What is the applicant's nationality. Just wondering if that has something to do with it.

It seems you could have bypassed the 300 visa, and gone the 309 route.
I think you must be the first to get the long term relationship benefit from the PMV300 route.
Hi jane,

I believe there is one other forum member which has a similar outline as my case although they had been together for 6 years

Her nationality is Russian.

I've checked the immigration website, they define long term relationship as follows:
__________________________________________________ ________________

Long term relationship

You are in a long term relationship when you lodged your application, if you had been with your partner for either:

3 years or more
2 years or more, and there is a dependent child from this relationship
__________________________________________________ ________________

I would certainly hope there aren't any other parameters. But none the less I hope this gives other people hope who have similar cases as mine. Submit your consideration letter along with the 820 application if you think you tick the boxes like we did


EDIT: Found the person who had a similar situation to ours - It was Miss Swan (https://www.australiaforum.com/visas...html#post92771)

One other parameter might be where the Immigration website states: "Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship". However, they do say "might", leaving it open maybe for other specific circumstances.

That example you gave, Miss Swan, didn't do the PMV, she did the 820. But with 4.5 years of dating, and 3 months of marriage, yes, similar to yours. And she was surprised to get it too.

I also know that immigration do sometimes get things wrong, so other people shouldn't bank on it being the same.

We did a paper based Visa application once, but didn't certify anything (black and white photocopies), but they granted the visa without any questions.

Immigration is interesting at times.
