Are you married or in a de-facto relationship with a Nigerian? If so, then you’re a very lucky person. I can’t blame you, a Nigerian knows how to speak his/her mind without any sign of fear. They have the ability to express themselves effectively. They are also very versatile and are able to provide all the needs of their partner, while simultaneously exhibiting all the defining qualities of a westernized person. Yes, you heard that right, they certainly can do both!! Lastly, they’re the backbone of the family, and will respect his/her mate/spouse to accord his/her duties as a loving partner.
We can’t deny Interracial relationships are very beautiful. Being emotionally inclined with someone from a different race exposes you to a different culture. You’ll learn so much more about them and will inevitably break the divide that is existent for many years become we are more aware and empathetic to different types of people around us. So, if you want to sponsor your Nigerian partner in Australia then, you’re in the right place. Below are the types of Partner Visas you can apply for your Nigerian partner.
If you are in Australia:
Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 820) and Permanent visa (subclass 801)- For people who wants to stay in Australia with their partner. Their partner must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. If two years after you apply the relationship is still genuine and continuing, a permanent visa may be granted.
If you are outside Australia:
Partner Temporary Visa (Subclass 309) and Permanent Visa (Subclass 100)- For people from overseas who wants to enter and stay in Australia with their partner. Their partner must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen. If two years after you apply, the relationship is still genuine and continuing, a permanent visa may be granted.
Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300) -This visa allows people to come to Australia to marry their fiancé.
The Prospective Marriage Visa is for people who want to come to Australia to marry their prospective spouse. This visa is temporary and is valid for nine months. The nine months begins on the date your visa is granted.
You must be outside Australia when you lodge your Prospective Marriage Visa application. When your Prospective Marriage Visa (Subclass 300) is granted, you can enter Australia. Once in Australia, you must marry your intended spouse (your fiancee) within the time-frame of the visa. Once you are married, you must lodge your Partner Visa (Subclasses 820 and 801) application before the expiry of your Prospective Marriage Visa if you wish to remain in Australia.
ADVANTAGES OF GETTING GRANTED YOUR PERMANENT PARTNER VISA
Anyone can prepare and lodge a partner visa application in Nigeria. The platform used to submit student visa applications is intended to be accessible and visible for everyone by the Department of Home Affairs. However, not everyone can successfully file their partner visa in Nigeria the right way. There’s more to the process than meets the eyes. Plus, migration laws are complex and are constantly changing which requires someone who has an in-depth understanding of the law as well a valid credential to fully understand other aspects of the law that may impact your immigration process and to successful lodge your visa application. The Department of Home Affairs may implement changes on the platform or the legislation which can jeopardize your application if you have no idea what it is.
