Spousal Visa Questions

Hey Guys,

I am hoping for a little help, please excuse my ignorance on the topic in advance.

My partner and I have decided to get married (yay!) upon my arrival back in Mexico around June. We met in Mexico last June - I stayed there for almost 2 month months and we got to know each other. Two months later, she came to Australia for 3 months, upon her leaving we made the decision that marriage was for us.

I am wondering what the best course of action will be to arrange for her to come back with me. I will be in Mexico for roughly 7 months, whilst there I will be staying with her parents and herself.

Any advice on visa type, what I might need to support my application and general information would greatly be appreciated.

You ought to have a look at the differnt approach of PMV or partner visas via Family - Visas & Immigration , a read of Booklet #1 and eligibility and applying sections a must.

Though getting married does remove the 12 months relationship requirement, there is still a requirement to show evidence of a relationship and living with parents is going to make that difficult, a time together of at least six months also being seen as relevant.
Partner visas do not always get granted just because a couple get married and you may be better off to save getting married and apply for a PMV.

As for returning together, you may find that difficult too for it'll depend on whether you get a visa granted in time and if not whether you want to see about her getting a visitor visa and then needing to take a flight out to allow a partner visa to be granted.

Hello Mike!
Im from mexico too and my fiance lived here with me and my parents for around 6 months, I traveled to Australia and I lived with him for 3 months, we been together for almost 2 years.
You should apply for the PMV, like warren said take a look of the booklet and get as much evidence you can, we are from a High Risk country and we need to proof that relationship is geniue.
If you need help let me know!
We are in the same ship
