Australian Partner Visas allow married or de facto (same or opposite sex) couples to enter and remain in Australia with their partner. If you are in a genuine committed relationship with a person from overseas and you are an Australian Citizen, Australian permanent resident, an eligible New Zealand Citizen or a 457 Visa holder, there are a number of options for you and your spouse or de facto under the partner visa program.

We have assisted hundreds of clients with the preparation of partner and de facto visa applications that meet the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s requirements.
These Partner Visas are for the spouse or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen wishing to live in Australia. The temporary Partner visa (subclass 820 and 309) is the first stage before lodging the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801 and 100). Only one application is lodged for your temporary and permanent visas, but the application is processed in two stages.
Subclass 820/801 is an onshore Partner Visa. The Subclass 309/100 is the equivalent offshore Partner Visa.
This visa is for the spouse or de facto partner of a Temporary Work (Subclass 457) Visa holder. A Temporary Work (Subclass 457) visa holder can add their spouse or de facto partner and children to their visa as secondary applicants.
This Australian partner visa allows applicants to work while in Australia.
This is a temporary visa for people who want to come to Australia to marry their prospective spouse and live as husband and wife. This visa is for 9 months and the applicant must be outside of Australia when the application is lodged and when the visa is granted.
This visa allows applicants to apply for an Australian partner visa after marriage.
