That's a tough question, Super. Quite honestly, it depends on the CO. We've seen people rejected on this forum for being just a day short, but others have gotten away with it. It would honestly be a gamble, so it's up to you whether you're comfortable risking it.

Ah, that's unfortunate. Venezuela is not a safe country at the moment and I was hoping to avoid him having to do an offshore application. But a partner visa application is definitely too important to leave it to chance, so if we can't find an alternative visa for him it will have to be offshore.

Thank you for your reply.

I believe there is a type of Bridging Visa that allows you to stay in the country for a few days if you're about ready to apply for another type of visa. You may want to check with a migration agent to make sure that's something he could do and what the consequences (if any) would be.

It's possible, but I'm not 100% sure. It also cuts it incredibly fine. All you need is a technical glitch in the system preventing you from lodging the visa and you're in strife. It's too bad he can't qualify for a second WHV, as that'd give you the needed wiggle room. Does he have an occupation on the CSOL that he could try to find a 457 visa sponsor while he's here?

Of course, with the 457, just be aware he's tied to the same employer for the next 12-15 months while the visa processes as your BVA will never kick in if he's on the 457.

It seems like a Bridging Visa D might be a possibility, as it would allow for five days extra at the end of his WHV to meet the 12 month requirement, but would also mean he would only get a Bridging Visa C instead of an A if I read correctly.

I had a look through the (huge!) skills list for the 457, and though lecturing at a tertiary level as he currently does in Venezuela isn't on the list, graphic design and illustration both are and he has had a lot of experience with that as well, so we'll certainly do our best to get him a 457 during his WHV as long as it's a place he's willing to work for the entire processing period.

Thank you both for the detailed responses!

Hello!
I'm Super's boyfriend. Thank you all so much for the information you've provided so far! I'm about to lodge the 417 visa application. However, I have a couple of questions prior to doing so.

- The immi website informs me that my birth certificate must be in English, and if not, must have an accredited translation. This is a no-go condition as I don't live in a city with properly accredited translation offices, nor is it viable on short notice, as I know the offices who do it take anywhere from weeks to a month to deliver.

My question: Is it mandatory that it be submitted in English?

- I recently asked an immigration support agency regarding my case, and they told me that this plan has a flaw: that once my visa ends, in order to request a second WHV or any other one offshore I would have to do it from the country my passport originates from - in this case, Italy. However, while I have the European Citizenship by being Italian, I don't live in Italy but in Venezuela.

Was this statement true, or are they mistaken in their assessment.

Thank you all SO much for your time and assistance!

They're mistaken. As far as Aus immigration is concerned, there are two places you can apply for visas: Inside Australia, and Outside Australia (onshore and offshore). Where you are offshore is irrelevant when you apply for a visa. Make sure any migration agency you use is MARA-registered. Sorry I can't help on the birth certificate issue - I'm pretty sure it's mandatory it be translated, unfortunately, but I'm not 100% positive. Hopefully someone else will chime in who knows for sure.

Thanks for clarifying the offshore requirement, CollegeGirl. I was taking a look at the IMMI website with regards to accredited translations, and found this: Who can translate my documents into English for me?

"A translator outside Australia does not need to be accredited, but they must endorse the translation with their full name, address, telephone number, and details of their qualifications and experience in the language being translated."

As you can see above, my boyfriend is fluent in English and also has a degree in legal translation so I believe he would be qualified enough. But I am unsure as to if you are allowed to translate your own documents if you are applying for a visa, even if you are qualified. Has there been some kind of precedent set for this?

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend letting him be the translator, unfortunately. That's a little too conflict-of-interest to be a good idea.

I remember reading something on the subject, but I couldn't tell you now where I saw it, I'm afraid.
