  • Requirements

    For married couples, the marriage must be legally recognised in Australia.

    For de facto couples, the relationship must have been at least 12 months and genuine. This includes same-sex partnerships.

    Applicants must also satisfy health and character requirements.

    If successful, initially a temporary 2-year visa is granted, which can be extended to permanent residence if the relationship is ongoing and assessed as genuine
