New hope for travel ban exemption applications of prospective marriage visa holders!

New guidelines released by the Department of Home Affairs show that subclass 300 prospective marriage visa holders may be granted travel ban exemptions if they hold a subclass 300 prospective marriage visa, which they applied at least 12 months prior to applying for their travel ban exemption.

This is really great news for prospective marriage visa holders and applicants, who previously would have had a lot of trouble coming into Australia as fiancés/fiancées are not regarded as "immediate family members" of Australian citizens if they do not meet de facto requirements.

Even though this new guideline does not promise the grant of the travel ban exemption for prospective marriage visa holders, it shows that the Australian government is certainly headed in a positive direction.
