Should I come to Australia first then apply for PMV or do it now from Dubai? If I apply for a PMV can I still come to Australia with my visitor visa or will I have to wait for the PMV visa to be granted?
You cannot apply for a PMV inside Australia.

it is an offshore application only.

You can travel on a visitor visa after applying for a PMV. We did.

Can I come to Australia on the visitors visa and get married then apply there for the partners visa or is it better/faster to apply offshore? The plan is to get married and live in Australia before the end of the year but I don’t know what kind of visa to apply for and whether I should do it offshore or when I get there.

That's good! So I still have hope, since my flight is in about 3 weeks! Maybe they give priority to closer intended travel dates!

Fingers crossed!

First of all I’m not an agent, so it’s just an opinion:
Option A: if your 600 visa doesn’t have “no further stay” condition, and you have a compelling and compassionate reason for urgent travel, you can try to apply for exemption. Once granted, you can travel to Australia and get married and apply for 820 onshore visa. Check carefully your visa conditions.
Option B: 300 is offshore visa, hence to apply you must be outside of Australia. After you apply for 300 you can travel with your 600 visa temporarily, but you must be offshore for 300 to be granted. And of course consider travel restrictions.

When we applied for the exemption we put the intended travel date a couple weeks in advance, but once we received the exemption my fiancee had the opportunity to fly sooner so we took it...

Good luck

Dose that mean they stopped processing our 300?? There no time on immi website.
This is not fair ☹️


Some delays to visa processing due to COVID-19

Some visa processing times have been affected and applications may take longer to finalise. As a priority, the Department is processing visa applications for travellers who are exempt from our travel restrictions to support urgent travel.

Maybe they have removed processing time for all visa subclasses and they put this general note at the login step?
Question do we know someone with 309 that doesn’t show processing time?
No doubt 309 will get priority but I have seen grants after the travel ban and obviously exemption to travel for 300.

It is only the 300 in the Partner visa group that hasn't got any processing times for April.

It says: 300 – Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) – Unavailable due to low volume... (very low number of grants, if any)

The 309, 820, 100 and 801 all show the normal processing range.
eg:
309 – Partner (Provisional) (subclass 309) . 13-17
– 75% were finalised in 13 months or less, and 10% took over 17 months.

One of the embassies has quoted this:
Processing of visa and citizenship applications has been suspended until further notice.
A small number of applications will continue to be processed, where the delegate has decided there are compelling or compassionate circumstances that justify finalising the application as soon as possible.


Onshore partner visas look like they are still being processed, if things like overseas Police checks have been finalised, or can still be done in the relevant countries.

Thanks,
I just checked visa 101 Child visa. It is a permanent visa and they can travel to Australia without exemption. They also don’t have indicative timeline.
