Depends on where they're applying from: Countries and Visa Subclasses Included in the Biometrics Program

You visit the relevant application centre (VFS global usually) and they'll take a facial scan and digital fingerprint there and then. Doesn't delay anything because the offshore partner visa process is a long process anyway.

Dear mamaus,

I have applied for partner 309/100 visa in Kenya. My application was sent form Australia by my Immi Agent to AHC here in Nairobi Kenya, hence they didn't have my biometirc data. After they received my application with out the biometric data, the Australian high commission sent acknowledmegnt letter and a letter request me to provide Biometric data at Australian Visa Application center. Though we are in different countries and for different visa subclass, the quote below is right from the letter I received sent by Australia High Commission in Nairobi:

"Processing your application
While every effort is made to process visa applications as quickly as possible, please note that until all applicants listed above have provided personal identifiers this application may
not be finalised. The provision of personal identifiers is only one of several stages in the visa assessment process however compliance with this request to provide them as quickly as possible will assist us to faster process your application.

If you do not provide your personal identifiers within 14 days after the day on which you are
taken to have received this letter, you may receive further correspondence requiring you to provide personal identifiers under Australia’s migration law. As this would be an additional process it has the potential to increase the processing time of your visa application"


Hope this answers your question.
Hassan
