The minimum requirements of the Subclass 100 visa are set out below. Please note that the 100 visa is the second part of the subclass 309 visa.
Permanent Partner Visa Requirements
You and your spouse or de facto partner must:
- have remained in a mutually exclusive relationship since lodgement of the initial Partner visa application
- be in a genuine and continuing relationship
- either live together, or live apart only on a temporary basis
Two years after lodging a successful Partner visa application, you will be eligible for permanent residency. The main criterion for the grant of a permanent visa is that your relationship meets the requirements listed above.
At this stage of the application process, you will need to provide evidence of your eligibility for permanent residency to the Department of Home Affairs (DHA). The evidence you provide must clearly show that you have continued to be in a genuine and mutually exclusive relationship with your de facto partner or spouse since your provisional Partner visa application was lodged.
You may be either in or outside Australia when your permanent visa is granted.
