Visa to Australia

What is an Australian Partner Visa?

An Australian partner visa is referred to those foreigners who are either legally married to or in a de facto relationship with their eligible partners (including same-sex partners). Those who are married to their eligible partners can apply for the temporary or permanent spouse visa. Those who are engaged and intend to marry their eligible fiancée have to apply for the Prospective Marriage (fiancée) visa. It is necessary that the applicant and their fiancée get married within 9 months after the visa is granted as the visa is only be valid for that period.

Temporary spouse visa to a permanent spouse visa

You should maintain your marital relationship and meet all the legal requirements to be granted a permanent spouse visa after the two year waiting period under the temporary visa. The permanent spouse visa is granted provided that the sponsor and the applicant meet all legal requirements.
