The Partner Visa has been structured by the Department of Home Affairs to address the migration needs of partners. Spouses or soon-to-be-spouses can apply for the partner visa to seek permanent residence in Australia.
The applicants can apply for temporary and permanent visa based on their purpose, need and cause of stay in Australia. Both onshore and offshore individuals can apply for the visa.
If you want to accompany your partners in Australia, you must apply for the partner visa. You must be 18 or above 18 and satisfy the health and character requirements to apply for the visa.
