Types of Partner Visas

Answering your “What are the different types of Partner Visa” queries

Partner (provisional) visa (Subclass 309)

Partner visa is for couples who are either married or are in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen or a permanent resident or with an eligible New Zealand citizen. In this case, the applicant is usually not living in Australia when applying. Such visas are classified as a temporary partner visa (Subclass 309). After two years of the couple being together, permanent residency is granted to the partner visa (subclass 100). 

  • Either be a spouse or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, or permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
  • His/her partner has not been prohibited from sponsoring for partner visas for any reason(s)
  • His/her application for sponsorship has not been refused by the Department for any reason (s)
  • Eligible NZ Citizen: A New Zealand citizen holding a Subclass 444 special category visa with his/her social security payment has been protected

Partner visa (Subclass 100)

After your Subclass 309 partner visa application has been granted, the step is applying for the Partner visa for permanent residency. For this to happen, you must be in a healthy and genuinely committed relationship with your Australian sponsor. 

  • He/she is the prospective spouse of an Australian citizen, or a permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
  • He/she truly intends to marry and live with his or her Australian fiancé/fiancée
  • He/she has NO legal impediment to the marriage
  • The prospective spouse is not prohibited from sponsoring for any reason(s)
  • The sponsorship application by the prospective spouse is not refused by the Department for any reason(s)

Partner (Temporary) visa (Subclass 820)

For couples living in Australia who are in a marriage or are in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen, can apply for a Partner (Temporary) visa in Australia. 

  • You are eligible if you are a spouse or a de facto partner of an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
  • Your partner can sponsor your partner visa
  • The partner’s application for sponsorship hasn’t been rejected by the Department for any reason(s)
  • Eligible NZ Citizen: A New Zealand citizen holding a Subclass 444 special category visa with his/her social security payment has been protected

Partner visa (Subclass 801)

The Subclass 801 visa is a permanent visa that you would apply for after your Subclass 820 Partner visa application Australia is granted. There are rules about when you can apply for such visas, and obviously, you must still be in a genuine and continuing relationship with your Australian Sponsor.

  • You are eligible if you are a spouse or a de facto partner of an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
  • Your partner can sponsor your partner visa
  • The partner’s application for sponsorship hasn’t been rejected by the Department for any reason(s)
  • Eligible NZ Citizen: A New Zealand citizen holding a Subclass 444 special category visa with his/her social security payment has been protected

Prospective Marriage visa (Subclass 300)

Also known as the ‘Fiancé/Fiancée visa’, such a visa is for people who are engaged to an Australian citizen, or an Australian resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen. If the Prospective Marriage visa (Subclass 300) is granted, it shall lead to the Subclass 820 visa (as applicable).

  • He/she is the prospective spouse of an Australian citizen, or a permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen
  • He/she truly intends to marry and live with his or her Australian fiancé/fiancée
