Sponsorship rules for partner visa / PMV

I hope someone may have some knowledge to share about this.
I am an Australian citizen. Some years ago I sponsored my partner successfully on a PMV. Unfortunately we didn't get married and she returned to her home country.
Now I find myself with a new partner, a Vietnamese citizen who I intend to marry as soon as my eligibility to sponsor again of 5 years has elapsed.
The immigration website is unclear in specifying the time that I am eligible to be a sponsor again. Is the 5 year limit date calculated from the visa grant date, the visa expiry date or from the date of the application.
Many thanks for any advice in advance.

5 years from application date.

A sponsor who has previously sponsored a partner or prospective marriage visa applicant cannot sponsor another partner or prospective marriage visa applicant until at least five years have passed since the first application was made.

sponsorship elligibility

Thanks for clarifying for me.
In fact I intend to get married in Vietnam in January 2020.
My eligibility to sponsor again will be June 2021 according to my original application date.
I intend to bring my wife to Australia temporarily on a visitors visa after we are married.
I am concerned to know whether there is a risk of a visa refusal. I don't want to jeopardise our future partner visa application.
Any advice much appreciated.

There is always a risk of a visitor visa refusal.

But even those refusals don't normally compromise a partner visa.

Just add in the relevant explanations where required.

There is a huge chance that the visa will be refused or at the very least have "No further stay" condition imposed. I would consult one of the RMAs that post on this forum for advice before you go making any definitive plans.
