1) As I am her sponsor, can someone tell me who should fill the Form 888? Does it have to be a person living in Australia and also a person who attended the wedding ceremony? Or can it only be a person known to me living in Australia.

2) What is the average time frame for this visa to be granted? I know it takes up to 12 months but are there any Sri Lankans who have got it well before that time line?

Any help would be highly appreciated as we are new to applying for this visa and we would take any advice for a quicker grant.

Kind Regards,
Hi Akbrocks,

Statutory declaration 888 has to be done by a Australian citizen or permanent resident who aware about the relationship. In this case it doesn't matter your parents or relations who aware about this marrige.

Well its 8-12 months according to my findings. I know its hard.Only what we could do pray focus on something and least expect

Hope info is sufficient.

Thank you!

Hi Njs,

Many thanks for your reply. I have a concern on this, coz PMV is just a 9 months temporary visa (until you get married and apply for partner visa) and I have a doubt if they accept it as a visa to leave the country permanently.

I wish that you would receive some positive news on your application soon

Hi Akbrocks,

Subclass 300 PMV is 9 months Temp.However, you can tell them that you are moving out from the country and also the next visa 820 applying from Australia. It won't be an issue.

Even though its a Temp visa we pay almost $7000 right?

Thanks!

Applications lodged after 31 July 2015, seems to be getting processed within 6-8 months. But keep in mind that every case is different and so is the time.

Hi Everyone ,

Being applicants from Sri Lanka, do we have to go through online “My health declarations” before lodging the partner visa application? I went through the instructions but kind of confused about this.

Glad if somebody could advise

Thanks!

You only use My Health Declarations if you intend to complete the medical check before lodging your visa application. It's usually recommended that you wait to complete the health check until after you've lodged. This way you avoid the likely possibility of your health check expiring before your visa is granted.
