Got engaged before lodging 820, will I fail again?

Hi there,

Me and my partner got engaged before valentines' day. We failed subclass 309 last year and going to lodge subclass 820 before my ETA expire the end of April.

Now we are from "partner" become "fiancÚ". Will it be any problem of lodging subclass 820? (as that's partner visa) I am afraid they fail us again this time reason is I lodge the wrong type of visa (prospective marriage visa)?

Thanks in advance.

Being "engaged" is quaint and sounds nice but legally it is irrelevant

Being engaged will be a new piece of "evidence" towards your relationship, so it can help a partner visa application. However since you aren't married you will still need to meet the requirements to provide sufficient evidence of having lived together as a de facto couple for 12 months prior to your application.

Have you been living together for at least 12 months before lodging your application? Being engaged doesn't waive the 12 month requirement for the partner de facto visa, unless you get married or apply for PMV again offshore. Remember partner visa requires more comprehensive evidences compared to PMV.
