Partner visas are for anyone engaged, married or in a de facto relationship with an Australian citizen, Australian Permanent Resident or Eligible New Zealand Citizen (Sponsor). Regardless of which country the Sponsor’s partner is from, it can in some cases take more than two years to have a partner visa approved.
Why does it take so long for a partner visa to be approved?
The application process for partner visas can be quite intense. Along with the application forms, applicants must submit documentation to support the application that shows proof that their relationship is ongoing and genuine.
While preparation of the application can take time, the wait time can also be attributed to people thinking they can complete the application themselves because they consider it easy or they are trying to save money.
Visas in general are complex and partner visas are no different. Incorrectly supplied information or documentation can result in your application being returned with a ‘request for information’ which will hold up the process. While you think you are saving money, you are actually losing time which could end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you have been waiting over 2 years and your application is still in process.
The team at Stojanovic and Associates will not only complete the application ensuring all information is correct, but they will also advise as to what supporting documentation is required to meet the proof of relationship criteria. To apply for a partner visa, applicants must show evidence that supports the following:
- Nature of the household
- Financial aspects
- Nature of commitment
- Social aspects of your relationship
- Future aspects of your relationship
