PARTNER VISA (Subclass 309/100)

VISA OVERVIEW

The Partner Visa is a provisional two (2) year visa that offers a pathway to permanent residency to applicants who are in a committed relationship with an Australian citizen or permanent resident.


WHO CAN APPLY

Anyone over the age of 18 who has been living with an Australian citizen or permanent resident in a genuine relationship for at least 12 months.


VISA ENTITLEMENTS

An Australian Partner Visa entitles married and de facto partners of Australian citizens or permanent residents to enter and/or remain in Australia.


VISA REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible for an Australian Partner Visa, you must be able to meet the following requirements:

  • Be over the age of 18
  • Have sponsorship provided for you by your partner
  • Be married or in a de facto relationship and be sponsored by your partner
  • Evidence that you have been in a genuine and committed relationship for at least 12 months
  • Be living with your partner, or have exceptional circumstances for living apart
  • Meet the health and character requirements

There are two stages in the visa application process:

Initially a temporary Partner (309) Visa will be granted and will be valid for two years from the date of application. After two years, if your relationship is assessed to be genuine, you will be eligible for a Permanent Partner (100) Visa,

If you have been married to or in a de facto relationship with your sponsoring partner for at least three years when lodging your initial application, (or two years you have children together) you may be granted the Permanent Partner (100) Visa immediately.
