What are the common reasons for refusal PMV

Does anyone know of any common factors why a PMV should be refused. I have lived with my partner for two years and we have more than enough proof, so being refused because we are living apart is not a factor with us. But is there other common factors why a PMV should be declined.

Thanks in advance guys
thanks Louise

Louise, living apart is actually not a reason for being denied the PMV. There's no requirement for living together for that visa. If you didn't have proof you met in person, like pictures (clearly you do at this point) that might be an issue... medical issues can be a problem... not providing everything the application asks for, like not providing statutory declarations from friends and family at all... I don't know what else would do it. The PMV seems to be the one requiring the least evidence.

Hi Louise -

The most common reasons for a subclass Prospective Marriage Visa being refused (beyond the usual issues with missing docs, bogus docs, etc) focus on the relationship being genuine. It's why they added the language re: "must have met and be personally known to each other" language a while back, as this visa is sometimes seen by applicants as a short-cut for other visas they may not qualify for. The relationship evidence assessment is not as severe as it is with the partner visa as you aren't expected to be living together yet, and can focus instead on evidence pertaining to relationship development issues such as how and when you met (in person and otherwise - online, etc), how the relationship developed and over what time period, how the relationship is viewed by close friends and family, etc.

Are finances a reason to be rejected?

Yes, they can be - and this is an interesting issue in that the old Assurance of Support (AOS) requirements have been removed from partner visa applications. However, DIAC still wants to see employment and income info for the sponsor with the subclass 300 visa application and with partner visa applications.

Hi MarkNortham,


Is this a big factor also for an onshore applicant? Having no joint account?

See, that makes me so nervous. Neither my fiance or I have much money. He's a hard worker, owns two shops and has done farm work his whole life. He also let immigration know of his plan to jump straight into farm work when he arrived here....BUT, I'm not working full time right now (and wasn't working at all when we applied). We were told when we called and asked about this, that this would not matter as long as others in our family were willing to back us up financially, but we've had no feedback on it.

I get so sick with worry over this, even though I'm actively looking for full time work.

The good thing is that DIAC looks at the entire support picture - letters or statements of support from family members are definitely helpful and factored into the decision.

I am on a disability support pension and work part time and I believe I proved this to be adequate to show I could support my fiance when he comes here. He is not working at the moment as he is in Greece where things are bad and he has no money to speak of. I am not renting though so this might make a difference in terms of bills I pay.

I dont think you need millions..you just need to show you can house and feed him and provide medical bills.

One thing I thought of when I read your comments was to ask if you have had an interview or are planning to? If you are planning to just be careful about saying he will come over and jump straight into a farming job. You would day this as you are focusing on satisfying the financial criteria they need you to meet...however in an interview this kind of statement is viewed very poorly as it is seen as evidence that the applicant is focused on coming here for work prospects primarily rather than love....and being that your man is from high risk African country like mine, they are super suspicious about this.

Just thought I would mention that

They waived our interview, so we haven't had one. Not sure what that means, I was hoping it was a good thing though.
