To support Prospective Marriage visa holders (Subclass 300), changes were introduced in late 2020 / early 2021 to former visa holders and visa applicants who were unable to enter Australia due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

On 29 October 2021, further extensions of visa validity periods and Visa Application Charge (VAC) refunds were introduced. These were to support Prospective Marriage visa holders who continue to face difficulties entering Australia due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions.
