Australian Partner Visa: Types, Requirements, How to Apply

Australian Partner Visa: Types, Requirements, How to Apply

As the name implies, a partner visa allows married partners of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, and qualified New Zealand citizens, as well as de facto partners (including those in a same-sex relationship), to enter and live permanently in Australia. 

Although there are three main subclasses of partner visas, these visas can be essentially categorised into two groups: partner visas and visas for prospective marriages. The kind of relationship you are in will determine the sort of visa you should apply for.

The categories of relationships and the corresponding visas are as follows:

    ● Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300)

    ● Partner Visa Offshore (Subclasses 309 and 100)

    ● Partner Visa Onshore (Subclass 820/801)


Your temporary partner visa will be valid for the whole period of the waiting duration until the Immigration Department makes any significant decision. They will assess your application to grant a permanent partner visa. And, with the approved visa, you will be able to remain in Australia permanently.

Prospective Marriage Visa ( Subclass 300)

This visa allows you to travel to Australia to get married to your future spouse even before you apply for a Partner visa.

The subclass 300 prospective marriage visa is the most sought-after option for individuals who are engaged to an Australian citizen, a permanent Australian resident, or a person who qualifies for citizenship of New Zealand. However, the other partner should not be present in Australia at the time of application. This will help the applicant to be eligible for this visa, which is also known as a fiancé visa.

Partner Visa Offshore (Subclasses 309 and 100)

You can apply for Partner Visas 309 and 100 from abroad. It enables the partner or spouse of a qualifying New Zealand citizen, an Australian permanent resident, or both to reside in Australia. You submit an application for both the temporary and the permanent partner visas at the same time.

Partner Visa Onshore (Subclass 820/801)

Subclass 820 and subclass 801, both onshore partner visa schemes, are the most widely used de facto partner visa choices. Subclasses 309 and 100 of the offshore partner visa are available. These two are the most practical choices to consider if you are in a long-term de facto relationship with an Australian or New Zealander citizen.


    ● When you apply for this Australian visa, you are not physically present in Australia.

    ● When your partner visa was granted, you had better not be in Australia.

    ● You should obey all legal requirements outlined by Australian law.

    ● You should still meet legal requirements two years after receiving the temporary visa

    ● Pay for the visa application and related fees.

    ● For Health exams you might be charged for the cost of the physical.

    ● You might have to pay for police checks to be processed in your own nation if they are required.

These are some of the prerequisites that must be met even to submit an application. There are numerous other requirements as well, and your application under this provision will be evaluated in accordance with them in the same manner as all Australian partners applying for partner visas.
