Include married or de facto partners (including those in a same-sex relationships). The application can be lodged in Australia if the applicant is in Australia and holds a visa that allows this to occur, or alternatively outside Australia.
This is commonly called nicknamed the ‘fiancée visa’. It has a nine month validity period and the application must be lodged outside of Australia. One in Australia, the couple may marry within the nine months to then be eligible for the Partner Visa which is then lodged in Australia.
Partner visa can include defacto OR married couples. To meet the initial ‘defacto’ criteria couples have to:
- have either lived together for 12 months OR
- have lived together for less than 12 months but have a government defacto relationship certificate
