Subclass 820 Visa & Partner Visa

Our Immigration Lawyers are able to ensure that your partner visa application is decision ready and meets all the requirements for a speedy visa process. Our Lawyers have years of experience dealing with complex partner visa applications and can guide you to ensure your application is not delayed and is successful.

Lodging an online partner visa application is not difficult and can be done in perhaps 1 hour. However, unless the information and supporting documents that you provide are correct, comprehensive and extensive, there will be high a chance of visa refusal. Unfortunately, partner visa case officers are not very flexible and always require significant amount of evidence to be satisfied that a relationship is genuine and ongoing.

Our Immigration Lawyers are able to advise you on the type of evidence that you can prepare to make a decision ready application. Our expert lawyers can also inform you if you are barred from sponsoring someone or point out any other weaknesses that your case may have.

frequently asked questions

Who can be a Sponsor for a Partner Visa?

An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen.

Can I apply for a Partner Visa if I’m not married to my Partner?

Yes, you can. If you have been living together for at least 12 months you may meet the de facto criteria. Bear in mind that the 12 month living together requirement could be waived in certain circumstances.

What are the most common reasons for a Partner Visa refusal?

If insufficient evidence was provided to the DHA, failure to upload the right witness declarations, failing to respond to further requests from the DHA in a professional manner. Also if the Sponsor was not an eligible sponsor or has had issues with Family Violence and/or has a criminal history.

What kind of documents must I provide?

There is a large number of Time of Application (ToA) and Time of Decision (ToD) documents that you must provide. Depending on your circumstances, they vary. At Gold Migration Lawyers, we provide our clients with a Personalised Checklist. This checklist normally more than 10 pages and is very comprehensive.

What other eligibility criteria must the Sponsor meet?

Other than previously holding certain visas, the Sponsor is not able to sponsor more than 2 individuals in their lifetime (exceptions apply); and no more than 1 individual per 5 year period (exceptions apply).

Will my Sponsor or I be interviewed by the Department of Home Affairs (DHA)?

It depends. The DHA may request an interview if you’re applying for an offshore Partner Visa. If you apply in Australia, it is unlikely that the DHA will request an interview.

What is an Australian partner visa?

A partner visa in Australia is a long-term visa for foreign nationals who are either married to, or in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen. If you’re already in Australia, you’ll most likely want to apply for a subclass 820 visa before making a permanent visa application.

What are the requirements for a partner visa in Australia?

You can discuss all the eligibility details during your consultation with a partner visa migration agent or immigration lawyer in Melbourne or Sydney (or during your online meeting). The basic requirements at the time of writing are that you are 18 years or older, married or in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen and are able to meet the health/character requirements.

Can you stay in Australia while waiting for a partner visa?

If you apply for a partner or marriage visa in Australia, rather than an offshore partner visa, you will normally be granted a bridging visa while your application is under consideration. This visa will enable you to stay in Australia until a decision on your application is reached. If you’re not sure about your current status and are worried about having to leave the country, please feel free to call and speak to a partner visa lawyer in Sydney or Melbourne.

How much does the partner visa cost?

The fees we charge for assisting with applications for a partner visa in Melbourne, Sydney or any other location vary depending on the details of each individual case. However, we always charge a fixed fee for our services and will be able to tell you exactly how much it will cost after your initial consultation: there are no unpleasant surprises to worry about when working with a partner visa migration agent in Sydney or Melbourne from Gold Migration.

How long is the partner visa valid for?

A subclass 820 marriage or de facto visa in Australia is normally valid for 2 years. Applicants who are eligible may be granted a subclass 100 (permanent) Partner visa after this period.
