Prospective Marriage Visa Subclass 300
What is a Prospective Marriage Visa?
The Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300), also known as the TO-300 visa, is intended for people seeking to enter Australia for the purpose of marrying their prospective spouse (an Australian Citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen) after they arrive, and remain in Australia permanently after the marriage.
This visa enables the holder to enter and remain in the country for nine months. After marrying their prospective spouse, the TO-300 visa holder can apply for a UK-820/BS-801 Partner visa which, if granted, will allow them to stay in Australia permanently.
A person cannot be granted a further TO-300 visa, even where the wedding ceremony is delayed past the visa expiry date.
There are a number of eligibility requirements that need to be satisfied for this visa to be granted, including but not limited to:
- Both the visa applicant and the sponsor must be at least 18 years old at the time of the visa application.
