Australia Spouse Visa

Australia Spouse Visa


Spouse visa or partner visa (Subclass 309) is known as the temporary visa and the main step for this visa is associated with the attainment of residency in Australia. This visa is meant for the spouses, permanent residents and de-facto partners of the permanent residents or citizens of Australia. The subclass visa 309 can be applied by an individual if he/she is an outsider. You can stay in Australia indefinitely until permanent resident visa under subclass 100 is approved. This visa can lead to permanent visa under subclass 100 more efficiently. Spouse visa under subclass 309 makes you eligible to study or work in Australia without any restriction. Spouse visa under subclass 309 may take a while to get approved, so one may apply provisional visa subclass 309 visas and then visitor visa under subclass 600. So while your spouse visa application 309 is under process you may visit your partner


Your partnership must be recognized under Australian law. If you are in a de facto relationship the duration of your relation must be of 12 months.


  • Visa subclass 309                          12 months
  • Visa subclass 100                         19 months


You may apply for both the visa at the same time. You may stay in Australia on visa subclass until a decision on your visa subclass 100 is made.. If you have been in a long term relationship with your spouse your visa subclass 100 may be decided faster. You need to provide documents for your long term relationship.


Your spouse in Australia must be eligible to sponsor you. Your spouse cannot sponsor you under provisional visa subclass 309 if
