Partner visa: Important points & requirements

The new changes to Sponsored family visa’s, have not been implemented for Partner visas. The changes meant that Sponsorships must be lodged first and approved before Partner visas can be lodged. This change would have adversely impacted onshore Partner visa applicants wanting to lodge a visa application prior to their substantive visa expiring. The sponsorship application would have been assessed separately and would had to be approved before a valid Partner visa application could be lodged.

Requirements:

To qualify and apply for a Partner Visa Australia, you must be either be Married to
or in a de facto relationship unless exempt with an Australian Citizen, Australian Permanent resident, or Eligible New Zealand Citizen at the time of applying.

If you lodge a Partner visa whilst onshore (in Australia) you will get a Bridging visa associated to it. Note that there could be limitations on being able to work or study. This will be dependent on the previous visa you held and if you had work or study rights on that visa.
