Hi,

Yes it is normal if they have questions about your identity or the genuineness of your relationship. If your parents confirmed your relationship and identity your visa will be granted. The Department is very hot on the integrity of applications these days. In the end it is for the benefit of all Australians.

Regards

It sounds like DIBP are getting hard core on the 801 applications.

This is the 3rd one I have read in the last week where there have been issues.

I thought that once you get your 820 they should not be much problem for your 801 to come along . visiting somebody neighbouring . I wonder what kind of questions they ask around .

I thought that too. I am not sure if it is just a coincidence that we have seen a few lately or if DIBP are now doing extra checks.

I am pretty sure wedding photos with both sets of parents would show they know about the relationship

Mish I think DIBP is trying to slow down PR as well. What a world for genuine couples like us.

Yeah, this is crazy. Guess the 801 isn't just ticking boxes anymore! Or maybe there have been many instances lately of couples breaking up and not telling them so they're cracking down. Honestly, that wouldn't surprise me.

I have been getting al lot of inquiries from people whose relationship has broken down before they got PR or who were scammed ( according to them) by their overseas partner. So there might well be a crackdown underway. As always those that are doing the wrong thing make it hard for everybody else.

Hey alex007,

Just wondering if you lived in India with your Aussie partner/visited India- family and friends after you got in a relationship/married to your partner?
Can you please share a little bit about your case as the information you've shared doesn't explain much.

Look forward to your reply. Thank you for your help
Good Luck!!

Kind Regards,
Becky

What I don't understand is how the neighbours and friends (living in India) of the OP supposed to know whether or not he (living in Australia) is or isn't in a genuine relationship with his partner

And what if someone, as the OP said because of jealousy said something that ticks off the immigration officers, then what will happen, will something as small as an unsatisfactory answer from a neighbor of the applicant (who doesn't live in India anymore) make their relationship not-genuine or a fraud?

For instance even if the OP introduced his partner to his neighbours and friends, how are those people meant to be sure that the couple is in a genuine relationship knowing that the couple doesn't even live in India?

Just a few questions that came to my head
