The types of evidence applicants can submit include but are not limited to the following:

  • Shared finances, such as joint home loans or rental agreements, joint loans, joint bank accounts, and household bills in both partners’ names
  • Shared household responsibilities, such as household bills in both partners’ names, emails addressed to both partners, documents showing joint responsibility for children, and documents proving the living arrangements.
  • Statements from friends and family confirming your relationship
  • Evidence of your commitment to each other, for example, knowledge of each other’s backgrounds, combined personal matters, and proof that you stay in touch when apart

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

While the Partner Visa (Subclass 820) and the Partner (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 309) are both temporary partner visas, applicants must be in Australia when applying for the Subclass 820 Visa and outside of Australia when applying for the Subclass 309 visa.

Australia's partner visas are for de facto partners and spouses, which means migrants don't necessarily have to be married to apply for a Partner Visa.

It is best to speak with a licensed immigration advisor with regards to staying in Australia while waiting on the outcome of a partner visas. Most partner visas allow visa applicants to be in Australia while the Department of Home Affairs decide on the application, but some visas require that the applicant is outside of Australia when the Department issues the outcome.
