Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

8 Tips for Successful Partner Visa Application

8 Tips for Successful Partner Visa Application

Successful Partner Visa Application On The First Try, Is It Possible?

Aiming for a successful Partner Visa application can be daunting, not only because of the number of documents you need to provide, but because the partner visa has one of the largest costs applied to its processing, depending on the type you need.

You want to get it right first time. ONE derland Consulting is a registered visa agent, and has 8 helpful tips on how to get your partner visa application accepted first time.

So here is the 8 best action you must consider for a successful Australian partner visa application:

1. Understand what type of Australian partner visa you want to apply for and why

There are three types of visa that come under “partner” visas:

  1. Prospective Marriage visa

  • This is a temporary visa for engaged couples
  • Once it is granted, you must marry your partner within 9 months, or you will have to leave the country
  • You then apply for the temporary and permanent partner visa if you wish to continue living in Australia

      2. Partner (Temporary)

  • This is a temporary visa granted while your permanent partner visa is being processed
  • You can apply for a temporary and permanent visa at the same time

      3. Partner (Permanent)

  • This is a permanent visa granted two years after the application is submitted. However, there are exemptions: if you and your partner have been together for more than 2 years and have children; or if you have been in a relationship for 5 years or more.
  • For details on exemptions, please check our website.

2. Ensure eligibility criteria before you apply

There are a number of criteria you have to fulfill before your application will even be considered, such as the length of time you and your partner have been together.

You should ensure you are able to fulfill all the criteria for the partner visa you would like, because if you submit an application and it turns out you are not eligible, you would have just wasted the cost of that visa application.

You do not get the money back if your partner  visa is rejected.

Particularly for some partner visas, which can be $ 7000 AUD, it is not a small amount of money to lose and then have to pay again if you choose to re-apply partner visa.

3. Supplying Official Documentation

There is a substantial amount of official documents to provide the immigration office, such as bank statements, proof of good health, joint ownership/ rental of housing, etc, which is detailed on the immigration website.

You must ensure you supply all the required documents to show you are taking the process seriously, and you can be sure of a successful application.

4. Supplying Personal Documentation

The immigration office also requires proof that your relationship is genuine.

The type of evidence required may differ depending on how long you have been together and the type of visa you’re applying for.

You may be asked to provide quite personal information. To ensure a successful partner visa application, you must give as much information as possible.

You will need to be aligned on many questions such as how did you meet, when did the relationship start, significant dates and locations, etc. If you have ever travelled together on holiday, you will have to provide proof of that too.

Some may even have to provide screenshots of text messages if they are lacking other evidence.

You should provide proof that others know about your relationship, with photos of social occasions of the both of you with your friends and family.

Some of your friends and family will have to write statements to explain how long they have known you both, and that your relationship is genuine.

It may be uncomfortable to give this level of detailed information about your relationship to strangers, but giving as much of the information as possible really will help your case.

5. Prove yourself an asset to Australia

You need to consider that many people are trying to relocate to Australia, every day; why should you be chosen out of all those people?

If you have children, or are in a long term relationship with someone who lives permanently in Australia, that will certainly strengthen your case.

However, if you think you may have quite a weak case compared to others, explain to immigration what you can do for Australia, rather than what it can do for you. Prove your dedication and good character.

6. Understand any challenges your application may encounter

If you have anything in your case that may cause immigration to reject or refuse your application, be prepared with strong and sufficient arguments for why they should accept you.

For example, if you have a criminal conviction in your home country, you should concentrate on gathering solid evidence as to why you will never behave unlawfully again.

7. Respond promptly to any requests from Department of  Immigration

If you do not respond to additional queries or requests from immigration within a sensible timeframe, they will come to a decision about your case based on the evidence at hand, and this could result in your application being rejected.

It also shows that you are not taking them, or your emigration to Australia seriously.

If their request will take some time for you to respond to, you should send them a holding email explaining when you will be able to get them the information they need.

8. Get a professional help from registered immigration agent

Perhaps the most crucial of all to get a successful partner visa application, we strongly advise everyone applying for these visas to employ a registered immigration agent.

You can choose to apply for a visa yourself without any agent at all.

However it is a long, complex and demanding process to take on as an individual. It really helps to get the experts in, who know every possible way of getting you a visa even when there seem to be many roadblocks ahead.

If you do decide to employ a migration agent, it really pays to employ one that is registered with Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA).

They assign every registered agent with a registration number, called, MARN. When talking with an agent, you should always ask for the MARN before going any further, and especially before handing over any money.

If an agent is not registered with MARA, they may take your money and do the visa application for you; however it is quite likely they will just take your money and disappear.

To check that your agent has given you a genuine number, you can check the name or number against the register on the MARA website.
