Partner visa allows spouses or de facto partners (including same-sex partners) of Australian citizens, permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens to stay in Australia.
To be eligible for this visa you must be married or able to prove a de-facto relationship for at least 12 months immediately prior to the visa application. In certain circumstances the period for de-facto relationships can be shorter, for example when the relationship is registered in Australia (not available in all states).

Visas for partners include:

  • Partner Visa: onshore temporary and permanent visas (subclasses 820/801)
  • Partner Visa: offshore temporary and permanent visas (subclasses 309/100)
  • Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300)

Generally it is a two stage application process and it takes at least 2 years to get Permanent Residency visa as a spouse or de-facto partner.
During the first stage partners need to demonstrate this is a genuine and continuing relationship by:

  • describing history of the relationship such as how they met, how the relationship developed, and when they decided to get married or start a de-facto relationship.
  • providing financial evidence of their relationship such as joint accounts or property.
  • demonstrating joint nature of household living such as joint rental or utility bills, correspondence to the same address.
  • presenting social context of the relationship such as joint travel, photos, invitations, statutory declarations from family and friends.
The second stage usually takes place two years after the first stage of the visa application. This stage aims to determine if the relationship is still genuine and continuing.

I would highly recommend Jarek Rudnik. I didn’t have a lot of time to arrange all my paperwork but thanks to Jarek's efforts and level of organizing everything, I got my visa approved quicker than I was expecting. Thanks for awesome service.

Kui selle tee valisin siis poleks uskunud, et minu poolt nii vähesel määral asjaajamist saab olema. Väga selged ja konkreetsed juhtnöörid Jareku poolt tegid kogu protsessi äärmiselt lihtsaks. Soovitan soojalt :)
