Changes to Partner Visa – Effective April 17th

Immigration have announced that they will be introducing a change to partner visas. From April 17 2019, the Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Act 2018 will commence. This means the Sponsor (your Australian partner) must apply for sponsorship first and be approved BEFORE the Partner Visa application can be lodged.

Therefore applicants will need to lodge the sponsorship and then lodge the application once the sponsorship has been approved.
