Partner Visa Subclass 300 Processing times


Sponsor ai2

Processing times for the PMV Subclass 300 Visa.

The PMV Subclass 300 Visa is the Prospective Marriage Visa, for those couples who do not have sufficient relationship evidence to apply for a standard Partner visa, the 820/801 or 309/100 options.

After the PMV is granted, and after the subsequent marriage, they can then apply for the Onshore 820 Partner Visa, for a smaller additional charge.

Subclass 300 Processing Times in months.

The figures quoted under the heading “range” are the 75% and 90% processing times, where 75% are finalised under the the first number and 10% are finalised in the second number or longer.

For example, in December 2020, the times quoted were 19-24. This meant that 75% were done in under 19 months and 90% were finalised in under 24 months. This left 10% taking over 24 months in that period.

Included in that 75% that took under 19 months, half of the total of grants and refusals were finalised in under 14.6 months, with the fastest 25% being finalised in under 6 months.
