Are you elligible for AMEP free english classes on a PMV subclass 300 visa?

Can anyone tell me if you are elligible to start the free english classes on a subclass 300 visa?
I had a look on the AMEP website and it is not very clear, it says:

Partner (temporary) (class UK)
Partner (Provisional) (Class UF)

The PMV comes under the partner visa category i believe, but the website doesn't mention subclasses and im not sure about the Class UK and class UF... I haven't heard that referred to before.

Does anyone know if you can start the classes whilst on a Partner visa subclass 300 PMV? Has anyone done it while on PMV?

Thanks for your help

I believe some people have done it on a PMV but I am not 100% sure, it could have been the 309.

Ring up the AMEP number that is local to you and they will be able to tell you. They have a link to DIBP database so they will do a check on your fiance's visa and tell you if he is eligible. Then he will have to go and do a test and they will tell him what level he is.

Just be aware he probably won't start until end of January or February as I believe they don't do a summer term.

In the mean time you can go to the library and get him some kiddie reading books.

Thanks for that Mish!

We will call them on Monday then, even if he can't start yet it will be good to know if he is elligible. Thanks for the info

When do you get married? He may even have his 820 by the time they start anyway. The 820 generally does not take more than a couple of months to approve but there have been a few of late waiting around 4 months. Not sure if this is a new trend or not....

From what I know, you are not eligible until you get 820 or 309. Even applicants on BVA waiting for 820 are not eligible.

That would make sense since they are done through TAFE and TAFE is international rates for PMV.

I just looked up the person I remember that did them and they were 309 not 300 like I thought.

When do you get married?

It may not matter anyway as in they will be finishing up the term now and then on to Summer break so wouldn't have been able to start until late January/early February anyway.

Did they say once you are married or once you have applied for the 820?

That is why I was asking because she was told he can do if after they are married which is not correct. It does show you thought how careful the operators need to be with their words.
