Partner Visa Options
Subclass 300 – Prospective Marriage
The fiancé or prospective marriage visa (Subclass 300) is a temporary entry permit that allows you and your spouse to be married in Australia. This visa is available only for offshore applicants. It lasts up until nine months (or longer). Once you are married, you will be able to transition to a Partner Visa (Subclass 820/801) onshore.
This visa is preferable for couples who never lived together but have met in person and know each other well. This option is also most suitable for arranged marriages.
Don’t rush to get married – talk to us first. A marriage certificate without any evidence of cohabitation will not guarantee a successful visa outcome.
Subclass 309/100 – De Facto or Spouse
