Partner Visa Subclass 300

Subclass 300 Prospective Marriage visa.

The subclass 300 visa is often called a Fiance/Fiancee Visa, and is actually called a Prospective Marriage Visa [PMV].

It is an initial Temporary visa in the Permanent Residency process for the fiance of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen to be able to live in Australia, with their partner, after they marry.

It is issued to applicants who are OUTSIDE Australia at the time of Application, and not yet married to their partner.

Some people, while waiting for a subclass 300 visa, decide to get married earlier. If you do, then you should visit this page: Getting Married before PMV 300 Visa is Granted

Once the subclass 300 visa is granted you are able to enter Australia, get married, and then make an application for the Onshore Partner visa (subclass 820).

People on the subclass 300 visa often get the 820 visa processed faster than those who go directly to the 820, as they have already been processed for most requirements on the 300 application.

With this visa you can

  • stay in Australia for 9 months from date of grant of visa
  • work in Australia
  • study in Australia at your own expense

You must

  • be 18 years old or older
  • be sponsored
  • intend to marry your prospective spouse before the visa period ends

You are NOT eligible for Medicare, until the subclass 820 application has been submitted.
