Ive tried to look for this information but I couldnt find any.

Is PMV 300 already a permanent resident status or just a temporary visit?

The Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300), allows people to come to Australia for a temporary period up to 9 months, to marry their prospective spouse. https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/300-

During that 9 months, you should marry your prospective spouse and then apply for a Temporary Partner (subclass 820) visa.

If your Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) expires before marrying and applying for the temporary Partner visa (subclass 820), you must have left Australia, or become a visa over-stayer.

From a PMV 300 application date to the permanent visa grant date may be about 4 years.

Interestingly, schedule 2 for subclass 820 says that the sponsoring partner means:

for an applicant who is, or was, the holder of a Subclass 300 (Prospective Marriage) visa:

(A) the original sponsor for the applicant; or

(B) the subsequent sponsor for the applicant

So the visa applicant does not actually have to marry her original PMV sponsor, but could marry someone else instead and be sponsored by them for a sc. 820 visa.

Wouldn't want to give too many people too many ideas :)

Interesting thought though. If an applicant changed sponsor, would the original sponsor still be affected by that application (subclass 300) in the 5 year sponsorship period or 2 lifetime sponsorships, or isn't the 300 included in that?

I don't want to encourage anyone to do this, just like digging up those little technicalities that you won't find on the Department website ;)

Yes, the original sponsor would still be subject to the sponsorship limitation, as a visa has been granted.
