PMV obligations

Hi all,

If one gets granted PMV to move to Australia, can she stay as a resident in New Zealand while waiting for the second stage of her Australian visa?

Thanks very much

Do you mean she moved to Aus on PMV, get married, apply for 820, and then move to NZ?

OR

She moved to Aus on PMV, get married, go to NZ, apply for 309?

You will at least need to be in Australia at some point between your marriage and the expiration of your PMV. You have to be onshore (in Australia) in order to apply from your PMV to your 820. Keep in mind that if you are going to be out of the country between the expiration of your PMV and the grant of your 820 that you will need a Bridging Visa B. They typically only take a couple of weeks to a couple of months to grant the 820, and they won't be able to grant it until you're back in Australia. Honestly, you'd be much better off staying in Australia until after they grant your 820, if you can manage it. That way you'll have free leave to travel as much as you want on your 820 for two years, and you can then be in OR outside Australia when it's time for your 801.

One would think she would need a visa for NZ. Partners of NZ citizens can't just come and live here they need to apply for a visa.

Thanks very much for the answer.
I'm also thinking if our PMV gets rejected, then I move to New Zealand then apply for partner visa from there.

Do you think the chance of getting partner visa from applying in New Zealand is higher? the reason I'm saying partner because I noticed there is no PMV equiavelent visa from applying from New Zealand.

What do you mean "there's no equivalent of the PMV visa applying from New Zealand?" I think you're confused. You can apply for the PMV from anywhere in the world outside Australia, including from NZ.

Sorry I didnt make my self clear. I mean I had a look into visa options for New Zealand and unlke Australia they dont have Engagement Visa type for New Zealand citizens.

So, I mean if my fiance gets rejected from Australian PMV, you think if I move to New Zealand and become resident there and then she applies for partner visa to migrate to New Zealand, would have a better chance?

Thanks very much

Would she then have a better chance at an Australian visa? No, it wouldn't affect it. But why on earth would she be rejected for the PMV? Unless your relationship is not genuine or she (or dependents) would fail the health requirement or you submit fraudulent information, there's not really any reason it'd be denied, and a NZ partner visa likely requires MORE evidence than an Aussie PMV.

That would depend on NZ's immigration regulations. I doubt many people here would be familiar with them.
