Unhappy Please help!

Hi,

My partner has recently arrived (couple of months ago) on a prospective marriage visa.

With this visa you only have 9 months to get married.

I was wondering is there any other way we can get him on another visa to give us longer than this 9 months - I mean if we can't get married within this 9 month period?

Your help on this matter is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

hi!
this visa subclass 300 entitles your fiance to wait until 9 months and re enter if necessary within that period of time.

it is your personal issue of not wanting to marry now, but wouldnt it be better to atleast register and then apply for partner visa as soon as possible? it maybe financial reasons or other reasons best known tou you both but atleast as a desperation measure.

another option would be for your fiance to find a job that would sponsor him. which is ofcourse not all that easy!

i am not sure what other means are there but lets see whether any others have good suggessions for you..

all the best!

Unfortunately, it is not just getting married in nine months that you need to do but also allowing time to have an onshore partner visa applied for as well and yep it does make it something of a quick planning exercise.

And once a visa is applied for and granted, that's it and no changes in the case of this one.

Another option as sr786 indicates is finding an employer sponsor if he and employer are eligible re sponsorship.
But then he would initially be reliant on maintaining employment with a sponsor to remain here until you were married and then you could apply for an onshore spouse visa.

But if you do plan on following another approach, you ought to contact Immi to discuss it with them.

There is for instance tourist visas that you can apply onshore for but then there'll likely be a No Further Stay condition on the visa, so no applying for a spouse visa after marriage and he would need to go abroad to apply offshore or get an ETA if eligible to return and apply but always the risk of being refused entry because it is intended to use the ETA for more than a visit!

There is also the possibility of registering a relationship to apply for a partner visa before marriage - see info posted for tabby.
http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...art-count.html

But all those options do mean a breach of the PMV300 conditions and so as not to get on the wrong side with Immi, it will be best to at least advise them of the desire so there is not a black mark put down alongside the visa conditions being breached.
