U applied bfr you got married. So was it a PMV that u applied for ? If yes, Did u request a change to 309?

Living apart temporary for work reasons or study reasons or for reasons of.waiting for your visa isnt a problem. A decision to live apart permanently is a problem. Thats why in the forms they seek to find out if u intended to live with your partner

When applying for a subclass 309 partner visa, without being married, they normally like to see a 12 month defacto type relationship, before the application date.

Without knowing more, it is hard to tell what problems you might have, but from what you have said, I would be concerned.

It all comes down to how you have proven that yours is a genuine relationship, for a reasonable length of time.

"Usually your de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before you apply for the visa. Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship."

Thanks for your replies...

We got engaged in March before we applied. We both have an Indian background and our relationship started out as one that was arranged by family, but that changed fairly quickly.

We applied straight for the 309 because we were engaged already, so we were eligible to do so.

We've attached as much evidence as we have, including the detailed wedding planning docs, our correspondences with each other, anything we have, really. Not sure if this helps?

You don't even need to be engaged to apply for the 309, just have sufficient evidence of the relationship, for the period required.

As I said, we started off in an arranged situation (it's just how it works in our families)... these things typically happen quite quickly, so we didn't have a relationship history of 12 months or more. It was the engagement that made us eligible for this visa.

I'm sure plenty of other people have applied who have been in an arranged/semi-arranged relationship?

Um, engagement makes you eligible for the PMV, but not necessarily the 309 visa. For the 309, you either have to have been in a relationship for at least 12 months, or have registered the relationship to waive the 12 month requirement (registered with the state/government) or you have to be married to waive the 12 month requirement. Any one of these options needs to be at "time of lodgement," not lodge the 309 visa application and then get married. If you lodged the PMV while you were engaged, then you got married before the grant of the PMV, you can switch over to the 309 (usually). However, if you applied for the 309 thinking being engaged was enough, you may want to have a closer look at the requirements to make sure you met them at the time of lodgement. Perhaps I'm wrong, and someone more knowledgeable will correct me. But I'm pretty sure that's how it works.

The Application had three options for relationship status: De Facto, Engaged or Married. According to my research, discussions with people I know and a migration agent my family consulted, you can apply for the 309 if you are engaged but need to get married within a specified timeframe after lodging the application. So we applied in late May for the 309, before the wedding in early July. We got married in New Zealand, not in Australia.
