Partner Visa Application High Risk Country

Partner Visa Application High Risk Country

Case Study : High Risk Partner Visa Application

When it comes to applying for a prospective marriage or a partner visa, these partner visa applications can be difficult in the first place, as there is a lot that goes with this high risk partner visa application and a lot of personal details you have to include in the process.

We completely understand how daunting this can be in the first place, let alone for someone from a high risk country, not knowing whether or not they could even get an approval for the application.

What would be even worse is, are you from a high risk country and have overstayed your previous visa, been refused a visa or had a visa cancelled before or now in Australia?

All these situations can make your high risk country partner visa application granted by Immigration much more complicated.

Our theory here, is that it will be more likely for an applicant from a high risk country to be granted a prospective marriage or partner visa, if they use an agency or agent who has had previous experience in doing just that.

Make sure they have successfully argued more than just one or two high risk applications, and ask them to be able to explain how the visa was granted to the applicants.

This research for this case study comes from the involvement from our Senior Migration Agent, Indah Melindasari, and her team from ONE derland Consulting, including the Case Manager and the Customer Service Manager.

ONE derland Consulting has assisted many clients from a number of high risk countries and has had them be granted visas, some with testimonials that are already listed on this website for your viewing pleasure.

I want to help you picture this scenario in your head:

high risk partner visa application option

 

The applicant is from Iran, he meets a woman online from Australia and they talk for quite a while and decide to be a couple. They want to be together in Australia and get married. Now what? He has never been to Australia before and doesn’t know the process to get an Australian visa.

The sponsor from Australia is going through a divorce and needs to get this solved before she can be legally wed in Australia to the applicant from Iran and become his sponsor.

The problems they face are the fact that the applicant is from a high risk country making it more difficult to obtain a visa, that the sponsor must be legally able to be married in Australia, and that they do not know all of the requirements for the different subclasses of visas.

The applicant and sponsor realise that they have a choice: they can do research and apply for the visa themselves or they can use an agent to assist them in applying for a visa. They know that the applicant is from a high risk country but what does this mean how can he be approved the visa?

They realise that this may mean the visa takes longer to be approved, that they made need to provide more evidence or maybe it’s something they have never even heard of?

This is a real life situation and has unfolded in front of our eyes as a company, we know the stress that can occur in this type of situation, especially for someone already having a hard time.

What should this couple do? They are completely free to do everything on their own, as I will mention in option 1 below.

Option 1:

They apply for the visa themselves, let’s say the prospective marriage visa, and the sponsor is able to do the necessary paperwork for her divorce.

So, they have solved two out of three issues, but what about the fact that the applicant is still from a high risk country, what do they do to help with this? The sponsor in this case has been sponsored for an Australian partner visa in the past and herself being from a high risk country of the Czech Republic, she knows that there was more to be done and what a big hassle it was to do with her previous sponsor.

This will take up too much of her already used time, as she runs her own business and goes to school. She also wanted to get to see her fiancé while his visa was in processing but was not quite sure how to go about this.

Option 2:

To go with an experienced agent who knows exactly how to handle your case and get you the desired visa, as soon as they can. This would include with proven history on how to do so, as well as other clients with positive outcomes from high risk countries.

Our agency, ONE derland Consulting can provide this evidence and has had positive outcomes for clients from high risk countries.

We provided the client with all of their options when they came to see us for a consultation, then they choose the best scenario that was right for them.

In this case as observed above, the Prospective Marriage visa, then to apply for a Visitor visa only after the Prospective Marriage visa was in processing.

This would then give the applicant more reason to return to his home country, giving him and her a chance to see each other in Australia while his visa was in processing.

high risk partner visa documentation

 

All of this wouldn’t come to be, had they not provided the right documentation, reasons for visiting, a lot of evidence of genuine relationship, solid application and sponsor letters. There are SO many things to consider in your Prospective Marriage and/or your partner visa application.

In every application for the Prospective Marriage visa you are also asked to have a medical exam and provide documentation on your character, in other words a police check from any country you have spent 12 months or more in.

This process in low risk countries can be fairly easy, however, in high risk/war torn countries this has been proven to be quite difficult to come by. As in low risk countries the governments are well set up and can give you this documentation, but in others this is not as easy.

Then below documentation was required for the Prospective Marriage, but in cases of high risk we always ask for more of each to gather, compile and submit a bullet proof application:

  • Provide a certified copy of the death certificate, divorce documents or statutory declaration separation documents; for anyone, including yourself, who has been widowed, divorced or permanently separated.
  • Proof that you and your prospective spouse have met face-to-face and are known to each other personally.
  • Evidence that you intend to marry your prospective spouse within 9 months of being granted the visa (such as, a letter from the person who will officiate at the wedding).
  • Show that you and your prospective spouse genuinely plan on living as husband and wife.
  • You will need written statements showing the history of your relationship together, such as:
    • How you met your prospective spouse, when you met and where you were,
    • Explain how the development of your relationship played out,
    • Show the date of your engagement,
    • Provide evidence of your joint activities,
    • Have significant dates that occurred in your relationship,
    • Your future plans as a married couple.
    • The above application was finally approved after this was provided to Immigration and the couple is now finally living in Australia happily without any more stress for the applicant’s visa.
