PARTNER VISA - S.J.Migration ServicesS.J.Migration Services


  • – Prospective Marriage visa Subclass 300

The Prospective Marriage visa is open to those who will marry their Australian Citizen/PR partner within 9 months of arriving to Australia, then leading to an option for an Onshore Partner Visa 820/801. You are required to have met before in person before this option is available to you, and is a great temporary visa to lead to permanent residency in the 820/801 onshore partner visa.


There are two types of Partner Visas and it is based on the location of applicant.

  • – For offshore applicants: Partner (Provisional) visa (Subclasses 309) and Permanent Partner visa (Subclass) 100

For offshore applicants, this Partner Visa is available to the de facto or spouse of an eligible Australian citizen/PR so that they can come to Australia to be with their loved one.

The 309 Visa is the temporary visa and the 100 Visa is the permanent visa, both applied for at the same time and both offshore from outside of Australia.

  • – For onshore applicants: Temporary Partner visa (Subclasses 820) and Permanent Partner visa (Subclass 801)

This Partner Visa allows the de facto or spouse of an eligible Australian citizen/PR already onshore to remain in Australia to be with their loved one. The 820 Visa is the temporary visa and the 801 Visa is the permanent visa, both applied for at the same time and both onshore within Australia.

The temporary partner visa (subclass 820 or 309) is granted first and lets you stay in Australia while the permanent partner visa (subclass 801 or 100) is processed.

Getting the permanent Partner visa is a two-stage process. To be qualified for a permanent partner visa you first need to be granted a provisional partner visa. You must apply for both the permanent and temporary visas at the same time and pay only one fee. If you are granted the temporary visa, you are eligible to be assessed for the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801) about two years after you lodged your application. You will need to provide further documents for this assessment.

The partner temporary/provisional visa lets the visa holder to:

Come to Australia and stay there until a decision is made about the permanent partner visa

  • → Live, work and study in Australia

  • → Enrol in Medicare

  • → Attend free English language classes provided by the Adult Migrant English Program

SJ Migration agents are able to ensure that your partner visa application is decision ready and meets all the requirements for a timely visa process. We have years of experience dealing with complex partner visa application and can walk you through to ensure your application is not delayed and is successful.

Lodging an online partner visa application is not difficult and could be done in about 1 hour. However, unless the information and supporting documents that you provide are correct, comprehensive  and extensive, chances of visa refusal could be high. Unfortunately, partner visa case officers are not very flexible and always require significant amount of evidence to be satisfied that a relationship is genuine and ongoing. 

At SJ Migration, our agents are able to advise you on the type of evidence that you can prepare to make a decision ready application. We can also inform you if you are barred from sponsoring someone or point out any other weaknesses that your case might have. 

Before you apply for your partner visa, come and meet with one of our agents in Melbourne. We are more than happy to discuss your application with you and ensure you are doing your application correctly.
