Arrow VISITOR VISA while processing PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE VISA

Hi all.
I am the sponsor (aus citizen) and my fiance is overseas (Philippines).

We are planning to apply for a visitor visa for him
so that we can spend time together in mid May.

He will only be here for 2 weeks which will be until the end of May (he cant stay longer anyway because thats the max amount of time he can get to leave from his job).

Hypothetically speaking, probably his Visitor Visa may be granted and may have a validity period of 3 months or 6 months or 1 year..?

But in mid June we are planning to lodge our Prospective Marriage Visa (thats the earliest time we can lodge it because of other personal matters).

So let's say after he visits here in MAY, he will be back in the Phillipines and
in mid JUNE we will lodge the PMV.
Once we lodge the PMV, does that mean his visitor visa (lets say for example it will still by valid by june) will not be valid anymore?

Because after we lodge the PMV , maybe months later he will visit me here again while pmv decision will be pending.

Lodging the PMV will have no effect on any other visa he holds. Once it's approved, it will replace any other visa though.

You will most likely only get a 3 month visa, unless you apply for 12 months, and give reasons.

Our first visitor visa from the Philippines, a three month one, was a SINGLE entry visa. ie: after first use, it could not be used again.

In your situation it will probably just be a case of apply for another visitor visa, after the PMV is lodged, for the next visit.

We got a 600 visa in Nov 2014, for 3 months
The PMV application in June 2015
and another 600 visa in Oct 2015, for 12 months.

The processing times for these two visitor visas were 21 and 28 days.

Don't ask for the Maximum time, I would click the up to 6 month option on the form.

Word the visa tourist statement as a tourist and have an itenary, like you want to show him around different tourist spots. Make it sound like a tourist visa not time apart relationship stuff.

If he doesn't have enough savings in the bank like under $5000 Aud it wont get approved, I would suggest a family sponsor tourist stream visa.

That might depend on the applicants nationality.

I've known a few normal visitor visas with nothing in the bank, and the visa was granted.

Family sponsored visas have a higher refusal rate, and I know one personally that was refused, even with $10,000 in the bank.
