Partner Visa
As the name implies, this is a visa for married partners of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, and qualified New Zealand citizens to enter and remain permanently in Australia. Married partners include same-sex partners as well as opposite-sex spouses. It is our responsibility at BMW to take care of obtaining this visa for you through a careful evaluation, counselling, and visa application procedure.

Although there are three main subclasses of partner visas, these visas can be essentially categorized into two groups: partner visas and visas for prospective marriages. The kind of relationship you are in will determine the sort of visa you should apply for.
Following are the types of relationship and the visas that correspond to them:
Subclass Partner Visa
There are two different kinds of subclasses: temporary and permanent. Partners who meet the legal requirements for the grant of the visa are initially given a temporary visa. If there is a long-term partnership or offspring of the relationship, a permanent visa may be issued after an eligibility period or shortly after the temporary visa is granted.

Additionally, fiancés (intended spouses) of Australian citizens, permanent residents, and qualifying New Zealand citizens are permitted temporary immigration into Australia under the Partner Category Migration.

You are not, however, automatically qualified for permanent residence in Australia if you are the partner or fiancé of an eligible Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, or eligible New Zealand citizen. If you want to live in Australia permanently, you must first apply for a permanent visa and meet the requirements set forth by the law before that visa may be granted.
Let us have a cursory look at the partner subclass visas based on your location at the time of application:
