Thank you for your advice. I understand the different between PMV 300 and Partner Visa 820 . I just wonder if it is a must to have a celebrant for the NOIM as someone told me that we could just register our NOIM with the authorized office. Our intention is doing the PMV 300 and then when i am granted the visa I will get married in Australia and convert into Partner visa 820. Thats why I posted the question in another topic asking how much we will have to pay. We had a wedding celeration here in VN as it was the request from our familiess since we both dated each other and told the families that we wanted to settle down. In the Stat Dec for PMV 300, my partner wrote about the wedding recpetion that we had but I am not sure that should we include in our Stat Dec. i explained to him that PMV 300 purpose is let me go to Australia and get married so it is unnecessary to mention about the wedding cermony.
Hi Queenie: the purpose of a PMV visa is to allow you to come to Australia to marry your partner. You cannot be married outside Australia or the visa will be refused. Your partner's Stat dec needs to state the relationship and intention to marry in Australia however this is only needed in a letter of relationship
Any form 888 should not mention anything about the ceremony in VN.
1. you apply PMV
Evidence is needed to show the relationship and you have met in person and your intention to marry
I would suspect you have photos on facebook - if you do you should remove them if they show the wedding
2. You are granted
3. you come to Australia and marry
4.you apply for SC 820 / 801 Partner visa in Australia
