Sarah, if you re-read the message stream it does indeed look as though you believed the the fiances should be living together straight away on arrival in Australia -- (as I was definately not referring to husband/wife situation)
"if you are not living with your partner it really has to be because you CANNOT because of strict cultural/legal reasons"
and
"when there are no cultural/legal reasons and they are not living together this can seriously go against them for the visa.I'm just saying that you really do need to have a compelling reason, or else you will weaken your application, that's obvious"

This is simply untrue in the case of fiances on PMVs.

I'm not getting angry, but I do think you were implying the wrong information in this case. I've read all of the DIAC regulations relating to PMV 1,000 times and nowhere does it say anything about how fiances on PMVs must live together, before marriage, unless there are compelling reasons. The PMV approval letter we are given is very long & very detailed & very clear on ALL of the conditions & expectations that must be fulfilled while on the PMV -- and living together before marriage is NOT one of them. There is NO expectation on the part of DIAC. After marriage, yes of course, as you are then in a husband/wife relationship, but you do not have to before.

You need be really clear on this in future, please. ie before marriage, no, after marriage, yes.

We still have to provide "nature of household" evidence when applying for PMV & afterwards the spouse, & yes its difficult, but DIAC is understanding of the situation -- and they do mention this also in their material. We just have to do the best we can under the circumstances, and DIAC is free to follow anything up after application & to request more evidence on this once the marriage is finalised & you are living together.

I never said that it was a requirement of the visa. I just gave my opinion, which I will happily stop doing Personally I don't like to paint the DIAC as all-understanding, I think it's better to focus on having the strongest application possible. All the best with your visa

HI guys, i know this thread is getting a bit old but I wonder if someone call tell me if the documents my fiance filed for her PMV in Manila are still available to be used for her partner visa. The reason I ask is that IMMI in Manila declined to return the original documents - so can IMMI in Oz access those original docs etc?

cheers

You should have kept a copy of all those documents to reuse!

SarahM, I love your approach and totally agree with it. My PMV will most likely be granted next week but I have already started putting together relationship evidence for the partner visa, my fiance and I are in the process of opening joint savings accounts both in aussie and in Kenya, and since I got back all the relationship evidence which I had submitted with the PMV application, I am just adding more on to it daily. We both live in Germany now and we are planning to have our wedding in Sydney in November, and that will probably be the month that our 9 months will be up, nevertheless, I think we will have sufficient evidence by then.

Hi Shky

The medicals and police checks are valid for a year , so you may have to do them again if it has been a year since they were done. But you need to check with your CO as they are handling your application.
