It's another of these things that gets confusing.

We did get a 12 month visitor visa after applying for the PMV though. Hope you can get similar while you wait for the 309 Visa approval.
From what I just affirmed, the 309 does allow a pseudo-Visitor visa to visit Australia after they have received it, and are waiting for the government to determine the applicant's permanent status.
I check the Department of Immigration website, and it says that they even allow Medicare, study and work benefits under this visa while you are waiting.

Can you post that link. The work rights bit must be a very new change. Medicare yes no issues. Though note a VV isn't guaranteed just because you have a partner visa in the works.

Ok lets keep it simple - Partner Visa = you are married. PMV = you will marry sometime.

Everyone posting on here are doubtful you have enough evidence to apply for a Partner Visa at this time (a cost of $7,500 at the end of the day NO REFUNDS) you can try and may get lucky. While you wait you can apply for a Visitor Visa and a reasonable chance it will be granted.

We all believe you meet the requirements for a PMV application (same initial cost) you will have the same chance of getting a Visitor Visa with this application.

When in Australia after a application for a permanent visa has been made, you have the Medicare, work and Study rights.

The 309 visa allows the applicant to visit Australia after they have received it, and are waiting for the government to determine the applicant's permanent status (100 Visa).
While on a 309 visa they allow Medicare, study and work benefits while you are waiting for permanent status.

A visitor visa does not allow work or medicare.

It can take 12 months +/- to get the 309 visa.

Just remember that DIBP are getting tougher and tougher all the time. Also just because a "friend" (someone always has a friend) got their 309 with less time living together doesn't mean you would. They could have alot more evidence or waited awhile after marriage or there is alot of financial evidence etc.

For $7,000 I would do a PMV and postpone the wedding.
