If you are uncertain, don’t worry, this question is often asked by the couples we work with; you have lodged the application, the Prospective Marriage Visa has been granted and you wonder what steps you need to take next on your Partner Visa journey.
From the time the visa is granted, you have a period of nine months in which to get legally married in Australia to your Australian partner, so you have lots of time to plan that perfect wedding… Actually, depending on the level of bridezilla… You’ll need to tame the bridezilla so this wedding can be organised & enjoyed before the Prospective marriage visa expires.
One tip for organising a wedding in Australia, as soon as you say the “W-Word” (Wedding) the price goes up, so be aware 🙂
Once you are married, it’s back to the boring visa stuff I’m afraid. You then need to look at preparing and collecting the information you will need for your Subclass 820 Visa application.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to pay the crazy $7k Visa application charge again, subsidized application fees for the Subclass 820 Visa application apply if you are already a Prospective Marriage Visa holder.

I was born in Changsha (China), lived in Wuhan (China), and moved to Singapore when I was 8. So I speak Mandarin and Singlish. I might also speak a bit of Cat. I studied law and now specialise in migration law.
