Possibly for Russia, as it appears there are many issues that are not the same as many other countries.

My ex wife never had any negative issues after the name change.

It is too recent to compare for my current wife, but she says she can't see any negative issue.

wow, so somebody perhaps in same situation as I am with the 5 year rule applying . When immigration are only interested in one side of a story , ie the sponsored person's version , it makes it tricky for the sponsor 5 years later ! ( wry smile ).

Not an issue for Thailand either.

Update to our story:

Well as previously posted we received our Prospective Marriage Visa on the 1st of May 2019 and my now wife arrived on the 21st May 2019. Given the requirement by DIBP to marry within the 9 month Visa period we so did in Australia formally and Thailand informally. Wow, time has flown and since our return to Australia in October we have applied for the 820 Temporary Partner Visa. This Visa has yet to be granted so we were also granted a Bridging Visa class A should our PMV expire (February 1st 2020) before the DIBP checks our application for the 820.

All up about $8500 AUD for visas and now our married life can continue normally while the application process happens.

All in all a manageable experience with the costs being something extraordinarily high to immigrate.

Deadly! Congrats, you guys must be stoked! 7 months is good timing too.

Get ready for the 801, it comes faster than you might think! Haha.

Hi,

My PMV started in July 2016 and was finalised with 801 in March 2020, I did the online application on my own, did not use an agent either, all proceeded with ease, never received any issues or requests from Immigration, went all smoothly. My wife was from Ukraine.
I uploaded as much evidence as I could while we were apart, plenty photos and good declarations from family and friends of our relationship, I think immigration can quite easily spot if an application is true or not?
All the best for your application.

Thanks so much. Yes it is obvious with the information we provided. Immigration requested another Police Check for me because 12 months validity had passed and my wife another Form 80 Character Assessment.

This now allow us to get on with life until the 801 Stage 2 "test of time" application.

Thanks again.

Can you confirm your application was NOT processed in Russia?
