AUSTRALIAN PARTNER VISAS

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.

I have worked with several migration agencies in Australia but nothing comes close to Gold Migration. The most recent application is my Partner visa which is quite a complex one due to a character requirement issue I had back in the UK a few years ago. They accepted me as a client when everyone said no to me. To the team at Gold Migration, I cant thank you enough for what you did for me. You changed my life and I hope you can help more people like me.read more

Gold Migration is very impressive. I was quoted a higher fee than others but I went with them in the confidence to deliver which was instilled in me. I have had 3 failed attempts at getting a visitor's visa for my wife. Not only did Gold deliver, but did so when they said they would. Big thanks to the team here. My wife has arrived the country, and thanks for Gold. Money well spent.read more

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.
