Wow Congrats!! But what reason you have given in the section "Please explain why you need to travel to Australia now*"
I just want to know if you have given any compelling or strong reason that your spouse is alone or something like that..??

Apparently they aren’t accepting any pv 300 even if you try to send an exempt

Our initial travel exemption request was denied. But amazingly I tried again (second time I made a plea from my own perspective rather than my fiance) and was approved! I would suggest to keep trying. The squeaky wheel gets the oil sometimes

You do have to give a strong reason why you need to travel. We had already planned to travel for family reasons. We just explained that it was important we get back home as both my parents are at high-risk for COVID19 and need our support.

As far as I have seen, there is no expiry date for the exemption and it doesn't necessarily state that you must travel on your intended date. Given a lot of countries/airlines have reduced their flight schedules, it's reasonable to expect that your intended travel date may change and I think DOHA would be understanding of that.

I saw a PMV300 applicant on here just a couple of days ago that was accepted for the exception.

The decision might be based on how long the relationship has been.
ie: A couple that have only 'seen' each other for 2 weeks might not be granted, while a couple who have lived together for 6 months might get the exception.

Hi ..
So I just attached proof of my relationship with my husband and said I just want to spend time with him. I actually received my 309 and 100 Visa 1 day after I received approval on travel exemptions and I just got back to Melbourne a few days back and in quarrantine

Hi Buddy, mine is similar case, but they refused me and did not gave exemption. Can you please tell me in detail what reason you gave in the form for exemption for immediate family members, if you can tell me, it will be of great help.
My Case: My Wife if PR holder, living in Melbourne. I hold Sub 600. Not filed any dependent visa as of now.

Your guess seems to be right ... I have been dating with my fiancé for 3 years, total time we have spent physically together is approximately one year; maybe that’s why I was able to get the exemption.
I find it amazing that PMV holders aren’t allowed to enter Australia just because we don’t have a marriage certificate! Just because of that we are not considered to be a family member of Australian ... that’s insane

As has been said before it has a lot to do with the length and permanency of the relationship.
Don't forget the intent of the visa originally was to allow someone to come to Australia and stay for up to 9 months, during that time they could make the decision if they wished to marry their fiancee and stay, and if it didn't work out they returned home, and I know of quite a few who did.
The visa , and the requirements have changed over the years, with people now having to provide relationship proofs similar to that of a partner visa, but I can assure you that over 30 years ago when I sponsored my now wife, the only mandatory requirement was that we had actually had met in person, and once the visa was granted we had to provide a marriage certificate within 9 months of the visa grant for her to stay. ( which we did, and in those days she became a permanent resident immediately)
So a PMV is quite different from a 820 visa, the sponsored party only becomes a family member once the marriage, if indeed there is one, takes place.
