Who should apply for Partner migration visas?

Partner migration allows for the grant of a visa to a partner, where the other partner as the sponsor is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen.

The type of partner visa for which you should apply depends on the type of relationship you are currently in at the time of your application:

  1. Fiancé - Couples who are engaged to be married

  2. Spouse - Couples in a married or de facto partner relationship (includes same-sex couples) 

Acknowledgements and interviews

An acknowledgment letter will be sent to you within 7 days of the Immigration Office receiving your application.  If an interview is required, you will be contacted by a case officer within 6 months who will make the necessary arrangements.

Visitor visas

You can apply for a visitor visa while your application is being processed. Your application will need to be assessed as likely to be granted (you meet the health requirement, and your relationship assessed as genuine). All the normal visitor visa requirements will also need to be met. Please see the appropriate checklist for visitor visa applications.  

There have been recent changes involving the police and character requirements (applications involving children).

Checklist – Include this checklist and the following items in your application
