309 Visa Question

I am helping a mate go through the 309/100 Visa paperwork and we disagree on one question, he thinks that now he is married (only 3 x weeks) that he does not need to show the 12 months living together scenario, I say he will still need to address that question.


Anyone know which one of us is right ?

You are correct Gav, got a friend with same issue at the moment and they have been asked to provide living together supporting evidence. They dont have it but been together a few years.

I did talk with your buddy a few weeks ago about doing a student visa then convert it to a 820. Nar can then stay in Perth. Call me if you need too.

Tell him not to be lazy .. 555

1st rule when applying for visas, give them more than they ask for

Or you run the risk of being delayed, when the case officer has to put your application in the " not complete basket" and contact you with a "please send us this or that "

Anytime you get that type of reply, the delay can mean months before the case officer picks up your application again

2nd rule of visa applications, don't upset your case officers day with insufficient documentation, by creating more work for your case officer, ie having to send you a reply about insufficient documentation ...5555

Or you could get a lazy case officer who you need to kick up the arse because they ask for documentation that you provided 9 months earlier.

I waited one day after the "supposed" up to 12 months to process and gave it to them with double barrels and CC to two members of parliament.

The office of one pollie contacted me direct about a week later, but I said no need to follow up thanks at this stage as Immi had rang me 2 days after E-mail very apologetic and looking into why not finalised in time frame.

Technically he is right and if wanted to push would succeed. But may have to push it to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal which has a current wait time of 1725 days. So in the words of a song "You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em"

Mate of a mate is going for a spouse visa for his TG.... anyone heard of this sort of request being made?

They want her 18 y/o daughter to have a medical now. Even though she is not part of the visa application. They have not replied or even acknowledged my E mails about this. Just have to smile and jump through their hoops

Thanks Rivo, what's the logic behind it? What are they looking for?

(Yeah, I just asked if a Government Department has a reason for creating paperwork :take that:)
