Talking Prospective Marriage Visa Timeline - From Beirut, Lebanon

Hi All!

First let me tell you how helpful this website was while I was working on preparing all the paperwork for the visa process. Let me tell you that it is NOT EASY, you HAVE TO BE THOROUGH, and you have to include ANYTHING that you may think would help the department make sure that your relationship is genuine.
The amount of information and personal experiences on this forum are, I believe, the main reason why my visa was granted so quickly! I was very nervous regarding the time as I come from a "high risk" country and I haven't heard positive feedback before from people applying from my country.

In any case, this is the timeline of my application. I really hope it helps those who are applying from Beirut, Lebanon.
(My fiance is an Australian Permanent Resident, living in Australia for the past 3 years)

- Applied: December 17 2017

- Email sent for providing PID's: December 17 2017
I went and provided fingerprints and picture a week after.

- Application transferred to the Australian Visa Office by TLScontact office: January 10 2018

- Got a call from my CO on February 19 2018, she scheduled an appointment for a phone interview on February 23 2018.
The phone interview lasted around 1.5 hours, she asked all sorts of questions, and my guess is that it went well.

- Medicals requested by department on February 20 2018. I went and did them a week later.

- Throughout the months of March/April, I received several calls from my CO regarding the NOIM paper as there were some mistakes in it.

- Received a call from Embassy (she wasn't the usual CO I speak with), she asked me a question regarding the Form80, sounded VERY nice. 5 minutes later I received an email with the Visa Grant. This was on May 29 2018!!!!

So all in all, the whole application took 5 months and a half!! I NEVER imagined it would be this quick!! Comes to show you that it doesn't matter which country you're coming from as long as you are a good candidate and are able to prove that the relationship is genuine.

Goodluck to all and I hope what I shared was useful.

Congratulations to the couple!

I am planning to apply for my PMV sub class 300 by the end of this month.
My fiance (sponsor) is still waiting for his police clearance to come through. We have the receipt for it.

When did your TRN get generated - was it after submitting your sponsors PCC or just after submitting payment receipt and 47sp?

TRN generated as soon as you have applied online.

Good day everyone,

I've been reading this forum for a couple of weeks now. I just joined today. This website is very helpful.

My partner who is a permanent resident has lived in Australia since 2014. We are completing the requirements for Prospective Marriage Visa subclass 300 and planning to submit by July. We have been in a relationship since January 2018. I'm in the Philippines, by the way, and we got engaged last May 13, 2018, when he went back home to propose.

Does a Prospective Marriage Visa require a 12-month period ongoing relationship? I read that in the De-facto relationship it should be 12 months however I haven't seen any for PMV.

He's my childhood friend and we practically grew up together, we've known each other since 1985.

Is it okay to process the PMV within a 6-month relationship?

Thanks,
Pampi

Hello Pampi,

The PMV does not require a 12 months minimum period. That is only for De Facto relationships where the people have to prove that they've been LIVING together nonstop for 12 months or more.

For the PMV, the most important criteria is that both of you are above 18, have physically met before, and will not marry before your first entry to Australia.

As long as you have proof that your relationship is genuine and ongoing, it doesn't matter the length of it.

Best of luck!!
