Australia Dependent Visa

The Subclass 100 is the most important stage of the offshore partner visa

So often I hear the people lodge the 309 provisional partner visa and forget about the 100 until it is too late. this can be because of bad planning, or a misunderstanding.

The 100 visa is the permanent stage of the partner visa and is applied for at the same time as you lodge the 309 offshore provisional partner visa. The 100 is normally applied for 2 years after the 309 is lodged, But in some circumstances you can be eligible earlier.

Visa Summary

This visa allows you to enter or remain in Australia on the basis of your married or de facto relationship with your partner:

  • on a temporary visa (usually for a waiting period of approximately two years from the date you applied for the visa)
  • on a permanent visa if, after the waiting period (if applicable), your partner relationship still exists and you are still eligible for this visa.

Your partner must provide sponsorship for you.

This visa is for you if you want to enter Australia on the basis of your relationship with your partner. Your partner must be one of the following:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian permanent resident
  • an eligible New Zealand citizen.

Note: As the partner or fiancé of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, you do not have an automatic right of permanent residence in Australia. If you want to reside permanently in Australia you must first apply for a permanent visa and be assessed against the legal criteria for the grant of that visa.

If you have a permanent Partner visa:

  • you are permitted to enter or remain permanently in Australia with your partner
  • you are entitled to work and study in Australia you may enroll in Australia’s medical
  • benefits expenses and hospital care scheme, Medicare
  • you may be eligible to receive certain social security payments (as you are exempt from the two year Newly Arrived Residents Waiting Period)
  • you may be eligible to apply for Australian citizenship (subject to the residency eligibility criteria)
  • you are permitted to enter or remain in Australia with your partner

How does this visa work?

Applying for Permanent visas

You apply for a permanent visa by completing and lodging one application.

  • If you meet all the legal criteria for the grant of the visa, you may be granted a temporary Partner visa (subclass 820). This visa remains valid until a decision is made on your permanent visa, which is usually two years after you initially applied for your visa.
  • If you still meet all legal requirements when your application is considered after the waiting period, you may be granted a permanent Partner visa (subclass 801).

Visa validity period

If you are granted a temporary Partner visa, it is normally valid throughout the waiting period until a decision is made on your permanent Partner visa application.

Visa application process

Applying for permanent visa 309

You apply for both a temporary visa and a permanent visa by completing and lodging one application. If you:

  • meet all the legal criteria for the grant of the visa, you will be eligible for the grant of a Partner (temporary) visa (subclass 820). This visa remains in effect until a decision is made on your permanent visa, which is usually considered two years after you initially applied for your visa.
  • still meet all legal requirements when your application is considered after the waiting period, you will be eligible for the grant of a Partner (permanent) visa (subclass 801)

  • Application forms

    Times Visas will assess each application individually and provide extensive checklists consisting of instructions to help you successfully complete the forms required.
