Smile Qs for visa 820

hi all,

I'm new to this site but went through few threads from people have similar questions. Here comes thread of mine

Me and my BF(Australian citizen) decided to apply for this 820 visa to extend my stay in Australia. We've been together for 4 months now and gonna register our relationship. My counselor agreed that she'll write a witness statement for us after few times' of relationship counseling. My BF's mother(teacher) can also be our witness because we lived with his parents for the past 4months. We don't have much photos together but we have heaps of text messages to show that we were in love for long.

Do those evidence plus Relationship Registration strong enough for me to get my 820 visa granted successfully? Or what else can I provide as evidence?

Thanks you guys sooooooo much to read, please help me out if you have any ideas.

When you're living with parents and so have no bills for accommodation, you'll need to rely more heavily on other documentation, even with a relationship registration.
If you have some proper documentation from a relationship counsellor, that may help but it is probably not something that has been used too often and a CO might even question you on why a relationship counsellor.
You should be looking at your own bank accounts to see what there is in way of any expenses that can show your support for one another and anything at all that shows a common address as well as common interests.
Personally, I'd think expecting a visa grant on having been together only 4 months might be a bit premature.
What visa are you on now for that could affect getting a relationship registration and even your eligibility to apply for a partner visa.

Thanks very much Wanderer for replying me.

I'm currently holding a Chinese student visa for 2years and it's expiring in 2months
My BF and I have done heaps of road trips around VIC before but unfortunately we don't have much photos/ATM withdraw history to show that ME actually was there with him. We have phone bills to show that we've been contact each other very frequent for 5months, I saved all the movie tickets and music concert tickets that we went to together. About the consoler part, I went to see her simply for a conversation as a workmate (I'm a welfare worker and she works with me). Only his parents and some of my friends can prove that we are living together. I'm afraid those are all the evidence that we'd thought of and collected.....
Anyone has any other thoughts/ideas?? I'll be more than appreciate to hear from you guys. Thanks

If you are now working because you have finished your studies or even if you are working part-time while still studying, have you looked at the skilled visa requirements and even an employer sponsored visa for that would then give you time in Australia to better show a relationship.
Certainly get the relationship registered and Victoriia can by all accounts be a bit more difficult to get that done and you will have to wait for at least a month, so do not delay seeking that.
And with living at your Bf's parents, what about correspondence directed to you there, anything do do with your studying or work, club memberships etc. for it is not going to be so much about movie tickets or phone calls that will help you but evidence of you living together and the more you have other than statements from the parents, all the better.

Thanks Wanderer of pointing that out. I'm actually put this thought in consideration too at the moment. My current employer will not sponsor me on the skilled visa. However, another business can provide me sponsorship as a Sales manager but what I studied for the past 2years was welfare work(under Chinese student visa). There comes another question, is that possible to get an employer sponsored visa (not skilled visa) in my situation? Or I'm willing to complete a short diploma course on Sales/marketing for couple of months if it'll help me to apply for that visa.

Thanks again for helping me out !!

To be successful in an mployer sponsorship visa you and the employer will need to show you have the qualifications and some experience to suit a nominated position, that position also needing to be for an occupation on the sponsorship listing.
You ought to have a read of that visa to familiarise yourself with the details.
