If doing a visa application yourself it is very important that you pay attention to details and read everything carefully.

Simple mistakes can sometimes be the difference between a grant and a rejection.

Along with the 7k application fee, how much income do you need to show? Work history etc.. For a 300 pmv? Seems like having a foreign wife is a luxury only for the wealthy. The more I research the possiblity the more my heart breaks.

There are currently no income requirements for sponsors, but there are some people / political parties who would love to bring in such a requirement.

Your research may be flawed.

No work history or income is required.

Many poor people, on Centrelink benefits alone, are able to sponsor a PMV or partner visa in Australia.

Other countries have those conditions, but Australia is comparatively soft on that, fortunately..

But not for long if certain people have their way...

I had to prove income to sponsor my husband for his American Green Card. While it sounds really scary and intimidating, you only need to show that you make 125% of the poverty level, which was approximately $20,000 a year. Being that the filing costs were 1/4 of that - it isn't an issue for many, if not most, couples.

Is that in US$ or A$.

US Filing costs of $5,000 for a partner visa is higher than I expected.

If an income requirement is brought in, here in Australia, it will cut out quite a few sponsors, whose only income is a Centrelink benefit.

USD. They also allow co-sponsors (family or friends) as well to meet the income requirements.

For my husband’s onshore change of status, as well as medical/biometrics it was $5000USD all-in for his Green Card. This can fluctuate based on circumstances of situations, though, so not a one size fits all like Australia is.

So that would have been about A$30,000 income requirement and A$7,500 filing fees, at todays FX rate.

I wonder if the Australian plan is to copy that.
