Fiance Visa Help


I am an American citizen engaged to an Australian citizen. I am currently 21 years old and so is my Fiance. Me and my partner met online in 2008 and last summer, June 2010, I came to Australia on a work and Holiday visa. We became engaged in Jan. 2011. My visa runs out this June so I will be heading back to the states where I will apply for my Fiance Visa. All the paperwork required is very new to me but I know I will eventually get there. I plan on sending all the main paperwork immediately after returning to the states. I understand that the FBI check results may take some time, even though my records are pretty clean. So, I was planning on sending that later along with the medical when I get all that completed. Is this ok to do? Also when it comes to the payment how exactly do I send it? Should I have a money order included in my doc. packet? I had a look at the checklist on the Australian gov. site so I am somewhat knowledgeable on what to send but has anyone else went through this and can give me an idea of how they organized their documents?

If you're applying in the States, you need to search for your neareast Australian Embassy, as this is where you will be sending or handing in the application and all the other documents.

The embassy site will also give you a list of what you need to hand in, as well as whether you need to do the medical before applying or after. Some embassies are strict about this aspect because it should be done by approved doctors and if done by an unapproved doctor, you may have to then do it again.

As for payment, the embassy site will also mention this. Usually they take money/ postal orders or can charge your credit card.

There is a sticky thread about presenting visa applications:

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please let us know
