Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and already love it to bits as it holds so many informations that i need.
Congratulation on everyone's approved PMV and partner visas and good luck for those who are waiting

So i am an Indonesian who currently is seeing an OZ citizen. He met my family last March and i am to meet his family this coming October on a 1 month tourist visa. We plan to get married next year.

From what i read in this thread, i made my conclusions on how it works? CMIIW
1. Apply for PMV,
2. visit OZ at least once with the visa,
3. get married before the visa expired,
4. move to OZ on PMV
5. Apply for temporary and permanent partner visa on shore (once we are in OZ?)

Is that right?

Regards,
Nina

Yep, that's pretty much one way of doing it. It sounds like you are planning to get married in Indonesia? That is no problem but as you mentioned, as long as you have visited Australia on the subclass 300 visa at least once, you can get married wherever you like.

The only issue you may have is that if you aren't planning on coming to Australia immediately after the visa grant, you'll have problems gathering enough proof for the 820/801 application. Ideally you need to show that you are married, living with your partner, sharing household responsibilities such as utility bills (have some in your name too if you can), joint bank account together, mail sent to you at the address etc.

If you are planning on getting married overseas and then coming to Australia immediately after you're married then I don't think it will be too much of a problem, I would just recommend that you don't waste too much time between when the visa is granted and when you get married... so that you have enough time to collect the evidence above to submit for the 820/801.

Hope I haven't confused you too much, and good luck

Thank you very much for the answer! Nope your answer doesn't confuse me at all, in fact that's an awesome one, thank you

Yap, up to now that is the plan Bonez, be married in Indo and coming with him to Australia right away as it will not be possible for us to live together before that (my family is a conservative one )
Yea I reckon that no time should be wasted once the PMV issued (fingers crossed). I haven't processed anything though...Do you think we need to at least wait a month (live together for a month) before processing the PV so we can provide other documents (such as shared bills, etc)?

Is there any other scheme do you think i can consider?

That's perfectly fine, I understand about not being able to live together until you're married. My partner is from Indonesia as well but her family was not so conservative... her mother was surprised that we'd been sleeping in the same bed for a few months before we were married but she was okay with it in the end

The best thing in my opinion would be to apply for the subclass 300 prospective marriage visa, once granted, come to Australia to 'activate' the visa then go back to Indonesia and get married as quickly as possible. Maybe even plan and prepare everything for the wedding before you come to Australia.

As soon as you are married, come back to Australia and move in with your partner. Get at least one of the utility bills (listrik/gas) changed into your name if possible, open a joint bank account and keep some photos of you two together here. If time allows, live together for 3 months or so and prepare the 820/801 visa then submit it. If your application is 100% complete, you may be lucky and get it granted very very fast (ie. 2 weeks), but if it's not all complete and decision ready they will grant you a bridging visa while a decision is made.

It's even better if you are in a position to:

a) Come to Oz ASAP after your visa is granted, even if you just fly from Jkt/Bali to Perth on a budget airline and stay for a few days!
b) Go back to Indonesia and get married ASAP
c) Come back to Australia to live here
d) Collect evidence over a couple of months

You shouldn't have any issues

If you are not planning to come out here ASAP after your visa is granted then time may be a bit tighter between the wedding and being able to collect enough evidence to show that you are living together etc. Whatever you feel comfortable with at the end of the day should be alright, just don't leave everything to the last minute.

semoga sukses ya...

This thread might help. My partner was able to get a police check done in Surabaya, and it even states the reason for the check as "Visa Australia". Not sure what the go is in Bali, but surely there has to be a way to do it without going to Jakarta or Surabaya.

Hi

I have one question. Does all of the statdecs need to be signed in front of notary?
My fiancee (Indonesian) is going to get the important statdecs signed in front of a notary, but we have some statdecs about a couple of things to clarify something (e.g statdec to confirm that her number that shows up on my phone bill is really her number)

I ask this because the cost of notary in Indonesia is expensive.
It's 300k IDR (30 AUD) for a notary to witness a document to be signed.
We have about 7 important statdecs (1 my fiancee's statdec,6 indonesian supporting witnesses' statdecs) that need to be signed so in total we have to spend 210 AUD for those statdecs.
WE have statdecs from indonesian witnesses because all of my family are Indonesian (I am the one who is australian), all of my friends who know her are in Indonesia and my fiancee has never been to Australia.
