In my view these guys are legends, and they are the best migration law firm in Australia. I consulted 5 other migration firms and none of them could match the expertise of Gold Migration Lawyers. If you have a complex application, go to Gold Migration!read more

We hired Gold Migration Lawyers to assist us with our partner visa application. At the time the department’s processing time was over 24 months. GML lodged our application and it got approved in 4 months. We are extremely happy with the outcome as I know people who have been waiting for years for their partner visa. I highly recommend Gold Migration Lawyers. The team is amazing!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

Overseas Partner Visa – frequently asked questions

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

No, you, the Sponsor, can be either onshore or offshore.

Can your boyfriend or girlfriend be in Australia for the decision?

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

What is the pathway to 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, as long as your Partner Visa has been granted.

Can your boyfriend or girlfriend travel to Australia whilst they are awaiting a decision on a Partner (subclass 309) visa?

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