Hey guys,

I am from India and my boyfriend (an Indian as well) is in Australia since a year and a half. We are in a relationship since 3 years and I have visited him once in Australia too. Since, we plan to lodge an application latest by October we want to gather the documents and know more about the process.

I have queries and would be great if you guys can help us out.

a. I have found out that PMV is also referred as fiance visa. Is that correct? Do we have to be engaged to apply? Or pictures/call logs/ messages/ travel tickets etc. is just enough to show as an evidence :confused: .

b. If we plan to get married in India after receiving the PMV visa, do we have to submit NOIM from India only? If we plan to get a NOIM in Australia, does that mean in the future we have to get married in Australia only. We plan to not apply for NOIM in India because as per the law, the marriage has to be solemnised within 3 calendar months of the application :( .

Hey Ramah,

Thanks for your response!

He has a PR. Though we plan to get engaged by November/December (the only time he will get to be in India). We haven't lodged our applications as of yet, we plan to latest by October.

Also applying 'Intent to Marry' for a long duration isn't possible in my country as we have to get married within the 3 months of its application. What if we apply NOIM from Australia itself, in the future can we cancel that and get married in India instead?

While it maybe referred to by many things - to avoid confusion just call it a PMV.

Just get an NOIM in Australia - no big deal most are never the right date and you can change and do any marriage any place with anyone as long as it is a recognized legal marriage by DIBP.

You need to enter Australia on the PMV once granted - then marry (any place) within 9 months of the grant date, not your arrival date in Australia.

The process is long, expensive and lots of evidences (or future/s planned for all 4 relationship categories) need to be supplied.
Thank you so much! Do we have to provide proofs of engagement in terms of engagement ceremony, ring pictures etc.? Won't normal get together details, pictures, call logs etc. be enough to show as an evidence?

Each couple are different.

We had a proposal in text over Skype - we supplied that copy.

We did not have any rings - so no photos or receipts

We did not have an Engagement Ceremony.

You need future stuff to like where will you both live short and long term (get it in emails where possible), Will there be kids? when?, Who will bring in the income and how will it be spent, Who will cook, who will clean, what social events are/will and have you attended together.
I got it! I do have an idea now. Thank you so much :)
