From eVisitor to Partner visa 820.

Hello everyone,

I hope someone could help with our situation and maybe shed some light.
My girlfriend and I met last year online. I'm in Australia and she is back in Poland.(Funnily enough we were both born in the same country and state. Our family homes are only 10km away from each other as it turned out. Talking about serendipity, hey?) From the first skype chat, we both knew we were meant for each other. I hold an Australian passport and my partner holds a Polish passport with an eVisitor for business purposes visa valid for another 6 months. Last year she came and stayed with me for 2 weeks. After that I went back home to stay with her for 5 weeks and met her family and friends. My question is, instead of wasting time and mony applying for a FiancÚ visa; can we apply for partner visa subclass 820 if she comes back to Australia and stays with me for 3 months (eVisitor maximum stay in AU) during which we would get married and apply for visa 820 as a married couple?

We really appreciate any help or tips you can provide us with.

Technically yes you can. However it would require you to put together a lot of evidence to support your relationship which may be difficult. Often people will apply instead for the PMV since it doesn't require the same amount or level of evidence, and then apply for the partner visa after.

This thread gives a good summary of the differences of the partner visas if that's of any help.....

It is actually cheaper to go for PMV+820, instead of just 820.

PMV+820 = $3085 + $1145 = $4230
820 only = $4575

The processing time varies depend on where you apply your PMV from.
