Celebrating a Milestone with the release of the Fifth Edition of Australia’s best DIY visa guide

In a remarkable journey that began in 2016, “Australian Partner Visa Guide: Love Shouldn’t Cost You Everything” by Fiona Chan has become a trusted resource not only for individuals navigating the complex visa process but also for migration agents entering in the market. Today, the guide is set to launch its latest edition, marking a significant milestone in its long history.

A History of Empowerment

Since its humble beginnings, the guide has been a beacon of support, especially during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic. Many couples, separated due to travel restrictions, found solace in the guide’s detailed instructions, empowering them to manage their visa applications independently. Throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns, Fiona worked tirelessly to help couples during a period of great uncertainty. With rules changing almost weekly, there wasn’t enough time to update the blog or the book with the temporary measures put in place to address the unique challenges posed by the pandemic. However, as these measures are rolled back, Fiona has diligently updated the guide to reflect the latest developments, making the new edition the most up-to-date resource available.

Application Review Service

Going beyond the guide, Fiona is re-introducing an application review service, offering users the opportunity to have their submissions meticulously reviewed by an expert. This service, available at a fraction of the cost of hiring an immigration lawyer, ensures that every application is scrutinised by a knowledgeable professional.

Migration Agents are buying it too

Although the guide was developed for couples wishing to do their own partner visa applications, migration agents are also recognising the value of this guide, with many purchasing it to enter the market or hand out to their clients.

Key Features of the New Edition

Reader-Friendly Redesign

The guide undergoes a redesign for enhanced readability, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable reading experience for users. The format underwent an uplift and meticulous editing to ensure that all information is correct at time of writing.

Statutory Declaration Samples Library

A groundbreaking addition is the Statutory Declaration Samples Library, consolidating all relevant declarations into one comprehensive resource. Each declaration is accompanied by detailed explanations on what makes them effective and good or bad examples of the principles in the guide. This 130+ page additional resource combines over 19 best and worst samples of statutory declarations and personal written statements so you can see what works and doesn’t work. The library contains samples of the sponsor and applicant statutory declarations as well as Form 888s from supporting witnesses.

Up-to-date and detailed information not found elsewhere

With over 220 pages of comprehensive and detailed information, readers receive insights typically available only to those consulting with migration agents and immigration lawyers. The guide provides all the necessary tools to complete your own partner visa application, conveniently at your fingertips. With a one-time payment, you gain lifetime access to the resources.

Practical Resources and Real-life Application Samples

The guide includes templates and worksheets to help couples structure and organise their visa applications effectively. The included workflow and step-by-step instructions provides you a starting point for such a monumental task. Included are also real-life application samples with names and details changed to protect the individuals’ privacy.

Fiona’s Reflection

Fiona reflects on the journey of the guide, stating, “It’s immensely gratifying to see the impact this guide has had on couples, especially during such trying times. The application review service is an extension of our commitment to providing accessible support.” “Australian Partner Visa Guide: Love Shouldn’t Cost You Everything ” continues to be a trusted resource, even by migration agents, evolving with the times to empower individuals on their visa journey.
