Spouse and Partner Visas

Spouse and partner visas are available for people in committed relationships. These visas allow you to enter or remain in Australia on the basis of your married or de-facto relationship with your partner (a) on a temporary immigration visa (usually for a waiting period of approximately two (2) years from the date you applied for the visa) or (b) on a permanent visa if, after the waiting period (if applicable), your partner relationship still exists and you are still eligible for this visa. This visa includes dependant children and other eligible dependent relatives.
