Australian Prospective Marriage Visa

Australian Prospective Marriage visa

A Prospective Marriage visa is a temporary visa that is valid for nine (9) months. Fiancés of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens are permitted to enter Australia to marry their fiancé.

Successful applicants must marry their fiancé within the validity period and must apply for an Australian Partner Visa if they wish to remain in Australia permanently with their spouse.

To find out if the fiancé visa is the right pathway for you, book a consultation with one of our migration agents. They will assess your circumstances and provide you with personalised visa advice.
