Hi Aussieboy, suggest you search for a past thread started by medoes where she shared an outline of her 820 submission. It was quite comprehensive. If you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help ... if I know the answer, that is.

Merry Christmas to you and to your fiancee.

Aussieboy - it's basically the same process as before. Fill out the forms, include some recent Forms 888 (at least two from citizens or PR), provide evidence of your marriage (wedding pics, certificate [not the decorative one the celebrant issues you, but the official government one}, and that's pretty much it. No new medicals or police checks unless they ask for them, which isn't likely.

Hi college girl. You're the only one I can think of right now who might can answer my queries. Please bear with me. thank you in advance for addressing my queries. Firstly, is there a difference between Provisional visa from Temporary Visa? Secondly, our marriage under cs 300 is planned to be made this January 2014, is it possible we can apply immediately for sc 820/801? Third, my police clearance which I used in sc 300 application will expire in the mid of february, would it likely that the immig will ask a new police check? Lastly, where can i inquire about the free English Language Learning for emigrant like me?

Hi Mrs. Woody. Yes, there is a difference between a temporary visa and a provisional one. A temporary visa allows you to stay in the country for a set period of time and then you have to leave. A provisional visa like the PMV allows you to enter the country on your provisional visa, but then directly (eventually) leads to permanent residency if all conditions of the visa continue to be met.

You can apply ASAP after your wedding ceremony, but keep in mind you'll have to apply for a copy of your government-issued wedding certificate (NOT the decorative one your celebrant will give you) and I believe that takes a month or so (not sure). During that month, though, that will give you time to also gather evidence of your combined household and financial lives, if you don't already have enough of that.

It's possible but not likely that they will ask for a new police check. Generally they don't for PMV-to-820 applications.

I don't have the answer to your last question, sorry.

Hi Mrs Woody
Given your written ability demonstrated here I doubt that the free English lessons will be of much good to you but to answer your question. Go to page 39 http://www.immi.gov.au/living-in-aus...glish_full.pdf

though for quick reference
If your English is less than ‘functional’, you may be entitled to free English language lessons
under the Adult Migrant English Programme (AMEP).
On arrival, contact the Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s inquiry line, for more information about
your eligibility and local AMEP service provider. Please note that if eligible, you must register for English
classes within three months of being granted permanent residence if you are onshore, or within three months
of arrival if you are offshore.
Contact details:
Telephone: 131 881
Online: Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP).
Other Australian Government English language tuition programmes
There are three other Australian Government English language tuition programmes, all administered by the
Department of Education, Science and Training.

I'm grateful to your responses Collegegirl and Aussieboy. @ Aussieboy, will certainly have a look to the link that you have provided.

To Collegegirl, the primary reason I asked about the difference between provisional and temporary is that I have an eight year old son that we wish to get into school this February in a public school. The administration fee is too dear. However, I have read the DEC International : Temporary Residents Program - DEC International, it is indicated there that a temporary resident will be exempted to pay the administration fee if he is related ( son or step son) to an Australian citizen and/or Permanent resident. I'm crossing my finger that our marriage certificate after our wedding this January (under Visa sc 300) will be accepted as proof of his link to my husband-to-be while we prepare to lodge the Visa 820/801.
