Incoming Passenger Card for PMV

Even though we have the visa grant, I will not relax until my partner has emerged from immigration/customs - the level of distrust I have for our officials

My question is - on the incoming passenger card they ask if you intend to live in Australia for the next 12 months.

Should we tick, 'yes'?

Clearly my man does, as we are going to get married and then apply for the spousal visa which will allow him to do so.

BUT if we tick yes, will they try to use that against him the fact that at the moment he can only stay less than 12 months (the remainder of the nine months) on his current visa?

Further to that, I presume we tick 'visitor or temporary entrant' rather than 'migrating permanently?'

The normal progression for the prospective marriage visa (SC300) is that the applicant comes to Australia, is married within 9 months, and then applies for the onshore 820/801 partner visa. As such, it's perfectly natural to "intend" to live in Australia for the next 12 months. Re: the box to tick, I would recommend "visitor or temporary entrant" since the Prospective Marriage Visa is not a permanent visa. On the first entry to Australia after your partner is issued the subclass 820 or 801 visa (or a bridging visa for that application and you're returning on a Bridging Visa B required for travel), that's the time to tick the "migrating permanently" box.

so after the PMV is approved, must one purchase a 1 way or round trip ticket?
