I've heard the that 'you must be outside the country when you accept the visa' thing does not mean the Partners original country, and could be anywhere (like New Zealand)

So they could potentially come on a Tourist visa for a few weeks / month, get the partner visa (hopefully) then go to NZ and back?? Does anybody know any info on this? I'm considering it as would love my Partner here for Christmas...

Thanks
G
