Pmv vs partner visa cost

Hello
I'm currently in the process of applying for a PMV. I've looked into all the costs and it's about 7000 aud the same as partner right ? However once I'm married and need to change this visa will I have to pay something again? Basically what I'm asking is does the PMV Work out as more money ? Thanks for anyone's help

Yes, the PMV costs more than other partner visas since the latest visa fee increase. If you don't meet the requirements of onshore or offshore partner visa, then it will be cheaper to apply for PMV than to waste an additional $7000 to reapply if rejected.

Hey
Thanks for your reply .
We do meet the requirements in terms of living together etc it's just I'm so anxious about evidence etc . Do you know if it works out as a lot more ? Say if it's double or a few thousand more I won't do it but if it is only a bit I think it would be worth doing it . Thanks

If you list your evidence we can offer you our opinions if you meet the requirements of the visa.

That be great thank you :
Weve been together 2 years 10 months .
We've spent most that time going back and forth together to aus .
When we lived in aus I wasn't on any of the rental agreements but i do have letters addressed to me there.
The last year we've lived with my parents in uk so again we have letters addressed to us at same address but no joint finicial things .
Basically we can show we have lived together since dec 2012 but there's no solid finicial proof of anything I think thats because we are young we don't really have that finicial commitment . In terms of everything else I have a huge amount of photos letters . Friends and family can all write stuff . Thanks for your time I'm not very good at writing as you can tell so hope it makes sense !!

Joint financial isn't everything, we have had people on this forum being approved and they didn't have joint accounts. They did support each other financially though. So if you have individual accounts and can show transactions in each account that show you supporting each other that works too.

If you wait until after you get married that will waive the de facto requirements.

Also their was a ruling recently that said you don't need to have lived together for 12 months you just need to be de facto for 12 months.

Hmm it is something to think about .
I'm eager to get it done and I think a PMV will be better because then there is not as much evidence needed . What is your opinion on choosing this over de facto obviously there is the money and the time till we get married but there doesn't seem to be any other restrictions ? They don't seem to bad for the reassurance that it will bring over applying for de facto Thanks

The only difference is the requirements plus with de facto your eligibility date to PR is when you lodge the 309. With the PMV it is when you lodge the 820 onshore.

It may help you to have a consult with a registered migration agent to see what they advise if you are unsure.

It is something that the decision is yours and you have to be happy with it.

PMV is the easier visa and I believe if in doubt go the PMV.

There is also the option of the 309 based on marriage if you want to take a risk. The 309 you can get married anytime before the decision is made unlike the 820 where you must be married when you lodge the 820.

A couple of things for you to think about.
