thank you
Apologies for the late reply.,
Engaus is correct!After the payment is made and processed, you SHOULD be able to start uploading your documents without any wait.

Thanks for your help Engaus. Good Luck to you both!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hey Indu,

The statutory declaration by the supporting witness MUST be certified. Form 888 can only be filled and signed by Australian citizens and/or permanent residents so your family and friends in India can't fill it. Just thought I'd share this in case you didn't know

Having said that, they can sign an affidavit or just a letter explaining the details of your relationship.
I got my parents (combined) and friends (individual) in India to sign affidavits, I got them notarized by the court in India.

I think it should be alright if the documents are scanned to you.
Seniors, please help. Thanks!

Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

No worries! Happy to help

As I mentioned in my previous post, you can get witnesses from India to either write a letter signed, dated with their contact details like phone number, email address (just in case DIBP wishes to contact them to to inquire them about you) OR an affidavit notarized by the court in India.

IMO the scanned copies of the supporting documents should be alright as they WILL have the contact details of your friends/family on which DIBP could reach them if required.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

Firstly, thank you Becky for the helpful and insightful answers! This is my first post and I registered just to thank you! I am in the same situation as OP and just about to apply for onshore partner visa online.

I do have one question about the application, does my partner automatically get assigned a Bridging Visa when I complete submitting the applications online?
We ran out of time preparing for her visa application, and her current tourist visa expires in about a weeks time, should I apply for a extended tourist visa for her?

thanks in advance.
(apologies if this is the wrong place to ask please let me know and I'll start a new thread)

Yes, I am almost sure you need to get the statements certified. Following is an extract from the stat declaration form 888--
"If you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident and
you reside outside Australia, your statement cannot be
considered a statutory declaration under Australian law, even if
it is made using this form or the template provided by the
Attorney-Generalís Department. However, under policy, your
statement should be witnessed or certified according to the
legal practices of the country in which you make the
statement. Failing that, it should be witnessed by a person
whose occupation or qualification is comparable to those
listed above. This person should sign, date and specify their
occupation at the bottom of the statement.
" hope it helps.

Hey andy,

Welcome to the Forum
Thank you so much for the kind gesture. Happy to help.

1. You can extend your partner's visitor visa only if it doesn't have condition 8503- No Further Stay attached to it. If it does, then you won't be able to extend her stay in Australia, she will HAVE to depart Australia to apply for any other visa.

2. This is only possible if her visitor visa does not have the condition 8503 attached to it; When you submit the partner visa application your partner will be issued a bridging visa A which will give her full work and study rights
Below is more information on BVA:-
Bridging visa A ‚€“ BVA ‚€“ (subclass 010)
This BVA will be valid until a decision is made on the partner visa application and will be linked to your partner's visitor visa. The BVA will kick in as soon as her visitor visa will run out.

3. You need to arrange the application quickly and apply for the partner visa before her visitor visa expires. I don't have a lot of knowledge about the online applications I'm guessing as soon as you submit the application and pay for it online the BVA will be issued.
Seniors, Please help. Thanks!

Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky
