FIANCE / PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE VISA (Subclasses 309/100)

MARRIED PARTNERS (Subclasses 820/801)
This visa is based on marriage. The applicant must be legally married to their Australian partner (sponsor).

DEFACTO PARTNERS (Subclasses 820/801)
For persons in de facto relationships, two persons must have been in the relationship for at least 12 months just before lodging the application.
The applicant may be granted a temporary visa for two years after which he/she can be granted a permanent visa.
