to be honest first up would have to recommend not going ahead with the court marriage as you would have virtually no chance of a 309/100 visa approval and it would eliminate what may be the best visa option for you.
a tourist visa would be the way to go, the 2 main things you will need to prove are funds for the trip and intent to return.

Do you live in Egypt? The chances of an Egyptian male gwtting a tourist visa are very slim, even moreso because you have an Australian partner.

I would not recommend getting married legally unless your partner can spend atleast 3 months with you to gather evidence. The Cairo embassy is very strict on partner visas even moreso a spouse visa.

Is your partner Muslim and did simeone come with her when you met her?

Prospective marriage visa (subclass 300) is the best route to go.

When my husband applied for his PMV we werw advised not to get married unless you can live together for atleast 3 months after marriage. This is due to the amoint of evisence that is required for a 309/100 and fhat the Australian Embassy in Cairo is very strict. The PMV has alot less requirements (have met in person amd marry within 9 months of arrival.in Australia).

Have you talked to her parents and do you have her parents (most importantly her father's) permission to marry. This is something thay the embassy will look at because she is Muslim and to marry you should have the permission - a friend of mine who is Muslim her father wrote a statement to show thst he supported the marriage. They applied for a PMV as well amd married in Australia.

The embassy will probably imterview you as well and ask alot of questions to help them make sure the relationship is genuine.

What is your occupation? Depending on your occupation you may be able to apply for a akilled visa which would be alot easier.

Thank you for replying !
i see that PMV is less hassle ,but will i be paying again when applying for marriage visa in Aus ? i read it says will be reduced fees but how much ?
my wife is a revert , her dad isn't in the picture since she was a kid .her mom is in touch but not Muslim Either , and she approved our marriage ,but not in a written way ,and she would like to write an invitation letter for me to visit them .
I'm a Dentist by profession , but it's actually way more hassle to go thru the skilled visa thing .

The reduced fee is about $1145 from memory.

The thing you need to look at is it not just about cost it is about if the visa will be approved.

Question for you: do you have a joint bank account? Do you send her money in Australia to support her? Do you have joint bills?

Those are just some of the things they will be looking at.

If you want to work as a dentist in Australia you would need to get your qualification validated anyway. Also you would get PR straight up.

Partner visas are also alot of work with alot of evidence. If you search the forum you will see the evidence that people provide.

One of the migration agents on this forum (CCMS) actually recommends the PMV for people lodging at the Cairo embassy due to how strict they are.

To have a success 309 visa your wife would need to live with you in Egypt for a couple of months prior to lodging the application and you need to gather enough evidence.

At the moment 5 weeks is not a long time - we had more than that and did a PMV.

Thank you Mish.
well ,i do agree with you ,cost isn't every thing,but yeah ,doesnt seem to be too much more money in the sake of less hassle and evidence.
- regarding the joint account , we didn't have one in Egypt , not sure if it's allowed in Egyptian banks, i'll have to check , but she added me to her bank , yet i still need to go to australia first and activate it .
we didnt have joint bills ,since we didnt stay much together , also i didnt send her money yet..but are those required for PMV as well as Partner visa ?
so i guess we are willing to try the visitor visa first - as she prefer- , and if it didn't work , we will most probably start the PMV .
any advice for both ?

Hi
I want to advise you, first you must know that Australia partner visa very difficult and very expensive, whatever, stop to think about partner visa now, first you need to make marriage certificate at court, and start to live with your wife since this time, try to live 5 or 6 months then you can make a good evidence, there are 5 criteria for partner visa, don't underestimate them.
Read more and more and start to collect the evidence every day.
