Updated: 2 years ago
To receive the Partner Visa 820, you and your partner have to fulfill the following requirements:

  • You have to be married or in a de-facto relationship with an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen.
  • You must both be over the age of 18.
  • If you are in a de facto relationship, you must have lived together for at least 12 months. The time you were not in a de facto relationship (ie. distance relationship, dating) may not count.

  • You must not have a criminal background and meet the character requirements.
  • Your partner (sponsor) must not have sponsored someone else in the last five years. If they did sponsor someone else, it cannot have been in more than two occasions.
  • Your partner must not have been sponsored by another partner in the last five years.
