Australia Spouse/ Partner Visa


To obtain an Australian partner visa you have to be the spouse, or in a de facto relationship, with an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen. The partner visa is with initial duration of 2 years, and can later be extended to permanent residency if the relationship is continuing. Visa First will help you process your Australian Spouse/ Partner visa, providing you with all the information you need, and processing your application up to the standard required by the government for a successful application - contact us today.


Australian Spouse Visa – Married 


To apply for an Australian Spouse Visa on the basis of your marriage, you must be legally married to your partner. If you were married in a country other than Australia, and your marriage is valid in that country, generally, your marriage will be recognised as valid under Australian law as well. You will be required to provide a proof of your marriage, most often a marriage certificate.


Australian Partner Visa – De Facto Relationship


De facto partners must be able to prove they have lived together for a period of no less than 12 months. How to prove your relationship is genuine and continuing:


  • Show knowledge of each other's personal circumstances;
  • Joint finances such as any joint ownership of real estate, joint bank accounts or other major assets;
  • The nature of your household, including living arrangements such as joint residential receipts or joint household accounts.
  • The social aspects of your relationship, provided in statements (statutory declarations) by parents, family members, relatives, friends and other interested parties.
  • Joint membership of organisations or joint participation in sporting, social or other activities;
  • Joint travel.
