General Information on Partner Visas
If you are in a relationship with an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you may be eligible for a grant of a Partner visa on the basis of their sponsorship.
You may be eligible for a partner visa if you and your partner:
- Are married;
- Are engaged to be married; or
- Are in a de facto relationship; or
- Have registered your relationship with a relevant state/territory authority.
Your most suitable visa pathway will depend on your individual circumstances, including whether the person applying for the visa is inside or outside Australia at the time of application.
How do I apply for a Partner visa?
We can assist you with all stages of the Partner visa application process. This process includes a visa application, and a sponsorship application.
Each of the three Partner visa options will require evidence that your relationship is genuine and continuing. To satisfy this requirement, you should be able to provide evidence that addresses the following:
- Financial interdependence
- Social interdependence
- The nature of your ongoing commitment to one another
