Onshore Partner Visa refused (not meeting Schedule 3 criteria) - is Offshore possible?

Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice to see of we are able to new apply for an Offshore Partner Visa (309).

We applied for an Onshore Partner Visa after my partner had her student visa refused and hence then fell into the requirement to meet Schedule 3 criteria.  DIBP refused the Onshore Partner Visa as they believed we did not meet Schedule 3 criteria and compelling reasons.  We then chose not to pursue an AAT review.

We are both now living overseas together and subsequently married, and wonder if we can apply for an Offshore Partner Visa?

It looks like we can, but some wording on the DIBP site indicates that after a previous Partner Visa refusal there are limitations to what you can apply for and this might affect a offshore application?

If we can, then are there other difficulties or watch its we should know about?

Thanks alot!

What are the chances to get offshore?

Its a bit of a silly question.   But if you both  meet all the criteria, and you have provided all the required documentation, ID, and you pass the health, character and relationship tests, and paid your fee, then you are most likely to succeed.

But there is a significant waiting period these days.

Do your research, here and at the IMMI website.
