You must be offshore to apply for the PMV. Probably the best bet IMHO, would be as soon as your divorce comes through, apply for a PMV 300 offshore and then when that is granted, get married in Australia. If you marry first then you can't use a PMV, you would have to use the 309 offshore partner visa and that would require much more evidence that you are living as a couple already. Either way, she would have to take the risk of an x-ray whilst pregnant. Going to Australia on a tourist visa and getting married while you are there is inviting potential problems from immigration, but you may get away with it.....

The other problems that you may face is that any process can take months or years to be approved and she may be too pregnant to travel by the time immigration makes any decision...

It's almost a given that any tourist visa issued to an Indonesian is going to have a no further stay condition. It's classed as a high risk country.

I've been through the tourist visa process for 6 people (my wife's family members), all Indonesian citizens and they all had this condition applied to the visa. So that idea probably won't work for you.
Best to go down the subclass 300 route, that's what I would do anyway.

I doubt you can apply for any partner visa until your divorce is granted.

Guys n gals, after 6 months , between posts, got married in Indo few weeks ago, and submitted documents to Aust Consulate in Bali. She is due in May, so nothing can happen before then i realise.

Now that you've married, your only real option is offshore partner visa 309, as she will probably get a no further stay on a tourist visa. Processing times vary so nobody can say you won't get her here for Christmas but I seriously wouldn't be counting on it.

Congratulations Bowsaw on your wedding and soon to be baby.

Once your baby is born you will need to get Australian Citizen by Descent for your child (could take 1 to 2 months) Then you will need to get Australian Passport for you child could also take some time.

It took me 2 months for Citizen By Descent for my children and 4 months to get there passport. All from a low risk country.

Well, it really depends if they believe she's coming for a genuine holiday... It could be hard when you're already married with a bub... Part of the tourist visa application process for high risk countries is showing that she has more reason to return home than to overstay the visa and not leave. You might have trouble proving that. Usually people show letters from employers and family etc to show that they plan to return home. You might have a hard time I'm thinking.

Can you guys just live overseas and apply offshore then come back once it's approved?

But... You need to take into account she'd possibly get a no further stay condition applied if she does get a tourist visa, and in that case she couldn't apply for a partner visa onshore anyway.
