Step 1 – Understanding the Requirements
- You and your spouse must both be committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others
- Your relationship with your spouse must be genuine and continuing
- You must live with your spouse or do not live apart on a permanent basis
- Your marriage or registered relationship must be valid under Australian law
De Facto Partners
To be a de facto partner, you must be in a de facto relationship. You and your partner are in a de facto relationship if all these apply:
- You are not married to each other
- You are committed to a shared life to the exclusion of all others
- Your relationship is genuine and continuing
- You live together or do not live separately and apart on a permanent basis
- You are not related by family
Usually your de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before you apply for the visa. Importantly you may consider marriage to expediate the process. Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship.
The 12-month de facto requirement will not apply if you can show us compelling and compassionate circumstances exist to grant the subclass 820 visa.
The 12-month requirement also will not apply if:
- Your partner holds or held a permanent humanitarian visa
- Your de facto relationship existed before we granted their visa
- Your de facto partner told us about the relationship before we granted their visa
It also will not apply if you:
- Are in a de facto relationship with a partner who is an applicant for a permanent humanitarian visa, or
- You have registered your relationship with an Australian authority such as a registry of births, deaths and marriages
You might still be granted the temporary visa if your relationship has broken down or if your sponsor died.
Have a Sponsor
You and anyone who applies for the visa with you must have a sponsor when you lodge your application and when you are on this visa.
Your sponsor is usually your partner who is an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
The department of Immigration must approve your sponsor. There are limitations on approval.
You can’t change your sponsor. The person who sponsors you when you apply for the visa must be same person who sponsors you for 2 years after your temporary 820 partner visa is granted.
Be the Right Age
Married applicants must, usually, be 18 or older when they apply. This is because, usually, you must be 18 or older to be married under Australian law.
Applicants in de facto relationships must be 18 or older when they apply.
Meet the Department’s Health Requirement
You, and any members of the family unit or dependent child who applies for the visa with you, must meet the Australian government’s health requirement. Family members who don’t accompany you to Australia might also need to meet health requirements.
Meet the Department’s Character Requirement
You, and any members of the family unit or dependent child who applies for the visa with you, must meet the Australian government’s character requirement.
Pay your Debts to the Australian Government
If you or any family members (including those who don’t apply for the visa with you) owe the Australian government money, you or they must have paid it back or arranged to pay it back.
Best Interests of the Child
We might not grant this visa if it is not in the best interests of an applicant under 18.
Please provide details of your female preferences, would you be willing to accept children with the visa application.
This is a temporary visa which will lead to a permanent residency visa after two years approximately providing the relationship is still ongoing.
