Relationship Developed So Quickly | Thoughts on getting PMV

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Just want to hear your thoughts about our situation with my girlfriend and that we are considering applying for Prospective Marriage Visa. 

We had a class elementary reunion last December 2018 and from there I met my girlfriend. I am based in Manila and my girlfriend is based in Sydney.

5th of January 2019, I laid down my intentions to court my "friend" back then before she flew back to Sydney. I did a long distance courtship(fb messenger chat, sending video messages, and serenading videos) for 4 months  until I decided to fly to Sydney to visit her last June 2019.

15th of June 2019, we became a couple officially.  I met her family and friends in Sydney and we had a great time.

20th of June 2019, I flew back to Manila and we officially started our long distance relationship. We do Facetime everyday from then on.

My girlfriend is set to visit Manila on September 2019 and I am set ready to propose for marriage by that time.

Given my girlfriend will say yes to my proposal and everything falls in the right place, if we apply for Prospective Marriage Visa, does the "quick" development of our relationship affects negatively? Does anyone knows that have the same situation as we do?

Hi Lakai,

No the time does not affect a PMV 300 I met my partner March 18 and applied for this Visa Jan 19 after working really hard on gathering evidence of our relationship.


It's a good idea to get pictures of you both with parents each others Friends etc keep logs of calls FT, I just took screen shots off my phone witch showed the dates and continued communication.

Keep receipts, flight itineraries hotel bookings, gifts etc etc and of course once you propose get your NOIM notice of intent to Marry. 

There is heaps of evidence to gather and form 80 is big for you to fill out, medical checks police checks..... 

So in short, you are good to go, just get your yes!! Start gathering evidence now and get it in ASAP.


Good luck

Applied for PMV 300  -  17 Jan 19 ( Via a British Agent)

Request from CO      -  24 May 19 ( deadline 21 June 19 )

All evidence sent         -  19 June 19 

waiting for grant ........

Hi Jeannie,

Thank you so much for the information!

I guess we'll have a challenge in getting Form 888 from her friends.

Good luck to you too!
