Australian Prospective Marriage – Fiancee Visas Issued between 1 July 2001 and 30 June 2011.
The Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa (Prospective Marriage visa) is a temporary, nine-month visa which enables the visa holder to travel to Australia to marry an intended spouse.
After marrying the intended spouse, a Prospective Marriage visa holder is expected to apply for permanent residence in Australia through a two-stage Partner visa process: first, the temporary Partner (subclass 820) visa; and, second, the permanent Partner (subclass 801) visa.
If a Prospective Marriage visa holder does not marry the intended spouse, the visa expires after nine months and, unless an application is made for another type of visa, the visa holder would be required to return to their country of origin.
