Hi all
I am new here i have my fiancee and her son in Phillipines we are applying for a prospective marriage visa 300 using an agent to look after this for us, he has informed us we can apply for a tourist visa once we have submitted our 300 visa application and says we should have that in 2-4 weeks so we can be together in Australia while we are waiting for our visa approval.
I was just wondering if anyone else has used this method to get your partner here sooner?

Cheers
Jason

I know of others who have done this successfully. There is a migration agent that provides advice on this web site for free. He also has a checking service of your documents for under $500 if you want to do the leg work and fill in the forms and gather other documents. His name is Mark Northham and he has the respect of many senior members here. watch those migration agent fees, I have heard some nightmares

Hi thanks for reply we have an agent working for us already we done a fair bit of research for prices of lots of visa agents and yes there are some really expensive ones around this price seems reasonable and he has a lot of experience with the fillipino and Australian visas, it was just going to be too much work and frustration for me to do it so we got an agent to handle the whole process for us.

cheers
Jason

Hi All I thought I would share how my partner and I are going with the PMV.

On the 26th Nov my agent sent the docs to Manila. We didn't hear anything from the agent till 13th Feb stating that the embassy is starting to process the application, and to get the medicals done. So we got her medicals completed over two days in Cebu. Then I came back to Aus and and decided to contact the embassy is regards to the acknowledgment letter. Once I received the letter I noticed that the embassy had sent it to my agent on the 14th Jan. That's one month before the agent contacted me

On the 7th Jun I received a reply from an enquiry that I had sent the embassy.


Our records indicate that your application is now in its final stage. We no
longer require any additional requirements from your end. Once the
decision has been finalised, it will be communicated to you immediately.

******
How long do you guys think till it's approved?

I recieved a call from my CO today regarding my visa enquiry and those were also the exact words she told me.. That they no longer require any additional docs from me and should a decision be made they will be communicated immediately.. Lodged my PMV 309 19-Feb..

Hope it's soon.. Can't wait to start life with my hubby..

Just FYI a 309 is not a PMV (prospective marriage visa). The 309 is just the offshore partner visa. Doesn't really matter, as we all know what you're talking about... just clarifying for future readers to avoid confusion...

All we can do is pray and wait... I'm hoping that by the end of this month it will be finalised. But if it's not than that is fine too. BUT.... I WISH IT WOULD BE.
