Prospective Marriage (Fiancé) Visa – Subclass 300

 

 

The Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa (fiancé visa), is for people who want to come to Australia to marry their fiancé.

 

On 10 December 2020, the Australian government announced that anyone who held a Prospective Marriage Visa between 6 October 2020 and 10 December 2020 and was outside Australia on 10 December 2020 will have their visa entry date extended to 31 March 2022. This means that anyone whose visa was granted between 6 January 2020 and 10 December 2020 and who has not been able to travel to Australia will be able to take advantage of this concession and travel to Australia anytime until 31 March 2022.

 

 

Eligibility  For the Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa
  • You must be outside Australia to apply for the Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage Visa, and you must also be outside Australia when the visa is granted.
  • You must have met your fiancé in person, and have evidence of your relationship together.
  • Your fiancé must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or an Eligible New Zealand citizen.
  • Your fiancé in Australia, must have made arrangements for your marriage. This includes making arrangements with the relevant religious institution which will be responsible for marrying you, or a celebrant, or a registry office; plus your fiancé must have lodged a Notice Of Intention to Marry (A NOIM must be lodged at least one month and one day prior to the marriage – it is a legal requirement in Australia).
  • The marriage must be scheduled to take place during the nine months of the visa validity once it has been granted.

 

Advantages of a Prospective Marriage Visa
  • You can bring your fiancé into Australia, with fewer evidence requirements with respect to your relationship, which means that if you don’t meet the requirements for the Provisional Partner Visa, you can still apply for this visa.
  • Often, the processing periods are shorter, and the case officers look for less evidence than with the other types of Partner Visas.
  • If you have met your fiancé in person, and can only provide a little evidence, the visa will still be granted.
  • The Prospective Marriage Visa also allows you to get to know your fiancé a little better before your marriage takes place.

 

When the visa is in effect
  • The Subclass 300 prospective marriage visa is a temporary visa granted for nine months.
  • During this period you are expected to marry your fiancé and apply for a Subclass 820 Temporary Partner Visa.
  •  Provided you apply for a Subclass 820 Temporary Partner Visa before your Subclass is 300 Visa expires,  you will be granted a bridging visa to allow you to remain in Australia while your Subclass 820 Partner visa is processed.
  •  Once your Subclass 820 Partner Visa is lodged, you are entitled to Medicare, and you will continue to have full work rights.

 

In some circumstances, it is possible for a subclass 300 visa holder to apply for a subclass 820 visa without marrying their fiancé.

The folks at AHWC really took care of me and my needs. They were super professional, informative and stayed on top of my application and made sure to keep me in the loop during the entire process. If you need any help with your AUS immigration needs, don't hesitate to reach out to them. Tell them that D. sent you! It won't get you a discount, but it will make them either laugh or say, "That's awesome, Mate!"

I have had a superb experience with the team at AHWC. They first helped me to quickly submit my 820-visa in early 2020 which was approved within 5 months! I was so pleased with my experience that when it came time to submit the second part of my visa (801) this year, I contacted the team to assist me again without hesitation. This time around Charisse was helping me to submit my visa. Charisse got my visa ready to submit in no time and was amazing throughout the whole process. Her communication was great, she let me know what was required and was able to give me solutions to any problems I had – always promptly answering my questions which was extremely helpful! I will highly recommend AHWC’s service to anyone looking for help to submit their visa!

Charisse at AHWC is amazing! She helped me and my boyfriend lodge his visa and was with us every step of the way. She helped us work through all of the paperwork which can seem so daunting at first. I could not recommend her enough, especially with how efficient she is with actioning everything for us! Thank you again Charisse!

I had a very positive experience with AHWC, and I highly recommend them. My initial consultation was with Seamus, and he was very thorough with his explanations. Charisse dealt with our case, and she was very professional, polite, and friendly. She was always patient with me, and I highly appreciate her guidance and support. She constantly kept me informed and was remarkably prompt at answering all my queries, via phone and e-mail. She was such a joy to deal with, and she helped me every step of the way. Thank you, Charisse! I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout the whole process.

AHWC is very professional! Had Xiaodan (Amy) to help me apply for the partner visa, she guided and helped us through the whole process, much easier than working these out by ourselves. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend AHWC for anyone seeking assistance in their immigration visa. I (a British) wanted to apply for the partner visa as my husband is a permanent resident in Australia lives here in Australia. As part of our due diligence, we contacted several agencies including AHWC. We were impressed from the beginning with AHWC's knowledge of the process. They provided clear guidance and timely communications throughout the entire process. I would like to thank Seamus Taaffe and Chloe White at AHWC for their great services. I also worked with Chloe White again and Charisse Ongoco for the second half of my partner visa subclass 801 visa. Both of them were professional and they always answer promptly and provide a great service.

AHWC Immigration Law offers a team that is a pleasure to work with. Professional help from them has proven to speed up the long wait for visa processing as the documents you finally submit is more likely to be clear and concise. Thank you to Charisse Ongoco who offered prompt response, helpful advice, and great attention to detail.
