PM Visa

Good Evening All,

My fiancee will be applying for her PM Visa in April 17, she is from Montreal in Canada. We have documented both visits that I have made so far and the one visit she has made (She currently has a second already booked and paid for and I am in the process of getting prices for a 3rd and 4th trip). In addition to these visits there are pictures of ourselves, friends and family together, joint invitation to a wedding and an extensive list of Skype/Facebook Messenger video logs and chats about specific events, dates, marriage, lifestyle etc etc.

The only thing that is preventing us from actually applying now is that I am still married and cannot apply for divorce until April.

Does anyone have any experience in Divorce and the PM Visa?

Did you apply before Divorce finalised and then submitted documentation a couple of months later?

Generally how long after documentation requested do you have until the cancel the application if not submitted?

We have known each other for approx 14 mths, and have approx 14 mths worth of evidence from experience is that generally enough (still will be collecting more till not required)?

How have people gone with a tourist visa and then getting the PM visa granted whilst in Australia on holidays? When coming in on a tourist visa did they require a ticket for a return trip home?

Sorry for the questions but I am sure you all understand the paperwork and wanting to get everything done correctly first time to minimise any delays .

* I applied for Divorce and was given a hearing date about 3 months later. I applied for PMV just before the hearing date (a day or 2) and from memory I uploaded the divorce papers within a week of PMV application. Might pay to check your local processing time frame for Divorce finalization, they seem to vary a lot.

Generally how long after documentation requested do you have until the cancel the application if not submitted?

*You would want to have a valid application loaded fairly quickly, I would not stretch it out more than over 2 weekends for a Valid Application or more than 28 days all uploads. After that I just added new evidences monthly.

We have known each other for approx 14 mths, and have approx 14 mths worth of evidence from experience is that generally enough (still will be collecting more till not required)?

*Should be but keep collecting.

How have people gone with a tourist visa and then getting the PM visa granted whilst in Australia on holidays? When coming in on a tourist visa did they require a ticket for a return trip home?

* Get an ETA. ( Would you have enough evidence for an Onshore Partner Visa by time of your Divorce?)

Sorry for the questions but I am sure you all understand the paperwork and wanting to get everything done correctly first time to minimise any delays .

We had a return ticket for the visitor visa during PMV waiting time. (Just a cheap one as we knew we would not use it.)
The PMV cannot be granted while in Australia. You need to leave the country for the grant to be given.

We were granted Visitor Visas valid for 1 year from date of grant after we applied for PMV. Some get Visitor Visa for a year but must go offshore every 3 months. The ETA has this 3 month stays and is valid for 1 year.

We did not have return tickets to Ukraine on the Visitor Visas, we went to Singapore and Vietnam when we had to go offshore for PMV grant.

Maybe you should clarify. When you say PM visa, do you mean the subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa (which the acronym PMV is used for) or Partner Migration visa (in which case you should just call it a "partner visa" or by the subclass number you intend to apply)?

Thank you for everyone that replied. I have decided to wait till a month after the divorce should be settled and then see what time frame i have from there.

Apologies regarding the acronym i have only been looking at the PMV so had just changed it to PM visa to prevent my self writing PMV Visa.

And the evidence collecting continues. So far my stat dec is at 8 pages and have multiple emails regarding wedding plans, pics together, reciepts and tickets.

I think that most people may consider the PM visa or PMV as the same thing, the Prospective Marriage Visa 300.

If applying for the 820/801 or 309/100 partner visas, it may be best to specify the by number, as it may be confusing
  • Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) PMV
  • Partner (Provisional) visa (subclass 309)
  • Partner (Migrant) visa (subclass 100)
  • Temporary Partner visa (subclass 820)
  • Permanent Partner visa (subclass 801)
The above are terms taken from Border.
