Oh, but why does it say that I need to provide police checks and birth certificates for both my partner and I on the Migration Booklet?

What are the documents that you recon we should have ready by then?

You only need police checks of the applicant, the sponsor only needs a police checks if a dependent child is involved.
And yes, you do need birth certificates of both partners, may mmis meant you don't need them right from the beginning to make a valid application but you'll have to upload them within 28 days.

You will need a police check and health check before your application can be approved, but you don't need to submit them immediately. Many people wait until their case office requests them to minimise the risk of them expiring before the visa is granted. If you're applying through an overseas embassy, you should follow the process set out by the embassy.

There's no deadline for uploading the medical and police check - DIBP will ask for them and many embassies tell applicants not to complete these until requested. Once requested applicants are told to provide them within 28 days (or alternatively provide evidence that they've applied to get them, and then they can be provided once completed).

On page 11, it says that Partner Visas cannot be currently lodged online. What the hell?

If you are applying online then that is fine but if you are applying via paper all evidence needs to be ready with the application.

This is just saddening.

3 grand is already a lot for Australians themselves. Imagine for us foreigners earning less than Australians minimum wage AND our currency is at least 3 times less than AUD.

Now it's going up to at least 4.5 grand to 7 grand? Daylight robbery really.

My fiancé may be able to afford it because he has a good job (thankfully) but what about the rest of us who isn't as fortunate? Some may have to save for at least 3 years just to apply. Sigh.

And those who have payments to make on houses, bills, children.. every where prices are increasing but salary isn't.

I honestly hope their service would be better than what it is to justify this hike.
