oh crimea yes it is paradise there. I know of it but i haven't been there. My fiance is from Khmelnitsky - Western Ukraine. I've been to kiev and all through the west part of ukraine. I went to the Ukraine last year for 3 months to live with my then gf and her family, but she hasn't been to australia yet. Thats good about the passport maybe my fiance should do the same. It is a pity there isnt an embassy in the ukraine though. I'll definitely have a look at expedia cheers. When i went to ukraine i went though flight centre - they are rip offs. I am 24 years old and my fiance is 27 years old. We are keen to be together to buy a house here in adelaide and to start a family. Is your wive's english good ? How old are both of you ?

Hi there

I'm currently trying to apply for a Prospective Marriage Visa (PMV 300) to bring my fiance out to Australia.

I'm wondering how your application ended up and how long the application ended up taking?

She tells me their MINIMUM processing time now is 12 MONTHS!?

I'm hopeful that once we apply with a strong application and having a long-term legitimate relationship that we can have the visa approved within about 7mths.

I'd be interested to hear from you!

PMV processing from Moscow

Hi Traveller,
I am in the process of applying for Prospective Marriage Visa (PMV) visa subclass 300 for my fiancée who is from Minsk, Belarus. This means we will be submitting the application to Australian Embassy in Moscow. She already has 6 month, multiple entry tourist visa (with condtion 8503 and 1 month stay on each entry).
I do not see a lot of applicants on this forum who have or has submitted their applications to Moscow. Since every embassy has their own ways of dealing with applications, Embassy in Manilla may do things a lot different from in Moscow. Also most employees from Moscow are russians, this inherently makes the whole business of processing applications different.
Since I do not see a lot of people applying to Moscow on this forum and we do not know/aware of inner workings of Embassy in Moscow. Our best bet would be to collect enough samples/history from others and connect the dots to get a rough idea of how and when the processing takes place.
I see your application was done way back in 2011. I am guessing you can shed some light into the process here. Any suggestion/trick/tip that you have come across and might help others in this situation?

Few things that we have discovered so far is:

1. All documents not in English must be translated into English (including letters of support/bank documents).
2. Embassy in Moscow cannot be contacted after 12:30 pm local time for any queries or questions.
3. Some are polite and some are not (depends on day/weather/luck).
4. Partner visas with children usually take longer than partner visas without children involved (both in time and documentation needed).
5. Do not do medical examinations unless advised by the Embassy with HAP ID.
6. Personal submission of applications in Moscow do not entail on the spot interviews (they used to do that in the past).
7. Interviews for partner visas have been over the telephone more often than physical face to face.
8. Previous travel to Australia does help.

Please feel free to add to the list (for Moscow)

Thanks

Just a word of caution - make sure you verify any information you get, as processing procedures and processing times can change so rapidly that what was true in 2011 may be completely different from what is true now. Just a few short years ago (maybe even less) partner visa processing times were around two weeks... and look what we have now. Just wanted to put that out there. Back to your regularly-scheduled thread.

Sure thing Collegegirl.
Maybe I should have started a new thread. This topic seems like buried under the topic which is a bit misleading.
Any possibility Collegegirl?
