10 Mistakes to Avoid in Australian Partner Visa Applications

Nobody would want to spend over $7, 000 dollars for a partner visa only to be rejected for a few simple reasons—inconsistencies, mistakes, and wrong credentials. With the Australian Department of Home Affairs being rigid in terms of those who will be approved, you should be mindful that you will be throwing away quite a lot of money just by committing a mistake in your application.

If you are in a relationship applying for such, your relationship must be proven reliable and valid. With this, it is a very crucial task that the both of you must be able to provide only the most appropriate requirements they will need for your application.

Let us take a look at the common mistakes every couple applying for a partner is able to do which led them to be rejected—something that we cannot afford to do because primarily speaking, it is expensive. Make your every penny count.

  1.       Reliability issues.

Reliability refers to consistency. And talking about consistency, it matters. This is not only true to relationships but also in your applications. Consistency among all submitted requirements is a must if you are applying for a partner visa. With an immigration officer finding just one inconsistency, consider waving goodbye to your non-refundable application fee because they will not let it pass through them. When you are applying for such a visa, they are commonly asking for multiple documents to be submitted. Many of these requirements may have repetitive information but that is how they are checking the consistency of your presented requirements. With that being said, any inconsistency, even an honest mistake or something you overlooked, can be counted against your application. That is why it is a must that you will draw the timeline of your relationship and refer to your documents for this. It must be coherent towards one another so that its flow is consistent on both sides. You can try cross checking the timelines to your documents as a final checkup before you pass it to the immigration officer.

  1.       Conflicting evidence

This is usually true to couples who might have changed their residence over the span of the application. The application process is typically long and some couples might have moved into a new home and may not be able to declare it in the application. The immigration personnel may interpret it the other way around as if you and your partner have separated already. So it is a must to update such to your immigration officer so they would understand that you just moved into another residence but that does not mean that you have terminated your relationship. Evidence of your relationship should not have conflict with one another or else, expect that you will not get that visa you are aiming for.

  1.       Insufficient evidence

If having conflicting evidence would hurt your application that is also the case if you have submitted insufficient evidence of your relationship towards one another. The most common mistake every couple makes in their application is how they create their relationship statement. This is the foundation of your application and therefore, may have the biggest impact on how the immigration will view the relationship. The description must not be too brief as if you just met but it is a must that you have a very detailed way of telling them how you met your partner and why did you pursue the relationship. Try working on your relationship statement together by spending time drafting them and at the same time, make sure that they are at least four to 10 pages long.

  1.       Vagueness

If you are in a relationship, every key date in the relationship is considered vital information for your application. Immigration officers would find it odd if you are too vague in describing the specific details of your relationship involving these dates. That is why it is necessary for you to create a detailed timeline about how you met, when did you become partners, when did you move in together, when did you got engaged and of course, your marriage. These important dates must not be neglected because if they are inconsistently remembered, doubts will arise from your immigration officers.

  1.       Relationship aspects

If you are going to talk about your relationship, don’t talk about just one specific aspect of it. Discuss everything about it. And when I say everything about it, all aspects must be included. Aside from the biggest and most important dates you have together, it is necessary to discuss the day to day details of your relationship because that is how they see the relationship. It will be helpful to include who pays the bills, how are you sharing the finances, and if you have access to each others accounts. More so, you can also include who washes the dishes or does the household chores. You can also include how do you want to spend the weekend, how do you have fun as a couple and many more.
