Partner Visa

Your guaranteed path to Australia

Partner Visas are granted in a two-stage process with a provisional visa being granted initially and the permanent visa being considered 2 years after the initial application. However, the applicant is required to submit one application form and pay visa application charge once only.

Applications can be made while the applicant is in Australia (Subclass 820 & 801) or from overseas when the applicant is overseas at the time of application (Subclass 309 & 100).
Applicants must show evidence supporting the existence of relationship with their partner. To know how to write a relationship statement for your partner visa,click here.

Dependent family members can be included in the main applicant's Partner visa application depending on the location of the applicant and family member at the time of application and whether the visa applicant has been granted the provisional Partner visa (the first stage).

How to successfully apply for a partnership visa in Australia?

In order to successfully apply for this visa, you will need to meet a number of following key requirements:
