Marry using a tourist visa

Dear all,

My fiance and I have submitted our PMV on the 3rd of September 2012 and are just praying and waiting..We have already indicated in our application for the date of our marriage to be on teh 30th DECEMBER this year and arrangments have already been made...I hope the immigrations will work towards this date :-)...If the PMV is not granted before our wedding date,can i take a tourist visa to go and marry?

are there any issues etc ? please someone to help me

thanks and cheers,

Dee and Pat.

No, you can't get married while waiting for your PMV. After getting married, your application wouldn't be valid any longer (cause you'd be married) and you'd have to apply for a partner visa instead and pay a fee again. And because your tourist visa would probably have a No Further Stay condition, you would have to leave Australia anyway and apply for your (now partner) visa offshore - the application would have to be done again from the start, that's a lot of work and a lot of proper evidence.

All the best!
