No i live outside of Australia as a refugeeDo you mean that you hold a refugee visa? Are you living in Australia? If you're in Australia, you'd be applying for an 820 visa (the 309 is the version if you are outside Australia). If you hold a refugee visa, read the grant notice to see if it mentions any limitations. But in any case, it may be a good idea to speak with a registered migration to make sure your partner visa application is solid.
