Are you envisioning a life together Down Under with your partner? The Australian Partner visa scheme offers a pathway to make this into reality.

Let’s debunk the rumours surrounding these visas and discover how they can shape your journey towards permanent residency in Australia.

The Partner Visa category is tailor-made for couples looking to build a life in Australia. It allows the de facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen to live in the country. What sets it apart is that you apply for both the temporary and permanent visas together. This establishes the genuineness of the relationship, before then offering the transition to permanent residency.

To qualify, you must either be married or in a ‘de facto relationship’ with an Australian or eligible New Zealand citizen. A ‘de facto relationship’ refers to a partnership where two individuals, although not married, cohabit as a couple. This visa pathway aims to strengthen bonds between couples by providing them with the opportunity to share and experience life together in Australia.

With the temporary partner visa, you can remain in Australia until your permanent Partner visa application is finalised. This timeframe provides couples with ample opportunity to immerse themselves in Australian culture and explore the endless possibilities that the country has to offer.

Partner visas unlock a world of opportunities for couples seeking to build a future together in Australia. If you’re ready to take the first step towards your future as an Australian, contact us at [email protected].
