Partner Visa Migration Agents and Consultants 

The Australian Partner Visas, often referred to as de facto visas, are usually provided to the partners or spouses of an Australian citizen, eligible New Zealand Citizens living in Australia, or an Australian permanent resident. The spouse or partner can apply for both the temporary and permanent partner visas together.

For obtaining a partner visa in Australia, there are two simple stages. In the first stage, a person must acquire a provisional partner visa. This provisional partner visa is categorized for onshore (which falls under the Subclass 820) and offshore (which falls under the Subclass 309) applicants. Secondly, after the applicant qualifies for the provisional partner visa, they need to stay in Australia for a certain period. Couples are assessed once again to fulfill the criteria of a permanent partner visa.
