Australian Partner Visa Cover Letter Sample
I keep getting questions about what our cover letter looked like for our visa application. A cover letter isn’t necessarily a requirement for most Australian visas, but it’s nice to include as it gives your case officer an idea of who you are and adds a personal touch amidst all of the forms and statements. For those of you curious, here is the cover letter we included with our partner visa application:
To the Immigration Application Officer:
Attached is my application for the Onshore Partner Visa (subclass 820). The application is complete except for the medical and police checks. I have sent in an application for a criminal records check through the FBI and will send it in as soon as I receive it. I will complete the medical as soon as advised.
I have assembled the application in accordance with the document checklist, which I hope makes it quick and easy to go through. While we have attached evidence of our genuine and continuing relationship, please let us know if more evidence is needed or if you would like to conduct an interview—we would be more than willing to comply.
My husband and I met online in 2005 and met in person in 2008. In June 2012, after graduating from university, I arrived in Australia on a work and holiday visa. We have been living together since and married in November 2012. We have spent a lot of time and money flying back and forth over the Pacific to see each other and hope to be granted the ability to live and work alongside each other without being separated.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can provide. I hope to hear from you soon.
Yours Sincerely, [Names] [Contact Detail — e-mail and mobile number]
This letter was written based on a similar letter I’d found somewhere–I can’t remember where or I’d link to it! This is not the only way to write a cover letter, by any means. You might find something that works better for you, but like I said, I’ve been getting questions about ours and this worked for us.
Basically, you want to start with what it is you are applying for and let the case officer know if anything is missing from your application–in my case, the police clearances and medical check. Let them know how far along you are in obtaining these items, or if you intend to wait until you are asked for them. I believe the police clearances and medicals are the only items that you can get away with leaving out of your initial application, but I could be wrong.
Your second paragraph should mention what you have already included and how you assembled the application. In our case, “in accordance with the document checklist.” Additionally, I offered the ability to hand over more evidence if needed. If they need more evidence they will typically ask for it rather than dismiss your application outright, but I thought the offer was good to include.
Lastly, I told the case officer a little bit about ourselves and why we wanted the visa. For partner visas, this answer is pretty obvious–“we want to be together.” However, the little bit about you is a nice personal touch. You’ll tell more of your story in your relationship statements later on. I think it’s good to give the case officer a little taste of what they’ll be seeing and dealing with.

Where did you get the FBI application to send off?
Hi Becky! You can find it on the FBI website: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/identity-history-summary-checks/submitting-an-identity-history-summary-request-to-the-fbi
You’ll see a link for the application form at the top of the page. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
Hi! Did you apply online ?
Hi! No, I didn’t. Applying online wasn’t an option when I submitted my application, unfortunately. I hear it’s pretty easy though!
thanks for replying .. my wife and i is planning to apply online. but there’s a 5 questions hard for us to answer. do you answer all of this in your application?
Give details of the social aspects of the relationship?
Give details of the nature of the household?
Give details of the nature of the commitment the applicant and the sponsor have to each other?
Give details of the development of the relationship between the applicant and the sponsor?
These are all the most important questions on the application. =D You’ll need evidence to back your answers up as well. Have a look at another of my posts, “Things We Included in Our Australian Partner Visa.” I have everything that we listed as evidence for each of these topics there:
wow! thank you that helps us.. have got interviewed about the application? and did you do a story of your relationship?
I never got interviewed, but we did have to do the relationship story. Just start from the beginning–how you met, when your relationship started becoming serious, and how it developed. Hope that helps!
thanks a lot! : . .did the both of you write a relationship story ? or just 1relationship story ?hmmm..
We both had to write one. However, I applied two years ago so the requirements might have changed!
ok miss inkheart ! 🙂 thanks for your help!! 🙂 take care !
Hi, your information about applying for the 820 visa is very helpful. I would like to ask, after you lodge your application without health check and police check, did you receive the bridging visa right after the lodging? because I am facing the same problem that it will take a pretty long time for me to get the police check from the countries that I’ve stayed in the part 10 years. Just wonder if I will be granted a bridging visa even my application is without police check. thanks!
Hi Rakugakids! Yes, you will be granted a bridging visa shortly after lodging even if you haven’t handed in your police check. The people at immigration understand that police checks can take a long time to process, so they still give you all the perks even if you haven’t handed everything in yet. 🙂 Good luck with your application!
thanks for your reply, it does ease my mind! however, i will be transferring from tourist visa to the spouse visa, will that be more difficult to obtain the spouse visa? coz you’ve mentioned that you were having the working/holiday visa, it does make more sense to the case officer… i know it’s kinda risky way to transfer from tourist to spouse visa, but the immigration booklet didn’t say a definite “no” to these kinds of cases..
Nope, it shouldn’t make a difference. 🙂 People apply for spouse visas on tourist visas all the time. It’s only risky in that if immigration suspects you are coming over for the purpose of applying for another visa, they can put a “No Further Stay” condition on your tourist visa, which would make it impossible for you to apply. I haven’t seen a case where that happened, though, so I don’t think it’s very common–nothing to worry about!
It definitely shouldn’t affect getting your bridging visa, though. Once you apply, you’re treated the same as everyone else regardless of which visa you were on previously. 🙂 Hope that helps!
Hi First of all, what an amazing blog for us visas applicant!!!
My name is pauline I am from France. I am about to apply for a partner visa with my Australian boyfriend I have a question about your bridging visa 🙂 How long did it take to receive your bridging visa after giving the visa application in person? Also, could you travel overseas with your bridging visa? I would like to visit my family in France for a couples of weeks while the visa is processing
Thanks in advance for your help
Hi Pauline, I’m glad you’ve found my blog helpful! 🙂 After applying for the partner visa, I believe the letter for the bridging visa was sent about a week or so later. However, it was backdated to the day I applied–so if my visa had expired the day after I applied for the partner visa, I still would have been on a substantive visa even though I didn’t have the bridging visa letter. You can always mention when your visa expires and they can expedite the confirmation of a bridging visa if you’re worried about it!
You can’t travel on the bridging visa that they give you — Bridging Visa A. However, you can apply for Bridging Visa B, which does come with travel rights. I never applied for a BVB so I don’t know much about it, but it sounds like it’s fairly straightforward. 🙂
Let me know if you have any other questions!

10 Secrets of Writing Convincing Statement Letters for Partner Visa Application 2023
Updated June 20, 2023
Statement Letters for Partner Visa. Here is The Ultimate Guideline for You.
A Statement letter is one of the required documents for applying to all Partner Visa ( subclass 300 , subclass 801 , subclass 820 , subclass 309 , and subclass 100 ). But, do you know that a lot of Australian Partner Visa refusal happens because of terribly written statement letters for the Partner Visa application?
Do you know that Australian Partner Visa is one of the most expensive visas in Australia? It will cost you at least AUD8,085, and this price might increase each year.
Are you sure to risk all this money by handling the visa application on your own? Think about it again! If it got refused, you would need to appeal the decision, and it won’t cost you a cheap price! It will cost you $3,153 AUD and moreover, it might take a year to process. Isn’t it money and time-consuming?
That is why Australian Partner Visa applications are very complex and require attention to detail as well as consistency.
As a Partner Visa applicant, you, together with your partner, must provide several things that prove your relationship is genuine to support your statement letter.
Why is that important? Well, a convincing and written-in-details statement letter can boost your chance of getting a Partner Visa.
Considering how essential the statement letters are, here are ten tips for writing convincing statement letters for a Partner Visa application:
10 Secrets Of Convincing Statement Letter For Partner Visa Application
1. Include all the relevant dates of your relationship
Partner visa statement letter should be detailed, so remember to put all relevant dates of your relationship. For example, if you are applying for a partner visa, the exact date you met, the exact date you started dating, and the exact date you were engaged or married to your partner must be included. You can see the example below as your reference:
I first met Kevin on 18 March 2019 at our mutual friends’ (Sebastian) wedding ceremony. Kevin approached me first and asked me how I got to know Sebastian. We had a great conversation at the time and decided to have our first lunch together on 21 March 2019 at McDonald Jimbaran, Bali.
All dates of your relationship are essential and need to be seen by the case officer in assessing your application.
If you don’t include this information, it may lead the authority to ask you more questions and to provide further documentation.
And the worst case, it may also lead to a visa refusal.
If you wish to prepare a decision-ready partner visa application, please book a consultation here or call us on 1300 827 159 .
2. Ensure that all information you include in your letter is in great detail.
Elaborate in great detail on any significant moments that you and your partner have shared. The more detail you provide, the better for your application. For example:
After lunch, Kevin and I went to Gelato Ice Cream Shop and got a mint chocolate gelato for us. It was a sunny beautiful day and we talked a lot about our life. I found Kevin is a hard-working person when he said he had to work at 3 different places to fulfil all his needs when he was young. We took some pictures as well with an our-accidentally-couple-outfit, blue shirt and white pants.

3. Ensure that your statement is consistent.
Make sure that your statement letters for the Partner Visa application are consistent and information contained in your letters, including dates, is exactly the same as what you have put in your application forms.
Assuring your statement letter consistency will help to avoid any discrepancies in your application.
4. Be sure to make it free from spelling and grammar mistakes.
It is important to make your statement letter free from any grammar or spelling mistakes as it will help the case officer to clearly understand your relationship circumstances. Just imagine how it would look if you can’t spell your partner’s name in the right way, it will obviously look suspicious and be confusing for the case officer, right? So, ensure that you have spelled and explained everything correctly in your statement letter.
Also, ensure that you explain in your statements if you call your partner by a different name. For example, “I refer to Chun Lee as Sally”, will help the case officer to understand that you’re talking about your partner and not someone else. For example:
Let me explain the relationship development of me and Lee Young Min, who I refer as Kevin (his English name). I first met Kevin on 18 March 2019 at our mutual friends’ (Sebastian) wedding ceremony.
5. Make sure that you elaborate on feelings and emotions.
The more you express your love for your partner, the better. Immigration wants to see that your relationship with your partner is serious and genuine. The example below can be your reference:
Since our first meeting, I believed Kevin is the one that I have been searching for. I feel like I have found the missing piece that completes my life. Despite all the storms that we have been facing, we would never let our ship sink.
Don’t be afraid to sound romantic or over the top. Remember, your statement is not going to be published for the world to see. So, don’t be embarrassed to include this information.

6. Partner visa statement letters of yours and your partner need to match and be consistent.
The department of immigration will not look kindly on your relationship if you both have a different date you met, or different marriage or engagement date. The matching data and consistency between you and your partner are critical to show your relationship is real.
If you wish to get full assistance and successfully obtain your partner visa, please book a consultation here or call us on 1300 827 159 .
7. Ensure that any dates you mention in your partner visa statements letter match your formal documentation.
Dates such as divorces, tenancy agreements, engagement dates, marriage dates, and other important milestones like birthdays, are extremely important dates.
Any inconsistency between your statements, documents, and application, will lead the department to question the validity of your application.
8. Partner visa statement letter must include all the information required.
The required aspects of a partner visa are the information the department wants to know. These include:
Kevin has been supporting me financially since the first day of our relationship began. He sends me funds regularly to fulfil my needs such as clothing, food, and others. Kevin told me to save my income for our future needs, for example for our dream wedding or for our children’s necessities.
Kevin and I love to travel so much, so we spent most of our time travelling around Asia and Australia. We visited Tokyo Disneyland on our last trip because I have told Kevin many times how much I love Elsa from Frozen.
I am 100% committed to our relationship and I want to spend the rest of my life with Kevin. I always treat Kevin like a King and Kevin always treats me like the Queen of him. I never regret the decision to start this beautiful journey with Kevin and I am looking forward to a more beautiful journey with a happy ending.
Our relationship has been developing well since the first day. We get closer as time passes by and now I am sure Kevin is the right person who comes at the right time. I cannot wait to celebrate our wedding at the end of this year as it will be our happiest day.

9. Make sure you mention any time spent apart, how you communicated, and any trips or holidays you have taken together in your partner visa statement letter.
Make sure that you explain about your long-distance relationship with your partner as well, if you had it. You need to explain how you communicated or travelled to visit each other during the long-distance relationship period. Besides, the Australian immigration department will want to know all about your travel history, so ensure that you provide explanations for it.
10. Always get a proofread of your partner’s visa statement letter.
Get your partner or friends to read the statement for you. Sometimes you may miss errors that other people can see.
Do not underestimate the double-checking process on your statement letter and other related documents. It is aimed to avoid any inconsistent information or simple wrong spelling words. This process will guide you to a great and successful statement letter. It would be unfortunate if a little mistake ended up being so costly .

Other Important Things That Need Your Attention
It is a good start for you to follow all the secrets mentioned above. But, do not forget that you must pay attention to other things such as the efficiency, details, etc. of your statement letter.
You can pretend to be a third person that does not know about your relationship in checking the efficiency of your statement letter. You can see whether your statements are clear and understandable or not. If you find your statement hard to understand, it is better to revise your statement letter and create a simpler and more understandable explanation.
And when you explain your relationship circumstances, make sure you refer to the supporting documents because it will make your statement letter more convincing.

Are cover letters for partner visa applications necessary? [FREE TEMPLATE]
Are cover letters for partner visa applications necessary?
Cover letters are not just for job applications, they can also be handy for your partner visa applications. Why you ask? Is it necessary you ask? Well they're not necessary per se but they're a nice to have and I find that it helps to make the life of the case officer easier. Imagine if you're handing in 50 or so documents (either paper or online) and there's a few missing that will be uploaded or sent off a bit later. You can’t expect the case officer to look at your list of documents and know exactly what’s missing and whether you will be uploading it. Once again the goal is to help out the case officer as much as possible and not to make their jobs harder than it should be.
If you’re missing documents or some of your documents are a little unclear then you want to explain this to the case officer.
Online applications and cover letters
If you're submitting online there's no need for cover letters that detail what is included in the application as the system ticks them off when you upload the relevant document. However, I find it helps with organising the submission and acts as a final review checklist for yourself.
Cover letters are also good to highlight or direct the case officer to which evidence is for which category. With 50 or so documents, don't make it hard for the case officer to piece together your evidence and then match it to the requirements. Lead them there. You want the case officer to read your cover letter and go 'OK, passport copy is evidence of identity. Check. Birth certificate is evidence of identity. Check'. You don't want them to go 'Ok, evidence of identity, where in all of these documents do I find it? Are they labelled properly?'
You can only upload 60 documents in the online system and each can only be 5MB in file size. Therefore you have to be very selective when you are choosing your evidence. So when I say ‘unclear documents’ I don’t want you to waste your valuable document limit on evidence that is ambiguous or unclear and unhelpful. However what I do mean is, if you have several pieces of evidence that are linked together to form a full picture, then its requires a bit of explanation.
For example, you both met on a trip to London and you were attending the same concert. Here’s what you’ll upload: your train tickets to London (assuming neither of you live in London), ticket stubs or concert payment receipts, concert programme and other merchandising.
If you choose this as evidence, then you must upload these separately but individually they mean nothing except a train ticket, a used concert ticket and some pretty brochures.
This is where the cover letter comes in. You can tie together your evidence by explaining a little about what it is and what you are proving with it.
Sample cover letter
Here's an example structure of what you could write. I tend to use more formal language because I'm an immigration lawyer after all but you can chop and change the words to suit your style. Personalise it a bit if you wish.
I've included a sample one here and is available for you to download FREE.
Dear Sir/Madam, [I prefer a more formal salutation but go with whichever that you're comfortable with]
Please find attached my application for the Partner Visa (subclass 820). The application is complete except for the following: [list documents that are missing. Delete if not necessary]
- [Document type and name]
These documents are outstanding because: [use all that apply to provide a complete explanation]
- [Document name] will be obtained on your request/instructions
- I have sent off for [Document name] and it will be available in [date or time period]
- [Insert other reason]
The outstanding documents will be processed and uploaded/attached [Choose one] as soon as possible.
I have completed the application in accordance to the requirements of the visa and below is a brief explanatory note of the documents submitted with the application.
List filenames or document title – best to use filenames as will be uploaded to the system
I hope you have found this explanation sufficient and please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further clarification. I also invite you to interview myself or my partner if need be and we are contactable on [phone number and/or email address or postal address].
Name of applicant
Phone and/or email
Please refer to my other post on incomplete applications to understand which documents you are “allowed” to leave out at time of submission and which ones that are critical and shouldn't be left out.
Also if you're submitting a substantially incomplete application I wouldn't advise to attach a visa application cover letter since it'd be e a whole laundry list of things you've yet to do. Instead I'd submit the cover letter when you've obtained around 90% of all your documentary evidence and have uploaded it/sent it off.

Australia visa cover letter
A cover letter for an Australian visa is a document that you can attach to your visa application to explain your purpose of visit, your travel itinerary, and your financial situation. It is not a mandatory requirement, but it can help you present your case in a clear and convincing way. A cover letter can also address any issues or gaps in your application, such as missing documents, alternative proofs, or special circumstances. A cover letter can also show your respect and appreciation to the visa officer who will process your application.
You do not need a cover letter for an eVisitor visa. An eVisitor visa is an electronic visa that allows citizens of certain countries to visit Australia for tourism or business purposes for up to 3 months. It is a multiple entry visa, which means that you can enter and leave Australia as many times as you want during the validity period of the visa.
The eVisitor visa application process is simple and can be completed online through Visas for Future . You do not need to provide a cover letter as part of your application.
However, if you would like to provide a cover letter, you can do so. In your cover letter, you can explain your purpose of visit to Australia and why you are a good candidate for the visa. You can also highlight your ties to your home country and your intention to return.
The Australian Department of Home Affairs will not require a cover letter to process your eVisitor visa application. However, providing one can help to strengthen your application and increase your chances of approval.
Australia Visa Policy
The visa policy of Australia is the official system that Australia uses to control and manage the entry and stay of foreign nationals in its territory. The visa policy of Australia is based on the laws and regulations that the Australian government has enacted to define who can visit, live, and work in Australia, and under what conditions and requirements.
Australia has a universal visa regime, which is a type of visa system that applies to all non-citizens who want to enter and remain in Australia. A universal visa regime means that there is no exception or exemption for any foreign national who wishes to travel to or stay in Australia. Every non-citizen must have a valid visa to enter and remain in Australia, regardless of their nationality, purpose, or duration of their visit.

What is International Travel?
International travel is the movement of people between different countries. It can be for a variety of purposes, such as tourism, business, education, or immigration.
International travel has become increasingly common in recent years, due to a number of factors, including:
- The declining cost of air travel
- The rise of globalization
- The increasing number of people who can afford to travel
International travel can offer a number of benefits, including:
- The opportunity to experience new cultures and ways of life
- The chance to learn about different languages and customs
- The opportunity to make new friends and connections
- The chance to broaden one’s horizons and perspective
However, international travel can also pose a number of risks, such as:
- The risk of getting lost or injured
- The risk of being scammed or robbed
- The risk of contracting a disease
- The risk of being exposed to political or social unrest
It is important to be aware of the risks involved in international travel and to take steps to mitigate them.
What is a Travel Document?
A travel document is a form of identification that governments give to citizens or visitors so they can cross international borders. The U.S. government issues many different types of travel documents. The type of travel document you need depends on your immigration status and the purpose of your trip.
Some of the common travel documents are:
- Passport: This is the most widely recognized and accepted travel document. It is a booklet that contains your personal information, photo, and signature. It also has pages for visas and stamps from other countries. A passport proves your identity and citizenship, and allows you to travel to and from most countries in the world.
- Visa: This is a permit that allows you to enter or stay in a certain country for a specific period of time and purpose. A visa is usually issued by the country you want to visit, and it is attached to your passport. Not all countries require visas for all travelers, and the visa requirements may vary depending on your nationality, destination, and duration of stay.
- Refugee travel document: This is a document that allows refugees or asylees to travel outside the U.S. and return without losing their status. A refugee travel document is similar to a passport, but it has a different color and design. It is issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to people who have been granted refugee or asylum status in the U.S.
- Reentry permit: This is a document that allows permanent residents or conditional residents to travel outside the U.S. and return without losing their status. A reentry permit is similar to a passport, but it has a different color and design. It is issued by the USCIS to people who have a green card or a conditional green card in the U.S.
- Advance parole document: This is a document that allows certain immigrants who have pending applications for immigration benefits or adjustment of status to travel outside the U.S. and return without abandoning their applications. An advance parole document is usually a paper form with your photo and information. It is issued by the USCIS to people who have applied for certain visas, green cards, or citizenship in the U.S.
What is a Passport?
A passport is an official document that is issued by a government to its citizens. It contains information about the person’s identity and nationality, such as their name, date of birth, photo, and signature. A passport allows the person to travel to and from other countries, and to access consular services if they need help abroad. A passport also shows the person’s visa status, which is the permission to enter or stay in a certain country for a specific period of time.
Importance of a Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is a type of insurance that provides financial protection for travelers. It can cover a variety of expenses, including medical expenses, trip cancellation or interruption, lost luggage, and more.
Travel insurance is important because it can help to protect you financially in the event of an unexpected event during your trip. For example, if you get sick or injured while traveling, travel insurance can help to cover the cost of medical care. If your flight is canceled or delayed, travel insurance can help to reimburse you for your expenses. And if your luggage is lost or stolen, travel insurance can help to replace your belongings.
The cost of travel insurance varies depending on the type of coverage you choose and the length of your trip. However, it is generally a relatively affordable way to protect yourself financially while traveling.
Here are some of the reasons why travel insurance is important:
- Medical expenses: Travel insurance can help to cover the cost of medical care if you get sick or injured while traveling. This can be a significant expense, especially if you are traveling to a country with expensive healthcare.
- Trip cancellation or interruption: Travel insurance can help to reimburse you for non-refundable travel expenses if your trip is canceled or interrupted due to a covered reason, such as a medical emergency, natural disaster, or terrorist attack.
- Lost luggage : Travel insurance can help to replace your luggage if it is lost or stolen while traveling. This can be a major inconvenience, and travel insurance can help to make the process of replacing your luggage easier.
- Emergency medical evacuation: Travel insurance can help to cover the cost of emergency medical evacuation if you need to be airlifted to a hospital while traveling. This can be a very expensive expense, and travel insurance can help to make it more affordable.
- Trip delay: Travel insurance can help to reimburse you for additional expenses if your trip is delayed due to a covered reason, such as a flight cancellation or a natural disaster. This can include things like meals, hotel stays, and transportation costs.
If you are planning to travel internationally, it is important to purchase travel insurance. This will help to protect you financially in the event of an unexpected event during your trip.
The Migration Act 1958 is the main law that regulates immigration in Australia. It is a Commonwealth law, which means that it applies to all states and territories of Australia. The Migration Act sets out the criteria for who can enter and stay in Australia, and the different types of visas that are available. It also gives the government the power to detain and deport people who are not allowed to be in Australia.
In addition to the Migration Act, there are a number of other laws that relate to immigration in Australia. These include the:
- Australian Citizenship Act 2007 , which sets out the requirements for becoming an Australian citizen.
- Judiciary Act 1903 , which gives the Federal Court jurisdiction over certain immigration matters.
- Human Rights Act 1998 , which sets out the human rights that must be protected by the government, including the right to freedom of movement.

How to Write a Convincing Cover Letter for a NZ Partnership Visa Application
May 18, 2023
Applying for a partnership-based visa can be a lengthy and complicated process. However, one of the most important parts of your application is the cover letter.
The cover letter helps you explain your relationship, demonstrate how you meet the criteria, and persuade Immigration New Zealand (INZ) to grant you a visa.
Many applicants think that writing a brief letter stating their connection and love for their partner is enough, but that’s usually not the case. In reality, the cover letter allows you to showcase your relationship and convince the INZ case officer that your relationship is genuine and committed. Hence writing a compelling cover letter is crucial.
In this blog post, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to write a convincing cover letter for a partnership-based visa application. By following our tips and tricks, you will be able to structure your letter, address potential issues, and include all the necessary information to make your application a success.
- Understand the eligibility criteria:
Before you begin writing your cover letter, it is essential to understand the eligibility requirements for your partnership visa application. You should read the INZ website to determine the main requirements for your visa category. Be sure to review the requirements carefully so that you can tailor your letter to meet the specific criteria.
For example, if you are applying for a partnership-based resident visa, you need to demonstrate that you have lived together for at least 12 months before applying for the visa.
- Structure your letter:
In the cover letter, you need to describe your relationship with your partner and how it has developed over time.
Your cover letter should consist of four main parts: an introduction, your relationship history, how you meet the eligibility criteria, and a conclusion.
Start with an attention-grabbing introduction that sets out the purpose of your letter and your reasons for applying for the visa. Next, provide a detailed account of your relationship, how you met, and your plans for the future. The third part of your letter should answer how you meet the criteria for your visa category. You should be explicit in demonstrating how your relationship meets each criterion. Finally, conclude your letter by summarizing why you believe that you and your partner meet the requirements for the visa category.
- Include supporting evidence:
Your cover letter should include any supporting evidence that demonstrates your relationship meets the criteria for the visa category.
It’s not enough to say that you are in a committed relationship ; you must demonstrate it with evidence. For example, you can provide photographs, proof of joint bank accounts, or joint utility bills that show that you have been living together. You should also explain each piece of evidence and how it helps to support your claim. Be sure to provide a clear and concise explanation so the reader understands each document’s relevance.
Failing to provide evidence to support your claims can harm your application and lead to a visa refusal.
- Address potential issues:
If you anticipate there may be any potential issues with your application; you should address them in your cover letter. This may include any previous visa refusals or convictions. You should explain the circumstances surrounding the issue and how you have taken steps to rectify the situation. It is important to address these issues proactively, as it demonstrates your transparency and willingness to comply with the relevant immigration instructions of INZ.
- Proofread and edit your letter:
Your cover letter should be well-written, clear, and concise. Be sure to proofread and edit your letter carefully before submitting your application. Look for any grammatical errors or spelling mistakes, and ensure that your letter flows logically from one point to the next.
Writing a convincing cover letter for your partnership visa application is crucial in your visa journey. By following our step-by-step guide, you can structure your letter, address any potential issues, and provide the necessary evidence to demonstrate that you and your partner meet the requirements for the visa category. Remember to tailor your letter to meet the specific criteria and to proofread and edit your letter before submitting your application. With determination, effort, and the right amount of preparation, you can increase your chances of success and achieve your dreams of living in New Zealand with your partner.
A common mistake individuals make is not seeking professional advice when writing cover letters. It’s best to seek advice from a Licensed Immigration Adviser (LIA), like us, who can guide you throughout the application process. The LIA can assist you in drafting a compelling cover letter that addresses all the requirements of the partnership-based visa category and provides evidence to support your claims. Seeking professional advice can improve your chances of a positive outcome.
