Partner visas allow the married couples of de facto partners of Australian citizens or permanent residents to travel to and remain in Australia with their partner. Partner visas are processed in two stages – the visa applicant partner first applies for a provisional visa and then for a permanent visa. They must be sponsored by their partner and that sponsorship must be approved.
Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300)
This is an offshore visa for applicants intending to come to Australia and marry their partners who are either Australian citizen or a permanent resident. Once married they can apply for a Partner visa to remain in Australia permanently.
