PMV to 820 Help (USA)

Hi guys,

So we just got married, and now want to apply for an 820 visa.

We are unsure on where to start. The PMV runs out in 2 months.

She wants to change her name now that she is married, but will that affect the processing time or confuse immigration?

She is from the US, so does anyone have any advice on what order to go about with changing your name from in Australia.

It is best to do the 820 and then do the name change. She has to wait for the marriage certificate and then change it with the US embassy here in Australia and then wait for the new passport before she can change her name with DIBP.

Things like bank accounts etc can be changed once she had the official marriage certificate.

As Mish has said, don't change name until after you've lodged the 820. It'd complicate things and you don't have enough time.
In the Asian culture, women keep their name, no complications

!! 2 months to go, I'll recommend you lodge in your 820 ASAP!!
