Hello all
Applying for a prospective marriage visa from the UK. My fiancee and I were planning to get married in the UK once my visa is granted...but do I need to enter Australia on this visa at all before we get married or can I enter Australia for the first time on it when I go to Australia to live after our wedding ?

You must enter Australia before you get married, after the visa is granted.

Step 1 - Get visa

Step 2 - Enter Australia

Step 3 - Get married before visa expires (any country)

Step 4 - Apply for 820 before PMV expires.

I think the official page could do with a slight rewording.

It says:
If you marry before we make a decision on your visa application, you will no longer be eligible for this visa.

It might be good to add that the decision is not in effect until the moment that you enter Australia. ie: The PMV is only valid from the moment you enter Australia. Therefore you cannot marry before you arrive.
