Why You Shouldn’t Lodge Your Australian Fiancée Visa Without the Help of a Migration Agent
The prospective marriage visa (sometimes called a fiancée visa) allows a person from overseas to marry their partner who is either Australian, or is an Australian permanent resident.
This visa only lasts 9 months, so this means you have to marry your partner and apply for a fiancée visa within 9 months of the visa being granted, otherwise you have to leave the country.
Not fulfilling the obligations of this visa will reflect poorly on you for any future visa application you make, which may result in you being separated from your partner for a long time, and can even result in a permanent ban from Australia.
Couples who apply for this themselves or with the help of a migration agent who is inexperienced with fiancée visa, run a high risk of it not being granted.
Couples often come to us after a Prospective Marriage visa rejection, and we have found that it isn’t even the right visa for them to apply for!
We have then taken them through the process for the optimal visa for that couple in their particular circumstances, and they have lived happily ever after together in Australia.
Couples and inexperienced migration agents just do not know what the options are.
Immigration know the options, and will not grant the fiancée visa if it is not the right one.
Then, you have a mark on your record.
Having a visa rejection on your record for any reason whatsoever makes it very challenging to be granted any type of Australian visa in the future.
At that point it is essential (as if it wasn’t before!) that you hire an experienced migration agency to do your next application for you.
The other common mistake couples make when submitting the application for a fiancée visa, is that they do not attach enough supporting evidence.
Couples are always surprised once they come to us and realize the level of detail that Immigration require to make an informed decision on their application.
Again, if Immigration feel that they do not have enough information, they will either ask for additional documents, or just reject the application.
