Australia Visa Agent for Same Sex Partner Visas: the Process

In order to file for a Same Sex Partner Visa, you must submit a single application that includes both the temporary and permanent visas. In essence, simultaneous submission of an application is required for both the 820 and 801 companion visas.

Your intended beneficiary may be required to possess a combination of the 309 and 100 companion visas if they are outside the country at the time you submit your application.

In order to apply for the first visas – 820 and 309 – you must meet the below requirements:

De Facto Partners:

  1. An eligible individual, usually your partner, must sponsor you.
  2. Neither you nor your de facto partner may be a member of your immediate family, and you must both be 18 or older when you apply for the visa.
  3. Prove your relationship is genuine and continuing
  4. Proof that the partnership has lasted for a minimum of twelve months.
  5. Complete all personal health and character development tasks.

For Spouses:

  1. An eligible individual must sponsor you.
  2. To be eligible for a sponsor, you need to be legally married to your spouse.
  3. Proof that you and your spouse are fully committed to each other in your role as partners.
  4. Complete all personal health and character development tasks.

From Partner Visa to Permanent Residency in Australia

After satisfying the minimum requirements, you may submit an application for one of the temporary partner visas. This will remain legitimate pending a decision by the US Department of Homeland Security regarding your permanent visa application (for the 801 or 100 visa). After submitting your initial applications for the two visas, this could take anywhere from six months to a year, contingent on your ability to uphold the aforementioned requirements.
