Australia Partner Visa subclass 309/100

Permanent residency in Oz on the basis of a partner visa requires two steps that involve the Subclass 309 visa followed by the Subclass 100 visa.

Partner Visa Subclass 309
This is basically a provisional visa and is the first step to obtain residency in Down Under. This mainly involves the residency requirements of spouses and de facto partners of the existing citizens of Australia. This is also for the eligible permanent New Zealand citizens who currently reside in Australia. You can apply for this 309 Visa, if you are outside the territories of Australia during applying and approval.

Partner Visa (Subclass 100)
This is the second step to gain permanent residency in Down Under, after the Subclass 309 Visa. It allows the spouse or de facto partners of an Australian citizen to reside in Australia permanently. It also allows the spouse of partners of any permanent or eligible citizen of New Zealand to reside in Australia. You can apply for this visa only once you own the Subclass 309 visa. You can either be in or outside Australia at the time of the grant of this Visa.

Who all would be suitable for Subclass 309 visa?
You can apply for the Subclass 309 visa if your Australian partner is legally married to you or intends to marry you in the foreseeable future (before you apply for the migration application). You can also apply for the visa if you and your partner have been sharing a de facto relationship for a minimum of 12 months before you submit the application.

You can also opt for this visa if you met your Australian partner online and have been in a long distance relationship with them.

Who all would be suitable for Subclass 100 visa?
All those candidates who already hold the Subclass 309 visa and have passed the necessary assessments by the Department of Immigration can apply for the Subclass 100 visa.

Both the Partner Visas are applicable to heterosexual and homosexual relationships.

How to apply?
You will have to file only a single application and pay only one application fee for both the Subclass 309 and Subclass 100 visas.
