Partner Visa

Partner visa options

The partner visa application options for Australia are:

  • Subclass 820 Provisional Partner Visa / Subclass 801 Permanent Partner Visa (for applicants who apply while they are inside Australia)
  • Offshore Subclass 309 Provisional Partner Visa / Subclass 100 Permanent Partner Visa (for applicants who apply while they are outside Australia)
  • Prospective Marriage Visa Subclass 300 (Fiancee Visa) – Note this visa can only be lodged by applicants while they are outside Australia.

If you have read through the partner visa options and have doubts or questions, please contact us for an initial consultation.  We often see ‘do it yourself’ cases that become complicated unnecessarily and some simple advice through consultation may have avoided delays and complications.


Due to the large volume of applications and some unscrupulous activities within the partner program, the immigration department review all partner applications in detail.  If you receive a ‘request for further information’ or ‘invitation to comment’ notice, engaging assistance from a Migration Agent with experience in partner applications can assist with addressing the request and getting the application back on track.

Not one relationship or set of circumstances are the same.  If you have any complications, issues or general concerns, we can help.  We have successfully handled applications with the following complications:

  • Australian partner previously sponsored for a partner for visa and may be subject to sponsorship exclusion
  • Couples that live apart for extensive periods of time
  • Couples where one party is separated and still legally married to another person
  • Applicants in Australia who have had previous application refusal or visa cancellation
  • Applicants who no longer hold a valid visa
  • Couples with children to a previous relationship included in the application
  • Couples who have not be in a de facto relationship for more than 12 months prior to application
  • Applicants with character or health issues

If you believe you qualify for one of the above visas and want some further information and assistance, please contact us via our online enquiry form.

  • Testimonial

    We were so relieved to find someone who not only knew what they were doing but who also were genuinely interested in our plight to get a visa for my partner to be able to stay in Australia.”

  • “We have tried a number of migration agent companies in Australia within the last few years, and Glenn is a breath of fresh air. We’ve had problems with promises made by other agents before, but GW Migration are very open, honest and trustworthy. Glenn’s experience was clear to see right from the initial enquiry and there is no way we would every consider choosing a different agent ever again – Glenn and GW Migration come highly recommended from the team at Bean Media Group”

    We highly recommend GW Migration to everybody. Glenn helped us in our application throughout the whole process; always being in touch, suggesting us, providing guidelines, encouraging us and always being positive in a very professional manner. We are glad that we choose GW Migration for us and its affordable not like other money making agencies. We are very satisfied with the results. Thank you so much GW Migration and team.

  • Glenn and his assistant Liz were very professional and helpful; they answered all of my questions quickly and provided great advice. Very happy with their services and would recommend them to anyone applying for any visa in Australia as the process can feel very overwhelming and intimidating.

    – Jessica Engle

  • My son and I were granted our Regional Sponsored Migration Visas last week and would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude for all the guidance and hard work that Glenn put in to our not so straight forward case. Throughout the whole process which at many times can seem so perplexing and intimidating Glenn provided us with sound and concise advise and helped to keep the morale up. The amount of red tape and documentation necessary for this process can seem like a logistical nightmare at times but step by step he got us through it and to the finishing line in the end!

    The fact that we were granted our visas will have life-long repercussions for both my son and I and therefore I recommend to anyone out there about to embark on this process to use a reputable and trustworthy immigration agency, such as GW Migration. We have been absolutely elated since hearing the news last week and could not have done it without them.

  • My wife and i chose Glenn Wellburn because we felt he was honest and very professional in his work.Prior to coming to him we met with several migration officers who did not seem clear about our case nor did we feel we could trust our future to them.

    I would recommend Glenn to anyone seeking professional advice on matters of migration to Australia. He is solid in his preparation of documentation and is caring in his approach.

    Thanks again Glenn!

    – Anjali and Greg

  • After 2 years of trying to organize papers to apply for permanent residency myself, I came to see Glenn to see if he could help. After about 3 weeks, I received notification that my application for a Returned Residents Visa had been approved. They were professional in all that they did and because of their help, mine and my family’s future is now secure and looks a lot more promising.
