Prospective Marriage Visa
Prospective Marriage Visa
The prospective marriage visa is often referred to as the fiance visa. The visa allows you to work, live and study in Australia. There are also numerous other perks that the visa holder is eligible for such as receiving access to Medicare.
The Prospective Marriage Visa (also known as Fiance Visa) is for:
Applicants who are outside Australia
Applicants who intend to Marry an Australian citizen or permanent resident
Applicants who cannot meet the de facto or spousal requirement.
Please note: If you can meet the de facto or spousal requirement, you would just apply for a standard partner visa.
In order to apply for this visa you will not need to meet the de facto requirement, but you will need to show that you are in a loving and genuine relationship and intend to marry in the future.
So you will build up documentation for things like:
Past Travel Tickets
Statutory Declarations from friends and family
Complete a notice of intention to marry with marriage celebrant (set for dates 18 months in the future)
Any other relevant documents – joint bank account, transfer of funds to each other, evidence of joint residence etc…
Once granted the prospective marriage visa (fiance visa), you would then have 9 months to enter Australia and marry your fiance. Once you are married, you can then move over onto the standard partner visa (Subclass 820/801). Please note, you would need to be outside of Australia when you apply for the prospective marriage visa and when the decision is made on the application.
