The partner visa is a type of visa that allows Australian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their partners (including same-sex partners). Partner visas are available to people who are married, engaged or have lived together in a de facto relationship for at least 12 months.
There are several Australian visa application options for you:
There are two types of partner visa onshore:
The partner visa subclass 820 is a temporary partner visa to live in Australia. It is the initial stage of the search for your permanent Australian visa. On the other hand, Subclass 801 is a permanent visa. You will have to apply for both visas at the same time.
There are two types of partner visa onshore:
With the partner visa subclass 309, the applicant can apply for a partner visa while in Australia or outside the country, only if the applicant is married or has a de facto relationship with a permanent resident of Australia, a citizen of Australia or a citizen of New Zealand.
This subclass 300 visa, allows you to come to Australia to marry your future husband and then apply for the partner visa. Also, for those who are engaged to an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident or a person who is eligible to be a New Zealand citizen. This partner visa is initially temporary but leads to obtaining permanent residence.
If you want to successfully apply for a partner visa and maximise your chances of getting a successful response, keep the following in mind:

Subclass 100 – Partner Visa (Migrant) – You are outside Australia.
Subclass 820 – Partner Visa (Temporary) – You are in Australia.
Subclass 801 – Membership Visa (Permanent) – You are in Australia.
Subclass 300 – Prospective Marriage Visa – You are in Australia.
You will not get your visa just for the fact of paying it or because you are married or your relationship is registered, no applicant is guaranteed success. You must provide all the necessary evidence to support your request since your relationship will be evaluated based on the evidence presented that demonstrates the authenticity of it.
It is a key point to have the testimonies of family and friends who can testify that the relationship is genuine and true. So go with your partner at social events, share spaces where you can take photos since these will serve as evidence.
If you are in a distance relationship, you must communicate with your partner frequently, in this way you can have a record of your communication. This will not only verify the length of your relationship but will also show immigration the nature of the relationship and the degree of commitment. Your relationship will be much more genuine if you constantly communicate with your partner and can show evidence of this.
One of the aspects they evaluate to determine the authenticity of your relationship is the financial aspect. Therefore, it is crucial to demonstrate how you share and manage finances as a couple. The best way to prove it is to open a bank account together. So you can pay from that account, rent, market, among other expenses. If you cannot open a mutual bank account, then, transfer money between your accounts, this can also be great evidence.
A partner visa requires that the applicant and the sponsor live together. For this reason, you must show evidence that you live together in the same residence. Updating the address on invoices and correspondence is a great way to prove it.
While you wait for the Department to process the second stage of your partner visa, remember to keep a record of the relationship. The Department is likely to request more documents to demonstrate the continuity of the relationship. Remember to keep all the photos together at social events, family gatherings, trips, etc.
These documents and pieces of evidence are necessary for the presentation of the application (form 888).At Visado we want you to fulfil your dream of migrating to Australia, that is why we will advise you for the application of your partner visa.

Our experience with Visado was incredible. Our immigration agent Nicolas was very professional, efficient and fast. His experience made the partner visa application process simple and easy, and we even received full visa approval months before immigration guidelines were suggested. Without Visado we would have had many difficulties throughout the process, since as it progresses many documents are certainly not so clear for someone not familiar with the process, so if we had done it on our own, we might not have good news.
I must admit that Visado has given me the best advice on how to proceed with my application for the partner visa. They did everything for me, including filling out all the relevant application forms. I just had to provide all the necessary documents and information. Visado can help you with all migration and visa inquiries you may have, they are always there to answer any questions. I would definitely recommend others to seek Visado for all of their immigration needs.
The immigration agent who handled our case is Nicolas Miranda. I am very grateful for his professionalism and willingness. He knows the whole process perfectly, so he guided us in an easy-to-understand way. It was a great advantage that I am bilingual (Spanish-English) because my mother tongue is Spanish and my partner’s is English, so communication was fluid and the information was clear to each of us.
