I agree with Pippen. Ours is not complicated but we had a Senior Case Officer as well. I don't know how they allocate the CO so don't worry Aussieboy07.

By the way Aussieboy07, how long is your relationship?

Thanks Pippen
This has eased my mind a bit as i have recieved many responses quite negative about the request for further documentation. We do not have an agent to advise us and have done it all on our own.

I think the main difference is that they never put quota limits on married visas, though they can to PMV. I think the married visa works out to be cheaper but no difference in processing time unless a quota is imposed on PMV

Quotas for the number of visas approved in a certain year can be imposed if demand is excessively high.

Hi js8_may2009! Visa fee for both PMV and Partner Visa is the same - Php119,500 (AUD2680).

Which is faster? Some says PMV (a friend got her PMV in 3 months) but it still depends on circumstances of every case so we cannot tell which one is faster.. The difference I think would be the evidence to prove that your relationship is genuine and continuing.. I think more documents needed if Partner Visa.

Hope this helps!

Got question. Do they normally send you an acknowledgment letter when they received your PMV application? How soon?

Hi,

Are you planning for de-facto/spouse visa? You can download the partner visa booklet together with the forms needed such as 40sp,47sp,80,med forms and character forms in the website www.immi.gov.au.
I lodge my papers through post office dec 28 and got my acknowledge letter jan 2 but paid the old price which is really great. Upon reading the booklet you'll gain information in regards to what things are needed for your visa,.
