The Prospective Marriage visa application (subclass 300) is a visa granted to people who wish to enter Australia in order to marry and live with their fiancé. The subclass 300 visa is a temporary visa granted to individuals with an intention to marry their prospective spouse within a specified period of nine months. The Prospective Marriage visa application must be submitted outside Australia where the applicant must remain until the visa is granted.
When the Prospective Marriage visa application is approved, holders are allowed to travel in and out of Australia prior to the marriage. Subclass 300 visa holders are also given the privilege to work and study in Australia. After the marriage between the applicant and the sponsor, both of them will be eligible to apply for Temporary Partner subclass 820 visas and ultimately, Permanent Partner subclass 801 visas.
