Here's How Hansen Migration Can Help You

What visas are available to same-sex couples in Australia?

Who is eligible for these visas?

Partner and Prospective Marriage visas are available to spouses or de facto partners of Australian citizens, permanent residents of Australia, and eligible New Zealand citizens. If you are in a genuine, committed relationship with one of the above, you may be able to apply.

You may also be able to include eligible family members in your application.

What are the requirements for these visas?

Depending on the subclass, these visas have several different requirements. They include:

Each requirement is assessed against strict criteria set by the Australian government. Failing
any test in the application can result in the visa being refused, and your application fee
probably won’t be refunded. You can also be barred from applying for this visa again.

or Prospective Marriage visa application. At Hansen Migration, our agents are up to date on
current laws and requirements. We can help catch any mistakes in your application, reduce
