Obviously,you’re in the know, not me, and I value any advice given.
Unfortunately in the Australian immigration game, it's not enough. The evidence requirements must be met for the visa to be approved, whether you're married or not. Being engaged but not yet married opens your partner visa options from two to three, with that prospective marriage visa being a bit easier in terms of evidence and seems to cater more to long distance relationships.

Of course no matter which of the 3 options you choose, you'll need to meet the requirements. So get a good read through the DIBP website and learn about each before choosing your path.

300 PMV (prospective marriage visa): https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-...ment-checklist

309/100 (offshore de facto/spouse): https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/309-

820/801 (onshore de facto/spouse): https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/801-

After all this, there is the wait for processing, and it will be months. I'm sponsoring my partner, we are married and now been separated 5 months as I needed to return to Australia for medical reasons. Still waiting for his visa. Approval times do depend on the embassy where you lodge but it can be up to 15 months waiting so be prepared for that.
Thanks for your response to my query. Must be a very difficult time for you at the moment. Being married but being apart I mean.
Me living in the Ukraine is really out of the question, for any amount of time basically. My work is here in Australia as is my daughter. I really have no choice but to stay put.

Unfortunately, it is not so simple. Applying from the Ukraine will pose additional challenges. As others have suggested, start reading up on the various options, so you get a good idea what is involved before you go any further.

Thank you. I shall do as you suggested.
If your partner has skills/qualifications/experience which Australia needs then she may be eligible to apply for skilled migration (which could mean permanent residency) so it might also be a good idea to have a look at those visas on the DIBP website (subclass 189, 190 etc)

I reckon your best option would be the Prospective of Marriage visa (300).

"Eligibility

You must:

intend to marry
have met and know your prospective spouse
be the opposite sex to your prospective spouse (same-sex couples can apply for a Partner visa)
be at least 18 years of age."
