Also applicants from Pakistan take a lot longer than other places. Some have been waiting 2 years. So expect a long wait.
Thanks for your reply Mish. It was just a general enquiry I was making. We are planning to lodge offshore. At the moment we r gathering as much info as we can. I knew about Pakistan being a high risk country so I realise I most probably will have to visit him as often as I can. They also say that every case is different. We will just have to keep our fingers crossed and show immigration how genuine the relationship really is.
If he had applied for visitor visa it wouldn't have been non sponsored.

My fiancé is from a high risk country and is currently here on a tourist visa, which didn't have the NFS condition attached.

We have been waiting a year for his PMV, and no clear idea of when it may be approved. If we do get married while he is here, do we reapply from scratch as a onshore partner visa, or can we change our current offshore PMV application to a partner application? And can he/will he granted a bringing visa?

Truthfully we will almost certainly end up waiting out the outcome of the PMV's security check but I just wanted to check the procedures if the wait gets too much.

Did you have to pay bond for him to get tourist visa.

You can change from a 300 to a 309, but I really, really wouldn't recommend it. PMVs are much safer for high risk countries. If you do marry and convert to a 309, suddenly the amount of evidence you need goes up. There is way more evidence necessary for a partner visa than for a PMV - evidence of shared household, evidence of shared finances, etc. etc. Also, you would very likely delay your application. You're so close to getting a grant - I really wouldn't jump the gun here and make your application process more difficult.

And no, you can't convert from a 300 to an 820 (onshore). You would have to cancel your PMV application entirely, completely lose your application fee, and apply and pay again for an 820 (which is even more expensive than the PMV was originally). Then your processing time would start over, and you'd be waiting an average of 13 months for a visa grant, and actually probably longer because (again) you'd have to go through external security checks which add processing time for high-risk countries.

Whereas, if you keep your PMV and marry once you've gotten it, you'll actually have your 820 much sooner (processing time for an 820 from a PMV is usually just a couple of months or less).

No bond, but he's my fiancé so I couldn't sponsor him anyway.

Since I have been looking at visas which has been almost 2 years. I was never able to do a family sponsored visa for my fiance. It is because he was not family yet.

You may be getting confused between a tourist visa and family sponsored tourist visa.
