When it comes to getting an Australian partner Visa, the process isn’t as easy as most people think. Even if there are online portals trying to make you feel at ease, you do not know the process that goes into it. Right from arranging for the right documents, putting in signatures, paying the right fees, etc. and all of this can make you take multiple rounds of the offices while making you waste money each time.What makes you eligible for a Partner visa?
To make all of that easy for you and your partner, Global Visa help is the right place for you to be. Before we emphasise on the process of getting the partner Visa, the first thing that needs to be kept in mind is that you have to be either ‘married’ or in a ‘de-facto relationship’ with your partner who is an Australian citizen, a permanent resident of Australia or is eligible for citizenship of New Zealand.
Understanding the basics of a Partner Visa
When you apply for a Partner visa in Australia, you should be aware of the fact that you cannot immediately start working or study almost immediately in any organisation or institution in Australia respectively unless you already have an existing permit for the same. Once your existing Visa expires, you are eligible for work and study once the Bridging Visa A or Bridging Visa B is applicable. If that is not the case, you would be receiving a temporary Partner Visa, and that would allow you to be employed or study at any institute of your choice. During this time, you cannot apply for any grants or scholarships unless you receive the permanent Visa (subclass 100 and 801).

A Quick Overview of the Eligibility Criteria for Partner Visa
While discussed at the beginning, there are two methods that make you eligible for a Partner Visa in Australia – the de jure relationship (Being Married) and the de facto relationship. Here is a quick walkthrough to allow you to know more about each of it and whether you fit into any one of these categories.
The De Jure relationship (Legally Married)
When you apply for a partner Visa in Australia, there is need to be legally bound in marriage to your partner who is also likely to be your sponsor. If you intend to apply for the Visa outside Australia, you need to either be already married or plan to get married legally in the days to come. If you have been married in another country outside Australia, the documents are acceptable and valid under the Australian Law. With this, there are a few exceptions where underage marriages, same-sex marriages and polygamous marriages aren’t acceptable to the Australian Law.
While all these are essentials to be followed to be eligible for a Partner Visa, here are a few more things that you are to take heed of.
- An eligible person should be your sponsor
- You are to be legally married to your sponsor/partner
- Show proof that the both of you have mutual commitment to the shared life
- Prove that you both share a genuine relationship
- Give proof of both residing together and if separate then only on a temporary basis.
- Meet health requirements as per the law
The De Facto Relationship
This is almost as that of the De Jure relationship, and the only difference here is that since you aren’t married to your partner, you have to ensure that you have been in the relationship for at least a year.
