Partner Visa Australia

Fallen in love? Australian partner visas aim to bring or keep you and your loved one together.

Partner visa applications can be some of the most challenging but also, at the same time some of the most rewarding as the goal is to be reunited with your loved one.

Generally, there are two types of applications for spouse visas: Temporary and Permanent.

They can both be submitted at the same time and in or outside of Australia. Which way you do will depend on your personal situation. There is also a third type of application which can be used for those who are engaged and wish to bring their fiancé/ee to Australia.

What do I need to apply?

Usually, to be successful in your application, you will need to have met certain key criteria:

  • Be sponsored by an Australian Citizen or permanent resident
  • Be in a genuine relationship
  • Meet the health and character criteria

What is a genuine relationship?

By immigration standards, this means that you are in a committed, ongoing and authentic relationship to the exclusion of all others.

How do I prove my relationship?

If you are not married to your partner, one of the key things you will need to show is that you and your partner have been living together for at least twelve months.

If you are married or have registered the relationship, you will need to provide evidence of your relationship. The twelve-month period can sometimes be waived in this case.

There is a standard set of documents that you must provide but there are also documents which are specific to each individual case.
