Smile Second Stage Partner Visa Question

Hello!

We applied for a prospective marriage visa last year.. visa was granted last month he is here now. Just wondering that after we get married and apply for the temporary visa and it gets granted... is my partner able to go in and out of the country within the two years until permanent residency is granted? (i.e to go back home visit family etc) Or do you have to stay put in Australia for 2 years?

Thanks heaps!!

AFAIK, your partner will have complete freedom of travel and just recently there has been new legislation introduced so as an onshore partner visa applicant can even have the second stage partner visa granted offshore.
With a PMV, you can also even get married offshore if you want to.

Partner Visa Booklet 1 says:
Quote:
The partner category visa that you are granted will have a multiple re-entry facility, which means that you can leave, and return to, Australia as many times as you wish within a specified period.
• A Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) allows you to travel for 9 months from date of visa grant.
• A temporary Partner visa (subclasses 309 and 820) allows you to travel until a decision is made on your permanent Partner visa.
• A permanent Partner visa (subclasses 100 and 801) allows you to travel for up to 5 years from date of grant.
I'd suggest taking a look at it if you haven't already

If you want to travel and it's been more than 5 years since you got the permanent visa, you have to apply for a resident return visa (subclass 155), which gives you another 5 years.
