Prospective marriage visa subclass 300

My current wife was granted a prospective marriage visa in may. She then travelled to Australia and we got married last week. Does the prospective marriage visa end or continue until we apply for the next Temporary partner visa. She needs to go home to China to get some paperwork for the next visa and she is worried her Visa status has changed since we got married and she will not be able to travel.

Thanks

This visa allows you to:

enter Australia before you marry your prospective spouse,
travel in and out of Australia as often as you want,
work in Australia, although some employers might not hire people with temporary visas,
study in Australia, but with no access to government funding for tertiary study,
apply for a Partner visa, in Australia, after your marriage

Yes i understand these conditions. The question i asked is does she remain on the prospective marriage visa even though we are married. I have been told by 2 different people that once we marry and before we apply for the next visa she can't travel overseas.

I'm not an expert but I would say as long as you don't lodge the partner visa you still have the PMV

She is still on the PMV until it expires or you are granted the 820 Partner Visa (you are applying for this prior to expiry and after marriage).

So yes she can go back to China get paperwork, come back on current visa.

Dave came here in April on PMV, we got married this October in Australia, have just come back from a honeymoon in the USA. No issues at all coming back to Australia.

Dave's PMV visa expires in December, so we will be applying for the partner visa very soon.

Don't apply for the partner visa until she is back home in Australia.

My advice is to apply for the 820 before she goes overseas but she can still travel on the PMV overseas.

The reason I say this is that the 801 wait line is 12 to 15 months and the eligibility is based on the 820 eligibility date so the sooner the 820 is lodged the sooner you can apply for the 801.

Basically from our PMV to 820 the only new document we uploaded was the marriage certificate. It was granted in about 2 weeks before I uploaded anything other than ID docs.

Written questions were "refer written statements" I never got a chance to upload them before 820 was approved.

If you do apply before going to China, advice IMMI you will be out of Australia (so they don't grant it while away).

Stay on the PMV and don't apply 820 yet if she is ready to travel now. My 820 from PMV was granted within a month but the bridging visa I was given while waiting did not give travel rights. As far as applying 820 as soon as possible because of the two year wait to 801 eligibility, this shouldn't matter if you plan on being together for the rest of your lives...
