Hi! Good luck! I am Australian and married my British husband in Aus but our situation is different from yours so this is not the process we used: If you are planning on staying in Australia on a partner visa, I'm sure you have to do it with a fiance visa (prospective marriage 300). Make sure you start the process early and apply from outside Australia but be aware you can only be in Australia for 9 months once it is granted. Looks like you then apply for partner visa 801/820.

My advice: be thorough, be prepared, keep as much evidence as you can of your relationship, and start saving money! Visas are expensive, time consuming and very stressful sad.gif Getting married on a fiance visa sounds really stressful, you might have to look at not planning anything until the visa is granted so you can be sure of dates!
