I think that's correct about 300. Here is what it says about 309: Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100)

The department will advise you of the date you are required to enter Australia (your initial entry date) at the time of visa grant. Your initial entry date is usually the same as the expiry date for the validity of either your health or character checks, whichever is the earlier.

If you do not enter Australia by the initial entry date, your Partner visa may be cancelled.

If before your Partner visa is granted, you advise the department that you will not have sufficient time to reasonably finalise your affairs and make the necessary travel arrangements, the department may consider changing your initial entry date to a later date.
Note: In these circumstances, you may need to undergo new health and / or character checks before you can be granted your Partner visa.

Thanks for the link, an interesting read about visa decisions. Definitely worth having a look for all of us in limbo

Visas are granted on the basis of intention.
The PMV is granted because you applied to DIAC with the intention to marry your Australian/overseas partner.
It's valid for 9 months from the grant date. You MUST get married within that 9 months.
Otherwise it will expire and you start all over again.
To activate the visa, you must return travel to Australia (most cases). You cannot marry before you've traveled.

In my case, my fiance will travel to Australia then return home. I will travel to South Africa to marry, then we'll both return to Australia, together!!

That will give us about 3 months before the visa expires.
Then onto the 820 TR application straight after our return.

I don't want my new wife to be an illegal after the PMV expires.

That's the intention anyway

Ok same as the Fiance Visa coming to the US. My husband had to move here and we had to marry within 90 days. So we got married a week after he moved here haha It's all slowly starting to make sense! It sounds a lot different than the fiance visa my husband had coming to the US. The fiance visa coming here is a one entry visa but I'm guessing that isn't the case with the PMV if you are getting married in South Africa?

This is for the PMV 300 from the website
What does the visa let me do?
With this visa, you:
•must enter Australia before you marry your fiancé
•may leave and re-enter Australia as many times as you wish before your visa ceases (nine months after visa grant)
•can work in Australia
•can apply for a Partner visa in Australia after you marry your fiancé
•can study, but you will not have access to government funding
•may use Australia's medical expenses and hospital care assistance scheme, Medicare, but only if you are in Australia and have already applied for a Partner visa.

I am always greatful for the collective knowledge shared on this forum. I also think thank there is a couple of stand out people like college girl or kitty kat who really need to apply to work in the immigration department when they get to Australia. They also would be able to bring a heart/compassion to the job. Just food for thought ladies

Thanks for posting.

Too right. I would be lost while applying/waiting for this visa. It's so helpful to know there are other people in the same boat who are so knowledgeable and can help others!

Yes Bashisot
If not for this forum (the first i have ever joined) i think i would be half mad (aussie slang). It has been very difficult to even communicate to my fiancee due to where she lives in PH. She jokes that she climbs a coconut tree to answer the mobile phone (there is no landline/computer service in her province) though the reality is she runs up the road when i call and goes upstairs in her aunties house. Yet we still find ways to communicate. A new mobile service provider placed a tower 7 meters from her front door and it was good for a couple of weeks until typhoon Pablo wiped it out as well as her parents house (where she lives) and farm. They are rebuilding of course and as the local school teacher she is so torn between coming to Australia as soon as possible or staying there until the last minute. You can see the carnage on utube of compostella valley in the philippines. I am sorry i got carried away with our personal story but felt others would better appreciate their circumstances

That is so kind of you, Aussieboy. I know Ktty definitely deserves that kind of honor, but I'm not so sure I do - I still feel there's so much I have left to learn, or answers I give that are not quite perfect. I do my best, though, because I love helping people, especially people in love who only want to be together.
