Partner Visa after PMV 300 help

Hi everyone,

I hope youíre all doing well.

My partner and I were granted our PMV 300 last year and we are having our wedding in Australia in May.

I know after we are married we have to apply for a partner visa.

Can anyone please tell which subclass is this visa? What sort of proof and documents will we have to give for it? Will he be able to stay in Australia while itís being processed? And also what is the cost?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Sarah.

Start here: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/...ment-checklist

You'll see it says you need to apply for the 820/801 before the 300 expires.

So then read this: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/801-

You'll need to do basically everything you did for the 300 when you apply for the 820/801. Evidences you supply will be from the grant of the 300 onward and you'll need to upload your legal marriage certificate. Also need new form 888s, likely an AFP check if you've been in Australia for 12 months in the last 10 years (which some people end up doing after a 300 grant), and all the fun identity documents and stuff from the 300.

Hopefully you kept a copy of the 300 app and all the documents in one folder on your computer to make the 820/801 visa app easier.

Will he be able to stay? Yes. That information is all listed on the website. He'll apply before the 300 expires, be granted a BVA that will go into effect once the 300 ends and he's still onshore. That allows him to stay. I strongly urge him to read the entire BVA grant letter as there are conditions like no travel... leave on a BVA and you won't be coming back in to Oz. The BVA website: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/010-

Again, cost is listed on the immigration website. "If you hold a Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) – from AUD1170."

Thank you so much for the info

Do you know if we have to apply for the partner visa immediately after the wedding or does it just have to be done before the 300 expires (September in our case)?

Just I was thinking about time to gather new evidence, the statements and stat dec support forms, starting a new bank account, changing next of kin on drivers license, organ donation info, etc

It does not have to be straight after the wedding, just as long as its before the 300 expires.

Make sure you give yourself adequate time, at least a week minimum before the 300 expires to pay for the 820, to bar any delayed payment processing issues or technical problems, so the bridging visa comes through smoothly

Like Savage said, just needs to be after marrying and before the 300 expires but don't worry about needing to wait for extra evidence. They've already assessed your relationship and they will know you're coming off a PMV.

I would do it sooner rather than later.

Hello everyone,

My fiancť and I have just got our PMV 300 granted today (23Jul17), since we lodged our application on 17Jul2017 (aprx.12 months waiting for this visa to be granted).

Now we are heading to apply for the 820 visa by ourselves, so we are having some concerns as below and would love to hear some of your advice.
#1. Can we apply for the 820 before getting married, then get married submit the marriage certificate later, as long as it’s before the PMV 300 expire? Because we scheduled to have our wedding in Apr, which leaves us only 15 days left until the PMV300 expires (it’s gonna be expired on 27Apr2019). But unfortunately, we can’t make the wedding earlier due to lots of issues. That’s why we are so afraid of not having enough time to lodge and prepare for our 820 visa...

#2. Do we have to prepare all personal documents and relationship evidence, then submit them all over AGAIN, as what we did for the PMV300?

#3. What are the things we have to go through during the 820 visa process? Such as bridging visa A/B...?? (I have no clue about this...)

#4. What are the next steps (in detailed) that we would do after the 820 visa? I have a rough idea that it will be 801 visa for the next stage...but I’m not sure how it would work...

Thanks you guys so much for your comments and advice. We truly appreciate it.

Hey congratulations! We've all been waiting to hear about a PMV 300 grant as there doesn't seem to have been any for ages.

Can I ask where you were applying from?

@Noodlejaffa: (don’t know why I can’t reply to your message...so please find my reply below)

Hello there, thanks for your congratulations.
We applied for the PVM 300 online through Immi account. Our application was lodged in Australia.

When did you apply for your visa?
If you can gather and organzise all necessary paperwork and evidence very well, it might help to shorten the waiting time.

My friends had their visas granted within 6 months bc they had such perfect applications with heaps of great and convincive evidence.

Good luck to you guys!

The 300 is an offshore visa. How were you able to lodge it onshore?
