Relationship Checklist

For all applicants in a spousal or partner relationship

It's incredibly important to get the relationship right. That is - for the Department of Home Affairs case officers at least.

The unusual list of requirements from the Department can be exhausting, and highly subjective, but their are 4 main pillars to any solid application. View our latest list and learn about what the Department expect you to do, keep and evidence in your relationship.

This list applies to you if you are applying for any visa with or for a partner, including proving your spousal relationship on a skilled visa application.

April 17 - Partner Visa Changes

As of 17 April 2019 the old partner visa application process will no longer be accepted by the Department of Home Affairs, giving way to the new 2 stage partner processing system.

This means those who want to apply for a partner visa must:

  • Apply for their eligible Australian partner - spouse to become a 'sponsor';
  • Wait until the sponsor application is processed and approved;
  • Apply for their partner visa.

The Department - in their explanitory memorandum -  state the intention is to align Australians sponsoring overseas spouses and partners with Australian companys sponsoring temporary overseas skilled workers.
