PMV to 820: Substantive visa question

Hi,

There is a question on the online steps for visa 820 application from PMV. It asks if you hold "Substantive visa". is PMV a "Substantive visa"?

below is the message it gives on the information tag.
Thanks very much


Substantive visa
If the applicant currently holds a bridging visa which is in effect or does not hold a visa then they do not hold a substantive visa.​

Hi curious110

Yes. If by "PMV" you mean a Prospective Marriage Visa.

Why: see definition of "substantive visa" in s 5 Migration Act, which says a substantive visa is anything other than a bridging visa, a criminal justice visa or an enforcement visa.

Kind regards

do you know if for 820, does the applicant and sponsors declaration can be just written a blank paper and witnessed by a person in the profession list or does it have to be on statuary declaration form?

the booklet says either.

thanks very much

Form 888 or stat.decs. must be witnessed. You personal statement can just be written on plain paper. You must sign and date it, but it does not have to be witnessed.
