Alright. Make sense.
I'd wait an eternity so I guess another 6-9 months isn't too bad.

thanks guys!

Hey guys...need some assistance please

So just an update on my situation since opening this thread...

Day before yesterday I successfully attained my PR
I started looking again at applying for a PMV and it brought up a few doubts which I'm hoping someone could clear up for me.

One of the conditions for a PMV is along with proving your relationship you also have to prove your intent to marry. That perfectly understandable however it leaves me with a bit of a dilemma...

We're obviously wanting to apply for our PMV asap however I was hoping to go on holiday in march and surprise her with the proposal then.

Is there anyway we can apply having not been engaged yet? What constitutes as proof of marriage intent given we aren't engaged yet...can we even apply just yet?

Thanks guys!

You have to be engaged as the application asks when you got engaged.

The proof of intention to get married is a notice of intended marriage from a celebrant or other official that can marry you.

Thanks Mish...

Guess the engagement won't be much of a surprise since I'll have to let her know that its a requirement for the application

You can lodge after you get engaged if you want to wait and surprise her.

Ok so just wanting some further clarification...

Being a PR now and being a long distance relationship with my partner from India for a little over two years now it seemed that going the route of a PMV was the way to go.

In which case I was going to propose to her in March and then hopefully get the PMV application out in April.

Would anyone be able to tell me if hypothetically speaking she were to fly down here next month and we were to get legally married could we then apply for a Partner visa instead the next month?

Thanks

You could but you need evidence. Getting married and applying without living together may end badly. With a spouse visa you need to fullfull 4 categories one of them being financial. With PMV you just need to have met in person and plan to marry within 9 months of the grant.

There is a huge difference in the evidence you need to supply for a partner visa vs a PMV.

Have you lived together? Do you have joint bank accounts? Joint utility bills? Joint insurance, a joint household? You need these types of things to apply for a partner visa.

If she is Indian you also have to hope she doesn't get a no further stay condition on her tourist visa prohibiting her from applying for any onshore visas.

If she can get a visa with a no further stay requirement, spend 6 months in Australia to get married and build the evidence needed then you could look at applying onshore.

Just don't underestimate the huge amount of evidence you need for a partner visa. PMV visas are pretty much designed for people in your situation
