Adding spouse before lodging 189 but mentioned single in eoi?

(Ashish) #1

I have mentioned single in my eoi. and going to marry before lodging application. will there be any problem to add spouse?? how much it will cost to add partner ?

will it still be possible to add spouse after i lodge my visa? as invitation is expiring soon. how this will affect my visa grant outcome duration??

There is no issue in adding spouse after lodging or before lodging even when you mentioned single in EOI.

There is a link that appears on your application to make changes to your application and inform case officer about your changed circumstances after you have lodged (submitted) your application.

Marriage date before Visa Submit

It is better that you add your spouse before submitting the visa application if your marriage date is falling before your visa submit date.

Marriage date after Visa Submit date

Once you are married, summit your spouse papers and marriage certificate using the change in circumstances link.

This should be okay.

The fees for Adult, spouse and kid is mentioned here:

Dear Anil,
I had applied 189 visa on first week of November 2018. I recently got engaged but will not marry before July 2019. I think I will get my visa before my marriage. Please I request you to provide me feeback on following things:

  1. Do I have to inform DHA that i have got engaged? or it doesnot matter unless I marry.
  2. I have heard while applying partner visa after i got my 189 visa, its lengthy process. Can I bring my partner in tourist visa after I apply that.

Thank you.

You can get PR for your spouse only if she is married to you. If you don’t get married, how will you apply for her visa?

You can apply other visa for spouse as you want including tourist visa.

Thank you for your quick response.
I was wondering if engaged status is changes in circumstances. As in website, there is written that, we need to inform about marriage or de-facto status. I thought engagement means starting de-facto relation.

No, de-facto is not engagement.
De-facto is something like living together without marriage.

No, de-facto is not engagement.
De-facto is something like living together without marriage.

All right then. I do not need to inform DHA. As I will be applying partner visa after I got 189, DHA asks for genuinness of relationship, but I will be applying partner visa as soon as I marry at that time.
Will it be good evidence if I mention engagment now in my application to prove contnuing, long, genuine relationship?

It’s your choice if you want. To inform.
