Oh no I hope you can get a way out of this unfortunate situation, Aussieboy. After waiting for so long, you and your fiance don't deserve another setback like this.


I read it somewhere in the forum that the initial entry would depend on when your health/police checks will expire. That's why the initial entry of approved applicants vary.

Hi sugarstoned...how are you?

I saw in your thread that you migrated with a 309 Temporary Visa. I will be applying the same early next year. I do not know with your case, maybe everything went smooth? But my case is rather complicated. Also that I cannot afford a lawyer so I'm really starting from scratch and hope that I will get insights and advises in this wonderful Forum.

I will be applying a Partners Visa from Cebu based on De Facto Relationship. ( My partner is an Australian Citizen and she's living with me now, while I am a Filipino Citizen and have marriage record here in the Philippines [though I have separated from my wife for many years now] ). One impt requirement is that me and my partner live together for at least 12 months before lodging our application.

BUT what is confusing me is the different opinions of Australian Immigration Lawyers/Agents. Some said that I should get an Annulment of my marriage 1st, to be able to apply for the above De Facto Partners Visa. Some said I do not need an annulment.

Any opinion or advise you can give will be highly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Oh Aussieboy - My heart is breaking for you. I have unfortunately never heard of them giving any leeway on this at all. I even read on another forum about someone who was hospitalized and missed his initial entry date as a result - they didn't even cut HIM any slack. I really, really hate to say this, but I don't think your chances are good. If anyone can help you it's Mark - but I don't think even he will be able to help with this one.

Chicken999 - Unfortunately, you're incorrect about this. The "initial entry date" is the LAST date by which you can enter Oz and have your visa be valid. After that date, if you have not entered the country, your visa is invalidated. The "last date to enter" is misleading - I really wish they would call it something else. The "last date to enter" is the LAST date you can get into the country using the visa (AFTER you have validated it). So in other words... You have to fly in before the initial entry date. Then you can go in and out of the country as many times as you want, over and over again, but the last time you can get BACK in the country on that visa is the "last date to enter" date.

And incidentally, this has nothing to do with spouse visa versus PMV. The initial entry date is USUALLY one year from either the medical or the police checks, whichever was done first. It looks like Aussieboy's police checks were done in August 2012, so the initial entry date was August 2013.

The only thing that's strange is that it looks like the police checks were done at the end of August, and the initial entry date was at the beginning, so if anything they were a few weeks early. But the initial entry date is at their discretion, and once it's assigned, it is nearly impossible to get them to change it so you can enter later. And that's if you notice it before you've missed it... once you've missed it, they just invalidate the visa.

That's why so many embassies are beginning to ask applicants to wait to supply medical and police checks until further on in the process - because as they take longer to grant, that means there is less and less time to enter the country once the grant happens if the police checks and medicals are about to expire.

UGH, just UGH. My heart is breaking for Aussieboy.

Hi guys!

Need your advice..

We wanna apply for Subclass 600 while waiting for PV grant.. But me & my hubby are not sure which stream is much better/easier for us to do:
-Tourist (to be lodged here in PH) or
-Family Sponsored Stream (need to be lodged in Oz by my hubby)?

Has anyone here applied for VV under Family stream? How long is the processing time?

Kindly share your experiences.. :-)
