Australian Partner/Fiance’ Visa For Filipinos

Filipinas, are you married, engaged or in a genuine de facto (common law or “live in”) relationship with an Australian citizen, Permanent Resident, or Eligible New Zealand Citizen? If so, congratulations! You’re in the right place and one step closer in fulfilling your future plans together with your partner in Australia.

Applying for a Partner Visa from the Philippines can be very complicated and complex. Before gathering your documents and planning future trips, you have to know and understand the right visa pathway that suits your situation. Below are different visa pathways that you should definitely consider before taking any action:

If you’re applying for a Partner Visa from the Philippines, and you’re in a genuine de facto (common law or “live in”) relationship with an Australian citizen, Permanent Resident, or Eligible New Zealand Citizen. Then a Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 309) and Permanent Visa (Subclass 100) is the right visa pathway for you. This is preferred by most Australian – Filipino couples because it does not require marriage before submitting the application. You can get married in the Philippines or anywhere within the processing time; however it’s not mandatory. This will surely give them an opportunity to take things slow and progress with their future plans in Australia. So, if you can’t handle the cold and sleepless nights without your partner beside you, then you should definitely apply for this visa.

An onshore application is a whole different process. This visa pathway means you’re currently in Australia when you’ve submitted your Partner Visa and continues to stay there before a decision has been made. Unlike the offshore visa pathway, this visa is not the visa-of-choice of most Australian-Filipino couples because it has more strict rules and guidelines when it comes to the application process. However, this the best visa pathway for any Australia-Filipina couples who want to pursue a life together in Australia as soon as possible. There are a few things you need to take into consideration before applying for this visa:

  • The Filipino applicant must apply for the Partner Visa before their substantive visa in Australia expires.
  • The wedding must take place before the visa application is submitted.
  • Dependent children who they want to include in the onshore application must also be in Australia at the time of submission.

This visa is undoubtedly a complicated and complex process, and it should only be done by couples who can spare a lot of time and effort in going through the process from the beginning till the end and who are well-organized to meet deadlines and making sure they meet immigration’s expectations.

It might be a lot to take in, but aside from being close to your partner/spouse in Australia, there are definitely perks and advantages in getting your Partner Visa.

  • Work and live in Australia indefinitely.
  • Opportunity to study in Australia.
  • Enroll in Medicare, Australia’s state-run healthcare program.
  • Opportunity to apply for Australian citizenship.
  • Sponsor relatives for permanent residence.
  • Travel in and out of Australia as you please.
