Newbie Question. PMV - Russia - Australia

Hi, been looking around and just would love some advice and understanding on my situation.

PMV what timeline would be considered in favor for immigration for spending time together before applying.

The Reason is , its getting expensive, and we talk everyday , we know how long the PMV process can take, we both are in love, dragging it out its hard and want to make sure enough time it sought before applying, even tho if approved she can live here for some time before marriage so why delay it.

We have been speaking online in since April, spent a few weeks together in June in another country, She got a visa approved for 3 month tourist visa here and spent 3 weeks here and met family and friends.

I'm planing on going over to russia early next year to spend a few weeks meeting her friends and family. We talk all the time and thinking if all goes well over there asking her to marry me, so we can start the pmv visa long process and hopefully have another visit added in between this process.

Is this too soon for a PMV?

I was thinking of doing it after another visit so it will be over a year since communicating and may look better for immigration. But the dragging out process is starting to get hard it that will only add many many more months onto of it before we even start the PMV.

Thoughts anyone?
Am I over reacting ?
I worry too much..

Thanks for any advice

I think you should be fine for a PMV, you have met in person and as long as you keep a good record of your contacts, chat logs, photos etc you should be right.

As aussiesteve said the only requirement is that you have met in person and you have met that requirement.

My husband (then fiance) applied after we knew each after just under 7 months (we didn't meet online we met in person). As long as you have photos, contact evidence, hotel bookings, tickets etc you should be fine.

DIBP do not consider any evidence until you met in person but that doesn't mean that you can't provide it.

thanks everyone, yeah have many photos, logs, hotel bookings ( but just under my name ) airfare tickets with both names on which is good.

Keeping as much info as possible, which is what we did just to get a tourist visa for her to come here, which was approved very fast less than a week, through a stack of photos and logs to get that over the line..

How much saving history do i need for a PMV.

I just purchased a house so my savings have been sucked up some what now, so trying to save as much as i can to prove i can support her...

Is there amount of savings they require to look at for this visa?

Thanks for help everyone

I am of the theory it is better to provide too much evidence than not enough. I was go with the theory of .... if you were rejected can you say you were happy with what you supplied? If that answer is no than provide the other items.

There is no requirement to show financial support for a PMV but it helps.

Also you don't have to have a specific amount of savings for the visa. The visa is about the relationship being genuine.

Also when the time comes ... apply online it is way easier than paper as you can additional evidence throughout the process.

Congrats on the house purchase.
