Hi everyone,

I'm looking for information regarding the 5 year limitation and who it actually applies to.

My partner and I have been together for almost two years and want to apply for a partner visa once his student visa expires in October, but our immigration lawyer wants us to apply in June. My partner was previously on a partner visa with his ex and it has only been 4 years since they applied. We have seen an immigration agent as well and she was in complete opposition to our immigration lawyer, saying the 5 year limitation applies to both of us.

I know there is definitely a 5 year limit for the sponsor, which is fine because I've never sponsored anyone, but is there also a limit for the person being sponsored?

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

The sponsorship limitation does not apply to visa applicants, only to the sponsor.

Don’t bother with migration agents/ lawyers who don’t understand such basic facts.
