In my case it was faster, less than a month.

We notified immigration of the new passport details as soon as we got it, to ensure the visa was linked to it.

Change of passport details
You need to advise the Department of any changes to your passport details before and after a visa is granted to you.

Your contact and passport details can be updated online via ImmiAccount if your application was lodged online.
Perfect. Thank you for your help!

I met my husband in Brisbane! It’s a great place.

For a PMV, there’s a lot of info that shows showing commitment and a shared life is beneficial - even in long distance relationships.

Things like photos of you and your partner with family members, joint social commitments and proof of a public engagement (not a proposal on the Jumbotron, but that you’re public on social media and open about the engagement) are all good ones.

As this isn’t a US-specific topic, I’d do a search on the forum for PMV evidences people have used - you’d probably have a lot more info to go from.

I think it depends on the circumstances of your relationship (children, police record, health issues, etc) to be able to advise someone on how to make an application stronger but a well organized application that includes all the information outlined on the Home Affairs website with a variety of evidence showing an ongoing, genuine and caring relationship seems to be the preferred method. There are tons of articles on the web or this forum outlining the various components required. Do you have specific concerns?

My two pieces of advice are file/pay as soon as possible and wait 3-4 months before doing health and police checks. As someone who filed 5 months ago from the US and no contact from a Case Officer, in hind-site I wish we had done the minimum to submit and pay, then work on the tedious chores of getting witness statements, NOIMs, assembling all the evidence of banking statements, photos, social media posts, etc, etc. Since US applications take about a year to grant these days, just getting in the queue would've been a smarter thing to do before spending months assembling everything to upload the day we filed. I've seen hardly anyone post recently where a US applicant was contacted by a CO in the first 6 months so the rush to upload everything is unnecessary. Regarding medical and police checks, we waited 4 months before starting on them to assure that when a case officer finally did look at my application the certificates would not have expired resulting in the need to re-do them. I wanted the application to be "front loaded" so they could make a decision immediately and not need a RFI (request for information). Best of luck and welcome!! It's a fun journey you're embarking on!

My fiance from Perth had this Visa for 4 years. He is a software developer for a US company. It was a great Visa for him to be able to stay in the States for a few years until a corporate merger/change in HR policy resulted in him having to head home when it expired. Just wanted to let folks know there are some Aussies who used that visa as intended.

My fiance got his golden email today. He applied for a PMV on February 13th, 2019, from the USA. Fully front loaded. No contact from CO until the grant email.
