About Partner Visa Subclass 309/100
Aussizz, as a single window solution provider to all your visa facilitating needs in Australia, extends its services for 'Partner Visas'. This visa enables entry to Australia on a temporary or permanent basis depending on eligibility. Partner Visas issued under Subclass category 309 are temporary in nature while those under 100 are permanent. Both these categories are issued to immigrants on basis of their relationship to an Australian resident.
This visa empowers you to enter and stay in this country on basis of your marriage or relationship to your Australian partner. A 309 visa would allow you temporary entry and residence for a period of two years from date of visa application. Partner Visa 100 enables you to remain in Australian territory beyond this two year period, subject to sustenance of relationship with your partner. For either of these Visa types, sponsorship is provided by your partner.
Partner sponsoring such a Visa must either be:
- Permanent resident of Australia
- Citizen of Australia
- Eligible citizen of New Zealand
It may, however, be noted that being an offshore partner of any of the aforesaid categories does not necessarily qualify you for a permanent visa. Your eligibility is subject to conditions of Australian immigration rules and assessment of your application as per standing regulations.
Eligibility for Applicants
Eligibility conditions differ for married applicants, de-facto applicants, and family members.
Your marriage must be considered legal under existing Australian law. Normally marriages treated legal in other countries are valid in Australia. However underage, polygamous, and same-sex marriages are not considered valid in this country. At the time of application for a Partner Visa, you must be legally married.
For de-facto eligibility, an applicant must have attained 18 years by age. There should not exist any familial relationship in such applications. In other words, an applicant and his/her sponsor must not be in a descendant-ancestor relationship or vice versa. An applicant and a sponsor must also not have a common parent. Any adoptive relationship is deemed unfit for this category of application.
Candidates applying through this category could be dependent children or dependent relatives. Dependent applicants must satisfy certain character and health requirements to be eligible to apply for this visa category.
