Types of Australian Partner Visas (subclasses 100, 309, 801 and 820):

Same-sex marriages

The practice of same-sex marriage has recently gained popularity in the United Kingdom and the United States, so it’s good news that Australia is also welcoming same-sex marriage this year.

This historic recognition allows the Immigration Department to accept petitions for Australian residence from same-sex spouses.

New Law verse the old

In the past, same-sex couples needed to prove they were in a committed relationship for the de-facto partnership status to be considered. The spousal visa will now only be available to same-sex couples who can prove they are legally married. Lodging visa applications will become much less of a hassle for devoted couples as a result of this.

Positive vote for same sex marriage

When asked about same-sex marriage in a postal poll in November 2017, 61.6% of Australians gave their yes. The voting turnout was about thirteen million.¬†Australia was a country that acknowledged fairness and respect, and the result was a vote for dedication, justice, and love. “Unequivocal and overwhelming” was the verdict, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said.

Types of Australian Partner Visas (subclasses 100, 309, 801 and 820): Changes to Visas

These changes pertain to Partner visas (subclasses 100, 309, 801 and 820) and same-sex marriage in Australia.

If you are engaged to a person of the same sex and want to marry them in Australia, you may apply for a Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300). With this visa, you may visit Australia and tie the knot with your spouse within nine months of your arrival. After that, you can apply for a partner visa.

Old system was stressful  and expensive

In the past, same-sex couples had it worse when it came to de-facto partner visa applications, which meant they had to spend more time and money and were subject to more scrutiny than heterosexual couples. Legal recognition of a marriage that took place abroad is also a requirement for this visa. We expect more individuals to apply for this visa now that they may use a marriage certificate, which should make the procedure less stressful.
