    Only advice I can give is to get as much info about your relationship to show that it 'is not a marriage of convenience'.

     

    Stuff that can show how long you have been together, who pays for what etc. if you are living together get as much info on who pays what bills, bank statements etc.. Basically anything that can give 100% validity to your relationship.

     

    Enjoy and good luck with the visa application and I hope the big day is a great one.

     

    Cheers,

    May I suggest you consult a registered migration agent. In the circumstance you have described there are good strategies available that are not immediately obvious.

    Hi,

     

    I am Australian and my husband Scottish. We have recentley received our visa - it took a full 6 months, however they admitted they were quite behind. The only advice I can give is give as much detail as possible. We have been together 14 years and married over 7 and they still asked for evidence for 3 months we had missed in our bills/paperwork etc. I put in loads of photos, invitations, bills, letters and evidence.

    The medical was asked for after just 4 days of them getting our application. It felt like we had to wait forever - I had to phone and e-mail to chase it up.

    Good luck.

    I think 5 to 6 months is the average time for a partner visa - well it would appear that way when you look on the Poms in Oz website.

    Ours was exactly 6 months - to the day - I got fed up waiting and finally e-mailed 1 week before the 6 months. Only then did we find out our embassy person was on maternity leave, would have thought we would have been informed before this so we knew who to contact for any reason. I then had to e-mail 2 different people and spent 2 days trying to phone the right person to be told - very casually - we are very behind and I will try and get the paperwork sent before then end of the day. I actually had to ask " so we have the visa then" !!!!

    I am just pleased it is done and dusted.

    Good luck ec - honey!!!

    Ec - on Poms in Oz they have a very good thread about how long a Partners Visa takes and if you let them have the initials of your CO then you can get feedback on what they are like.

     

    Just for info ours was LG and hey we're very good.
