Announcing The Second Edition Of “The Australian Partner Visa Guide” – New And Updated Tips And Tricks To Get You Through The Australian Partner Visa Process
The Second Edition Of “The Australian Partner Visa Guide”
At the beginning of the year I signalled that I wanted to write additional supplements to the book. I published the second stage visa processing book at the end of January and then I set to work on the second edition of The Australian Partner Visa Guide.
Unfortunately the process to write the second edition was not as fast because I was inundated with application review requests. But that’s good news for the second edition.
Because I was doing more and more application reviews I was able to see where everyone was repeating the same mistakes over and over again. I thought I had addressed these in my book but after asking a few of the readers I realised that it wasn’t as clear as I had hoped.
That’s why I took all their questions and wrote about them.
I also took more examples of the good, the bad and the ugly statutory declarations and supporting evidence and I added it to the second edition.
Here’s what you’re going to get in the second edition:
- 199 pages of The Australian Partner Visa Guide – an additional 60 pages of content
- 2 guides on obtaining your health examination – health declaration and eMedical systems
- 2 Additional samples of GOOD sponsor and applicant statutory declarations – 3 in total
- 2 Additional samples of BAD sponsor and applicant statutory declarations – 2 in total
- 1 sample of a BAD form 888 of a supporting witness with explanations
- 1 sample of a GOOD form 888 of a supporting witness with explanations
- How to prepare documents sample PDF with instructions
- Additional tutorial on practical points of the online application system
- Sample application review report
- Sample images of documents you have to submit
4 Benefits Of Applying For A Partner Visa Outside Of Australia
There’s been a big upheaval in visa land a.k.a Australian immigration laws, particularly about permanent residency and pathways to citizenship. But buried deep within the turmoil were 2 sneaky even more upsetting news: price hikes and prolonged processing times.
So I talked about the price hikes here and although I don’t think you should submit incomplete applications (or do I?), you really should get your applications in before 1 July if you want to get ahead of the price hikes. Note: that’s 1 July EVERY YEAR.
Recently the Australian Government revealed their Budget and naturally in a game of pluses and minuses in order to balance the nation’s books, there’d be winners and losers. Unfortunately my dear readers, we are the losers in this one.
Not only will the fees for partner visa applications go up on 1 July 2017, they’ll continue to go up every year in line with inflation.

“The Permanent Partner Visa Process” – Everything You Need To Get Ready And Succeed In The Second Stage Partner Visa Processing
After the success of ‘The Australian Partner Visa Guide’, I set a goal myself for 2017 to write the next book in the series. Every day for 1-2 hours after work I put my writing hat on and wrote, analysed, edited and made sure that I had a damn good book worth putting out.
Introducing ‘The Permanent Partner Visa Process’. I apologise for the lack of a creative title but it is what it is – plain and simple English so that you can do it yourself.
‘The Permanent Partner Visa Process’ details the entire procedure and includes how to answer the call for more information to start your second stage visa processing. It also comes with partner visa to Australia interview questions!

As we approach the end of the year, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, feedback and suggestions. To continue to give back where it matters I have some exciting news and developments for the year to come.
I know a lot of you have started this daunting and lengthy process and it has always been a goal of mine to make it as easy as it can be without having to pay a migration agent a king’s ransom for help.
Since the launch of the book, feedback has come through thick and strong and for that I thank you. Without your updates, feedback and suggestions I wouldn’t be able to tell if what I do is helpful or not.
So let me just say this: I hear you. I see you. And I know your pains.
Speeding Up Your Partner Visa Application Processing Time
I’ve been going through a lot of partner visa application reviews lately and the number 1 problem that I’ve noticed in an increasing amount of applications is:

This can lead to:
- Invalid visa applications
- Delays in visa processing
- Possible visa refusal
- Requests for further information
- Investigations by the Department
