PMV Bali to Australia plus traditional wedding in Bali

Hi,

My partner and I are in the process of preparing to apply for the prospective Marriage VISA. He is from Bali and I'm From Perth. Our wedding will be in Bali.....

Just wanting to find out other Australians who have traditionally married a Balinese in a Balinese ceremony and who have applied for this VISA.
Do we need to fill out the Notice of Intended Marriage Form and have it signed by the person who will conduct our wedding? I can only find form 13 which is an AUSTRALIAN form? Is there an equivalent one for traditional Balinese marriages?
Also we are aiming to hand in our application in Dec/ Jan 15 , when would you recommend he have his medical and police clearance done? And when should we have our documents signed and dated by a notary?? I'm wanting to get everything organized soon but don't want them done to early as we aren't applying for about 4 - 5 months time....

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Hi Evie
You can't get married and the apply for a PMV.
You fiance MUST come to Australia and get married here, that is why the form of Notice of intention to marry is an Australian form.

From what I've read you can get married anywhere as long as you've come to Australia once the PMV has been granted. After that you can get married anywhere. Right?

Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300)

Yes, Hyperion is correct. You can marry anywhere - but you must enter Australia on your visa before you marry, then fly back out later to get married if you want to marry out of the country.

You won't need a NOIM, by the way - just a letter from the celebrant, if you're not getting married in Australia. It will need to detail your names, the date of your wedding. etc. You can undertake the medicals/police checks either before or after filing - it makes no difference. I wouldn't do it TOO early, though. Medicals and police checks are good for one year, and your "initial entry date" -- date by which you must enter Aus after the visa is granted -- is based on the expiration of medicals or police checks, whichever is first. So if they take nine months, you'll have about three to enter the country. Also, if they take nine months, and you got your medical/police checks done three months early, there's a chance they'd make you do them again. I'm not positive as to what wait times are through the Bali embassy right now, but most places it's 8-9 months.

Hope that helps you figure it out.

Thank you for your help everyone...

Yes I do know that we can get married anywhere after the VISA has been approved that is why we decided on a Bali traditonal wedding

Thank you @CollegeGirl for your help regarding the NOIM and a guideline for the medicals and police clearance! Would you recommend having them done before the filing ( So you hand them in with your application ) so it may be quicker in the process time? Or do it not make a difference either way? Is it OK to wait to be asked to show a medical and Police clearance?
Do you know much about having our documents signed and witnessed by a notary? How early before filing should we do this?

Thankyou all again

It generally doesn't make a difference in processing time these days. There's a small chance it could make your visa go through faster, but there's definitely no guarantee. I guess it just depends which way you want to gamble, heh. It's perfectly fine to wait until they ask for it, if you want to.

If you apply online (which I highly recommend) you don't need to get things certified. The only things you need certified would be the Forms 888 from your witnesses and copies of their government-issued ID.

It doesn't really matter how early you get those done if you're applying offshore, but I wouldn't do it TOO early as you don't want them to be too out-of-date.

If you are applying in Bali you usually have to wait until you get HAP ID to get medical done at BIMC hospital. You will get this from immi about a week after you lodge application. I have heard of 1 or 2 people being able to do medical without it but I know when I lived in Bali last year they wouldn't let my partner make an appointment for his medical without the HAP ID that you get after you lodge. The Police check can take a while to get so you could start this process about a month before you want to apply.

Just be careful with this - you can't get married anywhere simply AFTER the visa has been approved, your Balinese partner needs to come to Australia FIRST to activate his visa, then both of you can fly back to Bali and have your wedding there.

Even if he only spends a day at Perth airport then gets on the next flight back to Bali, that's enough to satisfy the requirements. He has to at least enter Australia once on his PMV before you get married. That's the rule.
