Fill in the form to book a consultation and know your best chances of approval now…

SUBCLASS 820 – PARTNER VISA

This visa lets the De Facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen live in Australia. Getting this visa is the first step towards a permanent Partner visa (subclass 801).


Our Immigration Lawyers and Registered Migration Agents are experts in Subclass 820 Visa. Our team can assess your circumstances and let you know if this visa is the right pathway for you. We can point out the weaknesses of your case and assist you with making a strong and decision ready application. Our average processing time is much lower than the Department’s average processing time. We always ensure that our client’s subclass 820 is lodged validly and in order for them to be entitled to a Bridging Visa A (BVA).


Do not risk visa refusal and save yourself time and money by seeking professional help from our team. We have a dedicated and talented Partner Visa Team at Gold Migration Lawyers with significant amount of experience in subclass 820 visa. We have managed to assist people in various circumstances and we have the experience and expertise to provide accurate and reliable advice.


If you have not lived together for 12 months and think that you are not eligible to apply, think again! Our Lawyers have assisted hundreds of applicants who had not lived together with their partners for 12 months.

Seeking professional help is highly recommended as Department’s Partner Visa Case officers cannot provide advice and if any errors are made during the application process or even after visa lodgement, there will be a high chance of visa refusal.

frequently asked questions

In what location should I be to be able to apply for a Partner (subclass 820) Visa?

You must be onshore (inside Australia), but not in Immigration clearance/detention.

Can I apply for a Partner Visa if I currently don’t hold an Australian Visa?

If you satisfy Schedule 3 of the Migration Regulations 1994, then you will be able to. In simpler terms, compelling reasons must exist and thoroughly explained to the Department of Home Affairs.

Can I apply for an Partner (subclass 820) Visa if we haven’t been living together for at least 12 months?

Yes, you can. If you register your domestic relationship with the Australian State or Territory you live in. Some exemptions apply.

Can I include my children in my Partner Visa application?

Yes, you can, as long as they are dependent on you. If your children are over 18 years old, they need to be fully financially dependent on you.

Once granted, can I work in Australia?

Yes, Partner Visa holders have full work rights in Australia.

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 820 visa. If the DHA does not, you will be able to provide further information for the Permanent Partner (subclass 801) visa exactly 2 years after your original Partner Visa lodgement, as long as your Partner Visa has been granted.
