Great news. My fiance had her Visa Grant Notice for her Tourist Visa/Subclass 600 arrive by courier today. It has been granted for a 3 month period, and no condition 8503 - No further stay. Yay!!!!!!

I booked her flight ticket this afternoon and she will be in Perth on Tuesday evening

The question now is, she lodged an offshore PMV in Cebu March . Now, what if we decide to get married in Perth wihtin the next few months. From what I believe, we can change the visa from a PMV to a Partner/Spouse Visa and apply for a bridging visa for her to stay here until that is granted. As there is no condition 8503 on her tourist visa immigration can't ask her to leave, can they?

We've had a good run with DIAC so far, we'll forget about this visa business for a few weeks now, relax, go out, site seeing etc and then go to immigration in Perth and ask what our options are.

where to pay visa fee

Hi J
If you pay here in Australia by credit card they email you the receipt which you can forward to your partner in PH. Because it is on email you can print it off as many times as you like. When you lodge your application you lodge the receipt at the same time.
There is no preference to pay in Manila and the immigration office say it is a safer way of paying if you do it in Australia. Also on the off chance that if you split with your partner (not that you will) prior to lodging the application you can have the fee returned to your credit card. I know someone who had this happen.

Is it just me or does there seem to be less PMV and spouse approvals, in November/December every week I would see a couple of people approved now it is just the odd one here and there. Well Monday for me will be 8 months of waiting, I have resigned my self to the fact that they are going to make me wait the whole 9 months. So if waiting to give birth is as painful as waiting for a visa, ladies I feel sorry for you.

....yet there are PMV's approved within 3 months......having spoken to the Embassy in Manila on Tuesday they confirmed they are already looking at my fiance's visa which was lodged on the 19th of March. They are waiting for her medical which will be done Friday 26 April.
