Whether or not your Australian Partner resides in Australia or somewhere
else, if you are in a genuine, veritable and selective relationship, you may have the option
to acquire a Partner Visa, which would permit you to live in Australia with your partner.
Under the Partner migration stream, spouse or de-facto partners of
Australian permanent residents or Citizens may be eligible to apply for a temporary visa
which in future might lead to permanent residency.
Lots of criteria are set by the Department of Home Affairs, among which
the most important one is being able to provide evidence of a genuine, veritable, selective
and continuing relationship.
Qualifying applicants for Temporary Partner visas are granted a
temporary visa for 2 years. A permanent visa will be granted if and only if the applicants
continue to be in a genuine relationship for 2 years after lodgement of the application.
