My partner and I just found out about the new partner visa changes coming about next month!
Due to this we are now rushing to get her application in order,
The only documentation I am worried about is her country's criminal history check which can take 2-3 months (super long processing time ) I also need to get a check from her country (where we met) so I too will need to wait 2-3 months to get my check done.
I can't seem to find any solid information on the rule regarding documentation/evidence and the visa application process,
Are we able to "apply" and pay the fee now, and just gather the documentation over the next 3 months, that way we've joined the "queue" so to speak and the new partner visa changes won't affect us?
In other words, can we get her on a Bridging Visa now despite not having all the documentation in order for another 3 months?
Thanks so much!
