Unofficial marriage certificate for 820 application

Hi,

Sorry if this has been covered somewhere in the forums,

What do people think of applying for the onshore partner visa without the official marriage certificate in our possession yet?

My partner and I tied the knot on May 23 and have a bit of a long wait for the official marriage certificate to be mailed to us. She must leave Australia in early July and has been back to Australia for the third time already on a 601 Visa. So I would like to avoid this and apply for the onshore partner visa before this time.

Is it safe to upload the unofficial ceremonial certificate we received and just upload the official one when we get it?

I don't want immigration to turn down the application quickly because of not having the valid legal certificate yet.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

We did, imm didn't turn down the app, they just asked for the legal one to be supplied. So we did when we got it.

Marriage is not a requirement for the 820 visa, (unless you come via the PMV route), so you can't be refused for not having the full certificate.

Even then, many others have done it with the ceremonial certificate, and uploaded later. I recall someone got the grant even before uploading the official one.

Upload the official one later, do not delay the application.

I have heard of individuals also uploading the NOIM signed by celebrant and everyone just to prove it’s legit and leave a note that the official cert is on the ways
