Getting married! You have nine months from the date your visa is granted to get married, and then apply for the 820. You'll provide the same evidence you provided for your PMV, plus anything more recent (wedding pictures, marriage license, etc.) Make sure you keep on holding onto your evidence. The process and wait for the 820 will be the same as it is usually, but it will cost you a little less coming from the PMV.

Hi rhodered, I'm in the same boat. Apart from our wedding preps, I've been collating more evidence and reviewing the checklist for the 801 which I will file as soon as my fiance and I are married. I think among the first docs the applicant needs to secure is the AFP, which takes a little more lead time. Everything else is similar to the PMV -- same forms, 40SP and 47SP -- plus Form 80.

Good luck to us!

I also don't think they make you redo medicals... though I could be wrong. I'm hoping I'm right about that!

My fiancÚ and I have been wondering this same thing! Been doing research. Only 995 aud to apply while applying during the time your PMV is valid. Goes up after. We are now taking about changing our wedding date so my family can come but puts us right close to the deadline. Please let us all know anything you may learn!

It's iffy when you're from the US. We've definitely seen them start requesting Form 80 from US applicants, but I'm not sure if it changes things when you're onshore and going from a PMV to a 820. Might be worth calling DIAC to see what they say. They wouldn't deny you for not including the form - they'd just ask for it if they needed it and didn't have it.

The 820. You can't apply for permanent residency until 2 years after you've gotten your 820.

Oops, sorry I meant to say I was working on my 820 application

As indicated on the following link to the checklist for an 820, version May 2012

http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/_pdf...-checklist.pdf

- If you hold a Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa, you are not required to undergo medical examinations unless you are asked to do so.

- Under Character documents (of the applicant), A completed Form 80 must be provided.
