820/801 Onshore Partner Visa


Subclass 820 Partner visa (temporary) 

This visa lets the de facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen live in Australia temporarily. Getting this visa is the first step towards a permanent Partner visa (subclass 801). 

Applicant must have: 

  • be in a genuine relationship with your spouse or de facto partner who is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen 
  • be in Australia when you apply for this visa and when we decide your temporary visa application. Family who apply with you must also be in Australia. 

 

Eligibility 

  • Meet relationship requirements: 

In most cases, you must be the spouse or de facto partner of an: 

  • Australian citizen 
  • Australian permanent resident or 
  • eligible New Zealand citizen 

Your relationship can be with someone of the same or different sex. 

You might still be eligible for the visa if your relationship breaks down or your sponsor dies while we are considering your application. 

Married applicants 

To be a married applicant: 

  • you and your spouse must both be committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others 
  • your relationship with your spouse must be genuine and continuing 
  • you must live with your spouse or do not live apart on a permanent basis 
  • your marriage must be valid under Australian law 

To find out if your marriage is valid under Australian law, contact the relevant state or territory agency for births, deaths, and marriages. 

De facto partners 

To be a de facto partner, you must be in a de facto relationship. 

  • you and your partner are in a de facto relationship if all these apply: 
  • you are not married to each other 
  • you are committed to a shared life to the exclusion of all others 
  • your relationship is genuine and continuing 
  • you live together or do not live separately and apart on a permanent basis 
  • you are not related by family 

Usually, your de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before you apply for the visa. Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship. 

The 12-month requirement will not apply if you can show us compelling and compassionate circumstances exist to grant the subclass 820 visa. 

The 12-month requirement also will not apply if: 

  • your partner holds or held a permanent humanitarian visa 
  • your de facto relationship existed before we granted their visa 
  • Your de facto partner told us about the relationship before we granted their visa  

It also will not apply if you: 

  • are in a de facto relationship with a partner who is an applicant for a permanent humanitarian visa, or 
  • you have registered your relationship with an Australian authority such as a registry of births, deaths and marriages 

You might still be granted the temporary visa if your relationship has broken down or if your sponsor died.  

  • Have a sponsor: 

You must have a sponsor when you lodge your application and when you are on this visa. 

We must approve your sponsor. There are limitations on approval. 

You can’t change your sponsor. The person who sponsors you when you apply for the visa must be same person who sponsors you for 2 years after we grant your temporary 309 Partner visa. 

  • Be the right age:  

Married applicants must usually, be 18 or older when they apply. This is because usually, you must be 18 or older to be married under Australian law. 

Applicants in de facto relationships must be 18 or older when they apply. 

  • Have competent EnglishAll applicants aged 18 or over at the time of application must either have at least functional English or you will be asked to pay the second instalment of the visa application charge 

 

  • Best interests of the child: 

We might not grant this visa if it is not in the best interests of an applicant under 18. 

  • Meet other requirements: 
    • Meet our health requirement 
    • Meet our character requirement 
    • Pay your debts to the Australian Government 
    • Not have had a visa cancelled or a previous application refused
