Best lawyers/consultants in town, I highly recommend their consultation, worked with "Mr. Andreas" during my employer sponsor 186 DE visa with family application onshore, He is very active, friendly, helpful, thorough and detail oriented person. He managed to get employer nomination approval in just 10 days after application, and visa approval the next day after medicals cleared, This is the type of exemplary customer service they provide. Thanks to their expertise and experience. I am very happy and glad that we have engaged "Gold Migration Lawyers" to handle our application.read more

frequently asked questions

Does the Sponsor need to be offshore as well when I apply for the visa?

No, the Sponsor can be either onshore or offshore.

Can I be in Australia for the decision?

No, you 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 if I am not married to my Australian spouse and we haven’t lived together for 12 months?

If this is the case, you should consider a Prospective Marriage (subclass 309) visa.

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 I travel to Australia whilst I am awaiting a decision on a Partner (subclass 309) visa?

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