Partner (Provisional) Visa (subclass 820)

This visa allows the de facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen or permanent resident to live in Australia on a temporary basis. Obtaining this visa is the first step towards a permanent Partner visa (subclass 100).


Usually your relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before the application is lodged. Time spent dating or in an online relationship may not count as being in a de facto relationship.

  • You are committed to a shared life to the exclusion of 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

Please Note:

This is an option for those applicants who cannot wait the 10-12 months that it is currently taking the Australian Government to process Partner visas outside of Australia. We can arrange a 3 month tourist visa for the applicant and lodge the Partner visa whilst the applicant is in Australia. Once the 3 month tourist visa expires the Bridging Visa will kick in and the applicant can stay in Australia until a decision is made on the Partner visa.

Work rights will only be applicable once the 3 month tourist visa expires and the Bridging Visa is active.
