My wife and I, who had been separated due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, engaged Gold Migration Lawyers to help us be reunited after having been unsuccessful in doing so on our own. To go from feeling hopeless and having no idea how to move forward to leaving our initial consultation with Gold Migration with a firm plan and full confidence that the team understood our situation, to having a 309 Partner Visa approved just 4 months later (just 2.5 months processing time!) and being reunited with my wife in Australia just a few weeks after that goes beyond what a five-star review can convey, but needless to say we are extremely grateful for the always professional, prompt, and practical assistance of Gold Migration. Especially in cases like ours there is no price that can be put on what their hard work makes possible. Cannot recommend highly enough for working through visa and immigration solutions from the ground up.read more

I am very grateful to the lawyer Peter Peng. Although my case is very troublesome, he was very patient to help me solve it step by step. At that time, I only had 20 days to provide supplementary information from the Immigration. I found this law firm, the owner, Ramtin.  He is very confidence and professional also made me full of confidence in him. They added different viewpoints and legal opinions in the explanation letter, which successfully made the immigration officer accept my explanation.  The next day after submitting the information, the Immigration officer immediately accepted my explanation and asked me to have a medical examination.It took two months to successfully get the Partner(820) VISA, I am very grateful to them  I highly recommend this law firm , they are really pro and they can help you slove any problem.read more

Offshore Partner Visa for Thai People in Australia – frequently asked questions

In what location should your Thai girlfriend be to be able to apply for a Partner (subclass 309) Visa?

Your Thai girlfriend must be in Thailand (outside Australia) at the time of application. If your Thai girlfriend is in Australia, she should consider an onshore partner visa (subclass 820).

Do you as a Sponsor to your Thai girlfriend need to be offshore as well when you apply for the 309 visa?

No, you, the Sponsor, can be either in Australia, in Thailand or anywhere in the world.

Can your Thai girlfriend be in Australia for the decision?

No, she should be in Thailand when the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) makes a decision on your Partner (subclass 309) visa application. Some limited exemptions apply.

What if you are not married to your Thai girlfriend and you haven’t lived together for 12 months?

If this is the case, you should consider a Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa. However, you will need to marry your Thai girlfriend within 9 months of being granted subclass 300 visa if you want to get a permanent partner visa.

What is the pathway to your Thai girlfriend Permanent Residency with this visa?

In some cases, the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) may approve the Permanent Residency stage at the same time as the subclass 309 visa. If the DHA does not, you will be able to provide further information for the Permanent Partner (subclass 100) visa exactly 2 years after your original Partner Visa lodgement by your Thai girlfriend, as long as her Partner Visa 309 has been granted.

Can your Thai girlfriend travel to Australia whilst she is awaiting a decision on a Partner (subclass 309) visa?

Yes, she can travel to Australia. However, your Thai girlfriend must be offshore when the DHA makes a decision on her application. Some exemptions apply.
