Hi, what a great site, I am engaged to marry my Romanian Fiance in September 2013. We made contact on a Christian website in January 2012 and have been in contact on email and phone every day, ever since. I visited her in Oct 2012 and she visited me in Feb 2013. We will marry in Romania and then go to Belgrade in Serbia to submit the Spouse Visa as Romania does not have an Australian Embassy.
I hope to hear from anyone who has been in a similar situation involving Romania. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Stoat...

You may be better off applying for a PMV (prospective marriage visa) and getting married in Australia after it is granted.

As part of a Partner Visa, you are required to submit proof like shared finances, living together, a shared social life, and some "nature of committment" proof. This can be very difficult for people in your situation to come up with.

If you apply for the PMV instead, you must prove that you have met in person (which you have) and prove that you are genuinely going to get married (which you are), and that you are going to live as a married couple once you are married. The burden of proof is much easier with the PMV.

I suggest that you read the Partner Migration Booklet http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/booklets/1127.pdf
very carefully to make sure you understand what is required of you for each visa type before you make a decision on which visa to apply for.

Thank you

Thank you for your reply, the reason I am marrying in Romania is mainly out of respect for her family, they are very special to me..
Their daughter/sister is moving to Australia, I want them to enjoy our special day.
Have you or anyone here, heard about a "Marriage Visa" , Australian citizens do not require a visa to visit Romania if visiting under three months but I have heard that since I am going back to Romania to Marry this "Marriage Visa" is required..
Thanks again

I am sorry I cannot help you, I would suggest you contact the Department of Immigration & Citizenship in Australia.

I accidentally stumbled across this post today and thought of you
http://www.australiaforum.com/visas...situation-visa-options-russian-citizen-2.html

The migration agent says that with a PMV, it doesn't matter where you get married, as long as Australia recognizes it. So you can go PMV and still have your family wedding in Romania!

Confusion about Embassy.

I am having some difficulty getting a straight answer about which Australian Embassy I should use. As I said before I will be getting married in Romania.
Australia does not have an Embassy in Romania, I was informed to contact the Australian Embassy in Belgrade, Serbia which I have been doing. Today I was told by the Romanian Embassy in Sydney via telephone that I have to contact the Australian Embassy in Mudapest in Hungary. This is very confusing as time is getting closer to my wedding in September 2013.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Stoat
