Hi everyone I am new to this forum and would like to clarify on a few doubts that I am having. Firstly a bit on my background. I am Singapore Citizen and am legally married to my Australian Citizen Husband. We got legally married in Singapore in May this year and we have our marriage cert. we will be holding our traditional wedding in late August this year. I am planning to kickstart the Partner visa application onshore in Oz in Sept.
- What Visa should I be entering Australia prior to applying for my partner visa? I was thinking of the Tourist visa for visiting family but it has the waiver that I am worried about and how it will impact.
- I am planning to get the police and medical checks done in SG before I apply onshore in Australia.
Is that ok?
Kindly advise thanks so much!

The Tourist Visa route is not the best bet, as you may get the no further stay condition, forcing you to go back to Singapore and apply for the Offshore 309 visa.

New rules, that may come into effect at any time, will also need the sponsor to be approved first, and this is thought to be one way to stop people using the visitor visa as a stepping stone to a partner visa.

If Immigration think you are applying for a visitor visa for that reason, you may be refused. (Being married to an Australian might make them think that)

The other option, most often used in your situation, is the offshore 309 partner visa.

A migration agent might have better ideas..

Thank you very much for replying much appreciated. I was under the impression that applying onshore would be good proof that I am legally married and living together with my Husband. Would there be any implications if I apply for the partner visa offshore but live with my Husband in Australia? Like are there any restrictions?

Some people get a Visitor visa (no working allowed), after doing an offshore partner visa application, but some get refused.

It is not straight forward.

The proof of being legally married, (although being married isn't actually required for a partner visa), is just the marriage certificate.

The main proofs are normally the proofs of living together and a joint life, which can be in any country.

We had to do the PMV 300, as we didn't have proof of living together for long enough.

Many people have to live together in the applicants country, or spend months apart if one needs to stay in Australia.

Oh dear certainly doesn’t seem straight forward if no visitor visa is granted. In my case we are in a Long distance relationship right from the start and it eventually culminated in marriage as we are serious about each other. Perhaps it works differently for de facto couples versus those married?

Married or defacto makes little difference. As with the partner visa.
It's about treating it as a seperate application and meeting the criteria, having applied for a partner visa can add weight but it isn't the only factor

Before paying out the $7,715, (there are no refunds) you need to be sure you are eligible for the partner visa. Especially on the proof of a genuine, committed, and continuing relationship with your partner.

Many people do this by showing 12 months living together, being married can help, but I am not sure how much it changes the rest of the requirements.

There are too many refusals, with the top reason being unable to prove the relationship as being what it is supposed to be.

Hi, I am new to this forum and trying to find answers and more informations before we lodge our application. I am applying onshore, it's my second time being here in Australia under my visitors visa (multiple entry), it has been 5mos since I met my partner in person who I've been chatting with online for almost a year b4 we finally meet in person. So in other words, our defacto relationship hasn't reached the minimum time requirements (12months) yet but we have a very compelling reason on trying to apply for prospective marriage visa despite the lack of time they require. We badly want this, do you think the immigration would consider to grant our application? My partner is not getting any younger and wasting our time away from each other is not what we want.

The Prospective marriage visa (subclass 300) sounds the right one for you, it does not need a long relationship, but must be applied for offshore.

Hi all,

I'm also playing the waiting game. I'm Canadian, living with my Aussie partner. I lodged my application in November 2018 and uploaded all required supporting documentation within a month except my medical and police certificate. Just uploaded my police certificate last week. I am waiting for a CO to be assigned before doing medical.

I have only been with my partner for a year and a half so I think that could be why it's taking so long. But we have a lease together, utilities bills, record of contact while apart, joint credit card, joint travel etc so I feel like my application is pretty solid.

I was just informed at work though that although my manager wants to make me permanent, HR has advised her that I can only be offered contract. Super frustrating given that my BVB has zero work restrictions. Anyone else have this problem?
