This is killing me.

Anybody knows whats the process of converting the 300 to 309?

We are aware that we should get married first.

We just dont know if we need to withdraw the 300 then change it to 309 without paying again.

Or we just submit the marriage certificate and other need reqts for 309 then attach it to 300???
I have seen others update application from 300 to 309 once married. No need to withdraw. In addition to the marriage certificate, you could provide evidence of other developments in the relationship such as cohabitation, financial commitments, social acceptance, household commitments and travelling etc.

Thank you for your reply, JandE.

I haven't updated since October yet.

I am planning to update the last qtr of the year info on January.

I doubt if it will speed up the process but Ive been updating my app till I got tired doing it monthly.

I just find it frustrating... We just don't know what is going on with PH, really.

I have been reading about this, and it seems that once married you just switch to the 309, with no extra payment. You would no longer be eligible for the 300.

I would guess that the 300 has to be withdrawn, as the 300 has very high withdrawal rates (25% in 2018/19, compared to about 2.5% to 3.0% for the 309 and 820), possibly because this happens frequently?.

Definitely get decent advice on this, to avoid withdrawing at the wrong time, and falling out of the system.

You probably need to fill the 309 requirements, rather than the 300 requirements though. Not sure if that is applied to your original application date, which then raises the question of why a 300 and not a 309 was applied for originally.

I am curious about this, although no longer relevant for us, as we are well past that now.

However, you are at about 18 months now, and that is a common time for 300's from the Philippines recently.

Have you updated any extra relationship information recently? That can often speed up a grant, assuming you have lodged everything required.

We got lucky when we did the 300. The Philippines staff were pretty fast and helpful. It was surprising, as I wasn't use to that in the Philippines..

An update of information will often trigger something, especially with your time being so close the current normal processing times there.

I would be tempted to send an email asking if they received the "whatever you sent" to them in the last update, and include something else now. It may trigger them to be generous for Christmas, and process it.

You mention "frustrating". You need to get used to that. It goes on and on, also for the 820 and 801, even after the 300. It isn't a pleasant process, and we had 44 months of that in total. And then there is Citizenship after that...

Some info from 2015 at this post: Change from Visa 300 to 309

Please note that if you have applied for Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) and you get married while the visa is being processed then you should provide evidence of your marriage certificate so that your case officer can change your application to a Partner visa (subclass 309).

Please also provide a withdrawal letter for your current Prospective Marriage Visa application and indicate that you now wish to be considered for the Partner visa (309).

You will be considered for a Partner visa (subclass 309) from the date the department receives evidence of your marriage.

Please ensure you send through a copy of your legal marriage certificate, not the decorative marriage certificate.

Please note that there is no additional fee for changing Prospective Marriage Visa to a Partner Visa application.

PMV applicant studying in Philippines

Hi All,

My fiance submitted his PMV application online on 29/10/18. We haven't heard anything from immigration to date and I note the global processing times are now showing as 18 - 24 months
He is a Nigerian citizen currently studying in the Philippines on a student visa. Does anyone know here if AU immigration data matches with PH immigration? My question is if my fiance did not comply with his student visa conditions would the visa processing officer handling his PMV application have access to this information? Would not complying with this Philippines student visa impact on his PMV application?

Thanks

14 months may not be too long for the AHC in Philippines. You may need to wait bit longer.

However, you have an issue here. I don't think it is a good idea not to disclose your partner's previous visa issue. If found, that can be used against the application and possibly leading to a refusal.

It is best if you consult a registered migration agent on this matter.

Wow! Almost 21 months of waiting. Congratulations!

For June 2018 applicants, we haven't heard anything from CO yet.
