Hi there April,

If your planning to get married in Australia, I recommend a PMV. Although many people get tourist visas, marry in Australia and apply onshore, this route can be risky.

Read this sticky for a run-down on the risks:

http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...ing-visas.html

If you manage to get a tourist visa without a no further stay condition, you can apply onshore, but you won't have working rights and the wait onshore for partner visas is now up to 9 months, which is a long time to sit around doing nothing. You can apply for working permission, but you have to give a very good reason for DIAC to grant it to you.

Visa

Hi Aussie girl..

thank you for your information. The fact is, i had to go back to Indonesia after i get married at australia. With this condition, is it still risky to use tourist visa?

Thank you

If you just want to get married and leave again, I guess a tourist visa would be fine. If you were asked by customs, you could just explain that you are going to get married and go back, which is backed up by your return ticket.

In my opinion, you're better off applying when you go back to Indonesia after the wedding. Trying to lodge onshore in such a short time would only be possible if you had everything ready to be lodged. Plus, if you lodge onshore, you have to be onshore when it's granted.

Go to this link:

Partner Migration Booklet

Download the partner booklet and read it thoroughly, front to back, until you have a clear picture of what to do.

Also look here:

Immigration Advice & Rights Centre Inc. - Information

Scroll down and find the links for the partner visa guide.

You also need to look on the Australiam embassy for the country you are in (if you're not is Australia that is) as things differ slightly from place to place.

I would appreciate anyone's answers on this.
Thanks so much.

Yes Ma'am he can visit but it's a good idea to let your CO know he will be in the country. The thing is; One can only hold one class of visa at a time. My fiance' and I will have been engaged two years next month. I called and ask this very question this week. lol

My Fiance and I have just spent the better of 3 months and MANY hours going through process of preparing our PMV application. I'm an Australian citizen and she is from Japan. I really understand what you're going through as a long distance relationship is hard. (We use video skype everyday and very thankfull for it)

Regarding having your fiance or partner come live hear on a tourist visa while you are waiting... I would suggest, based on advise from our migration agent, that you be very careful here that if you're in the country and you get granted the PMV, that you don't depart on the tourist visa as this will blank out your PMV. Something about the way visa's are applied to the passport.

Exactly how it works I'm not sure, but the implications are pretty dire including invalidating the visa and if you're anything like us you are looking at around a year from the time we met to being able to be together. You don't want to risk delays or possible cancellation!!! If you're going to do this I'd HIGHLY recommend advise from a migration agent. The one we used just submitted our application yesterday and was EXTREMELY thorough and picked up on so many technicalities I didn't consider.
