Thanks Louise, Thats right,I was just looking through the partner booklet and it says if you apply straight to partner visa subclass 820,the fee is $3975 but if you have a PMV subclass 300 and then upgrade to a Partner visa 820,its $995..

thanks again and God bless

Yeah the PMV part of the application is $2680 and once you have it then it is $995 for the 820 when now married and holding the PMV 300 and it is $1260 if the PMV has expired.

In response to the OP. My fiance has arrived on his PMV, and we are wondering if he will be able to get a medicare card - he has friends here (from the UK) on Working Holidays who have obtained medicare cards...
I think it would be silly to give someone on a working 'holiday' (read: only staying for a year or two) medicare rights, but someone who intends to move onto a more permanent visa isnt eligible?
I wanted to get him added to my private health insurance, but the health insurance wanted to know what colour medicare card he held... so obviously for him to be added to my private health care, it seems he needs a medicare card. catch 22?

Hi littlekitty

Your partner won't be able be eligible for a Medicare until he actually applies for the 820 spouse visa.

Your friends from UK on Working Holiday visas are able to get Medicare cards because Australia & UK have reciprocal rights under that particular visa program arrangement.... when I was living/working in UK on my Working Holiday visa, I was likewise able to get a NHS card & use their health system.

Hi Ms September!
Could you give me more details of how you did it please?
You just had to take your marriage certificate or the thing they give you as a proof as soon as you get married and where to?

So you didn't have to wait to apply for the partner's visa 820?

Thank you very much!
