Not at all. I handed it in this morning (12th) and his WHV expires tomorrow (13th).

My partner was with a friend, so I went to the Melbourne office alone. I walked in, there was a desk and a little line to queue. They said "next", I told the woman I was there to hand in a partner visa application - she gave me a ticket with a number. I sat down and waited 15 minutes, then I heard "ticket no' xxx to desk xxxx".

I went to the desk and sat down, the person who took the application was a young man, very polite and nice. He took the stack of papers out of my folder, he made sure I had the two main forms, then he started doing things on his computer. I told him that my partner's visa expires tomorrow, he said that's fine as he was issuing the Bridging visa A straight away.

He took my bank check, gave me a receipt. He gave a letter detailing that the application had been received, and an ID/reference number for the application. He said my partner was eligible for Medicare now. He asked if I had any questions, I just asked how to give my marriage certificate from BDM when we got it, and he said to mail it in.

That was it Nothing to be scared of.

Thanks Furryball - good luck to you too. I really hope we both succeed as well as francesco (5 days !!!!!). I know mine won't be approved so quickly as I have to put in one more document this friday, but I hope the wait won't be long

Let us all know about the progress of your app!!

I think you should be fine - our application was waaaaaayyy smaller (about one quarter of furryball's stack I think), only about 50 pages including everything. And we got PR straight away.
