Sometimes it can also be the field. I have heard law and Accounting are the 2 hard ones for foreigners to get a job in Australia without Australian work experience.

Will you get a UK visa now?
Yeah it's been quite frustrating. He's in the legal sector and had his degree assessed and paid a decent amount of money to do additional units (paying international fees) but it didn't help him. So he went back to the UK and managed to get a position within a week of landing.
So now I am over in the UK for about 6 months - on a tourist visa - to try and minimise the distance. But obtaining a UK spouse visa is a lot harder than obtaining an Australian one so ill go home in March when my visa is up and by the time the visa comes through I will hopefully be back in the UK by September or so. All quite stressful. But he is the one with the earning potential so I wanted to make sure that he was somewhere where he could work in his field. Wouldn't forgive myself if I had forced him to stay in Australia, not being able to work in what he's passionate about.

that's sad to hear, i guess some sectors are harder to find work than other. Hope it all turns out the best for you..

I have been searching to find out what documents are needed from my partner for the PMV. I mentions something about a valid passport but nothing else. Do we have to register first and start the application process to see what is needed?

Thanks

Mish this one is for you. I noticed in your signature that you applied for the PMV and you say "Applied online and no official marriage certificate was provided".

I have been reading through the PMV document checklist and there is a fair bit of evidence documents listed that we must provide like :

1. Evidence that you and your prospective spouse genuinely intend to live in a married relationship

2.Evidence that you and your prospective spouse have met face-to-face as adults and are personally known to each other

how do we get documents like that?
do we just write it up on paper and we both sing it?

we will be applying online btw..

thanks again for your help..

The no marriage certificate was for the 820. BDM had a system issues so they were delayed in issuing our marriage certificate and we were surprised when the 820 got approved before we got the certificate.

The living together after marriage is a hard one. We provided evidence of staying together when I visited him.

With having met in person you just provide photos of the 2 of you together.

Use the search function on the forum. Search "PMV evidence" and you will find lots of posts of people listing the evidence they supplied

Just remember that the PMV is pretty easy visa. So most of the evidence should be pretty easy to gather
