Hi, I am currently planning on applying for a Partner visa. My partner and I have being together for 4 years and have lived together for almost 1 year. What is the possibility of getting the permanent partner visa straight away. Or if I do get the temporary visa will I get the Permanent visa as soon as the 2 years of living together complete. Or else will i have to wait another 2 years from date of application to apply for Permanent visa.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi Sarahmay

Applicants generally need to wait 2 years from when they lodge the original partner visa application to become eligible for the permanent partner visa.

However, if you have been in a long-term relationship (that is 3 years+ or 2 years+ with a child) you will be eligible for a permanent visa straight after the temporary visa is granted.

You would need to prove that you have been in a de facto relationship for at least 3 years. As such, you would need to explain why you were not living together for the first 3 years of your de facto relationship and prove that the relationship still existed despite there being no co-habitation.
