The more recent rejection rate is nearer 10%, not 50%.I read a while ago that the rejection rate for partner visas is close to 50%, yet I doubt that half of all visa applicants are illegitimate, which means that somewhere in there, genuine people with real relationships are being denied. What do you think causes this?
I've also seen these figures of Partner visa rejection rates:
- 53.8% in 2015-16 and 47% in 2016-17.
More recent rates are nearer 10%.
In 2018-19, the refusal rate for the Subclass 820 visa was 7.19%
In 2019-20, the refusal rate was 4.84%
