Spouse and Family Visas

Applications for spouse visas require that the applicants must be married or in a de facto relationship (generally they must have resided together for at least a period of 12 months prior to the date of lodgement of their visa application). Please contact us regarding exemptions from the 12 month relationship requirement.

Partner visas are typically issued in 2 steps. A temporary or provisional visa is granted to the partner for 2 years and if
the Department is satisfied that the relationship continues to meet the requirements a permanent visa is granted.

This visa requires that the applicants are able to prove they are in a genuine and ongoing relationship to the exclusion of all others and that you live together on a permanent basis.
