When you apply for the second stage visa application 820 first being the PMV.
Does it really matter that you apply straight after your wedding, and also is it true that if you do apply it can sometimes come through very quickly if your luck, in other words we dont need to wait the 2 years before they make a decision?
We are planning through Mark to apply for the 2nd stage but wondered when the right time was. Any ideas.

Hi louiseb

820 is not really second stage visa. The PMV and the 820/801 visas should be seen as completely separate (820 temp is considered the ''1st stage'' while 801 perm is considered ''2nd stage'').

If you have been granted PMV, then you need to apply for the 820 temporary spouse visa after you get married & before the 9 months of the PMV expires. Regardless if you have a PMV or not, you face exactly the same waiting time as anyone else who has applied for an onshore 820 temporary visa, PMV is unlikely to speed this up. The 820 is assessed by completely different set of people compared to the offshore 300, so they'll take their time with their own processes. So that means you might be waiting 13 months for grant of the 820 as per current processing times.

You will be eligible to be considered for the 801 permanent visa 2 years after you have applied for the 820 temporary (same as everyone else). You can't fast-track this & start the 2 years from PMV grant.

Unfortunately, what theskyisblue said above is my understanding as well, Louise. Sorry.

Yeah, it makes sense though - If your PMV expires and you haven't applied for your 820 yet, you have no visa, and no bridging visa. That would be very bad!

Just wanted to add apart from applying before the 9 months is up that it would be best wait as long as you can to apply. That way you have been living together for several months and have a shared life together therefore having more evidence

If when the time comes to lodge your 820 in Australia, you and your new husband have been in a long standing relationship of at least 3 years, then you should be able to request the decision maker start considering the 801 soon after they grant the 820. In these circumstances, the processing time can be much quicker.
