So for me since my husband is PR it was a straightforward option.
Not too sure what you need to go with as a PMV holder.
I'm a bit confused. In my case, I am actually the sponsor and also a Australian citizen. which option should I go?
We are in the same situation (I’m a PMV holder, my sponsor is an Australian citizen) and have picked the second one option ... dunno if it will work out

It shall be a long time - end of May is optimistic by Qantas at this time.

6 months is a common trend at this time, but many are talking 2021.

My best guess is between 6 months and end of year, depending on the local shut downs.

We have applied for the waiver too as my fiancé is a PMV holder (granted only January), but wasn’t able to come before borders closed.

We applied Saturday, but are still awaiting a response.

Even if we get a yes, it’s not much use at this time as the borders for his country are closed and they are in lock down.

I wonder what will happen if we cannot comply with the visa requirements because of travels bans etc.

You would apply for an extension nearer the time.

Ok thank you. I hope they will allow it.

And if we, for whatever reason, get a no on the waiver, we could still go the extension route?

I don't know if there is information yet for this type of scenario. However if someone was unable to comply with the requirements of a PMV (enter Australia and then marry and apply for an 820 visa within 9 months of the grant), I don't think you can "extend" the 9-month visa period as this would be set by the legislation. However I assume/hope that the government comes up with an approach such as granting a new 300 visa. Hopefully they would also do this at no cost or very little cost to the visa holder.

I think the extension could be done by way of changing the “enter by date”, but I’m not sure. No one knows much it seems. I hope they do something as well. The cost and the possible additional waiting time for the application (in addition to the time waited already, plus this uncertain time) will make an already difficult situation almost impossible. I’m trying not to lose hope about it, but it’s certainly sad.
