Noting PMV in Visitor Visa Applicaiton

HI all,

I have been with my partner from Thailand for 4 years and previously we have had a couple of 3 month visas and one 12 month multiple entry visa. My partner went back to Thailand in November last year ( I have been to Thailand a few times since she returned) and we have never had any issues in obtaining the visitor visas so far. We are going to try for a another 12 month multiple entry visa as we have a number of things on here over the next 12 months. We got engaged at the beginning of November last year and give the time to get a PMV and that I have relocated from Brisbane back to Sydney in March this year we are aiming for a wedding sometime in early 2021.

So in the visa application we are currently noting that one of the activities that she will be conducting when she is her is doing some organizing for the wedding as we need to organize a celebrant, obtain a NOIM and venue etc.



My question is that would you think there is any issue in noting that we are intending to submit a PMV application sometime in 2020 and that these items for organizing a wedding as some of the activities to be conducted during her visits here.

Its just that a visitor visa must be only for the purpose of a genuine tourist and I wonder if mentioning the above would be considered contrary to this and jeopardise the visitor visa application.



Many thanks in advance,

Pedro

This is fine under Department policy for visitor visas. The fact that you will be applying offshore for a PMV is a good indicator that she will comply with the visa terms:

"For example, if an applicant seeks to travel to Australia to meet future parents in law and determine whether they wish to live in Australia with their partner, but has a history of abiding by visa conditions and will be returning home to complete a university degree prior to making a Partner visa application there may be no concerns about the genuine nature of the visit."

It is open to them to impose a "no further stay" condition, but that is not the default and would not be an issue in your scenario anyway.

We specifically stated those reasons for our 600 visitor visa, while we were waiting for the PMV to be processed.

The 600 was granted in the September, and the 300 granted the following March.

A lot of sponsors do the application, from wherever they are, but it is still technically the applicant that officially does it, no matter who actually fills in the online forms.

I did ours for my now wife. But did it in her name. I asked her at the end if it was all OK to submit, she said yes. So it was 'officially' her doing it, with a bit of help (99%) from me

So my fiancÚ will have to do it and say he wants to visit Australia to spend time with me even though we have a visa 300 pending, in which I was the sponsor for.
