I think OP need to find a way to gather some more convincing evidences for 309.
What I meant was he should not have gotten married! He should have waited and applied for a pmv.

Nothing he can do now.

So does it mean that even if I am married, i cannot bring my wife in any visa other than family visitor visa, unless I have lived with her long enough?

Depends on the embassy but alot of high risk embassy's will reject you if you do not have a life like husband and wife. They may find it strange that you have not gone to visit her.

Being married does not give the person the right to be able to bring their spouse to Australia to live permanently. They firstly need to show DIBP that the relationship is genuine and ongoing.

As Mish have said, you need to satisfied the requirements set by DIBP in order to be granted a partner visa.

I actually think that DIBP should make it easier for couple in this kind of situation. Not everyone have the full knowledge of how PMV and the partner visa work. Often it is too late to go for PMV when they realize they are unable to fulfill the requirements of a partner visa.

I don't think it should necessarily be easier for couples who have only spent a total of 27 days with each other EVER and have no stated plans to live together or insurmountable reasons for being apart to get a visa that leads to permanent residency... I mean, c'mon.

I'm not trying to say the requirements should be lower for those in this situation. But maybe if you only just get married, let say less than 6 months, you still be able to apply for a PMV. By no means, the requirements should be lower for a partner visa.

Also, the way a 309 works is not 'you get two years to see if it works out'. You get this visa because you are committed to each other, and not just in the sense that you have a marriage certificate.

If you can, bring her back on a tourist visa and try to gather more evidence. Keep up contact while you are apart, and find evidence of you planning a life together. Open bank accounts, introduce her to your friends, name her in your will. If you work towards having a married life together you will find enough evidence.

As your CO raised the point that you haven't traveled outside Australia and you guys never lived together for long, I suggest you to try to go to your partner's place , stay there, try to build the evidences which suggests you guys are sincere toward your relation and its genuine and continuing.
