Partner Temporary and Permanent Visa (Onshore)
Is your fiancé a citizen or permanent resident of Australia or an eligible New Zealand citizen and you wish to apply for permanent residency in Australia? This is the right visa for you.
Beneficiaries of this visa are:
- Married partners;
- People intending to marry and
- De-facto partners, including those in a same-sex relationship.
This visa benefits people who are in Australia when they lodge their application. This visa must be sponsored by your partner and once granted, you will be permitted to stay in Australia for at least two years. You would be granted a Permanent Partner Visa if you still have a healthy relationship after the two years and meet all necessary criteria as prescribed by DOHA.
