Just wanted to run my situation past a few people to see if anyone has any advise.
I'm Aussie, been living in the UK on a 2 year youth mobility visa. My boyfriend in British and we have been living together a year in November. We are going to apply for a defacto visa so that he can come back the Aus with me as i am unable to extend my visa.
Trouble is we can not apply until November when we have been living together for a year. My visa runs out mid Feburary. Giving us only 3 months to get the visa approved. I'm seeing most places that there is a 6 month time line for a answer on these visas. I really don't want to have to come home without him and leave him here to organise moving to the other side of the world on his own.
Has anyone had any experiance with getting these visas through quicker. Or applying before they have been living together for a year? Has anyone been able to leave the uk when there visa is up and come straight back in on a holiday visa?
Any help would be great!
