There are a number of different types of visas that allow partners and families to live in Australia. The most common types of visas are the Partner Visa and the Family Visa.
The Partner Visa is a visa that allows the spouse or de facto partner of an Australian citizen or permanent resident to live in Australia. The partner must be aged 18 years or over and must be a member of the opposite sex to the Australian citizen or permanent resident.
The Family Visa is a visa that allows the family members of an Australian citizen or permanent resident to live in Australia. The family members must be aged 18 years or over and must be related to the Australian citizen or permanent resident by blood, marriage or adoption.
Both the Partner Visa and the Family Visa allow the holder to live, work and study in Australia. The holder of a Partner Visa can also apply for Australian citizenship.
Partner Migration Onshore (820 & 801) is a permanent visa for people who are in a relationship with an Australian citizen or permanent resident. This visa allows you to live and work permanently in Australia with your partner.
