    I just want to know about my subsequent 485 wife is going to apply 485 visa and I am not in Australia. So, is there any financial evidence required for my visa.
    If yes, then how much is good enough?.

    Hi We have been in a same sex relationship for over 10 years, I have financially supported my partner in the Philippines all that time. I have visited him 13 times during that time the longest say was over 2 months. He has been here twice staying over 2 months at a time, his 3rd visa was denied stating insufficient evidence that he would return ( even though he had been here twice already) and that it wont be granted unless his circumstances change.
    That made it impossible for us to for fill the 12 months living together requirement for partner visa as I was unable to go there due to my job and supporting out relationship. I have ample evidence of our genuine relationship and many family and friends willing to give written statements supporting our relationship. Now the the laws have changed in Australia would we have access to the perspective marriage visa.

    Hi Daniel and thank you for your comment. We are yet to find out what this could mean for immigration law in terms of partner visa applications, we are hoping that there will be a positive change. If you are interested we will note to keep you in the loop once we hear from the Department of Immigration & Border Protection. Just email us on

    Hi Niki Thanks for replying. I have been reading on resent sites stuff like this from

    “Marriage equality advocates have applauded changes to federal immigration laws allowing equal treatment for same-sex couples applying for partner visas. The Immigration Department announced on Saturday it had broadened the category of applicants for partner visas to include same-sex couples after marriage equality took effect that day.
    Under the changes, a person in a same-sex marriage can now apply for partner visas as their partner’s “spouse” rather than as their “de facto partner”. Same-sex partners with a genuine intention to marry their partner in Australia can also now apply for the Prospective Marriage visa.
    Previously, same-sex partners had to apply for a permanent inter dependency visa and fulfill stricter criteria to prove the existence of their relationship, a process marriage equality campaigner Rodney Croome told SBS had been distressing and expensive for some couples.” Have you been notified of these changes, I am a bit confused. Regards Daniel.

    Thanks Daniel for your comment. What the changes mean is that previously a same sex couple (even when married lawfully overseas) could only apply for a partner visa on de-facto partner grounds. With the recent change, these can now finally be applied for on spousal grounds as well. Where the prospective marriage comment is coming from is in terms of that visa (known as a TO 300) for someone to come in to Australia and marry their partner. That arrangement was only open to heterosexual couples before whereas now because the Marriage Act recognises same sex couples, it is also possible to look at bringing an overseas same sex partner in for the purposes of an Australian marriage.
    I hope that helps with any confusion.
