Default Adding a partner after the invite

Hello guys, I hope you all are having a good day.

I have submitted my EOI with 75 points on 29th of March. My occupation is mechanical engineering so I should get my invite by the first couple rounds in the new financial year if there're no more surprises.

My question is that when I submit my EOI, I did not add any partner because it was only me. But this might change now. I might be on a track to get back with my ex who lives overseas. So I am wondering if I can add her to my application after I receive my invite or should I update my EOI? And If I update my EOI, will my date of EOI change or stay as same since I do not change any information which effects my points?

Btw; I don't have any intention to get extra points from her. I just want to add her on my invite so if we work out and decide to live in here in Australia, I won't have any hassle in the future.

Thank you for your time!

You can add her even after invite
No issues

But you may have a hard time proving itís a genuine relationship if you are living apart

Cheers

Hi NB, thanks for the response.

Is there anything I can do to make it look like a genuine relationship while we are living apart? I plan to visit her in couple months on her birthday for few days. And also plan to organise a trip that she visits me in here later on. Those sort of things can be provided as proof of relationship, right? Is there any other important point you'd recommend?

@prettyisotonic has recently got a grant on de facto relationship basis

Maybe he can help you better

Cheers

You cannot simply make it look like a genuine relationship, it needs to actually be a genuine relationship. If you do get back together, your receipts from your trip can be part of the evidence but you also need to prove you have joint finances, joint households (or explanation why you are temporarily living apart and how you still share responsibilities for your two households), joint social lives, etc.

You know you also have to have been in a defacto relationship for 12 months? A relationship =/= defacto relationship. Just visiting her for her birthday for a few days is not enough evidence. You need to have had shared bank accounts, assets etc...

You are better off spending time gathering evidence and applying for a partner/marriage visa considering you guys are just getting back together.

As others have pointed out, if you are not married, you can get your partner added to your skilled visa assuming you have been in a de facto relationship for at least 12 months (unless the relationship is registered in Australia, except in WA - then the 12 month de facto requirement is considered met).

There is no living together requirement for 12 months - but you have to have been living apart only on a temporary basis - and living together is a huge component of being in a genuine and continuing de facto relationship.

I personally like this MARA agents compilation of required evidence across the four domains - financial / social / nature of relationship / household - (it is the same evidence required of a partner visa):
