Ethos Migration Lawyers are pleased to advise that The Department of Home Affairs has finally made a Migration Amendment known as the ‘Prospective Marriage Visas Regulations 2020 – F2020L01577‘ which amends the current regulations relating to the expiry date of Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visas.
The effect of this instrument allows Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa holders to travel to, enter and remain in Australia until 31 March 2022.
Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa holders have been significantly disadvantaged due to the restrictions and unintended consequences the COVID-19 pandemic has had on their travel to Australia.
The cohort of visa holders that will be eligible for this extended visa expiry period are SC300 visa holders that:
- had a visa in effect at any time during the period beginning on 6 October 2020 and ending on 10 December 2020; and
- was located outside of Australia on 10 December 2020
