If i may suggest you, just put the TR application asap, so it'll be process asap too. then you can go with your partner to Oz once you're sure all evidence is complete. I also wonder if you can do the med.check in australia, it'd be so much better, but im not sure.
it'll be a challenging situation while waiting for more than a year for your visa comes through, I only waited for 4.5 months but it felt like years... semangat!!!
Good advice, though I put the TR application in on the 18th of Jan and I'm living my partner in Australia already I'm an Aussie citizen and he came here in Oct 2012 on the PMV, though after we married and submitted the TR application, he was put on a bridging visa A. So it's not so bad waiting, we're together and he can work. We'll have to apply for him to leave the country for our holiday to Indo in August, but we can only apply 4 weeks before.. eek, we've already bought the tickets but I can't see any reason they should decline it. My friend had a defacto application in a few months back and when she was going on holiday and applied for permission to leave, they just approved the defacto application rather then changing the visa. Though, her partner was from a low risk country. Hope I have the same luck!

Oh crap, I didn't realise that was the case. My partner is here on the subclass 300 and we're getting married in a couple of weeks and then will probably submit the 820/801 application in May. We were planning on heading back to Indonesia for a holiday in September.

I just noticed that under the terms of a bridging visa A it states "A BVA does not allow you to return to Australia if you leave."

Do you have any further info about applying for permission to leave for a holiday and re-enter?

Thanks

This is from the auto email I received:

If you do not hold a visa which permits re-entry, but hold a ‘Bridging Visa A’ (BVA) associated with your partner visa application, you may apply for a BVB (see instructions below) which will permit multiple re-entry to and stay in Australia during processing of your s/c 820 partner visa application. Note that BVBs granted on or after 24 November 2012 have been granted without any work or study restrictions.

You can check if your current visa permits re-entry to Australia by accessing our Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) service at: Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO)

Holders of BVCs and of BVEs are not eligible to apply for BVBs and therefore will be unable to re-enter Australia should they depart, unless they obtain a new visa from one of our overseas visa offices.

To apply for a BVB, download Form 1006 from our website and send it to us at the address provided in your partner visa application acknowledgement letter: (http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1006.pdf).

Keep in mind that if you depart Australia during processing of your partner visa application, and irrespective of any permission that you might have to re-enter Australia, the Bridging Visa you were granted upon lodging your partner application (BVA, BVC, BVE) will cease upon that departure (exception: BVBs which permit return to Australia do not expire on departure). You must remember therefore to apply to have your Bridging Visa (except BVB) replaced upon your return to Australia, (even if you are still the holder of a substantive visa), to ensure that you remain lawfully in Australia pending finalisation of the partner visa application. To apply for a replacement BV, download Form 1005 from our website (http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1005.pdf) and send it to us at the address provided in your partner visa application acknowledgement letter. Note that BVAs granted on or after 24 November 2012 are not subject to any work or study restrictions.

A bit much to take in, but in essence if on a bridging visa A, we need to apply four weeks before the trip to leave and re-enter the country with the BVB.

Thanks for that info. Gawd, they really like to complicate it for people don't they... You would think that it could make things easier by giving you the choice at time of lodging the PMV.

"Are you planning on going overseas in the next 6-12 months? No, oh ok fine here's your BVA"
"Are you planning on going overseas in the next 6-12 months? Yes, I'm going to visit my family and friends for a 8 day holiday with my husband/wife then returning" Oh ok, here's your BVB"

I bet there have been a lot of people caught up over the years who didn't know this, then return from a short trip only to be refused entry. That would be horrific!

Edit: and the application fee for a BVB is $125... grrr
Might have to schedule our holiday before the subclass 300 runs out, less paperwork and fees!

Just another hurdle on the list of visa requirements, could be much simpler. It would be devasting to be held up at customs on such a thing! I'm so glad I found out through
my friend, and credit to forums like this where we can find out/share important info.

Hey ria congrats on the visa!!!
Lucky you!!!
Its been a month and a half since weve got a confirmation for our PMV visa
I havent done my med check up just yet and my partner called the embassy a couple of days ago and was advised to wait for a couple more months before we actually get the med check done.
But the thing is im about to start a new job and cant really take a day off just to do the med check up so im just gonna have to do it at the end of this month.
What do you guys think?
Hey bonezAU and madura its nice that yous and the others are still posting on this forum even tho youve already got your visas approved.
Oh and also the person that he spoke to said that it takes a month or two to get a CO, so hopefully we will get ours soon!

No worries, I still enjoy coming back and seeing how everyone's going. It's amazing the interesting tips and useful facts you pick up whilst reading other peoples stories

It took my fiancee longer than that before she got a CO btw... she applied on 15th May 2012 and the first thing we heard from the embassy was on 5th Sept! Good luck to everyone still waiting though. This exact time 2 weeks from now we'll be married and enjoying our first night together in a luxuary hotel as Mr and Mrs... the nerves are kicking in!!!

Then we start the depressing paperwork all over again, haha.

Dont worry too much about it tho
You guys will be fine
Have fun enjoying your time together as husband and wife

What do we have to do after we get the PMV approved?
From my understanding itll only be valid for 9 months doesnt it?
Do you use an agent?

Yeah I'm sure everything will be okay
After the subclass 300 is approved it is valid for 9 months after first entry to Australia, during which time you must marry your partner then apply all over again for the 820/801. There's plenty of info on the Immi website and in the partner migration booklet (1127.pdf - google it and it's the first result).

We didn't use an agent as such, however I have a friend who is a licensed agent and she helped us prepare a few bits and pieces in the early stages then looked over it before we submitted, so we didn't really use an agent for the whole process but it certainly helps to have friends who are willing to assist like that!

Thanks for your kind words and good luck with your application(s)!
