Important Reforms in Australian Partner Visa Applications

December 2018, 15
EMAIL  Print A+
New legislation has presently been launched that will significantly improve whether an application of Australian Partner visa can be lodged while the candidate is in Australia.

The current Migration Amendment (Other Measures and Family Violence) Bill was moved by Parliament on 10 Dec 2018.

It is still to be approved when the current law will take force and partner visa appeals lodged until they are to be evaluated below the present partner visa application demands.

Current Process of Partner Visa Application

Part of the requirements for Partner PR needs the visa candidate to be sponsored by a permanent resident of Australia, citizen of  Australia or qualified citizen of New Zealand. Together, the visa candidate and their partner present their appeals to the Home Affairs Department.

Lodging a genuine partner visa while in Australia provides the visa applicant for receiving a Bridging Visa A (B.V.A) which will take effect when their existing visa expires.

The B.V.A holder will then be authorized to continue in Australia until a choice is made on the partner appeal. During this processing time, the B.V.A holder will also be allowed to Medicare and have complete work rights.

New Changes in Australian Partner visa

The new Bill demands the partner initially to lodge their sponsorship appeal and have it accepted prior partner visa could be lodged.

It is not clear how long the process of decision for the sponsorship appeal will take, and contemporary process times are around 12 to 18 months.


To minimize the impact, we suggest lodging the application of partner visa as soon as you are qualified.

The application process of Partner visa may appear, and in some instances this is. But, there are several complexities which can appear in rejection with no refund of the application fees of visa if you are not conscious of some of the little-known facts.
