I am indonesian our first plan was to have our wedding here in indonesia but the circumstances do not allow it to happen my fiance is really busy with his job at the moment so he can't get leave in the near future and the religious affairs office here seems like make our wedding a business land for them by asking a VERY high registration fee (we dont want to pay any bribes). i have a few questions to ask.
1. is it possible for me to get married in australia with a tourist visa and then apply for another visa (onshore partner visa) once our marriage registered?
2. if i cant be married in australia with a tourist visa, is there any chance to make the process of the partner visa application quicker (as our wedding will be on the second week of july this year and my fiance has already choose a celebrant and his family is starting to organise the wedding)?
3. to apply a partner visa is there any certain of minimum amount do i have to have in my account? if yes, how much?
4.i am not working at the moment i already resign from my job since we decided to get married to be concentrate to my study and organising the wedding. is it still possible for me to apply a partner visa?
5. i've heard about NFS thing on a tourist visa,, IF i apply for a tourist visa wich valid for 6mts will i get the visa with NFS on it??
Any advise will be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Hi there,

You need to apply for a prospective marriage visa (fiance visa) from Indonesia. This will allow you to get to Australia, where you will have to get married within 9 months. Then, you can apply for a spouse visa onshore.

You need to get a certificate from your country to show that you are free to marry, and so will the sponsor. Also, you need to show that you have arranged for the wedding date, or at least to have the marriage registerd at an office in Australia.

Look on the DIAC site for more details, or search this forum for more information.

Hi there,

I'm Indonesian too,seem like u have a similar case with me, we going to get married in Australia so i took prospective marriage visa sub class 300, u can read everything about it on the migrations booklet, now finally my visa on final stage queue and the case officer let me go to Australia on tourist visa to get married coz the wedding date way too close. so she suggest me to send her the married certificate once done and she will convert my application from fiance to partner visa 309 and i have to return from australia by the time my partner visa is granted.

hope this help and good luck.

Hi Mark,

There is a sticky thread at the top of the visas forum about how to present the partner visa. If you follow the tips, you should end up with an easy to follow, solid application.

I further recommend that you write on the documents what they are and what they prove if it's not already obvious. My husband's CO asked for clarficiation on a number of our documents and made her own notes to make it easier for her to understand later.
