Defacto Visa, any interview involved with process?

Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I am very happy to find this forum as me and my fiancee are going to be applying for a defacto visa in the next coming months.

We plan to apply in July or Aug as by the time we will have met 1 year requirement for defacto relationship.

Apart from filling out and submitting the 47SP and 40SP forms, is there anything else we should expect from the immigration like will they sit us for interviews?

Is the process hard or generally straighforward?

There will be many more questions to come im sure :-)

Thanks in advance,

You can look into registering your relationship,that can waive the 12 months requirement but you still need to give evidence that your relationship is genuine and continuing.

If you are engaged the 'prospective marriage visa' might be an option for you as well!

There is a bit more than just filling out the 2 forms you'll have to do...
Read through the 'partner immigration booklet', spend some time on the immi web page and read the sticky threads here in this forum!

Immi can ask you to come in for an interview or ask for a phone interview.There is a sticky thread about possible questions ask by immigration as well!

Hope that helps

And welcome to the forum!

Mic has listed a few things you can read up on re an application and there are of course things like police checks, medical examinations, statements and evidence, the Checklist in the application section for a visa being a great guide.

The PMV is only applicable if you were applying from outside Australia and if you were considering marriage as an early option.

But generally speaking, if people stick with what the regulations indicate, have good evidence and follow the application/Checklist instructions, the only difficulty if you could call it that is committing to making the effort to ensure an accurate and complete application.
A good clear application and good evidence may even see an interview not being required.
