A basic overview of the partner visa options for migration to Australia. How to choose the right visa for your situation based on your relationship status and your location at time of application. We consider the 300 Prospective Marriage Visa, 820 Partner visa and 309 Partner visa.
The 300 Prospective Marriage Visa is suitable for those outside Australia and wish to marry their sponsor in the near future. 820 Partner Visa is for applicants inside Australia and either are married, have lived together for 12 months, have registered their relationship or qualify for compassionate and compelling circumstances. 309 Partner Visa is for applicants who are currently outside Australia and either are married, have lived together for 12 months, have registered their relationship or qualify for compassionate and compelling circumstances.
