Eligibility to apply for an Australian Partner Visa
Partner visas are for applicants who are in a marital or de-facto relationship (including those in a same-sex relationship) or who are engaged to be married to an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand Citizen. If you are a partner of a New Zealand Citizen who is not an eligible New Zealand Citizen, you can apply for a subclass 461 temporary visa.

Our experience has shown that many applicants waste time, energy and money assembling far too many documents which in most cases will be discarded by Department of Home Affairs case officers. To be eligible for a partner visa, it is not enough for you to simply show that you are married or in a de-facto relationship.
