Serial Sponsors! Do they even exist? Did they ever? This is the issue of the 5 year rule that prevents an Australian sponsor from sponsoring another visa applicant (from Philippines or anywhere) for a partner visa application if he has sponsored someone within the last five years, even if that relationship has broken down. And it restricts partner visa sponsorship to 2 visa sponsorships in a lifetime. What can you do if you find yourself in this situation?

There is the opportunity to apply for a waiver of the effects of Reg 1.20J if exceptional circumstances that are compelling and compassionate affecting the Australian Citizen sponsor can be established, and Down Under Visa will help you if we can. But we do warn you that it's no so easy to have this Regulation waived.
